Phill Lytle at Rambling Ever On confesses that it took him awhile to start, and then to continue, reading the Wingfeather Saga. In this short but heartfelt review, however, he lets us know that his reluctance has met a decisive end.
Yes, the books can be silly and quirky, but they are also epic and emotionally rich. It will come as no surprise to anyone who has read my stuff for REO, but I cried a lot reading this series. I cried because while the setting and the world is fantastical and whimsical, the characters are living, breathing people. They are spiritual and emotional creatures and their struggles and triumphs matter. They leave a mark.
… [T]hese books work because they are more than just good stories.
Phill, I cried through the Igibys’ story, too. Thanks for reading and loving these books.
