Fleeing from the ruins of New Undertown, Rook Barkwater and his colleagues - the librarian knights, Felix Lodd and his banderbear friends - must lead the escaping population to a new life in the Free Glades. But perils aplenty are ahead for the crowd - not to mention some goblins with plans of their own - This is a dramatic and exciting conclusion to the Rook Barkwater sequence that takes the reader on a thrilling journey across the Edgeworld.
The third book of the Rook Saga, part of the bestselling Edge Chronicles
"Entertaining fantasy at its finest and, costed out per exciting incident, would prove exceptionally good value for money."

The Edge Chronicles go from strength to strength." Junior News and Mail (Farnborough) "Four stars out of five! It's very readable." Cool-reads.com "The Edge series is mentioned in an article about essential books for all primary ages - These illustrated fantasy adventures appeal particularly to boys aged 7-10 and, because of their episodic structure, are marvellous for building reading stamina."
