“I was so unusually impressed by his insights and ideas for creative writing that I concluded he must be an excellent writer himself.” – Cathy Duffy

In book three of the Wilderking Trilogy, Aidan returns home from three years in Feechiefen Swamp to discover that a party known as the Aidanites has arisen among his fellow Corenwalders. They believe the “Wilderking Chant” makes reference to Aidan, and that he is destined to overthrow Corenwald’s tyrant King Darrow.

Aidan has no intention of leading any such rebellion. But when thekingdom continues to weaken, and the enemy Pyrthens threaten to invade, it’s clear the Aidanites are the only army his people have left. What soon transpires among civilizers, feechiefolk, Corenwalders, and Pyrthens alike, no reader could predict.

Jonathan Rogers calls The Wilderking Trilogy a fantasy-adventure story told in an American accent. The wild places of the imaginary island of Corenwald bear more than a passing resemblance to the vine-tangled swamps and forests of his native Georgia. And in the voices of Corenwald’s inhabitants—feechie and civilizer alike—you can hear the echoes of American swampers and frontiersmen. The Bark of the Bog Owl, the first book of The Wilderking Trilogy, has already found a receptive audience among Rogers own six children. The Rogers clan lives in Nashville, Tennessee.

Jonathan Rogers received his undergraduate degree from Furman University in South Carolina and holds a Ph.D. in seventeenth-century English literature from Vanderbilt University. He is the creator of Grammar for Writers and Creative Writing.
