On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness

A couple of weeks ago I discovered that Andrew Peterson's "children's" book was available on iTunes for $3.95. So I downloaded it and haved listened to about a third of it. The books is wonderfully titled: On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness: Adventure, Peril, Lost Jewels, and the Fearsome Toothy Cows of Skree. Knowing of Peterson's appreciation of the legendary otherworldly creations of Lewis and Tolkien, it is easy to see how they inspired him. Peterson has indeed brought forth a new world, complete with enchanting humans and many other strange creatures. But he is no copycat. This is a fresh and unique story, with wonderfully developed characters and a writing style all his own. I look forward to enjoying the whole Wingfeather Saga! And don't forget that Andrew Peterson's primary contribution to bringing light and hope to this life is his music! He is one of my top three all time favorite artists.
