Rook’s adventures continue in this exciting installment of the Edge Chronicles. All of his skills of survival are put to the test as he navigates the dangerous predators of Screetown, swims stagnant rivers and tries to keep his wits and memories while pretending to be a witless slave. The story is absorbing from start to finish with nary a dull passage anywhere. There’s quite a bit of exposition as the book skips back and forth in time while dealing with the ambitious, bright, betrayed and betraying Vox Verlix. I rather liked learning about Vox’s keenly inventive mind and felt a genuine regret that his talents had been so perverted by greed and ambition. The reader realizes the limits of his skullduggery as the book outlines how his supposed allies were quick to turn on him, leaving him a virtual prisoner and a mere figurehead to their own schemes. This book ratchets the tension considerably as matters come to a boil, with a massive storm, two powerful armies and the lives of fugitives hanging in the balance. As always, the text is ably supplemented by Mr. Riddell’s detailed drawings of the various denizens, objects, clothing, artwork, etc., that comprises Mr. Stewart’s imaginary world.

The first few books were amazing. However, the series is starting to go downhill.

Normally I love the Edge Chronicles, but this one dragged on so much that I couldn't finish it. Just looked at the pictures, which made the book ok.

The fat guy on the front is Vox, the person who always bullied Cowlquape in Midnight over Sanctaphrax. He really needs to lay off on the oblivion
