Book Review: The Monster in the Hollows

“The Monster in the Hollows: The Wingfeather Saga, Book Three” by Andrew Peterson

I’m not usually one to pre-order books. Rarely has there been a book that I absolutely HAD to have the first moment it was available. But after reading the first two books in this series (On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness and North! Or Be Eaten), I knew this was going to be one of those books that couldn’t wait. So when the countdown to release day finally ended, I kept a weather eye open for my trusty mail carrier, letter opener in hand.

It was totally worth the wait!

Rarely have I had so much fun reading a book. The Wingfeather Saga is a tremendously good tale, but it’s also much more than that. Between harrowing adventures and dauntless sneakery are moments of passion and humor that will make you laugh, cry, and ponder the glory of the Maker.

In so many ways, this is the best book in the saga to date. Peterson proves that his creativity is by no means limited to bizarre creatures and crazy situations. The character development in this novel is incredible, aided by the fact that for the first time in the series the Wingfeather family is no longer on the run. Relationship-building (and the emotions that go with it) is inevitable when settling into a new town, with a new home, new neighbors, and new schoolmates. Of course, they wouldn’t be the Wingfeathers if their lives were free from unexpected twists, turns, and derring-do!

People who shouldn’t read this book include: Fork makers, ridgerunners, fuddy-duddies, and those who suffer from pogonophobia. Everyone else will love it! Buy it here.

So when will book four be available for pre-sale?
