Far over the Edge, a mighty storm is brewing - a whirling vortex of immense power and unimaginable ferocity that is essential to the survival of the Edgelands. In its path is Sanctaphrax - a magnificent city built on a floating rock and tethered to the land by a massive chain. Sailing over the Edge and into the maelstrom itself, Twig - a young sky pirate captain - is the only Edgelander to learn of the approaching danger. But the perilous voyage destroys his sky ship, hurling his crew far into - and beyond - the Deepwoods, and robbing Twig of all memory.

Setting out for the Deepwoods, Twig is determined to gather together his lost crew. But will his journey help unlock his memory too? For if no action is taken, Sanctaphrax will be at the mercy of the Storm, the Edgewater River will cease flowing - and a stagnant darkness will spread out like a vast fungus over every inch of the edgelands.

Brilliantly illustrated and filled with highly original characters - from trogs and goblins, to savage cloddertrogs, treacherous shrykes and gruesome waifs - Midnight Over Sanctaphrax can be read as a single action-packed adventure or as the final triumphant tale in a magnificent fantasy trilogy.

  • "... 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. "
