The Monster in the Hollows and The Warden and the Wolf King, the Epic Conclusion of Fantasy Adventure Series THE WINGFEATHER SAGA from Critically-Acclaimed Singer, Songwriter, & Novelist Andrew Peterson—Now Available in Collector’s Hardcover Editions Featuring New Illustrations and Maps!
“The Wingfeather Saga is witty, imaginative, and full of heart. Highly recommended for middle-grade readers who’ve run out of Narnia novels and are searching for their next great series.”
Anne Bogel, creator of the Modern Mrs. Darcy blog and host of the
What Should I Read Next? podcast
 
Many thousands of readers of all ages have enjoyed Andrew Peterson’s wildly imaginative fantasy adventure novels in The Wingfeather Saga since On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness (Book 1) was originally published more than 10 years ago.
 
Now, for the first time, WaterBrook/Penguin Random House is releasing the acclaimed and well-loved novels The Monster in the Hollows (Book 3) and The Warden and the Wolf King (Book 4) in special collector’s hardcover editions that include all-new illustrations and hand-drawn maps, intrinsic to the classic and imaginative Wingfeather style.   

Peterson’s creative narrative explores themes of love, identity, sacrifice, wonder, and courage throughout the journeys of many inspiring and beloved characters. With its epic storyline, fantastic world, and quirky creatures, the Wingfeather Saga is ideal for fans of The Chronicles of Narnia, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Wings of Fire, A Series of Unfortunate Events, and other fantasy and adventure series.
 
In The Monster in the Hollows (WaterBrook, 10/6/20), the kingdom of Anniera has fallen, and the royal family is on the run. Relentlessly pursued by the Fang armies of Gnag the Nameless, Janner and his family hope to find refuge in the last safe place in the world: the Green Hollows.
 
But a new problem threatens their hoped-for peace: Janner’s younger brother, Kalmar—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?
 
There’s a monster in the Hollows, and the truth lurks in the shadows.

The Warden and the Wolf King (WaterBrook 10/6/20), marks the sweeping conclusion to the saga.  All winter long, Janner, Kalmar, and Leeli—Throne Warden, Wolf King, and Song Maiden of Anniera—have prepared to battle alongside the folk of the Green Hollows against Gnag the Nameless and the Fangs of Dang.
 
But when the Fangs invade Ban Rona, the children are separated. Janner is alone and lost in the hills; Leeli is fighting the Fangs from the rooftops of the city; and Kalmar, who carries a terrible secret, is on a course for the Deeps of Throg. Meanwhile in Skree, Sara Cobbler and Maraly Weaver care for the broken Artham Wingfeather as Fangs muster for battle.
 
The electrifying conclusion of the Wingfeather Saga blends sacrifice and courage with wonder and danger. Sea dragons lurk in the waters. Wicked Stranders crawl through the burrows. Ridgerunners and trolls prowl the land. Cloven haunt the forest. And monsters, Fangs, and assorted villains lie between the children and their only hope of victory.
These new hardcover editions of The Monster in the Hollows and The Warden and the Wolf King continue the exhilarating adventure of the Wingfeathers and guide readers on a thrilling journey to the saga’s epic conclusion.
