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.

    thanks for posting this Kristen. I think that it is a tough subject to talk about with other people and honestly I think it's good to talk about it in a moderate amount. Now that more pepole are being diagnosed with learning differences or some sort of other mental health disorder, I think that talking about it and informing people will only make it easier for people to feel less awkward or the odd man out. That's how I found about that I am not the only person in the room who has ADD. I'm more willing to come out and talk to people and discribe what I have to go through on a daily basis to raise awareness. School will always be hard for me so I look at my strengths to help push me forward in life.

    Oh wow, a genuine trigger warning. Did the memes teach you nothing?  First off, an actual warning. Take no action based on what you've read here without first consulting a mental health professional.  Now, I have a lot of experience in mental illness. I have ADHD(Pre-DSMV), an anxiety disorder, and I've tested significant for bipolar (Pre-DSMV).  My best advise is to find a therapist that you personally connect with. It's not about being comfortable, because a good therapist will challenge your thoughts, but you need to be able to accept those challenges. And to do that, you'll need a therapist that you mesh with.  Aside from that, good medication can go a long way to helping you live with your mental issues. However, this isn't true for everyone, and it should be handled by a medical professional.
