Considering it's now offically a 'best seller,' its bound to be in stock longer.  So you should be able to pick it up and find it at more locations.  You can also buy it online.

I've heard of it, but didn't know much about it. Just based upon the pictures, it strikes me as Watership Down meets Lord of the Rings, but I don't actually know anything of the story. The cloaks and backpacks and pipes all looks so very Tolkien. Maybe I'll pick it up.
