In the floating city of Sanctaphrax, fusty old professors scheme and bicker with each other as they study the weather in minute detail - mistsifting, fogprobing, researching the air blowing in from beyond the Edge. But some experiments are best left alone...

Quint is the son of a sky pirate captain. He arrives in Sanctaphrax at the request of Linius Pallitax, the Most High Academe, who needs an apprentice he can trust to carry out a series of highly important tasks. Just how important, Quint is about to find out as he and Linius' only daughter, Maris, are plunged into the midst of a terrifying adventure that takes them deep within the rock upon which Sanctaphrax is built.

You can practically feel the Banderbear's fur and smell the Tilder sausage of Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell's well-loved fantasy world as the Edge is brought to life in glorious detail in a new reading by Alex Jennings. Download and start listening now!

    " I was worried that I would soon get a little tired of the series until this book completely revived me! An entirely new cast of characters (well, not ENTIRELY- wink, wink) and an unexpected shift in time brought the series back to life. For this story, Stewart takes us to the past to learn about Quint's (gee, where have I heard that name before?) introduction to the great academic city of Sacntaphrax. It was fun and fast paced, though pretty dark in places. Definitely a good read. And now I'm read for book five! "

    " A really good novel- creepy and fantastical with great characters. Totally weird, but i think that is what i like about it. Chris Riddell's distict style is easy to tell apart from the rest- it is an entertaining storline, and I love the illustrations. The characters are really the strong point- and the dialogue between them is funny and fitting for their personalities. "

    " I loved getting to know more about cloud wolf/quint in this series. I loved some of the parallels between quint and twig, let alone between the first three books and this one. It served as a great prequel, and the gloamglozer's premonition played out in the end. At times, I find the entire series very fast-paced, and centered around the plot, one of my least favorite parts of the series. I feel this book did it the most, and wished the author could have elaborated on the earth-scholars. It was nice to finally hear more about sanctaphrax. "
