Overview

Nate Quarter is a lowly lamplighter in the phraxmines of the Eastern Woods, until treachery forces him to flee for his life to the mighty city of Great Glade.

But these are turbulent times. In far-off Hive, the spectacular city founded by the goblin tribes, the clan leaders are preparing for war. And out beyond the dread Nightwoods, in the fabled gardens of Riverrise, a one-eyed waif jealously guards the life-giving waters of the mystical Riverrise spring. . . .

Swept up in the maelstrom that follows, Nate and a small band of intrepid friends must set off on an epic journey that is to lead them into terrible peril. All the while, from over the Edge cliff itself, a storm unlike any ever seen before, is building. A storm that is to roll across the land, bringing both echoes of the past and promises of a new beginning. . . .

This is the final tale in the Edge Chronicles sequence and it’s a fabulous climax to one of the most original and dramatic fantasy series being written today. Set years in the future, this book is ideal for new readers to discover the series before going back to read the history of Twig, Rook, and Quint.

Illustrated throughout with outstanding inventiveness by Chris Riddell, it will not only enthrall existing fans of the Edge Chronicles but also grip readers new to the series.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Julia Beiker
A life and death incident takes our young hero, Nate Quarter, away from the phraxmines in the Eastern Woods with his loyal friend, Slip. On the run from Grint Grayle, they head towards the Great Glade and the mystery of Nate's heritage. On the way to his final adventures, Nate stops long enough to add three more friends and a reason to go past the Glade clear to where all the action seems to be happening at the Hive. Nothing plays out like it should which builds to the final climax and causes Nate to examine his priorities and makes critical decisions that leave his friends vulnerable. This action packed adventure driven by strong characters and a plot full of twists and turns until the last page. The size of the book may give readers pause before picking it up, but it reads smoothly and quickly pulls them into a journey of imagination and surprises. On page 669, the reader feels a pang of regret as they realize that the story ends forever. This is # 10 and the last book in the "Edge Chronicles" series. Reviewer: Julia Beiker
Kirkus Reviews

Stewart and Riddell cap their Edge Chronicles with a large-scale grand tour and cast reunion. Several generations after the events in Freeglader (2004), young orphan Nate Quarter is forced to flee for his life from a murderous mine supervisor—which becomes more or less a theme as, acquiring such doughty companions as the mine owner's intrepid daughter Eudoxia and Librarian Knight Zelphyius Dax along the way, he comes and goes from Great Glade and several other cities or settlements that have grown up in the vast Deep Woods that border the overhanging Edge of the world. The long journey takes him through multiple battles, chases, rescues and political upheavals to mystical encounters with figures from the past in the ever-dark Night Woods and then on to a climax in the restored airborne city of Sanctaphrax. A huge cast teeming with multiple races of uneasily coexistent goblins, trolls and more, plus Dementor-ish gloamglozers and other deadly predators are all depicted in lovingly minute (and occasionally gruesome) detail in Riddell's many pen-and-ink portraits and add plenty of color to this vigorous sendoff. (Fantasy. 11-13)

    AWESOME

    I have read every other book in the seris and this wraps them all up nicley. it explains the other endings and ties them together so you finnally get to find out what happens to your favorite charectrs. i would recomend this book to anyone who wants a good long read. if you do decide to read it, you should read the other ones in the seris first.
