    1. I LITERALLY CANNOT EVEN. This book was creative, brilliantly plotted, and it blended so many emotions together for me. Sometimes I think the third book of a four book series can be tough to pull off, but Peterson pulled this one off perfectly. I loved every minute of it. In the third book of the series, the conflict is mostly action-less. It's a break from the pandemonium of books one and two. It gives us some time to breathe before before book four comes along. In this book, instead of facing a [...]

    2. I started reading the Wingfeather Saga almost a year ago, and went into it a little hesitantly. If this was going to be a singer/songwriter's dreamy attempt at literature, and nothing more, I wasn't sure I wanted to subject myself to the disappointment. After all, I enjoy Andrew Peterson's music But Andrew Peterson is not merely a singer/songwriter. He is a master storyteller, no matter the medium. And in the Wingfeather Saga, I was pleasantly surprise--blown away--to find a truly precious story [...]

    3. On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness is a whimsical adventure tale, funny, scary, inhabited by Fangs of Dang, crazy sock men, and genuine recipes for maggotloaf. North! Or Be Eaten, Book 2 of The Wingfeather Saga, is the classic journey story: a book of creatures, encounters, fascinating locales, and of course, coming of age.But it’s in The Monster in the Hollows that this series steps up and takes its place as a true fantasy epic — still quirky, still definitely located in the world of A [...]

    4. Finally! A land free of Fangs! Well, almost After a harrowing journey across the Dark Sea of Darkness, the Wingfeathers arrive at last in the Green Hollows, safe and sound. But there is one slight problem. The Hollowsfolk make it very clear that Kalmar, now possessive of whiskers and a tail, is not welcome. As the Throne Warden, Janner is pledged to protect his younger brother. In school, at home, on the playing field. Each day presents new challenges as he and his siblings adjust to life in the [...]

    5. Amazing. The Wingfeather Saga is full of Truth in a way that very few stories are. When I first began the series I wasn't sure if I wanted to read more. After reading book 2 I realized what a treasure I'd found. Now I find myself lost for words to describe the poignancy and the beauty. I can't wait to finish reading book 4, and I look forward to reading these again and again with my children.

    6. I love this book. It has such good literature. I like the end it makes me get geared up for the next book! Comment if you like MINECRAFT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [...]

    7. This is the third book in the Wingfeather saga. It's basically fairytale-like fantasy of displaced royalty in the traditional good vs. evil story line. The enemy, the Fang, are a genetically mutated army created by Gnag the Nameless who deposed the Wingfeathers of Anniera and destroyed the kingdom. The Queen, and her children went into hiding because Gnag wants the children (known as the Jewels) for some nefarious purpose and war is everywhere with changing allegiances of the different non-Fang [...]

    8. Finally!! I actually enjoyed this one. In my very inexpert opinion, Peterson is finally figuring out what tone he wants these books to have.

    9. This book is wonderful, a perfect third book for the series, suspenseful and developing. The characters grew even more. You fell even deeper in love with them. There were many major plot developments especially in the last few chapters they surprise me a lot but I was greatly pleased with them. My favorite parts throughout the book included (view spoiler)[Janner in the library smelling the books. Kalmar protecting the cloven (who turned out to be Esben :0 ) Everything about Leeli with the dogs. [...]

    10. This book was amazing. It took me a little while to get into it. I read North! or Be Eaten a few months ago, so maybe that was the case--that I had been away from the storyworld for awhile. But once I got into the book, there was no coming out. The characters were so real. Leeli, Janner, and Kalmar interacted like REAL siblings. They weren't perfect with each other. They sometimes disagreed, but the trials pulled them together, and I loved the way Janner and Leeli stood up for Kalmar. And Kalmar [...]

    11. Finally, finally, finally the Wingfeather Saga hits its stride here!! There has been enough to keep me interested in the previous two books, but Peterson gets right to the heart of the story in this entry. The distracting footnotes are gone, the trying-too-hard-to-be-funny prose is gone, and most importantly, the main characters are actually given some depth and agency! I learned more about the kids (particularly Janner and Kalmar) in this book than in the first two combined! The tension of thei [...]

    12. The BookI will admit my bias from the beginning. I am a fan. However, bias or not these books stand on their own. Andrew has crafted a wonderful story and in the process shown us ourselves. As Socraties attemped to wake up the Athenians and reveal truth only to garner their hatred, Andrew Peterson has succeeded and won our affection.He knows how to wrap up a chapter so that you have no choice but to read the next, and the next. I don't think this book should be read without first reading the two [...]

    13. A solid entry in the series, ending with a couple of incredible and satisfying twists which I never saw coming. That said, I felt like I had to read through a lot of unrelated stuff to get to the good bits in this installment. After Janner's ordeal in the Fork Factory in the previous book, his adventures at school in the Hollows seem a bit anticlimactic, while I felt we got a lot of foreshadowing of trouble on Kalmar's behalf which never quite paid off.Yes, I'm probably being overly picky here. [...]

