    1. [4 Stars] I will forever be a fan of the Edge Chronicles, so obviously I loved this book. I didn't find it quite as engaging as either Twig or Quint's stories, but it was still wonderful. I can't wait to see what happens next, and I admit the ending of this book made me feel quite sad. But also a bit hopeful. This story definitely reminded me most of Beyond the Deep Woods where it is more of a coming of age story than anything else. Rook's story will probably get much better in the other two boo [...]

    2. A wonderful installment to the series. Always turn out to be a great read. I can recommend to children and adults alike, for an easier read.

    3. "The Last of the Sky Pirates" (Edge Chronicles #5) is Twig, who flew beyond the sickness that ate all the great stone ships, then was grounded when the last uncontaminated crew died from bad water. Library mislabeled this as #1 when #5, explains my confusion.Paul Stewart writes, and Chris Riddell draws, a fantastical world. Names are redundant, reminiscent, or whimsical: leadwood, ironwood; woodbee, woodmoth, woodpear, woodmidge, woodcat, woodfowl, woodhog, woodwolf, woodtroll; lullabee wood; pi [...]

    4. Again, like the others, I really like the illustrations and the world is well done. The plot isn't to bad either. It's a nice light read, good after a book like The Book Thief or The Count of Monte Cristo.

    5. While the Edge world continues to bring new adventures, it seems that Mr. Stewart’s inventiveness may be grinding down a bit. Having explored the land from the Edge itself to Riverrise, there is really nothing left to cover. We are given a trip through the treacherous Deepwoods but that was been done before with the hapless Twig. Here again Mr. Stewart shows a paucity of imagination. Too many florae, faunae, people and objects seem to have the word wood as a prefix: woodale, woodsap, woodmoth, [...]

    6. This book is set several decades after the adventures of Twig and Cowlquape in Midnight Over Sanctaphrax. It's a bleak world now. A strange sicknesses has come on the floating rocks, causing sky ships to crash, putting an end to sky-pirating, and dragging New Sanctaphrax to the ground. Cowlquape has been ousted from office by the jealous, treacherous Vox. Along with him, the Guardians of the Night have taken power, and they persecute the true scholars and librarians, who have taken refuge in the [...]

    7. A fun, imaginative adventure romp. Clearly young adult, but I admit, sometimes it's nice to read a book with images, especially by a great illustrator like Chris Riddell.I do have some issues with the book. The timing felt a bit weird sometimes. Especially the middle of the book felt like a long winded montage. The world, while nicely built, felt a bit small and cramped. And the main plot was a bit predictable. There were a few scenes that felt a bit gruesome for a YA novel.But all in all, the w [...]

    8. The book just couldn't catch me in the beginning but once it got me it galloped away with me holding on tightly! It's been written in the wrongah, way (don't want to give away any spoilers) with such amazing surprises! Absolutely astounding imagery and the added drawings show more than I would have seen.

    9. This is the first book of the Rook trilogy, which in my opinion, is the best of the three trilogies.First a bit of background. The great floating rock called Sanctaphrax is long gone. It has, however, been replaced with another giant rock, and a new city has been built on top of it, called New Sanctaphrax. However, the rock is infested with a 'stone sickness', which causes it to slowly crumble, and prevents it from floating. Thus it is slowly sinking toward the earth. Not only that, but the sick [...]

    10. I've been a little busy this weekend, so rather than rush through a book and not give it a fair chance I decided to write a review of a book I'd already read. This is one that I particularly like, so I thought I'd share it. It's not the first in the Edge Chronicles, but is the first of the books following Rook Barkwater, and the first one I read.One of the main reasons that I like it so much is the complexity of the world it's set in - particularly with the breadth of life forms. Many fantasy bo [...]

    11. When Rook is chosen to be one of three apprentice librarians to complete their education in the Deepwoods and complete their treatises, he seems to have neither the pedigree or the background for the appointment. But, as he and Magda and Stob journey to reach the Deepwoods, the skill and talent that others saw in Rook emerges. The trip to get to their study base, Lake Landing in the Free Glades, was a trial. Once there they must enter training to become librarian knights and design and complete [...]

    12. It was definitely nice to go back and catch up on the background for Vox. In Last of the Sky Pirates we first get introduced to Rook Barkwater, who much like Twig, was orphaned and raised by a surrogate family, and felt destined for a life he was sure he would never reach. But that didn't stop him from sneaking off to read as many bark scrolls as he could, to learn as much as possible about the world that had been.Captain Twig is now a legend--sailed off one day never to return. The sky rocks ar [...]

    13. The Last of the Sky Pirates is another fantastic book in the Edge Chronicles series. I took a break from the books after I was slightly disappointed by the fourth book when Twig wasn't the main character of the story, like he was in the first three books. This story takes place around fifty years after the previous books starts new characters in the Edge Chronicles universe.With the stone sickness killing off all of the sky pirates ships stones, I wondered why the book was named as it was. Yes, [...]

