Kidzworld has the inside scoop on the final book in the Edge Chronicles by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell.

Title: The Immortals Book Review (Final Book in The Edge Chronicles)
Authors: Paul Stewart & Chris Riddell
Ages: 11+
Rating: 3


The Ruse

Set in the Third Age of Flight, The Immortals follows Nate Quarter, a lamplighter working in the phraxmines in the Eastern Woods. After Nate's father died in a terrible accident, the thieving Grint Grayle took his place, running the phraxmines with an iron fist. But when Nate discovers Grayle’s treachery, he realizes that his father’s death may not have been an accident after all.


The Escape

When his best friend Rudd dies to save Nate’s life, Nate knows it’s time to run. He and a fellow phraxminer—Slip the grey goblin—escape from the Eastern Woods to the city of Great Glade. In their travels they meet new characters—some friendly who help them along their way, and others who offer nothing but harm.


The War

When they reach the once spectacular city of Hive, the residents are living in fear. War preparations are in the works, and Nate and his new friend Eudoxia find themselves caught in the middle of it all. After a near fatality, Nate must travel to Riverrise and retrieve the healing waters—the only medicine that will nurse his friend back to health. But the waters are guarded by a selfish waif. Will Nate be able to bring the waters back in time?


The Bottom Line

The Edge Chronicles is a young adult series unlike any other. It’s a timeless story set in a magical world called the Edge. The series spans ten books, concluding with The Immortals. While the final novel maintained the same writing style and theme as the others, it didn’t inspire the same magical feeling. Not only was it sometimes hard to follow (which would be even harder if you were new to the series), but the book was also way too long—669 pages in an adult-sized hardcover.

To be completely honest these types of topics kinda confuse me so.... if I am  completely wrong, you may correct me (just don't be rude  or try to change my opinion)  but ummm.... I know nothing about how dominate or submissive works with homosexual s, due to the fact i kinda don't wanna know... or be bothered by it (honesty here). but why does it matter in a Straight relationship?  Of course males are usually dominate and females are (oddly) submissive but there can always be a change.....

I try not to associate the roles with gender, because I've seen straight couples that aren't the typical "big man wearing the pants." I think that in those kinds of couples, the man is less masculine, while the woman is less feminine.
