Book Synopsis

Once, in a cottage above the cliffs on the Dark Sea of Darkness, there lived three children and their trusty dog Nugget.

Janner Igiby, his brother Tink, their crippled sister Leeli are gifted children as all children are, loved well by a noble mother and ex-pirate grandfather. But they will need all their gifts and all that love to survive the evil pursuit of the venomous Fangs of Dang who have crossed the dark sea to rule the land with malice and pursue the Igibys who hold the secret to the lost legend and jewels of good King Wingfeather of the Shining Isle of Anniera.

Andrew Peterson spins a quirky and riveting tale of the Igibys’ extraordinary journey from Glipwood’s Dragon Day Festival and a secret hidden in the Books and Crannies Bookstore, past the terrifying Black Carriage, clutches of the horned hounds and loathsome toothy cows surrounding AnkleJelly Manor, through the Glipwood Forest and mysterious treehouse of Peet the Sock Man (known for a little softshoe and wearing tattered socks on his hands and arms), to the very edge of the Ice Prairies.

Full of characters rich in heart, smarts, and courage, On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness presents a world of wonder and a tale children of all ages will cherish, families can read aloud, and readers’ groups are sure to discuss for its layers of meaning about life’s true treasure and tangle of the beautiful and horrible, temporal and eternal, and good and bad.

    Soooo my friend has got me hooked on this series, and I will never stop reading these books. I have read three and am half way through the fourth ina period of four months since receiving this first one. May have a deceiving title, but this book is heart warming, hooking, Christian, and beautiful, there is never any references of God, but the entire world these kids live in does have a “Maker” so to speak who created the entire planet with many god-like forms that are put down as fake. Very mysterious and twisting. So many twists. I usually see them coming but never have once while reading any of these books. SOO GOOD.
  • Great series! The stories are true!

    This first book in the series lays the foundation for a richer and deeper story by the end of book four. While it is evident this is Peterson's first book, his gift as a storyteller shines. This book and series are best read out loud. I hope you enjoy them as much as my family has!
