In the great floating city of Sanctaphrax, blizzards howl through the streets as the Edgeworld descends into an endless winter. Quint, the son of a sky pirate, has just begun his training at the Knights Academy - training that involves heading out over the Edge on tethers to develop his flying skills.

But when Quint breaks the rules and head out to Open Sky on his own, he runs into the great sky leviathan known as a cloud-eater and must use all his skill and ingenuity if catastrophe is not to strike the Edgeworld.

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 love this series by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell. The Winter Knights is the eighth in The Edge Chronicles. It was slow going in the beginning, but did pick up the pace eventually. A must-read for those who have read the previous seven. "
