The Wingfeather Saga by Andrew Peterson
I’m kicking off my book reviews with the best of the best. The Wingfeather Saga is my favorite book series EVER! I am not joking. I would recommend it to anyone (like me!) who likes a little adventure in their lives.
Janner Igiby and his younger brother Tink and sister Leeli live in a world run by Fangs, evil lizard men, who scare the Skreeans and kidnap their children. When the Igiby children get in trouble with a particualar Fang, it sets of a chain of events that change their world forever. They must avoid Fangs, Stranders, toothy cows, cave blats, and all the other creatures and people that make Aerwiar such a dangerous place to live.
Andrew Peterson creates a world that is so lifelike that I sometimes (no, all the time) think it really exists. Each book reveals more secrets and is more exciting and more unpredictable than the last. The thing I like most is that I can actually relate to the characters. I know what they are feeling because I’ve felt it before in my own life. Fear. Excitement. Dread. Hope. It’s all there.
I’m so excited that Andrew Peterson is starting a book club of his own with this series. It will kick off on 1/26/15 and if you want to read the book series along with other fans, you can get more information here: http://wingfeathersaga.com/introducing-ban-rona-book-club/
The four books are: On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness, North! Or be Eaten, The Monster in the Hollows and The Warden and the Wolf King. My personal favorite is the last one but resist the urge to jump ahead.
