Once, in a cottage above the cliffs on the Dark Sea of Darkness, there lived three children and their trusty dog Nugget. Janner Igiby, his brother Tink, and their crippled sister Leeli are gifted children, loved well by a noble mother and an ex-pirate grandfather. But they will need all their gifts and all that love to survive the evil pursuit of the venomous Fangs of Dang who have crossed the dark sea to rule the land with malice and to pursue the Igibys who hold the secret to the lost jewels of good King Wingfeather of the Shining Isle of Anniera.

Andrew Peterson spins a quirky and riveting tale of the Igibys’ extraordinary journey from Glipwood’s Dragon Day Festival and a secret hidden in the Books and Crannies bookstore, through Glipwood Forest and the mysterious tree house of Peet the Sock Man (known for a little soft-shoe and wearing tattered socks on his hands and arms), to the very edge of the ice prairies.

Full of characters rich in heart, smarts, and courage, On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness presents a world of wonder and a tale children of all ages will cherish. Readers’ groups are sure to discuss its layers of meaning about life’s true treasure and the tangle of the beautiful and horrible, temporal and eternal, and good and bad.

    " It took me a bit to get into the quirky language and odd reptilian and forest creatures. This series just isn't quite by bag of tea, but I like the plot and I think I'll probably read the final book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Lexie | 2/16/2014

    " Awesome book! Action packed and fun. And full of twists and turns in the plot! Really great! :D "

    " As the first book in the series, there was a lot of back-story. Actually, it seemed almost the whole book was the introduction of the fantasy world of Aerwiar and the strange creatures living alongside humans (not so peacefully). [Note: this is a series of young adult books in the same vein as Narnia]. I'm glad I pushed through, because the the charge given to one of the children at the end gives me hope for a great story in the following books. "

    " I know Andrew Peterson (@andrewpeterson) more from his music, so was excited to discover he's been writing a fantastic series of books that are a great read for families. This is a fun book with some very creative and fun twists on the typical fantasy-themed stories. It has a compelling storyline, without ever taking itself too seriously (like some fantasy books I've encountered this year). Looking forward to reading the sequel. "
