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.

Loved it!

The author brought a familiar story to life in an exciting and unique way. I can't wait to share this book with my Jr High English class.

Poor quality and sloppy copy of the David and Goliath story

Sloppy writing, several elements not true to the time (ie they know his father had a stroke??) Names of places and people are close enough to real life, but not distinct enough to create a world and story that is truly unique. Stuck somewhere the real world old Medieval Europe and a unique fairy tail land - this story fails to deliver well either way.

In the end, it is a poor retelling if the story of David and Goliath without adding anything of value and leaves me wanting to prefer reading the original story from the Bible

The authors southern accent was really distracting and created a disconnect to the story. Medieval times? In an Alabama swamp with alligators? This book is really all over the place. Returned for a refund.
