North! Or Be Eaten by Andrew Peterson--Giveaway!



This book is the second in a series. I got it for my daughter, and she loved it so much she forced me to get the first book in the series, On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness for her birthday.

That's high praise, folks! My daughter doesn't get that excited about very many books.
Here's the summary of North! Or Be Eaten.
Readers thrilled to the phantasmagorical adventures in On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness, Book One of the Wingfeather Saga. Now in Book Two, Janner, Tink, and Leeli Igiby, mom Nia, ex-pirate grandfather Podo, Peet the Sock Man, and trusty dog Nugget flee north to rebel headquarters.

Their escape brings readers to the very brink of Fingap Falls, over the Stony Mountains, and across the Ice Prairies, while villains galore try to stop the Igibys permanently. Fearsome toothy cows and horned hounds return, along with new dangers: a mad man running a fork factory, a den of rockroaches, and majestic talking sea dragons.

Andrew Peterson’s lovable characters create what FantasyBookCritic.com says made Book One “one of the best fantasy novels in a very long time,” and Book Two contains even more thrills, exploring “themes universal in nature, ranging from the classic good versus evil, to the importance of family, and burdens of responsibility.”

If you'd like to win this book, please leave a comment and I'll put you in the drawing.

I've been so sad now that the Harry Potter series is complete. I'd love to read some new, good fantasy! As an educator, I'm always on the look out for engaging books for young people.

So glad to hear about this book after the gloomy and disappointing experience I just had of reading The Magicians by Lev Grossman. I need a good fantasy story to cheer me up after that one!

Hi Melanie
I'd love this book but I'd prefer someone got it who has a YA reader in their family. It sounds wonderful.

My first thought was, isn't he a songwriter? well, duh, I guess he can be an author too and is having great success with both.

Thanks Melanie for all you do to keep Christian readers apprised of all the good stuff out there.
