A long time ago, there was this post. It got updated, as did the rest of this series. Only, wait? What happened to the post for book #2? Well, back then I ordered it and read it, but it was not on a tour, and it didn't get posted. So this will rectify that situation!
The series got new artwork, tons of new illustrations. Even more maps! It also is in hardback. So now my shelves have full sets of BOTH editions. WOW.
About the Book:
First they found themselves On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness. Now they must make their way North! Or Be Eaten . . .
Janner, Tink, and Leeli Igiby thought they were normal children with normal lives and a normal past. But now they know they're really the Lost Jewels of Anniera, heirs to a legendary kingdom across the sea, and suddenly everyone wants to kill them.
In order to survive, the Igibys must flee to the safety of the Ice Prairies, where the lizardlike Fangs of Dang cannot follow. First, however, they have to escape the monsters of Glipwood Forest, the thieving Stranders of the East Ben, and the dreaded Fork Factory.
But even more dangerous are the jealousies and bitterness that threaten to tear them apart. Janner and his siblings must learn the hard way that the love of a family is more important than anything else.
Full of characters rich in heart, smarts, and courage, North! Or Be Eaten is a tale children of all ages will cherish, families can read aloud, and readers' groups are sure to enjoy discussing for its many layers of meaning.
So, I'm hooked on the characters. There's action and adventure. Chasing, and running, and danger, and rescues along with friendship and creatures and have I yet told you this is an amazing series that isn't lacking anything at all? Our female lead rocks, and the morals are fantastic. You can read and re-read this series and not get tired of it. Most of all, you will understand why -- North, or be eaten, and by what, and why, and what happens when you get to North?
