Abandoned at birth in the perilous Deepwoods, Twig Verginix is brought up by a family of woodtrolls. One cold night, Twig does what no woodtroll has ever done before – he strays from the path.
So begins a heart-stopping adventure that will take Twig through a nightmare world of fearsome goblins, bloodthirsty beasts and flesh-eating trees. Can he discover the truth about his past?
Beyond the Deepwoods is the first book of the Twig Saga – second 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.

By FAR the best book I've EVER read... :0 :0 SOO GOOOD
My favourite book
I have all 11 books in the edge chronicles including a detailed map of the land to make 12. Even as a 22 year old I have been and still am hooked on every word. Paul Stewart has written each book with such detail and finesse that the imagination has no trouble putting you In the scene. So far I have read the Twig saga (beyond the deepwoods, the stormchaser, midnight over santaphrax) and I'm half way through the Quint trilogy and I'm in love with how each book intertwines with each other, you notice and recognise little things that you've read before and without giving too much away, you recognise how each character even from different "generations" are linked. The important thing is to read the, in the order they came out rather than the order of the plot time line. I highly recommend these books to adults and children. I can't wait till I get to the next book ^_^
This was one of the first books I read as a small child and it was the main book that started me off reading more. I didn't use to read much at all but when I really started getting into these books Im reading at least 2 hours a day. Brilliant book with amazing illustrations that keeps your kids off the TV screen. :-)
