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.
