(Spoiler alert) Okay, and a personal note as to why I particularly was discouraged by this book: As a mother of three children I identified with Nia Wingfeather as much as with any other character, and wow, to put it simply and bluntly: "Stinks to be her." She loses her home, her mom, her husband, her husband (again), her father, her other love interest and then, at the very end (during the wrap-up), she loses one of her children. Really? I finished the book literally feeling like I'd been punched in the stomach, especially because we are not privy to her internal dialogue or how she processes these losses. Well I guess it's a book aimed at 13 year old boys and maybe men too, because my husband didn't have a problem with it, but I sure did.
Mr. Peterson, thank you for writing these books and giving my sons (6 and 7) and I an adventure we could get lost in together; for giving us language we could speak via this story that explains OUR stories and experiences when we lack our own words.
Beautifully and brilliantly written.
Some have been critical of the amount of darkness and death in this final book. I read it out-loud with a sensitive ten-year-old daughter who has been brought up on the fare of Lewis and Tolkien, the Bible and biographies, and a wide spread in-between. She has a very sensitive radar when it comes to the wrong kind of violence, victimization, manipulation, etc., and she loved this story in its entirety. We must introduce our children to "real" dragons in Fiction so they can recognize those dragons CAN and ARE defeated to empower them to know that the real dragon in *this* world IS and WILL BE defeated. Those who die in this novel die well (or badly and rightly, if you know what I mean), and there is worth in those deaths. They are not cheap, and they do simply function as plot devices. They reflect self-sacrifice that goes into the ground to bring forth life...seeds that bring forth fruit are not needless. Anyone who thinks this book is overkill should spend some time in early church Histories, starting with Eusebius.
The characterizations stayed consistent and vibrant and robust to the end, and I appreciate Peterson added weakness and struggle to some of his more steady characters like Leeli. Any parent with multiple children should read this series to them tomorrow - I can't think of a better set of books to illustrate valiant and loving sibling love.
Per the ending, I will not give it away, but kudos to Andrew Peterson for writing a novel that has a somewhat unresolved ending, but left me with complete peace. There is a bit of a "cliff hanger," but whether or not it goes one way or the other, I was completely content with the closure of this story.
I have read and studied and taught on Lewis and Tolkien for almost twenty years, and I can unreservedly say that the Wingfeather Saga is, though clearly a different style and from a different epoch, able to stand in their company.
