About the Author

Patrick Carman is the bestselling author of numerous series for young readers, including The Land of Elyon, Elliot’s Park, Skeleton Creek, Atherton, Trackers, Dark Eden, and 3:15. He got his start as a storyteller weaving bedtime tales for his two daughters. He lives in Walla Walla, Washington, with his family.

More About the Author

I have been a lifelong writer and storyteller. Salem, Oregon is where I spent my formative years and I graduated from Willamette University. After college, I spent a decade living in Portland, Oregon where I worked in advertising, game design, and technology.

I've written young adult and children's books for Scholastic, Little Brown Books For Young Readers and Katherine Tegen Books/ HarperCollins Publishers.

I've been fortunate enough to have had some bestselling series work: The Land of Elyon, Atherton, Elliot's Park, 39 Clues, and Skeleton Creek. Here's a fun note...the books have been translated into approximately two dozen languages. Currently I'm developing a few new-media projects. Check out DARK EDEN to experience this type of cross-platform project.

When I'm not writing or creating a story, I spend my free time supporting literacy campaigns and community organizations, fly fishing, playing basketball and tennis, doing crosswords, watching movies, dabbling in video games, reading (lots), and (more than anything else) spending time with my wife and two daughters.

Patrick Carman has crafted a wonderfully charming account of a girl with a spirit that can't be contained within the walls of Bridewell. Young Alexa Daley embodies that wish which consumes children and adults alike - the wish to leave behind the dreary confines of everyday life and discover something wonderous and alive, brimming with adventure and excitement. That is exactly what Carman gives his readers; the chance to escape into the pages, and to flee the restraints of this world, and to travel with Alexa to solve the mysteries of the world.

Wow... we have been big fans of Patrick Carman from the beginning of this trilogy and have enjoyed every book to follow! While my daughter, when we began this series, was definitely old enough to read on her own - we had just finished reading the Narnia series together and wanted to continue our family reading time with a similar style of writing! These books did not disappoint! In the age of Harry Potter popularity - this series features a 12 year old heroine that was a great character to relate to and look up to for our daughter. The other characters in the book are lovable and humorous and the books offer many twists and turns and suspence - even some tear jerker moments and laugh out loud scenes as well! I highly recommend this series for any family... your kids will love them, but don't miss out on them yourself! They will soon be 'classics' in their own right!

Format: Paperback
I loved the first three books of this series! They are perfect for children as well as teens. They have action and comedy as well as tragedy, but I love that the tragedies are not so intense as to make it difficult to read with younger kids. It is a tail that will hold your attention every step of the way. I was extremely satisfied with the ending of The Tenth City and don't particularly like any of the books following it. It felt as though they were dragging out the story, but the first three are phenomenal! Enjoy your reading!

Most excellent service--most excellent service--most excellent service--one must truly wonder how Amazon counts words---because when one is attempting to write a review--or say something, it says you must have twenty words--or you can list nothing--one does wonder about some or the procedures? Now they require a headline and I have not idea what a headline is?
