    [3.5 Stars] I liked this one okay. I didn't think much really happened, and I didn't care for Vox either. I'm curious about what will happen next in the story, but the Edge just isn't the same in this trilogy as it was in the past ones. It isn't as magical and whimsical. It's dark and not nearly as exciting. Hopefully the last book in this trilogy will bring back some of the excitement and glory of the Edge that the other two trilogies had.

    As a child there was one series of books, above all others, that caught my imagination: The Edge Chronicles. I used to prance around my garden pretending to be a sky pirate and you can’t imagine the excitement when I first went on a boat, the closest thing to a sky pirate ship that I could access. Okay, in my defense I was about six at the time, not that I’m saying I have grown out of the feeling!However, there was one of the trilogies that I couldn’t get into… Rook’s. I guess the lack of proper sky craft was too much for me! A few weeks ago I managed to read ‘The Last of the Sky Pirates’ all the way through for the first time which left me ready to tackle the second book ‘Vox’…Naturally, I loved it! There is something quite fantastic about the way in which these books conjure up a whole new world that is quite amazing yet somehow believable. From the characters to the places to the creatures, Paul Stewart’s writing, reinforced by Chris Riddell’s illustrations, creates vivid concepts that are exciting in their own right!In ‘Vox’ we get to discover more vividly what has become of the world beyond the Deepwoods as Rook returns from his time training and writing. This is what sets the book apart from the others in the series, I feel. There has always been a contrast between good and evil but it’s always been on a small scale. In this installment we see just how deep reaching the corruption truly is and we also come to appreciate how impossible it is for the ‘good forces’ to possibly win out. This made the book a lot darker than its earlier counterparts. Another aspect that I felt made ‘Vox’ more disturbing was the interaction between the people in Vox’s household. Their behaviours, be they threatening or loving, were tainted by an implication of obsession that made them seem exceptionally dark. I couldn’t help but feel that, although younger readers wouldn’t notice these overtones to the same degree therefore the book is perfectly suitable for them , this book is really a lot more adult that earlier installments. Something I also really appreciated was the way in which this book, perhaps more so than the previous novel, was obviously set later than the Quint and Twig trilogies. There was a real feeling of a progression of time and this added to the entire atmosphere. I also love the small ties to the past and to previous novels. (view spoiler)[I worked out the setting of Felix’s house before it was revealed so that wasn’t too much of a shock but then they had to go and uncover the mural. (hide spoiler)]I don’t really know if I can go into any more detail without giving major plot points away or going over aspects of previous books so I’ll leave this one here. Will certainly be reading “Freeglader” when I can to my book collection again!

    Der schwarze Mahlstrom bedroht Unterstadt. Kann man ihn aufhalten. Bringt er die erhoffte Erlösung oder stürzt er alles in Chaos? Aber da es der zweite Teil um Rook ist, werden wir erst in"Rook in den Freien Tälern" erfahren, wie die Geschichte ausgeht.

