Andrew Peterson has created a mythical world known as Aerwiar. The great evil, Gnag the Nameless, created war on everybody. But he particularly hated High King Wingfeather. The evil attacked the kingdom and executed all the royalty. The invaders, the Fangs of Dang, resembled humans but had tails.
The people of Skree knew to be inside their homes before midnight. They feared the sound of the hooves that pulled the rattling Black Carriage. Once a citizen entered the carriage, they were never heard from again. This is the story of the three exceptional Igiby children that lived in a cottage by the Dark Sea of Darkness: Janner, Tink, little Leeli and their dog Nugget. The children were the key to the jewels belonging to the good king Wingfeather.
On The Edge Of The Dark Sea Of Darkness by Andrew Peterson is a spellbinding story of adventure, danger and suspense. Like a spider spins a web and captures its prey so Peterson spins a tale that holds the reader imprisoned to the very last word. Peterson paints a background for his imaginary land. Then he creates inhabitants that come alive before the reader’s eyes. I could see the dragons as they broke the surface of the ocean. Fans of fantasy will not want to miss this one.
