       Additional Information  
      A dramatic and exuberant fantasy adventure in the bestselling The Edge Chronicles series, embellished throughout with marvellous black and white illustrations

    In this first Edgeworld adventure to feature Rook Barkwater, our budding hero 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 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 he encounters a mysterious character -- the last sky pirate -- and is thrust into a bold adventure that dares to challenge the might of the dreaded Guardians of the Night.
