Christian Science Fiction And Fantasy Blog Tour — The Monster In The Hollows

19 Sep

This month’s book pick for the Christian Science Fiction and Fantasy Blog Tour is Andrew Peterson’s The Monster In The Hollows (book 3 in The Wingfeather Saga), a young adult fantasy adventure.  Here is some information about the book and its author.  Tomorrow I will highlight books 1 and 2 in the series and on Wednesday I will post my review.  (Last week was crazy, so I am still reading the book!)

Janner Wingfeather’s father was the High King of Anniera. But his father is gone. The kingdom has fallen. The royal family is on the run, and the Fang armies of Gnag the Nameless are close behind.

Janner and his family hope to find refuge in the last safe place in the world: the Green Hollows—a land of warriors feared even by Fangs of Dang. But there’s a big problem. Janner’s little brother-heir to the throne of Anniera-has grown a tail. And gray fur. Not to mention two pointed ears and long, dangerous fangs. To the suspicious folk of the Green Hollows he looks like a monster.

But Janner knows better. His brother isn’t as scary as he looks. He’s perfectly harmless.

Or is he?

Join the Wingfeathers on an adventure filled with mystery, betrayal, and sneakery in a land of tasty fruits. There’s a monster on the loose and the truth lurks in the shadows.

From The Author’s Website:

Andrew Peterson — Hey, folks. If you’re just discovering me or any of my work, it can be a little confusing because there are several facets to it. If you don’t have time to read the whole bio below, here’s the rundown:

• I write songs.  I also record them to these cool things called CDs and put on concerts around the country. (And beyond! To my great delight, I get to play in Europe every year or so.)

• I write books.  Right now I’m writing four-part fantasy series for young readers called the Wingfeather Saga. I just published the third book, The Monster in the Hollows. I also illustrated some of the pictures (but not the coolest ones). The last book in the series should be published by next Christmas.

• I’m the proprietor of the Rabbit Room, a community of songwriters, authors, and artists interested in storytelling, faith, and fellowship.

• I’m a proud member of the Square Peg Alliance, a happy band of singer/songwriters who write together, tour together, and eat together.

• I’ve been married for fifteen years to Jamie, and we have three sweet children: Aedan (12), Asher (11), and Skye (8). We live in a magical place we call the Warren, just south of Nashville.

The common thread in all this is my love for Christ and his Kingdom, my belief in the power of story and art, and my need for family and community. If I had to boil it all down, I’d say this: I want to use my gifts to tell the truth, and to tell it as beautifully as I can.
