Mark’s #46: The Monster in the Hollows (Wingfeather Saga) by Andrew Peterson

Book number three in the Wingfeather Saga continues the adventure of the Igiby children, their struggle for survival, and their impending confrontation with their greatest enemy: Gnag the Nameless.

This is a series I have been reading to my daughters before bedtime now for a few years.  My girls love the stories and beg for “one more chapter!” each night (both to delay bedtime and because they are genuinely interested in the story).

This book begins with the Igiby family finding refuge in The Hollows among a brave and fierce people who have fought off the advances of the evil Fangs of Dang.   Like many books in a series, I felt that the first half of this book was filler material without much development in the plot.  However, towards the end of the book, the pace really picked up and engaged both my self and my daughters each night.

As I’ve written before, if you’re a parent of kids aged 8-14, and you’re looking for some good books for them to read, or to read to them, I would highly recommend the Wingfeather Saga.
