North or Be Eaten by Andrew Peterson

This is a repost of the entry I wrote in August concerning this book. I still have not yet read the first book in this series but plan on it soon!

This week the Christian Science Fiction and Fantasy is featuring the second book in the Wingfeather Saga, North! Or Be Eaten by Andrew Peterson.

This is my first read by Andrew Peterson. It will not be my last however! This is the second book in a series and I was a bit concerned that I might be a little behind. However, the author does such a great job with this book that I don't feel like I've missed anything. (I may have and just not known it though!)

This is quite the adventure with all sorts of interesting characters. The goal of the Igiby children is to make it Aerwair. Alive. Safely. Can they do it? Of course they can...but not without the help of a few friends (and enemies) along the way.

This is a great book for any one of any age. It is a young adult book but as a parent, I thoroughly enjoyed it. As my children (ages 5 and 3) get older, I will pass it down to them to read and read it to them myself. I loved the vivid descriptions of the scenery and creatures, not to mention just the story itself.

Overall, I give this read 4 out of 5 stars!!

  1. Yes, I liked the general appeal of this book too. And I think you hit the rating's nail on the head! I might have given it 4 1/2 stars, but then, I'm a softie! ;-)
