Description

Twig Verginix has now realised his dream of becoming a sky pirate, exploring the skies of the Edge as a crew-member of The Stormchaser. That is until Cloud Wolf forbids him from coming on the dangerous quest to collect stormphrax - a valuable substance created inside the heart of a Great Storm. Twig refuses to leave his beloved skyship and smuggles himself on board The Stormchaser - but can the ship, and its crew - survive the destructive force of the Great Storm itself? Stormchaser is the second book of the Twig Saga - second trilogy in The Edge Chronicles, the internationally best-selling fantasy series, which has featured on the UK and the New York Times best-seller lists and sold more than 3 million copies. There are now 13 titles and four trilogies in the series, but each book is a stand-alone adventure, so you can read The Edge Chronicles in any order you choose.show more
