Ignatius Book Fairs: Book of the Month for April

Discover Ignatius Book Fairs' Book of the Month: Will Wilder: The Relic of Perilous Falls. In the first installment of the series, readers meet Will Wilder, a headstrong 12-year-old with unique abilities. Young Will can see things that are invisible to everyone around him. Living in the town of Perilous Falls, he learns of a valuable relic hidden in the local church—the finger bone of St. Thomas the Apostle. Many in the town attribute miracles to the relic; however, after Will takes the centuries-old relic for his own use, odd things begin to happen.  

“A relic is a key to unlock our faith” —Will Wilder: The Relic of Perilous Falls

In the waters surrounding the town, ships begin to sink and dark creatures emerge, creatures only Will can see. To save his hometown from destruction, Will must confront these monsters and atone for the wrong he committed. This action-packed thriller captivates young readers and introduces them to noble heroes. Wilder’s adventures follow the ever-present fight between good and evil, teaching important lessons in virtue and courage. Author Raymond Arroyo gives readers an exciting fantasy series, writing with a much-needed Catholic twist.
