North or Be Eaten by Andrew Peterson with a Double Giveaway!

North or be eaten

I found myself entangled in the pages of a Narnia like world… captured by the adventure that can only come from a well written read…  ~ Sheila

This giveaway is now closed

Janner, Tink, and Leeli Igiby thought they were normal children with normal lives and a normal past. But now they know they’re really the Lost Jewels of Anniera, heirs to a legendary kingdom across the sea, and suddenly everyone wants to kill them.

Their escape brings readers to the very brink of Fingap Falls, over the Stony Mountains, and across the Ice Prairies, while villains galore try to stop the Igibys permanently. Fearsome toothy cows and horned hounds return, along with new dangers: a mad man running a fork factory, a den of rockroaches, and majestic talking sea dragons.

Andrew Peterson’s lovable characters create what FantasyBookCritic.com says made Book One “one of the best fantasy novels in a very long time,” and Book Two contains even more thrills, exploring “themes universal in nature, ranging from the classic good versus evil, to the importance of family, and burdens of responsibility.”

My Thoughts:  It took me  a ways into the book to finally capture the flow of this read.  I wonder if part of that is due to the fact that I had not read book one – On The Edge Of The Dark Of Darkness.  I did not even know this was a sequal until after I had begun reading….

Once the book grabbed hold of me – I flew through the pages picking up elements that I loved about Narnia.  This book is well written with elements that could keep me guessing.  I have to admit this was not as easy a read as I found the Narnia books to be.  I struggled in points keeping track of all the action and what and the where…  I think young 8 – 13 year olds may enjoy this very much…. I get the impression it would really be their thing.

On this particular book I goofed and wound up on two different blog tours with it.  Due to this I have two books to giveaway.  (Remember Christmas is coming – this would make a wonderful gift!)

  1. My 15-year old son LOVES fantasy (I just posted his list of Top Ten Fantasy Series at my blog this week) – this one sounds right up his alley. We’re all huge fans of Narnia. I’ll add this to his Christmas list!

    Thanks for the review –

  2. What would I do with a copy of this book???

    Well, I would read it! I think if I won this book I would have to go purchase the first one first. Read the first one then dive into this one. It sounds as that may be a good thing to do (read the first). This way I am hopefully not lost at the beginning.

    This does sound really good.

    I would first read this book and then pass it on to my nephew who would really enjoy it, too. His family – my brother – usually donates the books that they have read to the school library where they attend school.

    Thank you,

    I would read this myself first, and then pass it to a friend, asking her to pass it on when she is done. Hopefully it would get to a lot of people!
