The Edge Chronicles 7: The Last of the Sky Pirates

First Book of Rook




A new title in the bestselling Edge Chronicles - a dramatic and extraordinarily exuberant fantasy adventure filled with colourful and imaginative characters and illustrated with exquisite detail.

Rook Barkwater lives in the network of sewer-chambers beneath Undertown, the bustling main city of the Edgeworld. He dreams of becoming a librarian knight - one of those sent out to explore the mysteries of their world. Somewhere out there lie the secrets of the past - including the lost floating city of Sanctaphrax - and, maybe, hope for a future free from the fear of tyranny. When his chance comes, Rook grabs it! Breaking all the rules, he sets out on a journey to the Free Glades and beyond. His luck and determination lead him from one peril to another until, buried in the heart of the Deepwoods, Rook encounters a mysterious character - the last sky pirate - and is thrust into a bold adventure that dares to challenge the might of the dread Guardians of the Night.

Praise for The Edge Chronicles 7: The Last of the Sky Pirates

Once again the creation of the vast population of creatures and characters in skilful words and pictures is stupendous. The fact that the drawings are so full and detailed simply confirms the reality of this fantasy world for fans.....surely in years to come new fantasy creations will be compared with Tolkien, Pratchett and Stewart/Riddell
