Publisher's Summary

Janner Wingfeather's father was the High King of Anniera. But his father is gone. The kingdom has fallen. The royal family is on the run, and the Fang armies of Gnag the Nameless are close behind.

Janner and his family hope to find refuge in the last safe place in the world: the Green Hollows - a land of warriors feared even by Fangs of Dang. But there's a big problem. Janner's little brother - heir to the throne of Anniera - has grown a tail. And gray fur. Not to mention two pointed ears and long, dangerous fangs. To the suspicious folk of the Green Hollows, he looks like a monster. But Janner knows better. His brother isn't as scary as he looks. He's perfectly harmless. Or is he?

Join the Wingfeathers on an adventure filled with mystery, betrayal, and sneakery in a land of tasty fruits. There's a monster on the loose, and the truth lurks in the shadows.

Like the story, NOT the narration

Would you recommend The Monster in the Hollows to your friends? Why or why not?

Not the audible book. The narration is so bad that even when you listen and don't do anything else, the characters run together. The author/narrator doesn't even bother to continue the same cadence or voice characteristics as the previous narrator. This is an enjoyable series, but the narration sabotages the momentum and characters.

Great story, new reader

Love this series. Peterson did a wonderful job in creating a world and characters that are easy to like and care about. The narration is performed by the author for this book. Let me just say that the reader for the first 2 was really good.

Love this Book!

Initially, I was a little put off by the change in narrators. I had gotten used to Peter Sandon’s voice and pronunciation of names/places. Of course, you can’t really argue with the way an author pronounces names and places of his own creation. That being said, Andrew Peterson is a terrific narrator.

This book is probably my favorite in the series thus far. Lots of unexpected plot twists, but what I love even more are the beautifully worded, little nuggets of truth and wisdom woven into and throughout the story.

Amazing Series!

The details, twists, turns, surprises, and character developments are thoroughly enjoyable to walk along side during the adventure. Getting ready to listen to book 4!

One of my favorite stories

When I began the Wingfeather Saga, little did I know how engaged I'd be in the novels. With suspense lying around every corner and a style that makes you not want to put the book down, these gripping novels with move you to the core. I felt that I too was a part of the story and at times was moved to tears. There are so many beautiful moments in this novel especially and the enduring lesson that the Maker can make much out of our trials and weaknesses. I am in awe of how Andrew Peterson makes each book in the series more engaging and even better than the next. That must be the power of God behind it. Thank you Andrew and all of those who helped him with this novel. It will be one that I will cherish for years and share with others.

My 12 year olds favorite Wingfeather book!

Wonderful tale of Truth, amazing characters, and Fanciful story telling and believable imagery! We loved this book because of the various skills the children learned in preparation for what they didn’t know was coming.

Authors narration adds a tremendous senses of “being there” as we lived with the Iggiby’s through this incredible journey!

It’s just fine.

The story is tremendous. The reading is just fine. It’s not as British or deep as the last, but other reviews didn’t give it justice.

I'm rather sad...

I loved the first two books in this series, so I was really excited to see books three and four were available. But something's very wrong. Peter Sanderson, who narrated the first two books, was quirky but quickly became a part of the story. The author has taken over the narration and suddenly several of the characters have strange not-quite-Irish accents, which I find very distracting. But more than that, the poetry in the words, which made the first two books so lyrical, has gone. I'm only about half way through and still hoping the original world, so beautifully created, is still there, somewhere...

thank you A Peterson

the third book and the journey pulls you along like an old friend in a time of hardship.The struggles that endure by tenous finger holds. My 8 and 10 year olds just love this story. I enjoy hearing how my boys interact to the saga of how and what may happen next. I appreciate how the author uses his language to make the picture. How the stories slowly builds emotions and how beautifully the book describes the story in three dimensions.
it took time but these stories have settled in my mind and will be with me for along time as few but other great books have. Thanks again A P from a little family Tasmania.

Amazing!

I absolutely love this series, and I’m so glad that I have found it! It is not just for children! The ending was amazing, and I wept my way through the final chapters. Can’t wait to start the final book.

Captivating Story

The tension between brokenness and redemption is both confronting and joyous. The story draws you in and then magically as it builds to a climax not only in plot line but also illuminates profound revelations of life. challenges the strong narratives of shame, failure, weakness that often hold us silent. Fantastic story and a captivating listen.
