About the series: Far, far away, jutting out into the emptiness beyond, like the figurehead of a mighty stone ship, is the Edge. The Edgewater river pours endlessly over the lip of rock at its overhanging point and down into the void below. Home of micro-worlds, creatures, tribes and thousands of stories: The Edge Chronicles are just a few of the many that have passed down through the generations. About this book: Fleeing from the ruins of New Undertown, Rook Barkwater and his colleagues - the librarian knights, Felix Lodd and his banderbear friends - must lead the escaping population to a new life in the Free Glades. But perils aplenty are ahead for the crowd - not to mention some goblins with plans of their own. A dramatic and exciting conclusion to the Rook Barkwater sequence that takes the reader on a thrilling journey across the Edgeworld.