    "Vox" (The Edge Chronicles, Rook Trilogy 2) is the main enemy, a bloated obese usurper drugged to oblivion in the falling Palace of Statues by poison mistress Hestera, who buys slave #11 librarian knight Rook, trapped when his skyship was shot down by Vox's fireball over Screetown. I was glad the brave lad found Felix again, his best friend from school (The Last of the Skypirates, #5) now leader of the "Ghosts" guerilla band; I was disappointed an important figure in his life had vanished without trace. Nothing is predictable in a world where cooling stones float; librarian knights live in the sewers and fly in the skies. Rock demon monsters, Mother Muleclaw's shryke female vultures, General Tytugg's battalion of goblins and the Great dark maelStorm will all arrive at midnight - or sooner? I could maybe better sort out multiple villains, High Guardian Orbix, memory-ridden-stealer ghostwaif Amberfuce if the cleverly titled chapters had a Table of Contents; short sections hopscotch confusingly, even the conclusion splits off. As the innumerable lines immensely detail illustrations curl point wrinkle fold skin cloth hair - so do story lines match - trickle slither gleam corners edges light-dark good-evil in-between both. The tiniest person in most miniscule moment changes forever fate. I recognized among the flood of Undertown refugees "granddaughter, a youngster with stubby waxen plaits, a broad nose, and clutching a wrapped sword to her chest" p378 was "her stubby waxen plaits, her broad nose ... Gilda, a poor gnokgoblin" p105 who Rook rescued from slavery much earlier, but forgot how she got her parcel, and the significance in the sequel (spoiler: win the war). How the authors track the individuals who make up their hundreds of years of history seems like "Find Waldo" puzzle pictures within intertwining Escher images in a Hieronymus Bosch crowd, in other words, indescribably incomparably invaluably unique. I read thousands of books; I buy none; Stewart-Riddell works beg the exception for repeated enjoyment, might not even be better in color; their only fault could be their excess of perfection. These are not big bashful batting cartoon eyes drooling cute; gem point irises gleam with curiosity, innnocence, fear, evil - every emotion possible. This is a nightmare world of oozefish that suck down his whole leg p31, squelching slimy rubble ghoul p46, and dwarf rotsucker "sucking out the putrid soup of a recent victim, now fully ecomposed. The rank stench of death filled the air." p27 Not to be read before bed.Quint trilogy: 4The Curse of the Gloamglozer, 8The Winter Knights, 9Clash of the Sky Galleons,Twig trilogy: 1Beyond the Deepwoods, 2Stormchaser, 3Midnight over SanctaphraxRook trilogy: 5The Last of the Skypirates, 6Vox, 7FreegladerNon-trilogy: 10The Immortals, The Lost Barkscrolls: 4 novellas Cloud Wolf, The Stone Pilot, The Slaughterer's Quest, The Blooding of Rufus Filatinehttp://www.randomhouse.com/kids/edgec...

    "They double-crossed me. All of them. The shrykes, the Guardians, the goblins...But they'll soon be smiling on the other side of their faces." - Paul Stewart, VoxAhh... The Edge Chronicles... the series that shaped my childhood and early teens, and a series that I can rely upon to give me the type of thrilling adventure more adult books lack. The series is split into four trilogies, and upon my first read through, I noticed the middle books in each were my least favourite - they acted as a bridge between the big bang of the beginning and the explosive climax. The muddy middle encapsulated in a full book. And as a child... Vox was my least favourite book. I just... didn't get it. Eleven year old me read a book in which the heroic protagonist, Rook Barkwater, is captured by a weird fat man in a castle, and forced to do things (that could be phrased better, but read it and you'll see). Then suddenly, bloodshed and an apocalypse. 'Okay', I thought, 'onto Freedglader I guess.'And I assumed Vox would always be my least favourite. However, last year, I reread the series. And approaching Vox with an open and mature mind... it quickly became one of my favourite books in the series, if not one of my favourite books ever.Seventeen year old me read a book in which the heroic protagonist, Rook Barkwater, is separated from his skycraft, something that means the world to him, and is thrown into the grips of Vox Verlix as a slave, Vox being the bitter and twisted overthrown leader of Undertown. Rook is forced to obey Vox's every command, unaware of how the world outside of the Palace of Statues is falling apart, with approaching bloodshed and carnage. Political backstabbing and intrigue set in a humid, claustrophobic heat gives the novel a tone unlike any other in the series. After many years of reading, the return to reading Vox was a triumphant one.It is evident to see inspirations drawn from both modern and old-fashioned politics within the novel, coated in s very subtle tone of satire. The whole novel is slow-paced, but not in the sense that it is boring -oh nooooo. The slow pace is a building pace. A tense and exciting atmoshphere thrives throughout. We can see what is going to happen to Rook long before he can, and we are sat screaming at the pages as he stumbles blindly into Vox's plans.The Edge Chronicles is a series that I would recommend to people of ALL ages; live a little! However, don't dismiss Vox as simply an oddball of the series - read deeply, and you'll find a complex and compelling novel that is one of the most underrated in the series.POSITIVES+Tones that amuse both children and adults+A plot that is just complex enough to be compelling+Incredible characters and design+Excellent use of slow-pacing+Quite literally, an explosive climaxNEGATIVES-Easy to dismiss as 'boring' upon the first readRATING:4/5

