    1. 5 Stars This book was so fantastic It may actually be my favorite in the series so far I loved seeing Quint go through the Knights Academy, and I particularly loved the action packed ending I also really liked Quint s overall character development, though I wish we could have seen of Maris If you love unique, quirky, darker middle grade fantasy books then this series is certainly for you I cannot wait to read the final book in this trilogy Also, I just wanted to say that the epilogue of this bo [...]

    2. Okay, so I love the Edge and the world I really liked this book, but there is something about the main characters of all of these books that is not my absolute favorite A lot of the problems would have been solved if Quint wasn t a terrible friend to Maris And he s also a little similar to Rook where he s conveniently missing from the most intense things that happen in the plot.

    3. 4.5A great sequel of the series, half a point less for not having enough Maris in it The focus shifted on Quint entirely and the inner workings of the Academy and other levels I liked the new characters and the story development was really interesting and quite unpredictable at times Can t wait to read the next one.

    4. After entering Sanctaphrax, this book continues with Quint s journey of becoming a sky knight Although this book explores a very different side of the edge through its schools and society, by doing so it makes the edge an even complete world.I enjoyed this book, though I think that there is much to be improved Mainly that the book seemed too short and compact to contain the amount of action Detailed Review Below What I liked about this book I love books that take a healthy interest in explainin [...]

    5. Winter Knights Quint 2 by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell are what upperclassman Raffix designates sky pirate captain Wind Jackal s son Quint, his best friend student knight Phin, and forge hand pal Stope, when confronted by evil peer everyone dislikes Vilnix, on their way to fulfill starved old Philius Embertine s ancient barkscroll remedy for the endless bitter cold, replace stormphrax solidified lightning storm energy in the Outer Sky But the story starts when the Linius Pallitax Most High Aca [...]

    6. There has truly not been a single misstep in this series.Eight books into the series and I still LOVE it Now, I tend to love the Quint trilogy than Rook or Twig and I don t really have any specific reasons for that other then I just respond to Quint the best This book is the second in the Quint Trilogy we last saw him in the AMAZING Curse of the Gloamglozer Book nine in the series is the final book in the Quint trilogy and I suspect there is a reason why they want to end with him.After Clash of [...]

    7. I thought this book was of a filler, addressing the quote revealed in the 7th book While I loved meeting new people, I thought that again the continuity was lacking Considering the end of the 4th book, with Linius Pallitax getting better, his sudden death was strange and far fetched for me The end was also ridiculous, with Quint abandoning his studies at the Knights Academy with NO explanation and considering the skirmish between Quint and Vilnix I hate that guy described in the 2nd book, it wa [...]

    8. I loved this book, it was just as good as the first If you read and liked the first book, then you ll understand perfectly why I like this book so much I can definitely recommend and can give this book 5 stars.

    9. 2 stars it was semi OK This short book left me feeling kind of meh 1 It is clearly at children, however, I truly mean this following critique despite knowing it is not necessarily an adult s book the plot seems shallow, simply A,B,C happen and the day is unimaginatively won I found it less quirky than the first Edge book.2 I feel it was shallow because the characters and their stories told held no real lessons and or interesting concepts for children to learn from or empathise with the variegat [...]

    10. I felt really sad that I read the Twig saga first and not Quint s How was I to know who came first if Twig s saga was the start of the whole series I felt sad after reading this book for 3 reasons 1st, because what happened to Quint in the 3rd book 2nd, because of what became of Screedius Tollinix Lastly 3rd, because I m once again coming to the end of the saga of a character I fell in love with.The Edge Chronicles book series is probably my 2nd favorite Septimus Heap being my 1st This book is a [...]

    11. There are some things I like a lot about this book, so two stars seems a bit harsh, but its negative qualities are just so much prominent and horrible.So first of all, the sexism in these books is becoming so much blatant There are almost no major female characters in the entire series, and I thought finally that problem might be somewhat alleviated with the Quint Trilogy giving us Maris, but no, the authors apparently just shove her offscreen and forget about her for most of the book They exp [...]

    12. Wonderful continuation of the Quint s tale The animals that Paul Stewart thinks up are just so strange and fantastic.

    13. this book is the second book of quint in this book quint enters the knights acdamey and makes enemies and friends and has many adventures thereis book was great i loved it

    14. In this book, we go back to the time of Twig s father, Cloud Wolf real name Quint This is actually the second book in the Quint trilogy The Curse of the Gloamglozer is first and I haven t read that yet It starts out rather slow, but this one caught my attention quickly because it involves court intrigue, one of my favorite things in books A fire claimed all Quint s family except his father, who is a sky pirate off sailing the sky Quint is training in the prestigious school in the floating city o [...]

