“You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.” ~ Madeleine L’Engle
Andrew Peterson is disgustingly talented. Not only is he a great songwriter and musician, fun storyteller, Proprietor of the Rabbit Room, and all around neat guy… turns out he’s got a bit of novelist in him. Epic kids fantasy novelist to be exact. Enter On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness, his first novel which blends shades of Narnia and Lord of the Rings with a quirky sense of humor and imaginative creatures. (Oh yeah, and he drew some maps and illustrations too. So add drawing skills to the talent list. What’d I tell you?)
I’m a fan. But alas, just as the story got exciting, the characters became real, and the plot had me flipping pages… it ended. Like that. Sadness.
Then I heard there was a second installment to The Wingfeather Saga on the way, and all was right in the world. :)
So, I consider it an honor to partipate in the official blog tour for North! Or be Eaten: Book Two of The Wingfeather Saga. It’s been going on all this week with blogger reviews, and tomorrow this blog will be on all things Wingfeather! Drop by tomorrow evening for a review of North! and… my first ever giveaway! I have copies of both books and want to give them to someone and share the joy. :)
So… yes. Please come back tomorrow, won’t you? Radio people call this a teaser.
And now… off to the Ice Praires, then sleep.
Oh yes, uh… I’m still reading. *slacker*
