Nashville, TN (November 2013) —- Award-winning author and Dove-nominated singer/songwriter Andrew Peterson says a big thank you to his fans for their tremendous support of his upcoming book, The Warden and the Wolf King. In one month, September 20-October 30, 2013, Peterson’s fans donated over $118,000 to his Kickstarter campaign- more than $100,000 over the original goal of $14,000. The incredible success of the campaign will allow for an exclusive hardcover edition, more illustrations, a download of an original song from the books, and more. The Warden and the Wolf King is the highly anticipated final installment of the Wingfeather Saga and is being published by Rabbit Room Press. The book releases April 2014.
“This outpouring of support was one of the most gratifying moments of my life,” says Peterson. “The night the campaign ended felt like a countdown to New Year’s Eve, and there was much dancing in the Peterson house. I hoped that these books would connect with readers, but the way this unfolded just kind of blew my mind. This was my first Kickstarter campaign, so I had no idea what to expect, but I love the sense of community it allows between artists and the people who support their work. Now the pressure’s on to end the story well—if I don’t I’ll have a lot of angry kids on my hands.”
The Wingfeather Saga series began almost 10 years ago when Peterson began writing On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness, which was published by Waterbrook/Random House in 2008. The second book, North! Or Be Eaten, released in 2009 and won the prestigious 2010 Christy Award for Young Adult Fiction. The third installment, The Monster in the Hollows, released in 2011. The epic tale has become a favorite of families around the world and has been compared to The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lord of the Rings, and Harry Potter.

Synopsis of The Warden and the Wolf King
Rallied behind Kalmar Wingfeather, the Wolf King of Anniera, the people of the Green Hollows are prepared for war. But high atop the Killridge Mountains in Castle Throg, Gnag the Nameless broods over dark secrets and those secrets may prove more than a boy, even a boy king like Kalmar, can bear. While Leeli, Podo, and Nia, fight to save the Green Hollows, Sara Cobbler and the wildy transformed Peet the Sockman strive to overthrow the Fangs of Dang and liberate the long-enslaved people of Skree. But Kalmar and his brother Janner, the Throne Warden of Anniera, will be driven into darkness to face a nameless evil (that has no name). Dragons will rise. The Jewels will shine. And in the end, an Annieran will die.
