Courage and a heart for adventure drive twelve-year-old shepherd boy Aidan Errolson. When the bark of the bog owl echoes from the forest across his father's well-tended pastures, Aidan dreams of wild places still untamed and quests not yet pursued. Aidan's life changes forever on the day Bayard the Truthspeaker arrives at Longleaf with an astonishing pronouncement: it is Aidan's destiny to be the Wilderking, who will ascend to the throne from Corenwald's wildest places. Only the Wilderking can balance his people's civilizing impulses with the wildness that gives Corenwald its vitality. But not just yet. Many trials and adventures will shape the shaggy-headed shepherd boy into the man who can bring the kingdom back to its former glory.

A large dose of imagination combines with the story of David and Goliath to form this original, entertaining tale. Aidan Errolson is a typical twelve year old: big dreams of greatness that are far away from home. When a mysterious prophet proclaims him the Wilderking, he isn't sure what to think. The feechies in the story are pretty hilarious, especially Dobro. Worthwhile book if you want a fun read. This is the first book in the Wilderking Trilogy.
