Abandoned at birth in the perilous Deepwoods, Twig Verginix is brought up by a family of woodtrolls. One cold night, Twig does what no woodtroll has ever done before – he strays from the path.

So begins a heart-stopping adventure that will take Twig through a nightmare world of fearsome goblins, bloodthirsty beasts and flesh-eating trees. Can he discover the truth about his past?

Beyond the Deepwoods is the first book of the Twig Saga – second trilogy in The Edge Chronicles, the internationally best-selling fantasy series, which has featured on the UK and the New York Times best-seller lists and sold more than 3 million copies. There are now 13 titles and four trilogies in the series, but each book is a stand-alone adventure, so you can read The Edge Chronicles in any order you choose.

Publisher Review

The Edge may refer to the part of the world where the story takes place , but it also describes the part of your seat where your child will breathlessly linger. * common sense media * If you are the kind of person who likes adventures and different types of monsters this is a great book for you! * The Guardian Book Reviews * The narrative will cast a spell over readers from the beginning. * Publishers Weekly * Stylishly creepy; at turns gorgeous, humorous, horrifying and awe-inspiring. * Fantasy Book Review * At the sharp end of today's fantasy novels * The Times *