    This one picks up right where The Last of the Sky Pirates left off. Rook and Magda are Librarian Knights sailing the sky in small sky-crafts designed like animals, studying abroad and then returning to make reports to the Most High Academe, Cowlquape, and the rest of the librarians hiding in the sewers. Xanth has returned to the ranks of the Guardians of the Night as a ruthless interrogator, though he remains conflicted over his previous experiences and friendships formed alongside the Librarian Knights. A whole book dedicated to Vox and the fallout from his dealings, this book did not disappoint. After seizing power from Cowlquape, Vox was taken advantage of by the mercenaries he hired - both the Goblin Armies who were to oversee Undertown, and the vicious bird creatures, the Shrykes, who were to oversee the Mire Road through the Twilight Woods full of destructive whispers - as they took over their respective jurisdictions and made him a prisoner. In addition to these, there are the Guardians of the Night, an intimidating, cruel, superstitious brotherhood that believes a great storm will heal the sick Sanctaphrax rock and hates the true scholars and librarians. The librarians, lovers of true knowledge, believe there are other ways to heal the rock and that a great storm will only do a lot of damage; they have sought refugee in the sewers. In his travels, Rook is taken captive and sold to a dealer in herbs and potions (and poisons) who is also a servant to Vox. His position here proves to be a blessing, as he assists in the escape of the librarians and the destruction of their enemies. Vox, a skilled student of weather, has discovered the timing of a great storm that is rapidly approaching; in exchange for his rescue he tells Cowlquape. Information is fed to both the Goblin armies and the Shrykes, and they converge on the sewers to attack the librarians, only to find that their prey has fled and they are trapped. The librarians think they are safe, but Vox, ever cunning, is not finished. Will Rook and his friends discover the truth and be able to save everyone?As always, there's everything I love about the Edge Chronicles: an easy read, depth and mystery, imaginative settings, memorable characters, action and adventure, moral values, and no romance!

    I was really happy to find that Vox is the second book starring Rook Barkwater. I was quite bummed when he crashed and ruined his flyer, Stormhornet in the first chapter. After all, he spent a lot of time building it while he was being trained to be a librarian knight (see The Last of the Sky Pirates). He then begins a perilous journey trying to get back home to the sewers below Undertown. He does a good job of surviving, but he is no match for the slave traders.Paul Stewart is a master storyteller. He seems to know how to weave just the right amount of adventure, weird creatures, action, and drama together to form the beautiful books in the Edge Chronicles series. This truly is one of my favorite series not only because of the intricate tales, but also because of the wonderful artwork by Chris Riddell. There is something about his drawing style that really speaks to me. Every drawing is a piece of art that the reader should linger over and really study. They are absolutely beautiful.I really like the main character Rook Barkwater. He is a good hero, knowing when to act and when to wait for the right opportunity, although I thought he was crazy when he snuck into Vox's room while Vox was sleeping. And then there is Magda Burlix with her intense needs for high heat and her single-mindedness to feed the baby. She drove me crazy because she didn't care about Rook, or any of the other slaves, just about what was good for her and Vox. I guess Paul Stewart did a good job of making me not like her.The Edge Chronicles is a highly interesting series that I highly recommend. Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell use the perfect amount of imagination and storytelling in these books. They must be good friends to be able to put out these books and have them as good as they are.Overall, Vox is another excellent book in a series that speaks for itself. I always know that I am in for one humdinger of a roller coaster ride when I crack open an Edge Chronicle book for the first time. I cannot wait to see what happens in the next installment, Freeglader. It looks like Rook Barkwater will be having another adventure. That sounds good to me!I rated this book a 9 out of 10.

