I am so excited to do today's review. The Wingfeather Saga by Andrew Peterson has been one of our favorite series to read. It ranks right up there with The Chronicles of Narnia series by C.S. Lewis. Each book is wonderfully written and leaves much room for the imagination, which I appreciate! There are four books in the series:
On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness
North! or Be Eaten
The Monster in the Hollows
The Warden and the Wolf King
We started this series over a year ago and took our time, with my husband reading a chapter on most nights. Sometimes we had to read two chapters because it was so intense and we couldn't wait to find out what happened next. And at one point we had to take a break while we waited for the fourth book to be released.
The themes in this series are not light and easy going. There are many humorous moments and times when you want to jump up and cheer the Wingfeather family on. But there are also heartbreaking moments that just might make you cry. The Wingfeather family shows what it looks like to have great courage and noble character in the face of much trial and tribulation. In the end, Good overcomes evil. I enjoyed every minute of it!
I would highly recommend this series, not just for older kids and and as a family read-aloud, but for any adult that needs to read a fantastic story of hope.
