9780552569699: The Edge Chronicles 7: The Last of the Sky Pirates: Book 1 of the Rook Saga

The first book of the Rook Saga, part of the bestselling Edge Chronicles series.

     Far out in open sky, a storm is brewing. In its path is Sanctaphrax -- a city built on a floating rock and tethered to the land by a massive chain.

     Only Twig -- a young sky pirate captain who has dared to sail over the Edge -- has learned of the approaching danger. But his perilous voyage destroys his sky ship, hurling his crew into and beyond the Deepwoods, and robbing Twig of his memories.

About the Author:

PAUL STEWART and CHRIS RIDDELL are the creators of the hugely successful Edge Chronicles, which have sold over three million copies and have been translated into over thirty languages worldwide. Their other collaborations include the Barnaby Grimes series and the Far Flung Adventures, the first of which, Fergus Crane, won the 2004 Gold Smarties Prize.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-7–The Edge is filled with icky monsters, profoundly rotten villains, and shiny striving heroes, all with silly names such as muglumps, Orbix Xaxis, and Rook Barkwater. There are dangers behind every tree, mysterious fogs, stones that fly, and trolls and talking bears. In this fifth volume of the "Chronicles," Rook is a young under-librarian who is sent into the creepy Deepwoods to gather knowledge that might help the noble community of Knight-Librarians battle the evil Guardians of Night for control of the Edge. Sometimes Rook and his allies defeat the gluttonous logworms that devour everything in their path; at other times, the Guardians of the Night throw them into chains. Even Twig, hero of Beyond the Deepwoods, the first volume in the series, reappears to join the fray. Who will win? Does it really matter? These adventures pull readers along, and the pages flip by in no time. Riddell's antique-style illustrations add to the fun, depicting the characters' intricate costumes and crazy modes of transport. There's not a lot of substance here, but fans of Lemony Snicket, the "The Spiderwick Chronicles," and "Harry Potter" will devour it.–Walter Minkel, New York Public Library
