Jeffrey Overstreet, film critic and author of the wonderful fantasy series The Auralia Thread, writes:
When my novel Auralia’s Colors was first published, it was promoted by the publisher, WaterBook Press, alongside the first novel of another fantasy author like myself: Andrew Peterson.
That book was titled On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness. And so began The Wingfeather Saga: a series of Peterson’s fantastical novels that weave a tapestry made of threads of inspiration drawn from sources as wildly different at The Chronicles of Narnia and Monty Python’s Flying Circus. They’ve enchanted countless readers with their humor and their heart. If you haven’t discovered them yet, you have many hours of fun ahead of you.
Thanks so much for the boost, Jeffrey! We appreciate it. Readers, you can get acquainted with Mr. Overstreet and read the rest of this article at his blog, LookingCloser.org, where he writes passionately and articulately about music, movies, and other matters close to his heart.
This week, Madame Sidler will be reading chapters 18-22 of On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness. Join us on Friday for an excerpt and discussion! Meanwhile, we’ve got a bunch of fun conversations happening in the forum—homesickness, Leeli’s compassion, the languages we’re learning and stories we’re writing, whether a toothy cow could best six Grey Fangs—and we’d love to have you join us.
