I'd give six stars for this book if it were possible. We couldn't turn the pages quickly enough. Indeed, The Way of the Wilderking, may, perhaps, be Jonathon Rogers' best yet. Our family has loved all three of the books -- "The Bark of the Bog Owl," "Secret of the Swamp King," and now "The Way of the Wilderking." The creativity within the storytelling, the ongoing antics and sayings of Dobro, the poignant scene of redemption, the element of revealed mystery/history, the battle scenes, and the hysterically funny chapter of when Dobro goes to his first theater kept a constant call for "Read more!" We can't recommend this trilogy highly enough. For the past couple of years, "The Bark of the Bog Owl" has been the birthday gift we've given to our kids' friends, and now we're continuing each subsequent year by adding the sequels. We just wish there would be a fourth so we can see how Aidan does as king. But if you're contemplating buying "The Way of the Wilderking"...buy it!

Jonathan Rogers has created a literary world that I don't particularly want to visit - it's pretty much swamp and full of creepy crawlies, snakes and gators.

But I loved reading about his world, and I would kind of like to swing through the trees - Feechie style.

The series also sparked the desire to get my own Feechie. Though I don't know that we'd let it live in the house, it would be great to hang out with.

I recommend this series to adults as well as older children (eightish and up) of both genders.

Omniscient point of view makes sure we aren't in the dark regarding any of the characters. This engaging tale of war and integrity, and loyalty and brotherhood is inspired by the early life of King David.

Mr. Rogers (the author - not of the neighborhood fame) must believe that children are intelligent and creative and clever because he has written a series peppered with subtle humor that challenges vocabulary skills, and the world's view of how we are supposed to live.

Lovers of Narnia and the Princess Bride should eat this up like rotten lizard eggs.

Format: Hardcover
The Way of the Wilderking begins when a reluctant 18-year-old Aidan is called to be the legendary Wilderking. Fearing for his father, brothers, and all innocent people under the rule of the jealous king Darrow, Aidan is forced to fight and lead an army of miscreants and Feechiefolk. To everyone's astonishment, Aidan, who has not denied loyalty to King Darrow and Prince Keren, instead leads his army against the threat of Pyrthens.

By Jonathan Rogers, The Way of the Wilderking is the third book in the Wilderking Trilogy. To fully understand the many aspects of this story, read the first book, The Bark of the Bog Owl, and the second, The Secret of the Swamp King. This hardbound book has 25 chapters and 225 pages. The story is fun and humorous, but also quite adventurous.

The Way of the Wilderking is great for 10- to 14-year-olds who don't mind convenient plot twists. Reading this book will inspire you to become the person God created you to be--even if you feel unqualified. - Estee Wells, Christian Book [..]

Every night I read to my three oldest children and wife and everyone looks forward to the occasion. Reading the Wilderking series was a fun and light hearted time. While we have read more exciting books this was one of the more enjoyable ones due to Dobro and his people. The author did a good job adding some twists to the story as well since it is modeled after the life of King David. All in all a fun read and one where we will use the word "feechie" in our family for years to come.

Format: Hardcover
When fear of God has left the land,
To be replaced by fear of man;
When Corenwalders free and true
Enslave themselves and others too,
When mercy and justice disappear,
When life is cheap and gold is dear,
When freedom's flame has burned to ember
And Corenwalders can't remember
What are truths and what are lies,
Then will the Wilderking arise.
~from The Wilderking Chant

Corenwald is in trouble. Six years have passed since Aidan first went to Tambluff in service of King Darrow. Those six years have not been kind to the king. He's grown increasingly paranoid and he's made bad moves. Prince Steren has served his father well, soothing and advising him, but now even he is losing influence and the country appears to be in real danger because of the king's foolish behavior.

And yet, The Way of the Wilderking, the final book in the Wilderking Trilogy, is not a dark and depressing book. In fact, it opens with a hilarious scene and the comedy, much like the Energizer Bunny, keeps going and going and going. I thought these books couldn't get any funnier. After all, how many funny feechie feasts, feechie sings, and feechie contests can one swamp produce?

Ha! I forgot the old saying, "You can take the feechie out of the swamp but you can't take the swamp out of the feechie." Fortunately for feechie fans everywhere, Dr. Rogers thought to take the feechie out of the swamp. What do you get when mix Dobro Turtlebane with a civilizer city? One disaster following another, in finest feechie fashion.

Rogers, as anyone would expect, does a fine job with the writing in this book. The prose is great, the scenes are well painted, and the descriptions are clear.