    Vox Verlix, the supra-genius and one-time usurper of power in New Sanctaphrax, was himself thrown out of New Sanctaphrax. The Guardians of the Night, led by Orbix Xaxis, have seized control of the city atop the crumbling rock, along with the Tower of Night and Sanctaphrax Forest, which Vox worked so hard to design and build. His other magnum opus, the Great Mire Road, was seized by Mother Muleclaw, the queen of those hideous bird creatures called shrykes. Then the goblin general, Tytugg, takes control of Undertown and keeps Vox a prisoner in the old and deteriorating Palace of Statues. There, Vox still lives, and has grown grotesquely obese and dependent on his loyal goblin servants and the sickly waif Amberfuce, who lives in the palace as well. However, he still has his brain, and with it, he's planning something that will destroy Vox's enemies, providing himself with sweet revenge. That the effects of his plan will destroy tens of thousands of innocent lives means nothing to Vox--they're just collateral damage.Rook Barkwater is flying over Undertown in his little sumpwood sky craft, when a mysterious fire ball knocks him out of the sky. His craft is ruined and he finds himself in Scree Town, a former section of Undertown that was covered with the rubble of the crumbling rock, and is now home to various dangerous creatures. After a narrow escape, he ends up in Undertown, where he is captured by slavers and put on auction. He is purchased by Hestera Spikesap, Vox's aged goblin crone servant, who is the queen of poisons. Hestera and the nasty little Amberfuce press Rook into Vox's service, slaving to create the fatso evil genius's secret weapon. Rook discovers what's going on and is determined to put a stop to it, but in order to do that, he must make sure he gets word to Cowlquape Pentephraxis, the librarian leader and Most High Academe, from whom Vox originally seized power.Lots of suspense in this book. Rook is placed under a lot of pressure, because it is up to him to prevent a catastrophe of mind-blowing proportions.

    Vox is simply packed with action, cunning plots, devious schemes, and scary situations. It’s a thrilling ride from beginning to end and makes the reader eager to see what will happen in the third and final (of the Rook trilogy) book.Stewart gets rid of the two main groups of antagonists in this book quite well. As gruesome and violent as their end was, the picture that Riddell drew of their fate was both chilling and spectacular. He makes it quite clear simply by facial expressions and body language that the two groups realize how hopeless their situation is. It’s the most memorable illustration in the book, in my opinion.There’s quite a bit of foreshadowing in this book for the next one, something a reader might not notice if they haven’t read the series before. This sort of foreshadowing is what makes the Rook trilogy superior to the other two, in my opinion, in addition to the fact that it’s faster-paced than the others, as well.The characters are very well-developed, with the exception of the villains, unfortunately. Vox is perhaps the most nuanced, but even he is a bit flat.Speaking of Vox Verlix: Evil mastermind or puppet? The book is called Vox, but Vox’s role in this book is surprisingly disappointing. He’s a genius, sure, but I don’t know if I would call him a villain or even a character worth naming the book after. There is that one scary threat, but the way it’s carried out and eventually made reality isn’t even due to Vox.The one thing I’ve noticed about the Rook trilogy is that, unfortunately, all three books do tend to drag a bit in the middle. It’s worse in Sky Pirates, but it can get a bit slow in this book.Overall, Vox continues the fast-paced action that was seen in The Last of the Sky Pirates, which bodes well for the last book in the Rook trilogy. While lacking a bit in places, it is still a worthwhile read and one of the best in the series.

