Well worth the price. I wish all four books in the series were available as a set! That would be so handy. Five stars for the story, however! Read these books and give them as gifts! Read them as a family! My granddaughter and I read this book together and had many great conversations. A final shout out to the first two books on audible...they are wonderful to listen to...and wish the last two books were audible-available with the same performers! It was a fantastic job.
After the events of The Monster In The Hollows, Janner, Kalmar, and Leeli along with their mother Nia and grandfather Podo (the ex-pirate with a wooden leg) are ready to lead the Green Hollows in battle against the fearsome Fangs of Dang (both the Green and Gray varieteis).
The plan was sound, except that the Fangs invaded first.
Now Janner's family has been separated. Leeli does battle as the Song Maiden in Ban Rona. Janner is lost in the wilderness. And Kalmar rushes toward Throg, the headquarters of the nameless evil called Gnag the Nameless.
To say anymore would be courting serious spoilers, as well as the fury of Mr. Reteep, the Chief Librarian of Ban Rona. He might quote troll poetry at me if I continue.
As for my review:
Andrew Peterson is a songwriter and musician by trade. All through the series, this has been evident in the way he tells stories with lyrical prose and a dreamer's heart.
I've read the other three books to my boys out loud. We've read them since they were 8 and 6. Now they're 14 and 12 and they can't wait until we can finish the story. (I read it early). I know they'll be delighted. They'll be stunned. They've always lived for each chapter's cliffhanger, dying when I wouldn't read them anymore for the night. This is different.
The series is over.
The bittersweet conclusion continues with a fast pace and continues to deepen characters we know and love from the first three books. One constant trait for all of the heroic characters in the book is nobility. Even though all of the heroes show their flaws, they all have a central nobility which speaks about them having a deeper purpose in the midst of their failings.
The action is swifter in this book, and some of the details of world-building that were so delightful in the first books are necessarily sacrificed to move the story along to the conclusion. There are still touches (footnotes from fictional works in the story world), but the book has a specific target now, and the scene has been set anyway.
I've read numerous fantasy and YA books. I enjoy most of what I read. The Wingfeather Saga holds a special place in my heart. It has enlivened the imagination of my boys. It has a character and artistic quality that speaks of its strong core and nature.
I've told the story before of how my boys wrote to Mr. Peterson for a school assignment, and they were so thrilled when they both received hand-written responses from him. That's the type of man that Andrew is, and that wrote these books.
He did a Kickstarter campaign to fund the publishing of the final book. His modest goal was topped three times over as fans poured in money to see the book done right.
I share those details to give an understanding of the character of Andrew Peterson and the way he's touched fans.
So this is a series that I give my highest recommendation. It can inspire boys and girls to be heroic and noble. It speaks of family, love, and doing the right thing even when it hurts. There's adventure, intrigue, and cliffhangers galore.
And there are toothy cows.
What more can I say? If you haven't purchased the books yet, do yourself a favor
Janner Igiby Wingfeather and Artham P. Winchester are my most favorite characters.
(P.S. My Hot Ed/health teacher has the same name as you.)
I love these books.
