    Interesting. My tastes have always run more to the intense than the humorous. But if this series transforms as much as you say, I may have to check it out.

    • I like absurd humor, so I enjoyed the series from the start. As it grew more intense, I liked that, too.

      I don’t know if the author will write another novel, but if he does, I’m hoping for something a little lighter. More fun, less war and death.

    I still haven’t read the fourth book, but I thought the others were unique.

  3. Shannon, what a great rundown of all four books. Excellent! I hope Andrew Peterson sees this. It’s such a great explanation of the series. Would be good promotional material!

    I really think this is the closest thing to a contemporary CS Lewis, but it’s sort of a Lewis/Tolkien hybrid. I mean in the quality. The story is completely unique. OH, and though I haven’t finished The Warden and the Wolf King (poor Artham? Oh, no!), I see a brilliant opportunity for redemption. I’m hoping I’m right.


    • It would be fun if he did see this.

      I’m looking forward to the blog tour, to see what you and everyone else thinks of The Warden and the Wolf King. It was quite a book, and there was a lot I didn’t see coming in the ending.

      And yes: Poor Artham. That’s just how these books run. Also, poor … but I won’t say. That might help you see it coming.

    If I had more ready money, I would be throwing it at the screen. This sounds interesting if only to see how well-rounded the author is with such a wide range of tone and genre-dabbling.

What do you think?
