When Bear is severely wounded, Crispin must make some tough decisions, such as deciding who else to trust to help them escape their pursuers. The two make a perilous journey to Brittany - surely the edge of the world! There, they must confront death in order to find true freedom.

    " This book is just as good or better than the original. It is so beautiful and at moments, you get so into the book that sometimes you feel like you are a part of the characters. I can't wait till the last book in the trilogy comes out! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathleen | 2/19/2014

    " enjoyable. good glimpse in to history. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sella Thorne | 2/18/2014

    " even better then the first one. sad ending... anyone who read Crispin: the cross of lead should read this one. I heard there was a third one coming out, or already out; I'll keep my eyes open for that one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine | 2/11/2014

    " Can't wait to finish the trilogy. Think I actually enjoyed the 2nd book more than the first because I really liked Troth. She added a new dimension to Crispin. The first book spent a lot of time setting up the story, where this felt like the main course. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 NewFranklin School | 2/7/2014

    " Crispin at the edge of the world is the sequel to Crispin and the cross of lead. this is an amazing book of excitement, suspense, and adventure. I recommend reading the 1st book though. READ CRISPIN AT THE EDGE OF THE WORLD IF YOU LIKE EXCITEMENT, SUSPENSE, AND ADVENTURE! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily | 1/26/2014

    " This was a little better than the first with more toil and trouble and tragedy and evolution for the character. Not one of my favorite trilogies. "
