I personally thought that The Edge Chronicles were spectacular because they had the right mix of illustrations and words. I also loved the diagrams at the beginning of the books because it helps you understand the strange yet wonderful world of The Edge.

These books are, I’d say, fantasy adventure because there were all sorts of creatures such as Bandabears, Trogs, Flathead Goblins, etc. I thought it was adventure because there was never a dull moment in any of the books.

Hey, if you pass one of The Edge Chronicles books, pick it up! Don’t just look at the cover and the blurb, they don’t matter, what makes a good book is the story inside. Who cares if it isn’t written by James Patterson or Anthony Horowitz. If you like the sound of the title give it a go and I don’t mean the first page, I mean the entire book!

If you have tried The Edge Chronicles and liked them you would love the Scavenger books, also written by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell, because they have a great deal of action and adventure and are also suitable for younger readers, aged 7 and up.

In The Edge Chronicles there are many brilliant books to enjoy. In the books, the authors used an energetic style of writing that kept all the words flowing nicely. Their use of time connectives and grammar really made the words jump off the pages for me.

What I enjoyed about the main characters of The Edge Chronicles is that they are all related in some way and they are all very colourful, especially Quint who stars in the first three books of The Edge Chronicles. I also enjoyed the plot because it was always changing and full of twists.

I hope you enjoyed my review of The Edge Chronicles and please give one of them a go.
