'Sanctaphrax will be destroyed by the energy of the mother storm...' Far over the Edge, the Mother Storm is brewing - a storm more terrifying than any seen in the lifetime of any Edgelander. Sweeping in from the open sky, it must strike the source of the
Edgewater River to bring new energy to the land. But in its way is Sanctaphrax - a magnificent city built on a floating rock and tethered to the land by a massive chain...Only one person can save the Edgelands from certain disaster: Twig, the young sky pirate captain who had dared to sail over the Edge - but returned with his memory shattered and his crew flung far and wide. But to recover his memory and take action, Twig must first find his lost crew. And this means a journey back into the Deepwoods - and beyond...

Twig has grown up a lot since Stormchaser and he is now a Sky Pirate Captain with his own Sky Ship, but when he leads a voyage over the Edge – a place where no-one has dared to go before – little does he realize the chain of events it will set in motion, changing the lives of him and his crew forever! This third book in the Twig Trilogy is as action-packed and enthralling as all the others have been and is a fitting end to the trilogy… or is it really the end?
