The Edge Chronicles: The Nameless One
Fleeing the scene of his father's murder in the city of Great Glade, Cade Quarter smuggles himself onto the Xanth Filatine, a floating skytavern that journeys over the vast landscape of The Deadwoods. Once on board, he finds himself at the mercy of vicious gang leader, Drax Adereth who has his very own method of dealing with unwanted stowaways. After a daring escape, Cade arrives in the Farrow Ridges, a paradise of untouched lakes and forests, desperate to begin a new life.
The Nameless One is the first book in The Cade Saga, part of Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell's hugely popular Edge Chronicles. Returning to the rich landscapes and fabulous creatures so loved by their fans, this is an example of children's fantasy writing at its very best. Each chapter is filled with bizarre characters and wonderfully inventive details that draw the reader into the magic of this alternate universe.