    The edge chronicles book six Vox In this book life continues on the edge. Rook is now a librarian knight! But when he gets captured while trying to get to the great storm chamber library he’s sold as a slave to Vox Verlix and has his mind swept and had all of his memories cast away. Or so they thought! Out of nowhere his memories came back to him. But he still had to act like a mindless slave. Until at night on his fourth day he broke into Vox’s chamber and saved his life from an assassin while the old high academe came to have a meeting with Vox to discuss on how they were supposed to escape the great black maelstrom[a gigantic storm:] and transport the great library and all of the librarians and undertowners and ghosts of screetown to the free glades while having the goblin army and shryke[evil bird people:]army meet in the ex-great library and murder each other therefore eliminating at least one of the three sides apposing them! But the night of the big event rook realizes during his time as Vox’s slave he had fed the so called “baby” which is a primitive missile filled with phraxdust and blood oak powder! BOOM!!!! With all this Vox’s missile would trigger the great storm and destroy about one third of the edge! So Rook goes to the palace of statues throws a statue head at a servant and [phraxdust goes BOOM! From the smallest amount of moisture.:] Accidently has a drop of sweat fall in the funnel setting off the rocket and triggering the maelstrom! Oh no now everyone is escorted by the ghosts of scree town to the mire road and start there voyage to the free glades! I would have to say the theme is that even if you’re the little guy you can still win if you’re smart. This is one of the better books in the series!

    Rook’s adventures continue in this exciting installment of the Edge Chronicles. All of his skills of survival are put to the test as he navigates the dangerous predators of Screetown, swims stagnant rivers and tries to keep his wits and memories while pretending to be a witless slave.The story is absorbing from start to finish with nary a dull passage anywhere. There’s quite a bit of exposition as the book skips back and forth in time while dealing with the ambitious, bright, betrayed and betraying Vox Verlix. I rather liked learning about Vox’s keenly inventive mind and felt a genuine regret that his talents had been so perverted by greed and ambition. The reader realizes the limits of his skullduggery as the book outlines how his supposed allies were quick to turn on him, leaving him a virtual prisoner and a mere figurehead to their own schemes.This book ratchets the tension considerably as matters come to a boil, with a massive storm, two powerful armies and the lives of fugitives hanging in the balance. As always, the text is ably supplemented by Mr. Riddell’s detailed drawings of the various denizens, objects, clothing, artwork, etc., that comprises Mr. Stewart’s imaginary world.

    If you recall back when I started reading this series, Book 4 suddenly left the timeline, and went back in time to the history of the previous main character's father, leaving me feeling lost, though eventually I caught on to what had happened. Picking up Vox gave me much the same feeling, only I was even more sure I had missed something, and was wondering why they had suddenly begun to write such a disjointed series. Then I checked my own backlog and realized this time it was me--I never remembered to read Book 5 and therefore I -did- miss something. However. I still followed along with Vox easily enough, even though I missed the backstory because I could tell it had been good.As with all tales from the Edge, this one lacks nothing in terms of imagination, suspense, and an abundance of unique characters, though by now some of the creature of this world are becoming familiar. And despite knowing I had missed something along the way, I blazed through this installment quickly, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I do however look forward to going back to Book 5 to fill in the gaps, and am hoping some of the libraries will soon pick up books 7 and 8.

    I enjoyed this book about as much as all of the prior books in the series, but it seemed as if there was no ending to the story. I suppose most of the plotlines were (at least somewhat) resolved, but nothing felt conclusive. Especially perplexing was the lack of details on what happened with the title character... I read the section dealing with his plotline twice, and was still somewhat confused, since it felt that there were large chunks of information simply missing from the story.The other thing that stood out to me about this book is that it seems quite a bit more gruesome and bloody than the previous books in the series. There has always been danger and death in the Deepwoods, but this book goes into quite a bit of detail about beatings, murders and maulings all through the text. It doesn't seem quite so lighthearted, and I would be a bit more hesitant about recommending this to younger readers than I would the other books in the series.

