Plot: The Wingfeather Saga is a four-book set by Andrew Peterson. Set in the imaginary world of Aerwier, we meet the Igibys—Nia, the mother; Podo, the grandfather; and the children, Janner, Tink, and Leeli. They live in Glipwood, in the country of Skree, right off the Dark Sea of Darkness. Life is good—besides the cruel, evil Fangs of Dang patrolling around every corner. Besides the dreaded Black Carriage that comes and takes children away across the Dark Sea, never to be seen again.
The Igibys thought their life was fairly normal. But when the Fangs come after them, demanding the Lost Jewels of Anneria (a legendary kingdom across the Dark Sea), suddenly their life is anything but normal. To save their lives, they have to attack and even kill some Fangs. And the other times, it is the mysterious Peet the Sock Man who saves them. But all that is happening is: more Fangs are coming for them. So the Igibys must flee; but to where? All the free countries of Skree have been conquered by Fangs. Maybe it’s Anneria where they need to go......
Spread throughout four action-paced, danger-filled books: 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 (which are to be read in that order, please) the Wingfeather Saga is a series you do not want to miss. Impossible-to-put-down adventures, with rich descriptions and lots of mystery, from the evil Fangs to mysterious Peet the Sock Man to sweet, crippled Leeli—full of dangerous animals, too, including toothy cows and horned hounds and the very annoying thwaps....I thoroughly enjoyed all four books, not to mention the ending was phenomenal! I give the Wingfeather Saga 5, out of 5 whistleharps!
