The Immortals is book #10 in the Edge Chronicles. The story is about Nate Quarter, a teenage lamplighter. Nate is an orphan who travels to the city in search for a better life. Along the way, he meets all sorts of creatures and makes wonderful friends.

The book is bigger than all the other Edge books and holds a lot of exciting adventures. For fans of the Edge Chronicles, this will be a good last story which even touches on past characters. For people who never read the Edge Chronicles before, this will be a good introduction to the series. I would suggest however to read the other Edge books before reading this one since this book takes place years after all the other books.

For me, this book and the Edge series, are just amazing fantasy adventures. I would recommend these books for any age and any gender. They completely take you in, and submerge you into their world. The books also have drawings made by one of the authors and these pictures are just breath-taking, especially when a whole map of the place is drawn out with all the little details. For people who enjoy fantasy, this book contains all sorts of creatures, some with special powers and others just very unique characteristics. There is so much action and adventure that the reader never gets bored, and it's so easy to picture everything you're reading - the description of the places and characters is amazing. You fall in love with all the main characters, you can picture them in your head and you can hear their voice.

I can imagine the entire Edge Chronicles series would be an amazing hit with kids, especially thanks to all the great pictures. I've read all 10 Edge books, and i'm looking forward to re-visiting their world once again very, very soon. Enjoy!

Book Whales: 4 Stars! Superb as always March 28 2012
By Book Whales - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Its the last book for the Edge Chronicles. If you don't know this book then where were you all this time? nah just joking. The Edge Chonicles is very unique story which transcends time and connects the faith of 4 young lads. The Immortals is the last book for the Edge and the story revolves around young Nate Quarter and his adventure on the Third Age of Flight.

The book is a bit lengthy compared to the books before it and it is divided mainly into 4 parts. This four parts are situated towards the main places in the land of Edge, The Great Glade, The Hive, The Riverrise and The Edge. If I have not said it in my previous reviews this genre of "Other World" is my favorite type of story and Edge is one of the best. One thing that might get you into reading this series is that it has very high quality illustrations made my Chris Riddell.

Now for the review part of the book.

Honestly for a long time I really wanted to read this last part but due to it being released in my busiest time when I was in college it is only now that I managed to grab a copy. (i think it is rare now?) So for 1 week this was the book I was reading and it did not disappoint me.
It was still well written. It still gives you the time to imagine this fantastic land with rich details and description of the places, animals, people that exists within the story. And with illustrations placed on a regular basis you will never get lost in imagining the story.

Nate Quarter's personality still has the same "heroic but innocent" quality as Rook, Twig, and Quint had in the previous books (they were the main protagonists in the previous 9 books) You will easily like him as a person and as the story goes you will sympathize with him with every emotion that he feels. Its as if you are an additional companion to his group.

The art is still superb as always. Very detailed. It is like the mangas I am reading so no disappointment for that area.

If you know Kamen Rider Decade and also Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, in some way this book is similar to that. you get the feeling of nostalgia since a lot of past characters are mentioned.

Storywise, I really prefer the last 2 parts. My big problem with the 1st part is that it focuses too much on the politics of the land. And also the air of mystery and adventure is somewhat lost in the pages. But Im really glad when they finally got to the Riverrise Part. It feels like they are back on track.

So with that slight problem of the first part, I might have given it a perfect score but...
I give this book 4 whales!

My daughter has read these books several times from the library. Since purchasing the series, she has read them at least 2 times through in the last month. The Edge Chronicles are VERY entertaining for both adults and children. The artwork is beautiful.

This is truly the best book series ever. EVER! I have all the books including my favorite, The Immortals. Kinda wish that you made a book about what happens AFTER Nate goes down the Egde.
