In the great floating city of Sanctaphrax, blizzards howl through the streets as the Edgeworld descends into an endless winter. Quint, the son of a sky pirate, has just begun his training at the Knights Academy - training that involves heading out over the Edge on tethers to develop his flying skills. But when Quint breaks the rules and head out to Open Sky on his own, he runs into the great sky leviathan known as a cloud-eater, and must use all his skill and ingenuity if catastrophe is not to strike the Edgeworld...

Reviews

"Stunningly original" Guardian "Fabulously illustrated" The Sunday Times "Packed with action and adventure. There is a touch of the Lewis Carrolls to its authors' enthusiastic and uninhibited inventiveness and to the illustrations" Starburst "This series is so exceptional ... I'd bet good money on it still being in print a century from now" Interzone "Paul Stewart has created a world which in many ways is not unlike our own ... both fascinating and thought provoking ... a story which cannot be set aside once it has begun" Through the Looking Glass 20060801

The second book in Edge Chronicle series finds Quint accepted to the Knights Academy and his friend Maris sent away to family. There is a new bully around who makes life tense for Quint. But things are not going well in Sanctaphrax. Plenty of pictures of well imagined characters keep you wanting more of these stores.
