As they travel from the taverns and backstreets of Undertown and the wonders of the shipbuilders' yards, to the dark dangers of the Deepwoods, where Quint and Maris become separated from the rest of the crew and encounter some terrifying creatures - and finally to the mysterious, ghostly sky-wreck in Open Sky, where they discover the truth about Smeal - and face a new terror....
I have always been a fan of the Edge Chronicles books, and although at first I was disappointed to find the book was abridged, I was blown away with the outstanding quality of the reading! Not only is the book fast paced and dark in places, but they have certainlly picked the right reader! If you are looking for an action packed adventure tale full of unforgetible characters with a first rate reader, you can't aford to miss this! Alex Jennings has a really captivating voice and his grasp of characters and way of reading draw you into the story, you won't want to put it down! I was gripped from start to finish. My thanks to everyone involved.
