Freezing cold. Bitter rivalries. Welcome to the Edge. As the Floating City of Sanctaphrax strains to break free of its tether, ancient feuds threaten to tear its people apart. What can Quint, a young squire of the Knights Academy, do to avert disaster? On his own, nothing. But with the help of a band of loyal friends he might just be able to loosen the grip of the city's never-ending winter...This is the second book of the Quint Saga, part of the Edge Chronicles.
Now reissued in fantastic new livery, this is the second book in the Quint sequence that forms part of the bestselling Edge Chronicles series.

I'd bet good money on it still being in print a century from now" Interzone "Lists tour in September in Publicity Diary." Books in The Media 20050305
