I was originally given copies the first three Edge Chronicle books from a guy in high school that didn't like to read, but he knew I did. Initially I was very judgemental of the covers and ignored them. Then one day, after finishing a separate series I found the first book catching my eye. From the moment I cracked the cover to the moment I first finished the third book in the series I was captivated. I recently was gifted a new Kindle Fire HD and this was the first title that jumped out to me that I had purchased when I had the first model Kindle. I finished it at a break neck pace and I love it just as much as the first time I read it. The author does such a wonderful job of immersing me his world. It is hard to break away from and now knowing that there are so many in the series I'm about to live there for a while. The art is great, the writing is simple but elegant, you fall in love with characters you've only just met, and the violence is abrupt.
Picking up from where "Beyond the Deepwoods" left off, Twig fortuitously rescues his friend Caterbird from Undertown, and manages to glean some very important information about the floating city of Sanctaphrax, his father, and the amazing power of stormphrax, which comes from a single lightning bolt during the Great Storm.
It seems that there's a by-product of stormphrax, named phraxdust that can instantly purify the foulest of water, and therefore is of vital commercial importance to all the inhabitants of The Edge.
Unfortunately, the conversion of stormphrax to phraxdust is a pursuit fraught with danger, and many poor souls have perished trying to discover the perplexing secret.
Back on the sky ship Stormchaser, Twig erases any Brownie points he has previously notched by losing a valuable cargo, forcing his cash-strapped father to go storm chasing, in a quest to bring back some precious stormphrax and pay off his debts.
This is just an awesome book and series. It is hard to give it enough praise, but we have all read it multiple times. My 10 year old son refuses to stop reading the series from start to finish. Since purchasing this a few months ago he has read all 10 or so books 4-5 times through already. He always finds something new and interesting each time he reads it. For any fans of sci-fi and fantasy this is absolutely one of the best series we have ever read!
