First they found themselves On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness. Now they must make their way North! Or Be Eaten . . .

Janner, Tink, and Leeli Igiby thought they were normal children with normal lives and a normal past. But now they know they're really the Lost Jewels of Anniera, heirs to a legendary kingdom across the sea, and suddenly everyone wants to kill them.

In order to survive, the Igibys must flee to the safety of the Ice Prairies, where the lizardlike Fangs of Dang cannot follow. First, however, they have to escape the monsters of Glipwood Forest, the thieving Stranders of the East Ben, and the dreaded Fork Factory.

But even more dangerous are the jealousies and bitterness that threaten to tear them apart. Janner and his siblings must learn the hard way that the love of a family is more important than anything else.

Full of characters rich in heart, smarts, and courage, North! Or Be Eaten is a tale children of all ages will cherish, families can read aloud, and readers' groups are sure to enjoy discussing for its many layers of meaning.

This story starts out where the first book left off: in Peet the Sock Man's tree house. Janner, Tink, Leeli, Podo, and Nia are about to set off for the Ice Prairies, but they don't get going soon enough and end up on the run from the Fangs of Dang. It's a long, long journey to the Ice Prairies, and the Igby children are waylaid by some pretty horrifying setbacks. Will all in their party survive the trip? Will they get caught before they make it? Oh, I likes me this book a way bunch! It makes me wanna talk like Podo, which I probably don't do as well as the old coot, but still I give it me best shot. I liked this one better than the first, which is such a great thing. The characters were even better this time. I love the parallels with Janner and Peet. Two Throne Wardens struggling to do what they must even when it is nearly impossible. Andrew Peterson's style is funny and clever while telling a dangerous tale of woe. That's what makes his writing so unique. He's a wonderful writer and storyteller. I highly recommend this series. I cannot wait for book three. And I love the illustrations in the book. The Snickbuzzard with the belly button, especially.

FINALLY! More Toothy Cows, Igiby children, Peet the Sock Man, nasty Fangs and so much more. The sequel to "On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness" is finally here and it has been worth waiting for. I will say that like in the first book, it takes a few chapters to get into the amazingly unique world Andrew Peterson has created. To understand the characters, the land, the animals and the culture of the world and also to get into the wonderfully quirky writing style Andrew has - it is sheer genius, but very original. Once in the groove of the book, you can not put it down. I love this series.

A great follow up to On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness! The story picks up right where the first book stopped. Peterson's writing is still fun and playful, but the story is a bit darker and more serious. Janner, Tink & Leeli learn more about who they really are and why Gnag and the Fangs are out to get them. The story is full of excitement, mystery, strange people and creatures, and surprises. Don't get enslaved in the Fork! Factory! Grab you book and sword. Watch out for toothy cows. Have fun!

In 'North! Or Be Eaten' the Igiby/Wingfeather family faces a more perilous and treacherous journey then any of them ever imagined. There is of course the danger of the Fangs and the creatures of the forest, but now they have to deal with Stranders, Trolls, Dragons, a bunch of other terrifying monsters, and people who are more than willing to turn on them for money. Janner and Tink have to deal with jealousies towards each other. They both also have many other issues that they have to deal with. Tink's fear of the responsiblity that comes with being the High King of Anniera. Janner,Throne Warden of Anniera, is tired of always looking out for Tink. Because of this, some things are said that hurt someone's feelings, and some terrible things happen. Here is what happened...I not going to say, as it will spoil the story for you, but trust me it is huge! I greatly enjoyed reading 'North! Or Be Eaten' and have already started on the next book 'The Monster in the Hollows'. These books may not be for everyone, but for those who love to read action/adventure/fantasy novels these books will be right up your alley. I think that these also would be great books to read to the whole family, as I believe that young children would love this story!

Welcome to the land where huge sea serpent arise from the depths to sing, horrible wolf-like creatures murder and terrorize the hopeless citizens, toothy cows roam the forests and where the Igiby family is right smack-dab in the middle of it, desperately trying to make their way north, without being eaten. Forget the last book's quirkiness; this one's gritty, dark and emotional. Peterson's vivid writing portrays both violent betrayal and heart-warming reunions at equally graphic levels. So basically, if you're looking for something a whole lot like the first Wingfeather book On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness, this isn't it. It's more like a slower paced version of Ted Dekker's Lost Books. And that's a good thing. Very good. www(dot)hornspoonreviews(dot)webs(dot)com
