First Book of Quint
Now reissued in fantastic new livery, this is the first book in the Quint sequence that begins the bestselling Edge Chronicles series.
In the floating city of Sanctaphrax, fusty old professors scheme and bicker with each other as they study the weather in minute detail - mistshifting, 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's only daughter, Maris, are plunged into the midst of a terrifying adventure that takes them deep within the rock upon which Sanctaphrax is built.
“Wondrously inventive... A new variety of characters, beings, classic-like names and gravity-defying geography once again feeds detail and delight to an ever-increasingly ever-eager-for-the-next readership”
Guardian on THE EDGE CHRONICLES
“For children who've read the Harry Potter books and want another world to explore”
