The first book of the Twig trilogy, part of the bestselling Edge Chronicles

Abandoned at birth in the perilous Deepwoods, Twig Verginix is brought up by a family of woodtrolls. One cold night, Twig does what no woodtroll has ever done before – he strays from the path.

So begins a heart-stopping adventure that will take Twig through a nightmare world of fearsome goblins, bloodthirsty beasts and flesh-eating trees. Can he discover the truth about his past?
Beyond the Deepwoods is the first book of the Twig Saga – second trilogy in The Edge Chronicles, the internationally best-selling fantasy series, which has featured on the UK and the New York Times best-seller lists and sold more than 3 million copies. There are now 13 titles and four trilogies in the series, but each book is a stand-alone adventure, so you can read The Edge Chronicles in any order you choose.

Reviews

At the sharp end of today's fantasy novels

The Times

Stylishly creepy; at turns gorgeous, humorous, horrifying and awe-inspiring.

Fantasy Book Review

The narrative will cast a spell over readers from the beginning.

Publishers Weekly

If you are the kind of person who likes adventures and different types of monsters this is a great book for you!

The Guardian Book Reviews

The Edge may refer to the part of the world where the story takes place , but it also describes the part of your seat where your child will breathlessly linger.
