Quint is the son of a sky pirate captain. He arrives in Sanctaphrax at the request of Linius Pallitax, the Most High Academe, who needs an apprentice he can trust to carry out a series of highly important tasks. Just how important, Quint is about to find out as he and Linius' only daughter, Maris, are plunged into the midst of a terrifying adventure that takes them deep within the rock upon which Sanctaphrax is built.
You can practically feel the Banderbear's fur and smell the Tilder sausage of Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell's well-loved fantasy world as the Edge is brought to life in glorious detail in a new reading by Alex Jennings.

This was an exciting,(sometimes frightening) story for a 9 year old. It described Quint's adventures at a rapid pace, and he didn't want to stop listening until after dark!
"abridged really ruins a good book."
really wish it wasn't abridged as it really takes a lot out of the book. the book is good, the reading performance is decent, the content presented here is terrible.
