As she dangled precariously over the edge, she screamed, 'Save yourself, Quint!' High above the Edge, on an immense floating rock anchored by a giant chain, the city of Sanctaphrax is home to the Edgeworld's academics. At its heart is the famed Knights Academy where the brightest and the best come to study. One of these students is Quint, the son of a sky pirate, struggling to survive a first year of rivalries and plots in a city that is slowly becoming gripped by the intense cold of a never-ending winter. Chilled to its core, the buoyant rock upon which Sanctaphrax is built begins to strain against its tether - to try and break free. As snowstorms and ice blizzards howl through the turrets and towers of the great floating city, ancient feuds and long-standing hatreds threaten to tear Sanctaphrax apart. What can one young squire of the Knights Academy do to avert disaster? On his own, nothing. But with the help of a band of loyal friends... A dramatic and action-packed adventure, illustrated throughout with stunning detail.

Review:

'Stunningly original' - GUARDIAN 'Fabulously illustrated' - SUNDAY TIMES 'Packed with action and adventure. There is a touch of the Lewis Carroll to its authors' enthusiastic and uninhibited inventiveness and to the illustrations' Starburst 'This series is so exceptional... I'd bet good money on it still being in print a century from now' Interzone
