Two brave kids uncover the dangerous and shocking secret behind the Most High Academe’s mysterious behavior. Take a trip to the floating city of Sanctaphrax in The Edge Chronicles: The Curse of the Gloamglozer.


Sky vs. Earth

Over the years, a great feud has grown between the sky scholars and the earth scholars who study in the floating city of Sanctaphrax. Gossip and wicked plots have filled every street, corner and doorway. But when Maris’s father became the Most High Academe of Sanctaphrax, he had dreams of uniting the two areas of study and bringing peace to the floating city.


The Apprentice

But lately, Maris has noticed that her father has become distracted. He pays her little attention, especially now that he’s appointed an apprentice. Quint, the son of a sky pirate, doesn’t want to live in Sanctaphrax. He prefers a life abroad, sailing through the windy skies. But Quint has no choice. He must serve the Most High Academe.


The Legendary Monster

The Most High Academe sends Quint to fetch a mysterious document from the forgotten library. Then he brings Quint on a strange and dangerous mission. They venture inside the heart of the floating rock upon which Sanctaphrax sits. The Most High Academe has travelled here many times before and has always returned rattled, awestruck or injured. Curious Quint follows his master through the ever-shifting tunnels, and discovers the horrible, legendary monster lurking inside. The monster feeds on fear and rage, and on the rivalry between the sky and earth scholars. Somehow Quint must find a way to destroy the terrible beast, before it unleashes its terror on Sanctaphrax.


The Bottom Line

The Curse of the Gloamglozer is the fourth fantastic tale in the Edge Chronicles. Although readers don’t get to experience life outside of Sanctaphrax, the story is still fantastic. It’s thrilling and bite-your-nails suspenseful.

    To be completely and utterly honest, i think it's slightly young. I wouldn't go any younger that 16. Being 13 myself, i think it's hard trying to decide and put a label on something like this. If you bisexual, great! Straight, great! What i'm saying is....We have PLENTY of time in life to decide, so don't rush it just to say "Hey, i'm bi!" Or "Hey, I'm straight!"

Use ur OWN quotes or a pic or something, not a dead character from Harry Potter k?  Oh i'm so sorry if the right to have my own views has offended you, i'm just  saying that the way i see it is that at the age of thirteen a kid is now being introduced to topics such as these and their hormones are now kicking in and they should give themselves time to grow, these are my views and i'm entitled to them, just the way you are to yours. Second of all its my signature , i'll put what i want and quote what i want from who i want, and if it bothers you that much then just be the big kid you are and ignore it, K?
