Review

"One of the best Edge Chronicles books yet" (Independent on Sunday)

"Visual literacy is a phrase generally applied to the interpretation of pictures but it does seem that here are both aspects perfectly conjoined" (The School Librarian)

"The words and pictures are as imaginatively creative as ever in this tenth book" (Sainsbury's Magazine)

"A highly recommended must-read set of short stories for fans old and new" (writeaway.org.uk)

Book Description

An exciting new addition to the Edge Chronicles. This collection provides a perfect entry point to the series and links together all three trilogies.

Format: Hardcover
The Lost Barkscrolls is the tenth novel of the Edge Chronicles.
And has four stories all concerned with the different ages of the discworld.
First though, there are the main characters of the Edge chronicles.
There are three trilogy's each with their own heroes.
Here they are:
In order of events;

The first trilogy's hero is: Quint
[The Curse Of The Gloamglozer,
The Winter Knights,
Clash Of The Sky Galleons]

The second trilogy's hero is: Twig
[Beyond The Deepwoods,
Stromchaser,
Midnight Over Sanctaphrax]

The third trilogy's hero is: Rook
[The Last Of The Sky Pirates,
Vox,
Freeglader]

Which then leads us to this book.
The first two stories, are two books oroginally released as world book day mini books (Cloud Wolf & The Stone Pilot).
The second book tells the story of Keris - Twigs daughter/Rooks mother - travelling with webfooted goblins, to their home and then to the Freeglades (The Slaughterers Quest).
In the last story, Rufus - the son of a character from the Rook trilogy - is a fellow member of the freeglade lancers, and him and his quad are attacked by a mysterious creature, and when they track down where it comes from they discover a secret camp making deadly weapons,
In the end Rufus discovers something that could spawn the begginings of the third age of flight (The Blooding Of Rufus Filatine).

This is a great book and is definitely worth buy.

Format: Hardcover
This is an amalgamation of books, some published, some not. If you are familiar with the Edge Chronicles, the first two are quite standard, and were both released as 'World Book Day' titles. The second story especially is very like one of the books and I thought I recognised some of the pictures. The third - the Slaughterers Quest - raises the stakes a bit though, as it takes you to a new environment - some great lakes at the edge of the forest - and introduces a new and (thankfully) peaceful race. The fourth story is back to the blood and guts of battle, told from a rookie soldier's point of view, but again introduces some new creatures and new locations, and even opens the door for the future - powered flight! In the end, a great read.

As always the writing, illustrations and storytelling are stunning. A set of four 'lost' stories regarding two well known characters, and two new - Cloud Wolf, the Stone Pilot, Rook's mother and one other which I'll not name as it might be considered a spoiler.

Nice chance to see how things came about or progressed as the world moved on between books.

My only criticism is that, in the Kindle version, two of the stories are included in previous books - Cloud Wolf in Curse of the Gloamglozer and the Stone Pilot in Midnight Over Sanctaphrax so effectively you play full price for only half of a new book.

My 13 year old son absolutely loved this series of books and enjoyed The Lost Barkscrolls. He would read every night before going to bed and it was difficult to get him to turn out the light! If you have a reluctant reader in your house who you think will never get into a book or a series of books, then try this series!
