Publisher's Summary

12-year-old Aidan Errolson, comes from a long line of adventurers. His grandparents were among the first settlers of Corenwald's Eastern Frontier. His father had been one of the kingdom's greatest warriors. Aidan, on the other hand, lives the quiet, comfortable life, of a nobleman's son. He never has any real adventures, and that, he believes, is the one great injustice of his otherwise happy life.

All that will change the day he first hears the bark of the bog owl, and meets Dobro Turtlebane. Dobro is one of the feechiefolk, a tribe of half-civilized swamp dwellers who fight too much, laugh too loud, cry too easily, and smell just terrible. But another meeting on that remarkable day may change Aidan's life even more profoundly. Bayard the Truthspeaker arrives with a startling pronouncement: Aidan Errolson will grow to be the Wilderking, the long-prophesied wild man, who will come out of Corenwald's forests and swamps to lead the kingdom back to its former glory. There's just one question: Is Bayard the Truthspeaker a prophet or a madman? This initial installment in The Wilderking Trilogy is sure to capture the hearts of young and old, boys and girls alike.

Wonderful, entertaining story!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this imaganitive retelling of David and Goliath. Looking forward to the next book in the series. It is very, backwoodsy, so if you love Daniel Boone and the like then you will love this. and the author does an amazing job of reading his book!

Our Family's New Favorite!

Our family thoroughly enjoyed this adventure. This story was loved by both the children and adults. This definitely ranks up to favorite status in our home. We enjoyed this as much as we did the Chronicles of Narnia, which if you love that series, should speak volumes. As the children and I finished to the book, I knew my husband would love this story as much we had. We listened to it a second time with my husband. Our family grew closer and talked about the book, discussing our different insights and opinions. I am thankful to have read this book. I even find my children sounding the bark of the bog owl out of our window and it just makes me smile!

From my 9 yr old daughter: I really enjoyed The Bark of the Bog Owl. Me and my brothers keep howling the "watch out bark" and the battle cry most of the time. I really enjoyed all of these books and waiting for my parents to get book three. I can't wait to listen to book three!

One of the Best Readers on Audible

Roger's voice and tone on this book is about as good as it gets for an Audiobook. Having an author read their own work is something I love, and Roger's is just so fun to listen to.

The story is enjoyable, all my kids got into it as well as my wife and I on a long road trip. Get ready for the Bark of The Bog Owl. The story is a sorta re-telling of the David and Goliath Mythic Narrative.

The story of king David with a twist

This is a great story. You can see elements of the story of king David from the Bible but, it is told from David's perspective and has added elements that make it a work of fiction. It is exciting and engaging.
