Sky pirate Twig must search for his missing crew members and save the Edge from the Mother Storm. Check out Midnight of Sanctaphrax, the thrilling third book in The Edge Chronicles.

Stormy Warning

Twig and his seven crew members venture into the dangerous open sky in search of Twig’s missing father. They sail their sky pirate ship into the great vortex of the Mother Storm, a place from which no creature has ever returned. When he finds his father, Twig learns about the terrible storm to come—one that will rejuvenate the drying waters of Riverrise. But the floating city of Sanctaphrax stands in its way. Twig must sever the chain that connects Sanctaphrax to Undertown before the entire Edge is destroyed.

Shooting Stars

The mighty vortex sends Twig and his crew members back to the land as shooting stars. When Twig wakes up, he remembers nothing of his time inside the vortex. And his crew members are nowhere in sight. The Professor of Darkness tells him that eight shooting stars fell from the sky, each landing in various places around the Edge. Twig remembers the promise he made to his crew—he will never abandon them.


The Dangerous Search

Twig and a young apprentice named Cowlquape set out on a perilous journey to the Deepwoods and beyond in search of his missing crew. They fight all kinds of hideous, deadly creatures along the way, risking their lives at every turn. Once he finds the last of his crew, Twig realizes that his quest is far from over.


Releasing Sanctaphrax

He recalls his father’s warning: Twig must release the floating city of Sanctaphrax before midnight. Somehow he must get back to Undertown. But his only means of transportation is deadly. Can Twig and Cowlquape make it back to Undertown alive and unchain the floating city before life on the Edge is destroyed?


The Bottom Line

The third book in the Twig Trilogy, Midnight Over Sanctaphrax is a heart-pumping adrenaline ride from start to finish. It’s an absolute must read for fantasy lovers and haters alike. Don’t be deterred by the unusual names. The story is super easy to follow, and the illustrations will help you visualize the fascinating world on the Edge.

Well, there was the immunodeficiency explosion of the late 1980's, mostly attributed to gay men. But I don't see how a gay person would have to have a negative effect in order for people to think something about their lifestyle is wrong.

    So I decided to make a forum post on the different types of people you'll probably find on Kidzworld. Leave a comment or like if you fit any of the different types of description! 1. The Forum Kids - These are the kids that you'd find mostly residing and posting in the forum's and there usually the debatable type. If you look at their number of forum posts it easily exceeds 1000. They're rarely in chat but they'll be in there once in a while. 2. The Chatterboxes (this is me)- These are the kid that reside mainly in the chat room. This can also be split into the different types of kids you'd find in the chat room. A. The non-english speakers- Who no matter how many times you'd tell to keep the language in English, they won't listen. B. The online daters- These kids see chat as an opportunity to find the true love of their lives. They'll take it to the PM's C. The broken English kid - This is the kid who speaks in English but it's hard to make out what they are trying to say. There usually the nicest people tbh. D. The Observer's (me)- The kid who would just observe chat, rarely contribute but only when they feel is necessary. They can be loud when their speaking to a close friend. E. The multiple account holder- They are constantly changing accounts and you'd start to forget who they even are anymore. F. The Rebellion's- The kids who are constantly frozen or kicked out of chat for their inappropriate behavior. They're usually the most funniest people. And finally 3. The Ancients- These are the kids who have been using this site for quite a few years now and usually find themselves looking back at their past on Kidzworld and feeling saddened by the change.