    15. In this sequel to Curse of the Gloamglozer, we learn about stormphrax Stormphrax is created when a great storm strikes the cursed Twilight Woods, and a bolt of lightning solidifies into a pure substance This substance crumbles into crystals, and that basically, is stormphrax Stormphrax is the most valuable stuff on The Edge, because among other things, it is heavier than any other substance when you put it in pure darkness In fact, it is stormphrax which, when placed in the dark treasury chambe [...]

    16. The story continues in this fantastic follow up to The Curse of the Gloamglozer Quintinius Verginix is up to his eyeballs in intrigue but he s woefully unequipped to deal with it When a shift eyed student decides to use him, Quint is an unknowing pawn in his schemes.The myriad threads of this story wind together in tighter and tighter coils as the story proceeds, with all the many characters playing their parts with exquisitely penned elements This book is awash in palace intrigue, murder, assas [...]

    17. As Sanctaphrax s Most High Academe lies in his sickbed, Quint s future on this great floating rock becomes all the dubious Great is his surprise at finding his career as an academic is not yet over In the legendary Knights Academy he finds plenty of new adventures, friends, and of course, foes.I enjoyed this installment than its predecessor the story felt chewable and convincing, with less emotional ranting The content were mature and sometimes surprisingly violent for a children s book and [...]

    18. What I found in this edition published in the UK was a list of the books in the series divided into groups This is the second of three book about Quint and I have already begun the third Quint loses his good friend Maris Pallitax when her father dies and his will turns her guardianship over to her cruel aunt and uncle in Undertown Because Quint had been apprenticed to her father Linius Pallitax, he believes that he may no longer have a future at the Most High Academe of Sanctaphrax But Quint is [...]

    19. For the first time in my reading of this series, I had a hard time getting through the book I m not really sure whether it was me, or the story More than the others it felt a bit out of left field, even though it wasn t.Following up the previous tale, The Most High Academe has died, Quint is training to be a Knight Academic, sponsored by the Professor of Light, and Maris is in Undertown, in the care of her uncle.Plots abound throughout the school, as the weather turns and wintry and hopeless E [...]

    21. I enjoyed this book although it does move a bit slow It tells the story of a young boy who succeeds not only in storm chasing studies but also his who has compassion, strength of character and a quick mind Reminiscent of Harry Potter, this story too creates a whole new world with new terminology to describe it The author has creative ideas and I can see why this series is so popular in England with little boys since it is rather technical, mechanical oriented at times yet still there is a good p [...]

    22.

    23. REVIEWED FOR PUBLISHER Sanctaphrax is gripped in a seemingly never ending winter and it s up to Quint, newly enrolled in the Knights Academy, to follow in his father s footsteps and take the helm of a great Sky Ship and avert disaster This is every bit as exciting as The Curse of the Gloamglozer, filled with thrills and spills on every page The illustrations are delightful and the story is so well written that the reader is instantly transported to a world of floating rocks and strange creatures [...]

    24. This review is about The Winter Knights, by Paul Stewart The Winter Knights, by Paul Stewart, is about the school life of Quintinius Verginix, son of the sky pirate Wind Jackal, and his journey to save a city on the verge of destruction The Winter Knights has mystery, which helps makes the story line extra special It also includes lots of humor, which makes the book fun The Winter Knights, by Paul Stewart, also has lots of mythical elements and creatures, which makes readers keep reading to the [...]

    25. I kind of didn t like this book as much as the others because I couldn t get into it Nothing interesting happened in this book as much as the other books like Vox when Rook meets his grandfather Twig who is the protagonist in the Twig saga of the Edge chronicles But I thought some scenes were good like when Maris was tricked by Quint s letters, even though the book was really stretched out with 300 something pages with nothing really interesting happening like a big battle or a meaningful event. [...]

    26. I thought Winter Knights by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell was a great book I thought it was a great book because something was always happening maybe even two things, you also have to think ahead and try to guess what s going to happen next and lastly It was just in my reading level I recommend this book to 6 9th graders who like fiction and adventure books They re also nine books in the series to read and they re all very good I give this good 4 5 stars.

    27. This one didn t move quite as fast as some of the others but it was still a fun read It takes you back to explain some of the historical events that you ve only heard bit and pieces of until now Of course there were moments of political intrigue and high adventure, as well Some of the action sequences were surprisingly gruesome for juvenile fiction, but that seems to happen a bit in this series.On to book 9
