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.

    I don't think so but if you are influenced by a video game or movie then it's clearly a problem.

The history and discrimination of this community should be taught gradually, much like how schools start with celebrating the "good historical figures" in early grades and then move onto the "bad historical figures" and why they were bad in later grades. So my short answer is no, it is not inappropriate. However the timing could be wrong in some people's opinions, seeing as many political rants are all over the media.   Andrew: Hey Greg what do you have for first period?  Greg: Straight Love 101. How about you Andrew?  Andrew: LGBTQ Love Greg: Which one? 101? 201?  Andrew: Pfft. Numbers are SO binary.  I know you're conservative and you have your views, so I'm not offended. That's not what I meant. LGBTQ knowledge isn't meant to be a class in itself, seeing as there was never any classes regarding straight love. I'm just saying it shouldn't be ignored or shunned because it isn't any more inappropriate than straight couples.
