Midnight Over Sanctaphrax (The Edge Chronicles #3)
Out in the open sky, a ferocious storm threatens the magnificent floating city of Sanctaphrax. Only Twig, who has dared to sail over the Edge, knows of the approaching danger. But before he can return home, his sky ship is destroyed, scattering his crew across the world and robbing him of all memory. Without Twig, will the Edge be lost forever?
If "Stormchaser" was concerned with urban infrastructure, then "Midnight over Sanctaphrax" is concerned with slavery and the evils therein. Pretty heavy commentary for a "children's book" in my opinion. I don't mean to give the impression that this is a fict...more

I have given this one 4 stars as opposed to 3 because although all are enjoyable and immense fun, this volume has intensity built upon intensity, throughout all the pages and it never lets up. The last two chapters had me beaming, breezing through them, totally engrossed.
A great wrap to this trilogy of books. I have qualms of course, but I won't delve into them too much. I don't know if I'll read the other saga's in the series or not (I just may, out of cur...more
Twig has grown up a lot since Stormchaser and he is now a Sky Pirate Captain with his own Sky Ship, but when he leads a voyage over the Edge – a place where no-one has dared to go before – little does he realize the chain of events it will set in motion, changing the lives of him and his crew forever! This third book in the Twig Trilogy is as action-packed and enthralling as all the others have been and is a fitting end to the trilogy… or is it really the end?
Never minding my confusion, the writing was still quite good and gripping AND they've got flying ships, which is totally awesome - so maybe one day I'll reread the whole series.
Follow along as Twig is reunited with his father only to lose him again, then spends the rest of the journey stuggling to recall what it is he's supposed to be doing. knowing only that it's very important, whatever it is.
Something else I really enjoyed i...more
