The category that this book fits into on the bingo board is "3 short stories by the same author".

I decided to read this book because I have read other books by this author and have enjoyed them. It also fitted quite well into the bingo board, which was a bonus.

I liked how the short stories fitted into the main plot of all the other books, and how they explained in depth some of the interesting and sometimes ambiguous parts of the stories.

I thought that there could have been some stories about...more

"The Lost Barkscrolls" by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell
Bones smash to dust to protect the peace-loving Free Glades; hot blood spilled to save soft warm glowing beauty. "He never tired of the view" p259, nor have I. The extraspecial individuals in the fantastical Edge world tell intricate histories in their powerfully personal portraits. There are no small roles; anyone can save everyone. A constant theme of lost souls, overcoming odds to find belonging,...more
Plot: This is actually a collection of four short stories, but all four were beautifully written. They fill in a few gaps between the trilogies, so the crazy fans (like myself! haha) can be fulfilled in knowing what happened in between.

Characters: Maugin has ALWAYS been my favorite character, even when she was first introduced in book one. So her story was by far my favorite. I did like Keris though, despite my eternal disappointment in Twig not marrying Maugin instead of Keris's slaughterer mom...more
this is a great book. it filled in alot of pieces i was yearning for, especially since i read the immortals first, and it told me things but never explained them. and we finally get to meet keris, twigs daughter. she was super neat. and rufus, xanths son was amazing! the stone pilot, maugins sotry was so sad, especially since i knew what would happen to her from the immortals. quints naming story was pretty epic as well! its like a prequel to the whole series. its fantastic.
I'm a big fan of the Edge Chronicles so I was excited to get a chance to revisit their world. Following the characters, places, and creatures that make this seris so interesting, we get to find out more information about the times and adventures Edge characters experience. A great series for young readers who are reluctant readers because the illustrations in this book are awesome. A great addition to a great series.
Wonderful addition to the Edge Chronicles series. This short story edition provides background information and provides answers to questions that other novels in the series left open to imagination. If you are an Edge Chronicles fan this is a must read!
I have enjoyed the other books by this author and decided to read this one. It was still amazing but not quite as exciting as his other novels.

Great addition to the Edge Chronicles. The first three stories fill in some of the gaps and the fourth story is a brand new adventure!

I started reading "The Edge Chronicles" when I was 16. The world presented in the pages of each and every book in this series (which spans 3 trilogies, a couple fo tie in books and a final book that wraps up the stories of each of the main characters in the 3 trilogies).

This book recounts 4 tales that fit in with each of the trilogies and expands on some of the smaller characters, as well as the world of The Edge as a whole.
