Jola5 Stars Out Of 5Best in the Series!October 6, 2020JolaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Yes, for ALL the stars, this one's the best so far! What, only 5 stars! (sigh) The new hardcover edition has beautiful illustrations in just the right places. The story drew me in from the beginning. The main characters keep growing in depth and the more I understand of them, the more I love them. The new characters and setting, the people of the Green Hollows, are absolutely delightful! I had so much fun experiencing their rough and tumble culture. The author has a great flare for combining humor and suspense, loyalty and betrayal, deep sorrow and joy. There are few books that I will read more than once. This is my second time through the series and I know it won't be my last.

WaterBrook is re-releasing Andrew Peterson's Wingfeather Saga as hardcovers with new cover art and illustrations, with the first two novels released back in March and the final two on Oct. 6.
The third novel, "The Monster in the Hollows," picks up immediately after the series' second installation, with the Wingfeather family seeking refuge in Green Hollows. As siblings Janner (Throne Warden), Kalmar (High King) and Leeli (Song Maiden), along with their grandfather Podo, mother Nia, friend and book lover Oskar, and uncle Artham return to their family's ancestral home, they must overcome suspicion and discrimination against Kal who is now partly a Gray Fang -- enemies of the Hollows.
As the family attempts to earn the townsfolk's trust, they must dig deep into themselves to learn their true gifts and worth. And as Artham leaves to help rescue Janner's friend Sara Cobbler from the horrific Fork Factory where Janner once found himself enslaved, the Wingfeathers must figure out how to protect the town from an impending attack from evil creatures, all while protecting their own place in the community.
A story of love, sacrifice and identity, "The Monster in the Hollows" will appeal to all ages and is a delightful story that will deeply move the reader. Besides creating an entertaining and fantastical tale, Peterson builds many great lessons in it, like we are more than our outward appearance; the sense of aching for a home; the impact of sharing our gifts and light with others; finding hope and courage; we're better for our scars; sacrificing ourselves for others; and how to deal with feeling inadequate.
"The Monster in the Hollow," which contains some amazing jaw-dropping moments, also reminds us we can find strength not only in ourselves, but in the One who made us: "Every time he let his heart believe that they were out of danger, something dangerous found them. Every time. He ignored the quiet inner voice that reminded him that the Maker had sustained him, had brought him safely to Chimney Hill."
Once again, the illustrations in this re-release are fun and glorious, and the cover is sublime.
Fans of the fantastical worlds created by C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, The Spiderwick Chronicles, or Matt Mikalatos' Sunlit Lands series will love these stories.
Five stars out of five.

It eats people who don't read these books. At least I think so. I wouldn't know because I've read them 3 times to my family, just to be safe. And because they are one of the best series of books I've ever read aloud to my family, hence the 3 times. So my family is definitely safe.
I'd read them to your family, just to be on the safe side. You won't regret it.
