Stewart, Paul. The curse of the Gloamglozer [Edge Chronicles #4]

Stewart, Paul & Chris Riddell. The curse of the Gloamglozer [The Edge Chronicles #4]. David Fickling Books, 2005 [0-385-75076-5]
In book four we flash back to before book one in the series (kind of like Star Wars.) Here we meet Quint who is apprenticed to the Most High Academe of Sanctaphrax. It is interesting learning some of the history and politics of this mysterious floating world. Although they don't mention it, I assume that Quint will turn out to be the father of Twig (from books 1-3.) This 370 page book is a wonderful fantasy series which will hook the readers once they start. Although a series, each book is a complete story. I am always delighted by the wonderfully detailed illustrations.
