Good morning, world! (OK, fine, technically it’s afternoon. But I have a morning sort of spirit today, so good morning it is!) Today marks the start of the first CSFF Blog Tour I’ve done since Haunt of Jackals, and alas and alack, this tour has gone awry. Our Fearless Leader’s computer crashed after I sent it my request for the book, taking said request down with it, so I never did get a copy of North! Or Be Eaten by Andrew Peterson and so I cannot review it.
But. I can still help with the tour :). Here’s the usual Amazon link to the book. And here’s my Amazon affiliate link, if you’d like to click it and give me credit (and even possible slight earnings) for helping you find it: North! Or Be Eaten: Wild escapes. A desperate journey. And the ghastly Fangs of Dang. (The Wingfeather Saga).
North! Or Be Eaten is the sequel to On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness, which was toured by the CSFF Blog Tour in March 2008. Here’s a post from Becky Miller that incorporates a review, links, lots of discussion, and some thought-provoking ideas about what makes fiction “Christian.” The books are the first two installments in The Wingfeather Saga. Since I never got a chance to read On the Edge, I’m not TOO distraught over missing North! Or Be Eaten — though both books have garnered such positive attention so far that I fully intend to catch up on the whole series when I get a chance.
In the meantime, Andrew Peterson is an interesting fellow who also writes and records music, blogs and sells stuff at the intriguing Rabbit Room, and has (if the Creaturepedia has anything to say about it) a fertile imagination. Have fun checking out some of these links today, along with the comments of my fellow bloggers (some of whom actually read the book). Tomorrow I plan to come up with something interesting, original, and relevant to say :). We’ll see!
