Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 2/19/2014

    " 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 Lexie | 2/16/2014

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 2/15/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 2/2/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey Scholl | 1/29/2014

    " This is a highly entertaining read. Peterson has the feel of Terry Pratchett, but with fewer adjectives and more hope. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christopher | 1/14/2014

    " My son and I have read through the Lord of the Rings and the Chronicles of Narnia recently. Andrew Peterson has created a world and characters that capture the imagination like C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel Cooksey | 12/8/2013

    " Excellent YA yarn full of imagination and invention. I only wish the rest of the book had been as funny as the first three pages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 12/2/2013

    " Took my a while to get into it, but once I did I was hooked. I did guess the ending, but I enjoyed it still. Andrew is a good storyteller in concert and on the written page, though I think his humor works best in person. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rose | 11/25/2013

    " It was really good. I loved all the characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 10/27/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 10/19/2013

    " I read this out loud to Chris. It was a fun book and I'll definitely look forward to reading the next book in the trilogy. Not a page-turner like Twilight, but it has a way of keeping you on the edge of your seat with the mysteries and humor. Be sure to read the footnotes! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherry | 10/18/2013

    " Loved this first attempt at fantasy writing. A little inconsistent in style in places and a few more battles than necessary to the plot, but the story has drawn me in. Book 2 up next! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 10/12/2013

    " Was An AMAZINGLY addictive! I loved the dark humor of this enchanting book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carma | 7/28/2013

    " Love this story. Andrew Peterson is an amazing storyteller (in print and in concert)! If you enjoy Harry potter or the Narnia books you'll enjoy this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 6/22/2013

    " I think this was one of the first times I have ever started reading a series that isn't finished yet. It's interesting...not exactly my style, though I probably will read the rest of the series just to see what happens. Funny and gross and scary by turns... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anthony Alvarado | 10/17/2012

    " Super fun book that I'm excited to read to my kids. Courage, sacrifice, legacy, and a sense of a greater identity make this a great story. I'm itching now to get to the next 2 books in the saga... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sonia | 10/11/2012

    " Even though this book is geared for people younger than me I enjoyed it....it was kinda funny, and the author is pretty good at writing.:) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam Colter | 12/25/2011

    " Read this book to my boys, 7 and 4 years old. Such a great story, endearing and true characters. lots of adventure and mystery. maybe a little much of the blood and death part of adventure tales. but very well written by an obvious poetic talent. love Andrew Peterson! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Magma | 6/12/2011

    " very good and funny fantasy book. there were quite a few twists I didn't see coming. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tami | 5/25/2011

    " Enjoyed his appendix and footnotes! Interesting fantasy! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 4/18/2011

    " Peterson's sequel is a fun and compelling read. Great series to enjoy as a family; scary at times, but nothing that most kids can't handle. There is the scary element that kids are used as slave labor and for some other horrific means (don't want to spoil a plot development). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Seth | 3/20/2011

    " Peterson?s attempt at writing children?s fiction is a total blast to read. It?s witty, descriptive, well-plotted (I figured out about 1/2 of the foreshadowing before all was revealed), and creative while using tried-and-true storytelling technique. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 2/11/2011

    " Excellent book. I cannot wait until I get my hands on the next one.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hunter | 10/11/2010

    " Great follow up the first book in the series. I am eagerly anticipating the resto fthe series. The themes of knowing who you are and what you have been destined to be was a great parallel and encouragement to one's walk with Christ. READ IT! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Faydra | 8/9/2010

    " Like this one much better than the first in the series, couldn't put it down and ready for the next - but I can't believe the next one isn't even finished being written!

    Much more magical, much darker in places, and the action gets started right away. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cmurrell | 6/11/2010

    " Very excited to read the next book in The Wingfeather Saga! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 K.L. | 5/11/2010

    " Love this series. I listened to the first one and the audio version is stellar - maybe even better than reading it. It's a weird thing to listen to the first one and try and read the second one. It's like getting to know the characters all over again for some reason. But I like it nonetheless! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joseph | 5/8/2010

    " A lot darker than the first book but I really loved this book. I couldn't put it down once about halfway through. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meadow | 4/29/2010

    " Strange, and at times, a litle freaky. This book was a mixture of fantasy, quirky, and suspence It was a cliff hanger ending. But very well written. The illustrations in the book were very helpful in picturing the character/monsters. Would definitally recomend it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amber | 2/23/2010

    " Even better than the first. AP's writing is wittier and even more developed than Book 1. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremiah | 2/18/2010

    " finished the book early this morning and am eagerly anticipating the next installment of the series. "
