    On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness

    'On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness' by Andrew Peterson is a wonderfully crafted tale! The characters are so well written that I connected to them immediately. The story moves at such a fast pace, that I was able to this book in one sitting. The 'Jewels of Anniera' are mentioned all throughout the book and I kept wondering "What do they look like?" and "Where are they?". When I reached the end of the book, I finally found out where they were and why they were so important.

    There were a couple of times that the story was a bit slow. It is for this reason that I didn't give it five stars.

    Though Fantasy isn't a genre that I usually read, I found this book to be very enjoyable and will definitely be reading the next book 'North, or be Eaten'. I think that this is a book that all ages can enjoy.

    I Also Recommend:

    A wonderfully witty new voice in teen fantasy

    The Igby children, Janner, Tink, and Leeli, manage to anger a vicious Fang and are thrown into jail. Janner is certain that they will be taken away in the Black Carriage, forever slaves of Gnag the Nameless. But before the carriage arrives, their mother bails them out with a handful of precious jewels.

    Janner is curious where the jewels came from, and he's not the only one. The Fangs come after them again, this time seeking the precious Jewels of Anniera they are certain the Igbys are hiding. The chase takes the Igby family far into Glipwood Forest where toothy cows and horned hounds abound.

    This book was a big-and pleasant-surprise. Andrew Peterson has a wonderfully witty voice. He reminds me of an easier-to-understand Douglas Adams with his satirical style of writing. The book is interesting from the start, though it takes a while to come to the plot. The ending was full of great stuff that made me really excited to read the next book in the series. I really enjoyed this one a lot.
