(For the whole series): I blasted through all of these the first time I read them. Stewart and Riddell created an amazing world, where rocks float and there are a bunch of different humanoid beings running around, each with their own outlook on life and way of living. You can read them in published order or reorganize them into internal chronological order, as some of the characters turn out to be the grandparents of other characters. Either way, a good rollicking read with characters you might actually care about. The pen-and-ink illustrations top it off – interesting, complex, and perfect for the story.

From hunting muglumps in the sewer, flying on ships not powered by flight rocks, sneaking past shrykes, finding the last sky pirate, this book is full of so many different things, it makes a great story. The ending left me feeling sort of peaceful, because he was going to meet his friends at long last. Using the last sky ship, with a full crew of banderbears, to attack the Guardians of the night is a genius plan and, as the ship falls and the crew is attacked, it is extremely exhilerating. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385750781, Hardcover)

A dramatic and exuberant fantasy adventure filled with colourful and imaginative characters and illustrated with exquisite detail.

Fifty years after the floating city of Sanctaphrax was swept away, the Edgeworld has changed for the worse. Cruel shrykes control the great Mire Road, while slave labour is endemic.

When a young apprentice knight-academic, Rook, sets out on a perilous journey through the Deepwoods, he meets a mysterious stranger living with the banderbears and is propelled right into the middle of a dangerous adventure in which a small group of fighters must challenge the dark might of the Guardians of the Night.
