      This was a really fun book which revolved around Maris the daughter of the Most High Academe and Quint son of Wind Jackal who is the Captain Sky Pirate on the Galerider ship These two characters are both intelligent, resourceful and full of life and fun which makes for an enjoyable storyline as their paths cross when Quint is Apprenticed to Maris father.This story has a lot of really cool things in it such as glass creatures Tweezle , Gloamglozers demon shape shifters , Professors, Sky Pirates a [...]

      5 Stars Re Read 2015I adore this series so much, and this one along with Stormchaser may be my favorites of the bunch I adore how whimsical, dark, beautiful, and haunting this series is I also think the series has one of the most unique worlds ever I love it I particularly enjoyed the way this book subtly discusses mankind s tendency and wish to play god for lack of better word I think the way it discusses science s capabilities and drawbacks and moral code in such an interesting way I also love [...]

      Twig Fluch ber Sanktaphrax ist der vierte Band der Klippenland Chroniken und der erste Band der Quint Saga Der Titel ist leicht irritierend, da Twig so gar nicht mehr vorkommt bzw vorkommen kann, denn es gibt einen Zeitsprung und wir erfahren etwas ber seine Vorfahren Der englische Titel ist da viel besser The Edge Chronicles 1 The Curse of the Gloamglozer First Book of Quint The Edge Chronicles The Quint Saga 1

      Maris, lonely daughter of the Most High Academe of Sanctaphrax Quint, ambitious son of a famed sky pirate And the Gloamglozer that brings them together in the adventure of their lives This is a divided Sanctaphrax, with Sky scholars in control and Earth scholars in disregard The Most High Academe, Linius, desires peace and cooperation between the factions, which makes him unpopular Whispers, lies, plotting and intrigue fill every corner in the city.Quint isn t happy about being left in the stuff [...]

      Here is the usual problem with reading prequels you already knows what happens Who survives and who doesn t wasn t that hard to guess for most of the book.But when it concerns the gloamglozer, things change and the the book does an excellent way of keeping you on edge Detailed Review Below Here s what I liked about this book Firstly, this book draws such wonders with its imaginative world There are fantastical flora and fauna that escapes the typical dwarves and elves Not only that, there are un [...]

    9. Sandeep says:

      I picked this book up from the kids fantasy section because I d seen first the book of maps of the Edge Like with any good fantasy series humorous or serious a map is de rigeur and the detailing of the maps in the map book piqued my fancy immediately I browsed around till I found the book chronologically at the beginning of the timeline This was it.It s like Terry Pratchett without the actual satire Which means its funny and engaging, but quite definitely no wheels within its wheels and no lines [...]

    10. Charlotte says:

      I won a copy of this book as part of a first reads giveaway, along with a postcard which I thought was lovely I entered the competition hoping to win a copy for my fourteen year old brother as it sounded exactly like something he would enjoying reading, it definitely looked like his kind of book.So when I received my copy thank you I gave it straight to my brother and he started reading it.He said that he absolutely loved reading it and would give it than 5 stars if he could I myself haven t pe [...]

    11. Joel says:

      An interesting world with fun ideas and illustrations However, the plot was overly simple with not much happening until the final quarter of the book The characters were very reactionary, and it felt like most of the book they just stood around doing nothing but whining There needed to be to the mystery More clues, snooping around done by the main characters, and interaction between the two main characters in general While the world building was interesting and quite original in many respects [...]

    12. Alley Kat says:

      It took me longer than expected to get a feel for this book The characters were interested, but I felt the plot was kind of dragging It wasn t until Quint and Maris ventured out together that I really started getting into the book Overall, it was a great book, but I felt there was a bit too much unneeded setup in the first half I m interested to see where the next two books in the series go as well as the other trilogies I really hope the Gloamglozer is in some other books, as I really liked his [...]

