Summary

Those who guard us speak of us, in whispers as...'the Immortals.''

Nate Quarter is a lowly lamplighter in the phraxmines of the Eastern Woods.Until treachery forces him to flee for his life - to the mighty city of Great Glade.

But these are turbulent times. In far-off Hive - the spectacular city founded by the goblin tribes - the clan leaders are preparing for war. And out beyond the dread Nightwoods, in the fabled gardens of Riverrise, a one-eyed waif jealously guards the life-giving waters of the mystical Riverrise spring . . .

Swept up in the maelstrom that follows, Nate and a small band of intrepid friends must set off on an epic journey that is to lead them into terrible peril.

And all the while, from over the Edge cliff itself, a storm unlike any ever seen before, is building - a storm that is to roll across the land, bringing both echoes of the past and a healing for the future . . .

Set in the Third Age of Flight, with phrax-powered craft crisscrossing the skies, The Immortals is an extraordinary novel, filled with inventive detail and fabulous characters - including goblins, trogs, waifs, sky pirates, banderbears and great, battling armies.
