Since his childhood in the Deep Woods, young Twig has always longed to soar above the forest canopy and explore the sky. Now a crew member on his father’s sky pirate ship, the Stormchaser, his dream seems fulfilled. But a much higher destiny awaits Twig. The lofty city of Sanctaphrax—built on a giant rock, floating high in the sky—is at the point of disaster. The city’s future is dependent on stormphrax—a valuable substance available only from the heart of a Great Storm. And only the Stormchaser, with Twig onboard, could risk entering a storm.

Quotes & Awards

  • Stormchaser is a rousing adventure tale with a story that’s more complex and satisfying than its predecessor…many young readers who crave action and enjoy long books will find it a riveting tale. Stewart manages the many characters and the frequent shifts of scene well, driving the story at full throttle toward its inevitable climax.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “The narrative will cast a spell over readers from the beginning with its utterly odd, off-kilter sense of logic and a vocabulary that is equal parts Dr. Seuss and Lewis Carroll.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 2/19/2014

    " Let's see... Its been a few years since I've read this book. So... Twig finally joins his father Quintus on the Stormchaser and he meets tons of other awesome characters. They are on a quest to find The Great Storm that will bring Stormphrax to the Academy so that it will stay a float and not let go of the anchor chain. So this is a daring quest and an adventurous book with a few mistakes made along the way. As you can see I can't remember much from this book but I can remember the first book and the last book of Twig's trilogy much better. I don't know why this one isn't as memorable as the other ones but it's still good. "

    " The second in the Edge Chronicles--Stormchaser Twig ventures with the crew of the sky ship Stormchaser to collect stormphrax. Disaster strikes the sky ship. Twig and the crew abandon ship leaving Twig's father still aboard his broken craft. Twig lands in the Twilight Woods where reality is shifting and madness just a though away. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlytte | 2/5/2014

    " I loved this book! not only did the unusual plot catch my eye. but also the characters and the pictures in the book, you don't see many books with pictures now days "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melinda | 2/5/2014

    " Probably the best out of the 3. But still lacked character development. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle Guffey | 2/4/2014

    " The story format was different, was quite a bit darker than the 1st in the series and had some politics that were hard for my 10 year old to understand. Still very intriguing with fascinating pictures. Think we will wait to read the 3rd. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deborah | 2/3/2014

    " Great book... enjoyed it much more than 1st book. It was exciting and wasn't so repetitive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristina UK | 2/3/2014

    " The second of the Edge Chronicles was better than the first, though probably for a slightly older audience (it's a little gorier and darker than the first book) but the I love how it's developed on the solid foundation of the first volume. For this reason i've left it firmly in the YA category and didn't think i'd consider it a "childrens" book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ainsley Dole | 2/1/2014

    " Very imaginative has alot of action. Realy good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Olivia | 1/30/2014

    " Definitely better the second time around. My favorite part is still when Twig comes into his own near the end of the book. I found it slightly far-fetched that after two years on a sky pirate ship, that Cloud Wolf taught Twig to fly, regardless of over-favoritism or not. In the beginning, Twig reminded me a lot of what he was like in the first book, and I found it comforting to see him with a home, and not so lost by the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 1/20/2014

    " More enjoyable than the first in the series because Twig develops a backbone and finally things start going well, but I found the transformation a little abrupt (tho not difficult to believe). As with the first, when characters die, they just die, and sometimes it is gruesome. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim | 1/12/2014

    " great story of trimph and tribute were many backstabbers, traitors and enemies hide behind every conner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth Bird | 1/5/2014

    " to me this is a really good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie Allen | 11/8/2013

    " Much more exciting then the last book, though quite the cliffhanger to deal with. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erika | 11/4/2013

    " This book has a bit of a slow start, but after I got into it, I enjoyed it more than the first on in the series. A little dark and gruesome, but some themes and imaginative creatures. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Veronica Bailey | 7/17/2011

    " Though I enjoyed the first book in this series, this one was definitely an improvement. The plot was more coherent, and read more like a novel than a series of events. Though I have to admit, I was rather surprised by the sheer amount of death -- of both good guys and bad guys -- in a YA book! "
