Publisher's Summary

Once, in a cottage above the cliffs on the Dark Sea of Darkness, there lived three children and their trusty dog, Nugget.

Janner Igiby, his brother, Tink, and their disabled sister, Leeli, are gifted children as all children are, loved well by a noble mother and ex-pirate grandfather. But they will need all their gifts and all that they love to survive the evil pursuit of the venomous Fangs of Dang, who have crossed the dark sea to rule the land with malice. The Igibys hold the secret to the lost legend and jewels of good King Wingfeather of the Shining Isle of Anniera. 

Full of characters rich in heart, smarts, and courage, On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness is a tale children of all ages will cherish and families can listen to together. 

This audiobook includes a PDF of maps, illustrations, and more. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

What the critics say

“I love all the adventure and the wild inventiveness and, most of all, the heart in Andrew’s books. He is a poet and a master storyteller. I want to read anything he writes.” (Sally Lloyd-Jones, New York Times best-selling author of children’s books) 

“A wildly imaginative, wonderfully irreverent epic that shines with wit and wisdom - and features excellent instructions on how to cope with thwaps, Fangs, and the occasional toothy cow.” (Allan Heinberg, writer and coexecutive producer of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy and cocreator of Marvel Comics’ Young Avengers

“An experience your family will never forget. I can’t recommend these books highly enough!” (Sarah Mackenzie, author of The Read-Aloud Family and founder and host of the Read-Aloud Revival podcast)

Fun fact in review. Excellent book. Sweet yet suspenseful.

Fun fact: Andrew Peterson would say makes this first edition of his reading of the book is quite special because of a "misread" - when he is reading about Podo and the bagged thwaps, he refers to the grandchildren as his three children, and his daughter as his grandchild. Anyway...Our family has owned the printed book for a few years now, but it grew to become extra special to our family during the Covid-19 shutdown of the world, and Andrew Peterson did nightly readings of the book, which we watched through Facebook Live and You Tube Live. The story reminds me of C. S. Lewis’ Narnia books, which if you know those stories, you know how your spirit and heart feel as you are drawn into the lives and settings the author has created. So very, very wonderful. To hear the actual author read a book is a treat, especially so for the Wingfeather series, because there are many interesting characters who have different accents and mannerisms that are much fun, or in some cases, quite creepy to hear. My husband and I, along with our children all highly recommend all the books in this series. (Also highly recommended are the author’s Autobiography “Adorning the Dark,” plus all his music, especially “Is He Worthy,” and “All Things Together.”)

Best books ever

The Wingfeather Saga are the most enjoyable books I have ever read. I am so happy that Andrew Peterson decided to redo the first two books and read them himself. These books appeal to a wide range of ages. I myself am 61 years old and love them and my grandchildren love them as well. I highly recommend these books to anyone.

Very entertaining

I enjoyed the story as well as the performance of it. The author did great at switching voices. I’m looking forward to the other books.
