Edge Chronicles #09: Clash of the Sky Galleons
Synopses & Reviews
In the penultimate book in the Edge Chronicles series, Quint is travelling with his father, Wind Jackal, on a mission to track down and bring to justice Turbot Smeal, the man who started the fire that killed their family. Having left behind his studies at the Knights Academy, Quint is now eager to learn from his father what it really means to be a sky pirate. But, consumed by his desire to capture Smeal, Wind Jackal’ s judgment is flawed, and his actions endanger the lives of his crew — and his son.
As they travel from the taverns and backstreets of Undertown and the wonders of the shipbuilders’ yards, to the dark dangers of the Deepwoods, Quint and Maris become separated from the rest of the crew. Finally, at the mysterious, ghostly sky-wreck in Open Sky, they discover the truth about Smeal.
The finale to the Quint sequence--and the penultimate book in the Edge Chronicles. Quint is traveling with his father, Wind Jackal, on a mission to track down and bring to justice Turbot Smeal, the man who started the fire that killed their family. Soon they discover the truth about Smeal and face a new terror. Illustrations.
