- Kevin J. Anderson
#1 New York Times Bestselling Author
Dune series

“Farland's gift is to make his characters deep and truthful, their relationships compelling, complicated, and real. Even though it's a rollicking good yarn, you experience it with all the power of real life. Farland is simply one of the best sci-fi and fantasy writers alive.”
- Orson Scott Card

Nightingale launches a marvelous contemporary fantasy for young adults, a grand adventure overflowing with wonders. Alternately laugh-out-loud funny and terrifying, there’s a sweetness and passion to this novel that keeps readers up long into the night.

Customer Reviews

Wow, this changes the game.

Fiction publishing is in for some big changes. Farland and East India Press have set the bar pretty high here. I loved all the art, and the music is fantastic (OMG their guitarist totally rocks) -- really sets the mood without getting in the way. Author interviews are great (though I maybe could use a few more -- they should get their interview questions from me!)

And (most importantly!) the book itself is a great read. Keeps you moving through it at a break-neck pace. I'm into music too, so the story and characters kinda speak to me.

So when does the next one come out?!

Best enhanced iBook I've seen, Excellent story!

The visuals, animations and really all the enhancements in this book are really awesome. If Hollywood isn't looking already, these send the book into the "Can't wait to see this in theaters" feel.

But for me, the story was what made this book! It brought back the same enthusiasm I had for the main character, Bron Jones, that I don't remember having since Ender's Game. I loved how real the story felt while I read it. Its one of those good books that you step away from reading and it sticks in your mind, really hard to put down!

I'm really glad iTunes featured this book. I've read it 3 times already, well worth the money!
