Oct 23, Stefan Bachmann rated it it was amazing Ok, backstory: I started reading The Edge Chronicles wayyyyyy back in the day, as a wee lad, and I loved them. A lot. A lot-lot. Was invested. Bought all the hardcovers. I remember liking the later books less Freeglader and Vox, I think? And now I've just read this one. And it was so nice. The thing about the Edge Chronicles is that Paul Stewart and Chris Riddle have built an entire, rich, super intricate world. There're flying ships, bizarre fauna, sentient flora, social structures, maps, scientific laws, monsters, buoyant wood, phraxdust, a seemingly endless forest full of all sorts of weirdness.
And all that might sound really dry and boring, but it's not. It's fun and never too wordy or involved. And together with Riddel's illustrations and the fast-paced plots, it's just what makes these books so good.
Now, about this book specifically: it starts off great. There's a huge floating sky-tavern, and an orphan or is he? Then there's a long part in the middle where our hero Cade builds a house. That's it. I wasn't bothered.
I coasted along entirely on nostalgia, and the descriptions of the wildlife in the Deepwoods, but I feel like if you haven't read the earlier books and aren't already invested in the world, this interlude might be kind of confusing and off-putting. After the house-building bit there are various small-scale adventures, and then the book ends without resolving the main plots from early in the book.
So pacing-wise and plotting-wise it's weird. Anyway, that was a longer review than I normally write, but I really do want to recommend this series to people and future MG generations.
Reading this latest book reminded me of how much I loved these books as a kid, and how magical and engrossing they were, and while I haven't re-read them, and am a bit afraid to, I really think the early books are something special. I just bought the first five for my little brother for Christmas. I'm hoping for no less than utter adoration. Paul Stewart writes, and Chris Riddell draws, a fantastical world.
Names are redundant, reminiscent, or whimsical: The author kills people gruesomely without compunction, at odds with the otherwise Family rating and light humor of language. Librarian knights choose three apprentices at a time to leave the hidden sewers of Undertown and sneak past evil Guardians of the Night.

Christopher Marlowe the Craftsman. Una casa de granadas Spanish Edition. Guided by a grokgoblin then a nightwaif, they ride prowlgrins past shrykes to the Free Glades. In Lake Landing, they build individual flyers to explore. The carved wooden ship shapes are lifeforms: When research is complete, students fly home and contribute papers. After an introduction fills in the history of the Edge Chronicles, we follow tiny overly curious Rook Barkwater.
His fellow questers are one-dimensional. Stob is always loud, rude, and arrogant.
Magda is always quiet, kind, and conciliatory. The sudden insertion of sallow withdrawn skinny traitor Xanth into the Announcement Ceremony Chapter Three, without any line or page demarcation, feels out of place.
At least the enemy tower line drawing page could have been put first. They get three gifts upon departing. The bloodoak tooth is just the symbol recognized by their Underground Railroad, easily mistaken, for example by booksmart Stob.

The invisibility cloak is only used unnecessarily some nights over their hammocks. Navigation menu The spark-stones are not used: Potential so valuable, unusual, powerful, sits useless. A single changeable recognition word could have prevented the network destruction. All those loyal hard workers endangering themselves constantly, betrayed? On the subject of prisoners, why does not Rook unlock all the cells he passes? Diversion, blockades, ending auffering: The callous killing of the next three groups, no further thought of a lifelong BFF, puzzles me.
If Felix is another book, shouldn't we get a clue?
The valiant lad generously donates his special sword, and poof When Rook sneaks nourishment to a prisoner, the outcome seems obvious. That a lost boy aka professor motivate a battle finale, seems to bloat minor plot details out of proportion. Is not the main thread our persistent lad finding his banderbears? Two valiant air-crews killed right after their introduction seems excessively blunt violence. I would rather have a small cast I care for strongly, than an abundance of incomprehensible names.
When Rook's opening recurring childhood nightmare resolves at the end, I was surprised. I was overloaded in between, and failed to see significance in the huge shape leaning down before he awakes terrified.
Rook trifft auf Twig - was soll ich sagen, es ist Teil While the Edge world continues to bring new adventures, it seems that Mr. Having explored the land from the Edge itself to Riverrise, there is really nothing left to cover. We are given a trip through the treacherous Deepwoods but that was been done before with the hapless Twig. Stewart shows a paucity of imagination.
Too many florae, faunae, people and objects seem to have the word wood as a prefix: Also, while descriptions of the Edge are bountiful, that of people seem a bit lacking.
But there is little or no cohesion or sense of camaraderie amongst them.
Rook separates from them too easily, leaving the reader wondering why they were included in the narrative in the first place. Rook seems more connected to the mysterious banderbears than other people, a mystery that is conveniently elucidated at the end of the book. This disconnection also plays out with the main protagonists and their immediate families.
The Edge Chronicles 7: The Last of the Sky Pirates : Chris Riddell : Time and again in this series, children are often separated from their parents and siblings, either through age, accident or malice. Quintinius lost most of his family except his father, Wind Jackal, who left him in the care of academics at Sanctaphrax to study. When they are reunited, Wind Jackal is killed by a traitorous crew mate. Quintinius has a son named Twig whom he abandoned as a baby with woodtrolls.
They are reunited but then Quintinius is lost over the Edge. Twig finds him only to lose him to the Mother Storm. Young Rook lost both his parents as a baby.
Mothers fare even worse, dying in fires or getting captured by slavers, e. However, it is a bit annoying for adult readers. While chronicles of the Edge world continue to absorb, new blood needs to be injected into it somewhere. A good book but nowhere near as creative as its predecessors. View all 4 comments. Again, like the others, I really like the illustrations and the world is well done. The plot isn't to bad either. I really like Rook, he is a bookworm, so I can relate, but he is also compassionate and brave.
It was both sad to see how things have changed, but also exciting to find out what happened and how it affected everyone. Can't wait to read the next one. This book is set several decades after the adventures of Twig and Cowlquape in Midnight Over Sanctaphrax.
It's a bleak world now. A strange sicknesses has come on the floating rocks, causing sky ships to crash, putting an end to sky-pirating, and dragging New Sanctaphrax to the ground. Cowlquape has been ousted from office by the jealous, treacherous Vox.
