Fourteen-year-old Quint Verginix is the only remaining son of famous sky-pirate Wind Jackal. He and his father have journeyed to the city of Sanctaphrax – a great floating rock, bound to the ground below by a chain, its inhabitants living with their heads literally in the clouds.
But the city hides a dangerous secret: deep inside the great rock, something horrible lurks. With his father away, Quint may be the only one who can save Sanctaphrax from the dreaded curse of the gloamglozer . . .
The Curse of the Gloamglozer is the first book of the Quint Saga – first trilogy in The Edge Chronicles, the internationally best-selling fantasy series, which has featured on the UK and the New York Times best-seller lists and sold more than 3 million copies. There are now 13 titles and four trilogies in the series, but each book is a stand-alone adventure, so you can read The Edge Chronicles in any order you choose.
The Edge Chronicles continues with The Curse of the Gloamglozer, the fourth fantasy tale by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell. Readers return to the floating city of Sanctaphrax, where Linius Pallitrax, Most High Academe, takes on a 14-year-old apprentice, Quint. Quint discovers that his mentor had unleashed a beastly creation in the Ancient Laboratory-but can the boy face it and live? .
