Description

Quint is travelling with his father, Wind Jackal, on a mission to track down and bring to justice Turbot Smeal, the man who started the fire that killed their family. Having left behind his studies at the Knights Academy, Quint is now eager to learn what it really means to be a sky pirate and to learn from his father.

Back cover copy

Take your imagination to THE EDGE! Quint Verginix, knight academic, is called away from his studies in the great floating city of Sanctaphrax. The treacherous quartermaster and arsonist, Turbot Smeal, is back - and Quin's father, Wind Jackal, is on an obsessive quest for vengeance against him. From the sky-ship yards of Undertown to the deserted quarries of the Edge cliff, from blood-drenched bloodoak glades to the horrors of an abandoned sky-wreck, Quint, Maris and the crew of the Galerider are drawn into an increasingly deadly pursuit - a pursuit that will ultimately lead to the clash of the sky galleons. OVER 1 MILLION COPIES SOLD! 'I spend as long looking at the pictures as I do reading the book' Zoe, 11 'Magnificent... I only wish they would go on forever' Michael, 13show more
