Alexa thought her troubles were over when she defeated the man who had threatened to bring down Bridewell from within. But now that the walls around her land have fallen, a new, unexpected threat has risen from outside. Suddenly, Alexa is involved in a battle much, much larger than her own life . . . a battle in which she is destined to play a key role. In order to help good defeat evil, Alexa and her friends must venture farther than they've ever gone before - confronting giants, bats, ravenous dogs, and a particularly ghoulish mastermind in order to bring back peace.

    " 2009 #30: This is the second book in The Land of Elyon series. Unlike the first book, The Dark Hills Divide, this one didn't fit as a story on its own. Beyond The Valley Of Thorns just continues straight into The Tenth City, the third book in the series. Like many movie trilogies, I found this second part in the series to be less satisfying than the other parts. "

    " yeah, u know what i was gonna say "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danielle | 1/24/2014

    " This book (and trilogy) is great for young adult fiction! I loved every bit! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashpash | 12/28/2013

    " This book was very adventurouse and interesting! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elevetha Houre | 12/26/2013

    " 2 1\2 stars. Pretty boring. It was all right but certainly not anything special. What is up with Alexa being chosen by Elyon since the very beginning as the person to save everyone? Her destiny and all that. More annoying than epic in my opinion. I ended up buying this and the first one at Half Price Books for $1 each. So that was a good price but I'm not sure I would have spent much more on this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maddie | 12/22/2013

    " In this book I learned that sometimes you have to over come your fears and be strong. I learned this when Alexa was afraid to go in the dark tower but she did it anyways to save her friends. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lily | 12/18/2013

    " I thought this book was really good and was so happy to hear there was a sequel! Love everything about these books! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nandi | 12/17/2013

    " Thought it was as cute as the first book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 12/17/2013

    " I enjoyed this book even more than the first in the series. The story felt like it had more depth than the first one and was faster paced. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Holly | 12/13/2013

    " I always feel so betrayed when a children's fantasy series turns out to be Christian fiction. The allegory was mild in the first one, but gets stronger here. I don't know if I'll finish the series or not. Just like Narnia, I don't know how much of it I can stand. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy | 12/12/2013

    " Like it better than the first one in the series. Not nearly as predictable and a nice cliff hanger ending. I was excited when the library had #3 on the shelf and I didn't have to wait to get it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul | 11/18/2013

    " This one scored higher than most due to its in between factor, although it does have some main, key points. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alyssa | 10/4/2013

    " I read this several years ago and alas, I don't really remember much of it. I didn't leave a huge impression on me but I did really like it at the time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gwen | 9/29/2013

    " this has the same review of the dark hills divide "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Zarakoda | 9/26/2013

    " I know, I'm sorry I am giving this a bad rating, but it was not as good as the other one, and I never really got too into the book. It just seemed very stale and basic the entire time, with little delving into twists of plot or anything. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 8/13/2013

    " sadly i read this one before the first so it didn't make as much sense but after reading the first one it was good "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 7/25/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Corey | 3/9/2012

    " This book is for anyone who wants a adventure, and a little thrilling in between. It's Alexa again but she got mixed up with a giant and a talking wolf. But this time she is trying to save a really old friend who acted like he was dead. "

    " Not as good as a story as the first one in the series, but the it moved along quite nicely and it is very enjoyable for being so short in length. I plan on reading the entire series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 4/13/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Qing | 1/14/2011

    " The writing is still quite stilted and dialogue seems forced in places.

    Plot/Concept is interesting enough to keep me going, though I wonder if Elyon is like Aslan. "
