Twelve-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. Written in the same fashion as The Lord of the
Rings or The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Bark of
the Bog Owl, as the author says, will help “direct a God-
fearing boy’s sense of adventure and warrior spirit – his