    13. Mallory says:

      I adore these books They make me soooooooooooooo happy This one is probably my favoirite of the series The relationship between Maris and Quint is really quite sweet, and the characters are always memorable Kudos to the artist s , I love the monster pictures They are just soooo real Good read for anyone who likes adventure with a good dash of gruesome creatures, brave heroes and heroines, and creepy monsters

    14. Allyson Tuggle says:

      I was nervous starting this book because our previous main character Well he s not born yet I figured I might not like it as much I was wrong I think I liked it just as much or even a little than the three previous books Quint is an awesome character as well as Maris This world is spot on amazing

    15. Vicky says:

      Cute book I love the illustrations, they follow the story exactly I will certainly continue reading this series.

    16. Mdv Wills says:

      its one of my favourite books series

    17. Agatnik says:

      I would give it 10 stars, if I could

    18. Virginie says:

      I read this book as a child but didn t remember much The re read was really worth it.The librarian who pointed this book to my attention several years ago described it as delightfully horrifying I couldn t agree .The strength of The Curse of the Gloamglozer is its word building floating rocks, sky pirates, weird creatures and an ancient tree library , all brought to life by wonderful illustrations.The book is not without flaws though The plot is dragging until the last quarter and the characters [...]

    19. Susan says:

      I was 2 3 of the way through before the story grabbed me, so I finished the book Prior to that I was seriously considering putting it back on the shelf half read Although it was an interesting book, I don t plan to buy the rest of the Quint trilogy, or any of the others I didn t even care much for the art work in this one It was worth a try, because now I know.

    20. Gracie-Lou says:

      This collaboration works so well The world building is fantastic You are allowed to work out what is going on for yourself without the author having to ram down your throat what is going on I m very much looking forward to continuing with the series I read Beyond The Deepwoods as a young adult so moving forward, this is a series I will love

    21. Krista says:

      If you love fantasy, but you re tired of the same old elves, dragons and goblins, this is a phenomenal series Filled with fantastic new creatures you can t begin to imagine Sky ships, lands that float, and magic like you ve never read before Trust me These are great

    22. Frieda says:

      Power, absolute power can be your downfall in life and so too in this book It is also surprising just what we will do to aid someone we care about and how fear blocks us This is a splendid start to what looks like it will be a staggering tale.

    23. Claudia Smith says:

      Such a fun, original, heartwarming read with fantastic characters, plot, world and writing Can t wait to carry on this series

    24. Hanna says:

      I wish I d read this book as a kid, I would have appreciated it even back then.

    25. Halima says:

      was a very quick read

    26. Kieran says:

    27. Tushmit says:

      I didn t enjoy this enough to give it 3 stars two might have been accurate but I gave it the one extra star for creativity alone.This world has one of the most usual yet detailed world building I ve ever come across Unusual as in Lewis Carroll s worlds or Salman Rushdie s super artsy fantasy story like this or this level of unusual, but unlike those books, the Edge world is much less arbitrary Despite the whimsical nature of the world, it is clearly thought out, as clearly established rules, an [...]

    28. Nat Howler says:

      What if the world really were flat Paul Stewart and Chris Riddle have created such a world, rich with dynamic illustrations This world, known as The Edge, features weather that is far, far elaborate and complex than the weather of our world In fact, the weather is so complex that an entire city of academics has been built for the sole purpose of studying it and trying to understand it This magnificent city, Sanctaphrax, sits atop a giant rock full of air pockets, which enable it to float in the [...]

      Text trembling like a wispen leaf p 299 and art are both poetry as always Fine detailed lines bring life to both a deserted awesome cavernous Great Library of bark scrolls, and jolly woodtroll nursie British, as in nannie Welma whisking frothy light woodapple spiced scone batter Mmm Can smell and taste caramel crunchiness, then smoky charcoal remains Funny later to imagine burnt buns progressing through transparent stomach tubes p 133 Pointy elfin ears, adorable button noses, kiss pucker lips in [...]

    30. Alexis Neal says:

      A fun young adult read and even notably, one that is truly appropriate for young adults and even children Stewart steers clear of sex, profanity, and even violence for the most part what violence there is tends toward the action variety rather than out and out gore The characters are not terribly compelling, but then they aren t the main point of the story anyway Stewart has created a complex and elaborate and incredibly original universe full of fascinating creatures and places Libraries full [...]