    The weather is oppressive; the mood, dark--again. In this tale from the Deepwoods, the reader is reunited with some familiar characters: Rook Barkwater, Felix, Magda and Xanth. And Vox Verlix, the weather expert, has wrested the power form Cowlquape Pentephraxis and placed himself in command--only to be double-crossed by those whom he used to gain power. Now, he is a virtual prisoner inthe Palace of Statues. The enmity between the Guardians and the librarian knights continues, but that is not the only conflict. Those who've double-crossed Vox are also at odds with each other for power: Orbix Xaxis, Mother Muleclaw and the Shrykes, and General Tytugg and the goblins. A storm is brewing and no one will be left untouched by its force.

    The book Vox by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell, is about a boy named Rook Barkwater. He is an Under-Librarian/Librarian Knight of the great Storm Chamber Library in the sewers of Undertown. During the story, Rook was shot out of the sky by a massive fire ball and ended up becoming a slave of Vox Verlix (the very person who shot him down). While he was a slave he tried to foil Vox’s plan to destroy Undertown. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure or fiction novels. The ending was awesome because there weren’t very many details about what actually happened to the Sanctaphrax Rock or if Undertown survived. I couldn't stop turning the pages because every page added a new level of intensity to the book. I liked this book so much I going to check out the next one tomorrow.

  • Duane
    2019-01-15 15:28

    I've always enjoyed Paul Stewart's work, but I don't think this book is his best work. We're again in Rook's world as the Undertowners, Guarians of Knight, Shrykes, and Goblins find themselves meeting in a final climax for survival in Undertown and the Edge. It does have a few interesting characters, but I just couldn't fall the storyline as well as his past books. We do find the character Vox back in the storyline, but not in the demanding role I figured he would be in. If you've read the series, you probably should read this book to keep up in the details, but I wouldn't dwell on it for very long.

    I really liked this book because I also read the Twig saga where twig was the main character and letting Rook the main character in this book meet him was really cool. Plus the edge chronicles are all connected because Quint the main character in the book 4,8,9 of the edge chronicles is the father of Twig who's the main character in books 1,2,3 of the edge chronicles who is the grandfather of Rook who's the main character of books 5,6,7.

    These books are absolutely mind-blowing. I am constantly surprised by the richness and depth I am finding in this so-called "children's book." This book can definitely be read by anybody, and you'll probably appreciate it more the older you are. It's hard to tell the difference between each book; each one is crafted with superb writing and illustrations that one can almost forget the story.

    3.5 stars. This series is great with all the cool pictures throughout the story and fast-paced nature. One problem I had with this book however was that there really wasn't any hero. Rook literally didn't do anything for himself, and only kept going out of extreme luck and the sacrifices of others. It just didn't sit as well as the other books in this series.

    It may not be fair to review a book I didn't finish reading but I just couldn't get into this book. I was able to switch characters after the first few of the Edge series but then having the whole time line switched was just too much. I may try again at another time but it was just too disjointed for me to keep reading.

    *REVIEWED FOR PUBLISHER*Scurrilous schemes abound in the second book in the Rook Trilogy, as Vox Verlix, Most High Academe, hatching a cunning plan that could destroy New Sanctaphrax and Undertown, and it’s up to Rook and the Librarian Knights to foil his evil plans… if they can. This is a striking sequel with an explosive plot that is guaranteed to entertain!

  • Olivia
    2018-12-27 13:12

    I thought the ending with Vox was unnecessary and had no place in the context of the entire book. I enjoyed Xanth's part, and look forward to the part he'll play in the future. I felt it the entire scheme was somewhat far-fetched, and too tied up and perfect, especially when Rook went to convince the shryke sisters. Overall, it wasn't one of my favorite in the series.

    This one was a continuation of book 5. One part creepy, one part gruesome, one part adventurous, all parts entertaining. By the end of the book, the winds had changed again and I can sense something huge coming in book 7. Now if you'll excuse me, I have some more reading to do!
