The Immortals by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell - Random House Review by Reading Leader, Sabeela Mahmood from King Ecgbert School

The forth in our set of reviews of Random House books by Reading Leader, Sabeela Mahmood from King Ecgbert School.

The Immortals
Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell


The story is about a boy called Nate Quarter who lives on a floating rock called the Edge. He is a miner who mines for powerful phrax crystals. One day he finds out that the mine owner is stealing crystals. He takes them back but then is on the run with his best friend Slip.


The main characters are Nate Quarter, Slip, Professor Eudoxia Prade, Weelum and an old sky pirate.


The book was a fantastic mixture of fantasy and adventure. The Edge is a brilliant world and the description makes it seem very real. This is no ordinary book and I can see why a lot of people have bought copies. The plot is intriguing and mysterious and you don’t know what come next. The writers are total genius’s to come up with a whole new world and write then books about it. The only thing I regret is that I wasn’t able to read the other Edge Chronicle books. A brilliant read.
