On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness by Andrew Peterson -- 304 pages
When things go wrong at the Dragon day festival, life can't just go back to normal. Their lives are in danger as long as Gnag is looking for the Jewels of Anneria, and as long as the Igibys are in his way.
Andrew Peterson is a gifted storyteller. My siblings all enjoyed listening to tales of Nugget, Peet the Sockman, and the fearsome Toothy Cows.
