Quotes & Awards

  • In the Tolkien/Pratchett tradition, fabulously illustrated and written with more than usual elegance. The Sunday Times
  • "... combines skilfully paced narrative with global issues such as slavery and environmental destruction. Lots ofsurprising plot developments... full of everything Independent
  • As before, Stewart's descriptions of corrupt and disgusting goings-on are brilliantly visualized; also as before, Riddell's line drawings are exquisitely detailed and notably grotesque.. Altogether this series is so exceptional that if I had any chance of collecting, I'd bet good money on it still being in print a century from now.. When's the next book coming? Interzone

    " I really enjoyed this book; I like all of the Edge Chronicles. The only thing that gets me is that you never know which character may end up dying. Unlike most writers, Stewart has no qualms about killing off major characters. I kind of like it, but sometimes it just upsets me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sdoconnor | 8/24/2013

    " I really liked this book, very awesome adventure story. I think it was a lot better than Harry Potter, because it sort of emulates real life with slums and criminals and so on and so forth. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jared | 7/27/2013

    " Stangle assorted together but inventively creative. I like how the author pulls y6ou into the story in order to help the main character help him find all his crew members. Interesting read. It almost like a combination of Alice and Wonderland and Lord of the Rings....in a way. "

    " These books got kind of gory and gross after a while. I was reading these with my children but we decided to stop. "
