Still a fantastic book though, love the series so far and give 4 stars.
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

Twig’s travels bring him into intimate contact with the workings of the odious slave trade, which had been mentioned in previous volumes. It’s a practice no decent sky pirate ever indulges—but, as Mr. Stewart shows, good and bad people are found everywhere and nothing is safe or certain. The ...more

These days I seem to have a very difficult time focusing when it comes to certain types of books - classics, fantasy, and any fiction that’s not particularly engaging. I have to say that I’m disappointed in myself.
This book, the third in the series was good. I would have enjoyed it far more if only I’d been able to focus. I’m debating whether to continue with the series or not. I’m not usually the series type (other than Harry Potter and the Ken Follett series).
The fact that it's middle grade, fun, whimsical, and almost fluffy but yet it still has this hard 'edge' (not intended but I'll take it) to it. It's dark and almost gritty at times. If it needs to have a bit of 'gore' or death it does. If bad things need to happen they happen. Everything doesn't just work out. Our characters have hard times and have to work for a 'happy ending'.
Cowlquape kind of annoyed me. I sort of blamed him for (view spoiler)[Spooler's death (hide spoiler)] but I like that he became (view spoiler)[the new Most High Academe (hide spoiler)].
Last in Twig sequence but I want to know what comes next for them all.

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
