9780385750783: Edge Chronicles 5: The Last of the Sky Pirates (The Edge Chronicles)

A dramatic and exuberant fantasy adventure filled with colourful and imaginative characters and illustrated with exquisite detail.

Fifty years after the floating city of Sanctaphrax was swept away, the Edgeworld has changed for the worse. Cruel shrykes control the great Mire Road, while slave labour is endemic.

When a young apprentice knight-academic, Rook, sets out on a perilous journey through the Deepwoods, he meets a mysterious stranger living with the banderbears and is propelled right into the middle of a dangerous adventure in which a small group of fighters must challenge the dark might of the Guardians of the Night.

From the Inside Flap:

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.

From the Back Cover:

“For children who’ve read the Harry Potter books and want another world to explore.” -- Mail on Sunday

“Fabulously illustrated.” -- Sunday Times on The Edge Chronicles
