'You have a long and difficult journey ahead of you. Travel in secret and trust no-one.' Rook Barkwater lives in the network of sewer chambers beneath Undertown, the bustling main city of the Edgeworld. He dreams of becoming a librarian knight-one of those sent out to explore the mysteries of their world. Somewhere out there lie the secrets of the past-including the lost floating city of Sanctaphrax-and, maybe, hope for a future free from the fear of tyranny. When his chance comes, Rook grabs it! Breaking all the rules, he sets out on a journey to the Free Glades and beyond. His luck and determination lead him from one peril to another until, buried in the heart of the Deepwoods, Rook encounters a mysterious character-the last sky pirate-and is thrust into a bold adventure that dares to challenge the might of the dreaded Guardians of the night... From rock demons and rubble ghouls to banderbears, spindlebugs, and myriad other amazing characters and creatures, The Last of the sky Pirates is a magnificently inventive and brilliantly illustrated tale that will grip readers new to the Edgeworld as well as those who have followed the earlier tales.Stewart, Paul is the author of 'Last of the Sky Pirates', published 2005 under ISBN 9780385750783 and ISBN 0385750781.
