Product Description

Amazon Review

This second book of The Edge Chronicles tells a new, self-contained story independent of, although rooted in, the exuberant fantasy bestiary and travelogue of Beyond the Deepwoods.

Young hero Twig is now reunited with his sky-pirate father as the lowliest crew-member of the flying sailship Stormchaser. In the fanciful physics operating at the edge of the world some stones can defy gravity, like the flight-rock that lifts Stormchaser. Thus the academic community of Sanctaphrax is built on a floating mountain chained to the ground of Undertown below.

Thanks to a tortuous history of corruption in high places the demand for chain-manufacture is forever increasing, leading to massive industrial pollution--because Sanctaphrax's precious, magically superheavy "stormphrax" ballast is gradually being stolen for alchemical use, and Stormchaser undertakes the dangerous mission to find new supplies at the deadly core of a Great Storm. But nothing, absolutely nothing, works out as expected in this madly twisting plot.

Twig's companions are beset by spies, traitors, memorable villains and the living dead and there are perhaps more deaths than might be expected in a "children's" novel, but Stewart's compulsive storytelling, perfectly complemented by Riddell's fine-lined illustrations, makes it all goodstuff. --David Langford --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

Can Paul Stewart Get Any Better? This series of books has captured my imagination and emotions. All I can say to them is, keep writing them please. -- Reviewer: A reader from Downham Market, Norfolk

Fantastic, the best I have read this month! Twig, now a sky pirate captain, finally finds his father, only to say goodbye. Thumbs up! A must read. -- Reviewer: (galadriel13@animail.net) from Singapore

I am 13 and think these books are much better than Harry Potter. They are full of everthing you should have in a book -- Reviewer: A reader from England

I really like this trilogy, it's full of suspense, amazing characters and brilliantly thought of places. Buy them all, you'll be absoloutely astounded! -- Reviewer: A reader from U.K

This book enchanted me beyond belief.Its Gnomes and monsters fascinated me. -- Reviewer: A reader from Leeds, England - Theo Moore, aged 9

I have read Beyond the Deepwoods and I thought there would be no other book like it, but then I found the second book of the Twig Series and thought that it was even better. I can't wait until I buy the next book of the Twig Series, I am really looking forward to it. I recommend this to children aged 9 to 13. Any person aged 9 to 13 should go out to the shop and buy it. I myself am going to go out and buy the next Edge Chronicle book of the Twig Series which is called Midnight over Sanctaphrax as soon as I have saved enough pocket money.

This book is great, it is a must buy for those people who liked first one.
This book is the continuation of Beyond the Deepwoods and tells the story of young boy named Twig who has finally found a place that he fits in. You will find this book so good that it will suck you out of this world and transport you to the world where Twig lives namingly the Edge. In this book you will find adventure,death and a story line that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Though this story would not have had that finishing touch if Chris Riddell had not portrayed the book so well with his imaginative drawings that look exactly the way you would picture it. The pictures and storyline complient each other so well that I am confident enough to say that I shall read this book a few times through.

Stormchaser is totally and utterly brilliant ( as all of The Edge Chronicles are!) I am a huge fan of these books!!! Stormchaser is so imaginative and inspiring with absolutely brilliant illustrations to go with it! The Edge Chronicles are so good, I think they ought to be made into films! Keep writing, Paul Stewart, keep writing!
Look out J.K Rowling, you are about to be dethroned!!!

Although I prefer the original covers of the Edge Chronicle books, the actual content is brilliant - for kids and adults (sometimes more so adults than kids). It can be read by all ages and doesn't necessarily have to be read in any order - each book can be read on its own, although, if you choose to do this, you will miss out on other great books.

The the second book in the Twig trilogy and follows him as he goes 'storm chasing' for the fate of Sanctaphrax counts on it. As not to reveal too much I'll leave it at that - besides you can read it for yourself.

I've never read such an packed book. From the friendly banderbears to the loyal flat-heads this book is addictive. Once you start reading you can't put the book down. It's a most gripping storyline with everlasting excitement. I can't wait for the next book and would recommend it to anyone from 10 to 110!

Stormchaser was a awsome book, and the plot was fantastic. Unlike the others you new the basic plot at the start, (but not all the details). However, I felt there were a little to many deaths, and that spoiled it a bit.
