Janner Igiby, his brother, Tink, and their disabled sister, Leeli, are gifted children as all children are, loved well by a noble mother and ex-pirate grandfather. But they will need all their gifts and all that they love to survive the evil pursuit of the venomous Fangs of Dang, who have crossed the dark sea to rule the land with malice. The Igibys hold the secret to the lost legend and jewels of good King Wingfeather of the Shining Isle of Anniera.
Full of characters rich in heart, smarts, and courage, On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness is a tale children of all ages will cherish, families can read aloud, and readers' groups are sure to enjoy discussing for its many layers of meaning.
Artist Justin Gerard has illustrated several childrens books, including The Lightlings storybooks for young readers by R.C. Sproul. He lives in Greenville, South Carolina, and works as the chief creative officer for Portland Studios.
Aside from the terrors of the Fangs, Janner comes to discover many secrets kept from him and his siblings. From the mysteries of Janners father, Esben, and the hidden jewels of his mother to the famous yet strange Armulyn the Bard and the seemingly fabled land of Anniera, readers are sure to be on the edge of their seats with curiosity and tensions. Andrew Petersons book is just complex enough to be taken seriously, yet just silly enough to be continually amusing. With slapstick humor, jokes, and amusingly skillful storytelling, the author really gets the reader to enjoy the book. It is written well, definitely for an adolescent age group, and is only the first in a whole series titled The Wingfeather Saga. Definitely a recommendation!
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God (Philippians 4:6, ESV). With all the problems going on in their world, Janner and his family trust in the Maker. This should tell the readers something. In all the troubles and storms of life, the Lord is there. He is the God of peace and love. He is in control, and so we should worry over nothing. And thats just one of the many lessons to be gained from this book. Great writing, Peterson! -- Joshua Wagner, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
