A quest for vengeance. A deadly pursuit. Welcome to the Edge. Young sky-pirate Quint's family was devastated when most of them were killed in a vicious arson attack. Now the treacherous quartermaster responsible has returned, and Quint and his father are determined to take revenge. From the deserted quarries of the Edge Cliff to the deadly glades of bloodoak trees, their deadly pursuit can only end in a clash of the sky galleons. This is the third book of the Quint Saga, part of the Edge Chronicles.
Now reissued in fantastic new livery, this is the thirdbook in the Quint sequence that forms part of the bestselling Edge Chronicles series.