    14. One of the things I love about The Last of the Sky Pirates is all the little nods at the Twig trilogy that came before it chronologically. People, places, events…there’s even a character from the Quint trilogy that makes an appearance. It gives that extra little bit of nostalgia and recognition.This book is simply packed with Stuff That Happens. I’ve read the series before, so I recognize the fact that Stewart is actually setting a lot of things up (something that is lacking from the first [...]

    15. "You have a long and difficult journey ahead of you. Travel in secret and trust no-one."Rook Barkwater lives in the network of sewer chambers beneath Undertown, the bustling main city of the Edgeworld. H dreams of becoming a librarian knight -- one of those sent out explore the mysteries of their world. Somewhere out there lie the secrets of the past -- including the lost floating city of Sanctaphrax -- and, maybe, hope for a future free from the fear of tyranny.When his chance comes, Rook grabs [...]

    16. This book has a male main character.This is the first of the third series in The Edge Chronicles. Rook Barkwater, the under-librarian of the Librarian Academics is chosen to become a Librarian Knight and to undertake the dangerous journey to The Deep Woods and write a treatise about the wild life of The Deep Woods. But the journey is harsh as the evil Guardians of the Knight are trying to stop them from uncovering the secrets of The Deep Woods.I have previously read some of the Quint Trilogies a [...]

    17. *REVIEWED FOR PUBLISHER*Years have passed since we last visited The Edge and it is a far different place now – stone sickness has stopped virtually all flight and the once-great Sanctaphrax is no longer home to scholars and knights. In these dangerous times, the Librarian Knights live hidden lives in the sewers below Undertown and their young librarians must face a hazourdous trek across the Mire, through the bewitching Twighlight Woods and into the heart of the Deepwoods to reach the Free Gla [...]

    18. Another great Edge Chronicles book--and I was very happy that this one had an introduction which explained what was going on before the story actually started.In The Last of the Sky Pirates, 50 years have passed since The Great Storm replenished Riverrise and Santiphranx was cut loose from its anchor chain. Orphaned at a young age, Rook was raised by the librarians and earth studiers who have taken refuge in the sewers of Undertown. He sets out on a journey to learn how to survive in the Edgewoo [...]

    19. Here we go! We're back to the future againor what's left of it.I thought the Edge would be developed and more happy after Twig's heroic actions in the past, but the Edge is as bleak as the Mire. I got sad upon seeing the map once again. Everything is in ruined :(And then there are no more Sky Pirates because of a Stone sickness! Freaking inanimate flying stones getting sick! Wtf?!The only thing developed is the Mire. It is walkable now, making trade easier. Downside? It's owned by Shrykes. Shryk [...]

    20. A gorgeous ending for both Twig and Rook As well as Cowlquape, as I imagine he would love to read the treatises and knowledge collected. I loved how both Twig and Cowlquape didn't change despite their age. Although Twig's story is heart-wrenching, it is nice to know about his past and what happened in between the third and fifth books. I find it interesting how little about this world the characters know about, which is somewhat discouraging/disappointing. I love how this book elaborated on the [...]

    21. The last of the sky pirates in my opinion is one of the best books I ever read. It is full of exciting events and mysterious plots and I think that the author wrote it magnificently. The book The last of the sky pirates begins in the sewers of undertown where a small shy librarian named Rook gets chosen for a mission to go off into the vast deepwoods and write about what he finds there. As Rook goes off he is unaware that there is plot against him from the evil guardians of the night who have ta [...]

    22. Les auteurs commencent ici un nouveau cycle, avec un nouveau héros, des années après le premier cycle. Mais on retrouvera le premier hérosL'univers est toujours aussi riche, et les auteurs l'ont renouvelé en changeant la donne : les pierres faisant voler les vaisseaux ne fonctionnent plus, ceux qui permettent le commerce sont les nouveaux maîtres.Les bibliothécaires se cachent et préservent le savoir, formant des jeunes pour courir le monde et l'étudier. Un de ces étudiants, Rémiz, es [...]

    23. This book in the Edge series was a great surprise for me. The last couple of books had kind of dropped in quality, but this book took a huge leap back to my faith in Paul Stewart. We got to meet Rook, the new hero in the Edge world, and get to see some old friends from previous Edge books. I love this series and this book brings the varied characters and creatures of the Edge to life. Anyone who isn't sure if they really enjoy the world of reading, this series should be put in their hands before [...]

    25. Love these! Time to take a break from the "serious fiction" and romp around The Edge for a bit! See ya when I get back!This edition on The Edge did not disappoint. Rook is entirely lovable and I join him in his fascination with banderbears. It was lovely to see Twig again, although imagining him old was very, very hard! I look forward to Rook's next adventure! Five out of five again I really do love all the pen art nestled within these pages!
