Name: On The Edge of The Dark Sea of Darkness
Author: Andrew Peterson
Genre: Children Fiction, Fantasy, Sci-fi
Age: 6
Review:
Beautiful and enchanting cover.
This is the story of three siblings; Janner Igiby, Tink and their crippled sister Leeli. These three are gifted children and are loved by their noble mother and grandfather, who was once a pirate.
Fangs of Dang has crossed the Dark Sea to rule the land with his evil and malicious intent. He pursue the Igibys who hold the secret to the lost legend and jewels of good King Wingfeather of the Shining Isle of Anniera.
Now, the three children has to use their gifts to survive against the venomous Fangs of Dangs, who will stop at nothing to fulfill his evil pursuit.
A quirky, thrilling and enchanting story which will keep you engaged throughout the book. Peterson is a master storyteller with his quirky writing style and a good sense of humour.
He presents a tale for children of all ages, along with the beautiful illustrations throughout the pages which will keep the reader's undivided attention. ( )

On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness is about three siblings living outside of a small town that is, you guessed it, on the edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness. The town, and indeed the whole country, are ruled over by ruthless lizard people, the Fangs of Dang, who came from across the sea nine years ago. The story begins when Janner and his siblings get on the wrong side of a Fang. I expected things to take off from there but they really didn’t. In fact every couple chapters something would happen and I would expect the plot to finally get going but... it didn’t. The whole thing could have been shortened to a couple chapters and stuck at the beginning of the second book and nothing would have been lost, because nothing really happens for the majority of this story. Minor skirmishes, small adventures, all leading up to- what? We don’t get to find out until the last few chapters. I feel like I’m seriously missing something because most of the reviews are amazing but I would probably have to read the rest of the books to find out and I’m not going to do that. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the eARC in exchange for an honest review. ( )

Three siblings live with their mom and grandfather in a small town where everyone knows everyone. The town, and actually the entire region, is being oppressed by evil, despicable creatures who occasionally throw children into the black carriage where they are taken off, never to be heard of again. Ugh.

This is one of those books that I kept hearing about and it sounded interesting, so I gave it a try. Generally, this is exactly my genre, but I struggled to finish this one. There were a lot of make-believe/unknown types of characters and descriptions that make it difficult to get through and while the kids were the main characters, it didn't feel like a kids book to me. Maybe it would be better read aloud or as a movie. There is a fun twist at the end and a reminder to not judge others based on their appearances.

I received a free copy of the book from NetGalley and have reviewed it willingly. ( )

This is a really great novel. The story is about the adventures of three Igiby siblings- Janner, Tink and Leeli in a war-strewn world. I love the world-building of this book. The book was adventurous, fun, interesting and unique. The writing style reminded me of JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis. In fact I like the writing style in this book more than the writing styles of both of them (I am not a fan of JRR Tolkien or CS Lewis). The conclusion was very nice. The character building was just great.

I sincerely thank the publisher and NetGalley for giving me this wonderful opportunity. Above all, I would like to thank the author, Andrew Peterson, for writing such a great book.

I had started reading the next book in this series (thanks to NetGalley and the Publisher) as soon as I finished this book because I was not able to contain my curiosity of what will happen next. Overall, this is a really great book which has the capability to be loved by both adults and children alike. ( )

[Introduction] The old stories tell that when the first person woke up on the first morning in the world where this story takes place, he yawned, stretched, and said to the first thing he saw, "Well, here we are."
[Chapter 1] Janner Igiby lay trembling in his bed with his eyes shut tight, listening to the dreadful sound of the Black Carriage rattling along in the moonlight.