    14. These books have progressively gotten more fulfilling for me. The first two felt like I was reading a children's book and enjoying it because I knew my children would enjoy it. This third book I enjoyed on my own behalf. Even though it is still very much a children's book it has adult concepts and a deeper message. I'm really liking where these books have gone and I look forward to reading the 4th

    15. I LOVED this book and did not want it to end! The genre of young adult fantasy is growing on me, thanks to this series. I think the fact that I came to love Peterson's story-telling through his songs first helped me fall in love with his novels even more. As I said with the other books in this series, I can't wait to read them to my boys in a few years!

    16. WARNING! SPOILER ALERT!I am a fan of the Wingfeather Saga! I loved the first book until I read the second, and loved IT until I read the third! And I cant wait to read the Warden and the Wolf King! My friend introduced me and I didn't really want to at first but I'm glad I did read them. This book is great but it gives you mixed emotions about everything. From Kalmar the Wolf, to Janner and his doubting being a Throne Warden, to the possibility that Kalmar is the one hunting all the animals! I k [...]

    17. I wasn't a huge fan of the first two books in the series, but I'm glad I read them because this was a great book. Peterson really hits his stride here, and I'm excited to read the final book next.

    18. This series truly gets better and better! I just gave it 5 stars. Time really is the test of whether a book is truly 5 stars for me. But this was excellent and I believe deserves a place on every family's shelves.

    19. SO MOVING!!!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!I distinctly remember hearing about this series some years ago. On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness? North! Or Be Eaten? What outlandish titles! I had no interest whastsoever.Until I read Gillian Bronte Adam's glowing review.Until I read the first page.Aewiar, the world in which these tales take place, is a wonky world that introduces its perils and bizarre monsters with cheek. But as the series continues, especially at the end of of the second book and on, ev [...]

    20. Sneakery, betrayal, and the deadly secret of Chimney Hill. How could you not be hooked by a simple sentence on the front of the book? Well, the sentence that hooked me, kept me intrigued and on the edge of my seat for the entire book. This is a great novel and I can’t wait to sink my teeth into book four of the series. Scratch that, I think I need to start at the beginning and read the first two other books to really know the entire Wingfeather Saga! This book is definitely a stand alone book [...]

    21. I’m not usually one to pre-order books. Rarely has there been a book that I absolutely HAD to have the first moment it was available. But after reading the first two books in this series, I knew this was going to be one of those books that couldn’t wait. So when the countdown to release day finally ended, I kept a weather eye open for my trusty mail carrier, letter opener in hand.It was totally worth the wait!Rarely have I had so much fun reading a book. The Wingfeather Saga is a tremendousl [...]

    22. Janner and his family settle into life in the Green Hollows, but people don’t really accept them, especially the furry Kalmar, whom they think is a Fang. Janner must step up into his role as a Throne Warden to keep Kalmar from getting into a fight that could destroy their entire family. But there are mysteries, betrayals, and dangers lurking. Janner does all he can to watch over and defend his brother, but what he can’t manage to do is convince himself that Kalmar is innocent.I love Andrew P [...]

    23. Unlike other series, each of these gets better than the one before.The characters develop nicely, giving lots of depth, while the action doesn't slow down much, either. Lots of wrestling and sneakery for boy readers!Peterson deals with themes old and new.Brotherly loveThe relationship between Janner and Kalmar is shown to be the centerpiece of the trilogy. In book 2 we saw relational breakdown and hostility. Here they are able to love each other as brothers do, though they haven't yet resolved e [...]

    24. 4/14: read aloud with Martin. We both agreed, best in the series. Cannot wait for the conclusion to be released. Truly one of my favorite series now. 12/13: Each book in this series just keeps getting better. A lot of tension in the middle of this one, but I felt like I could see where things were going. Then WHAM! twist, and just when I was recovered BAM another twist. What a whirlwind of an ending. I'm not usually emotional in books but this one I was almost choked up, which is saying somethin [...]

    25. Oh, how I have missed these beloved characters! Andrew Peterson is such a gifted storyteller. And I confess, I choked up at the end of this book, full of truth, goodness, beauty, valor, and humor. I don't care what age you are, I highly recommend this series to you. I read the first two books and we own them, but I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this audio book read by Andrew Peterson. Truly delightful. But I definitely need to purchase this book when we're able, to dwell on our bookshelves alo [...]

    26. Exponential. That's the one word to describe this book. It starts slow, Every chapter seemingly just inching along. However, pretty soon you see a little more progress. just a little. And every chapter seems to double the speed of the preceding oneuntil the last part of the book your children are rioting for stopping at the end of every chapter. I finally just gave in and kept reading with the kids in rapt attention. My wordwhat a great book! Starting tomorrow with the final book of the series. [...]

    27. Personal notes: they are sailing to the green hollows. When they are almost there they see anneria still smoking from burning. There are ships that come upon theirs so Podo gives the wheel to janner. The other ships start to attack. Nia has Leeli play a hollish tune and the other ships stop firing when they hear it. They get to Ban Rona and go through the Watercraw. Rudric is the keeper. When Nia introduces Kalmar the people go crazy and begin to carry him away. They end up taking Kalmar to jail [...]
