My thoughts: The Warden and the Wolf King, by Andrew Peterson was an excellent ending to the exciting Wingfeather Saga. I had not heard of or read any of the other books, before I signed up to review this book. As soon as I knew I was going to be reviewing this book I checked out the other books in the series from my local library. While it is not necessary to read the other books before you read this one, I would recommend it. There are references to things that happened in the other books, so it would be good to know what could be missed.
I do wish that Peterson had put a synopsis of the other books at the beginning of this one. I needed a reminder of what all the important characters had been doing up to the beginning of this book.
I enjoyed reading more about Janner, Kalmar, and Leeli. I was impressed with all that they accomplished even though they were young children. If I was Leeli’s age I don’t think I could stay up all night playing music to keep everybody’s spirits up while they were fighting the Fangs and Bat Fangs. Kalmar had a lot of courage, because he was still determined to be the king even though he had been turned into a Fang. I was proudest though of Janner, because he really became determined to become the Throne Warden and take care of Janner. You will have to read the book to see what I mean, I do not want to spoil anything.
I highly recommend that you pick up a copy of this book.
