The thrilling prequel to the bestselling Land of Elyon trilogy

Format: 6 CDs, Unabridged

From a humble and unexplained childhood in a very strange orphanage to a series of fearless escapes to a quest full of riddles and exploration, Thomas and Roland find that their identity--and the mysterious tattoos on their knees--are linked to a much greater history than they ever would have guessed. One brother, Thomas, is destined for adventure on land, while the other brother, Roland, is destined for adventure on sea. But before this happens, they must journey into the mist...and find the truth about both their past and their future.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Ron McLarty can do no wrong as he spins this exciting, sometimes harrowing, story of two young brothers…Each character is brought to life with a unique voice, and McLarty is particularly accomplished at capturing the female characters. He sends a chill down one’s spine whenever Madame Vickers arrives on the scene. The production itself is not burdened by music or other distractions. Its simplicity allows one to be swept up in the action as McLarty works his magic.”

    AudioFile

  • “The nonstop action of the plot, which moves from crisis to crisis and ends on a classic Carman cliffhanger…a perfect setup for subsequent books. This can stand on its own merits but will be a surefire winner wherever the original series is popular.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Narrator Ron McLarty’s skillful, well-paced reading adds excitement, suspense, and thoughtful introspection when needed. He successfully conveys the personalities and emotions of the brothers…A fine stand-alone, action-packed fantasy.”

    School Library Journal

    " Great book and series! Definite READ!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kara | 2/13/2014

    " A cute little book, with a cute little story line. Definitely for a much younger audience. If I were 13 and a boy, I probably would have loved the book. So will I finish the series? Only if I decide that I need to know the end of the story, we will see. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Katie | 2/6/2014

    " ALL OF THESE BOOKS ARE SUCH A BORE IDK WHY I READ THE WHOLE SERTIES "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Breann | 2/1/2014

    " It is really good!!!! (so far!!!!) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Corey | 1/31/2014

    " This book is like a story in a story. Once again Alexa is with her friends on a boat when she finds a journal of the captain's. But the journal is the life of him Roland Warvold and his brother Thomas Warvold. It's pretty much the wild adventures they had when they were kids.This is a book for people who like more adventure and longer chapters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tamsyn | 1/29/2014

    " The prequel... It had lot's of interesting backround information and I really liked it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 1/25/2014

    " this book wasnt really part of the series since it takes place before she is really born "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stefanie | 1/20/2014

    " I read this book first, when apparently I was supposed to read it last. But I'm glad I did because I never would have gotten to it otherwise. This book had a very original storyline and I very much enjoyed it. It is the most well-written of his books, I believe, since I went back and tried to read the Land of Elyon books in the "right" order and couldn't drag myself through them. Carman's writing ability improved through the series, so if I were you I would just read this one and not worry about the others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alyssa Wayt | 1/19/2014

    " I did not expect this book to take me so long. But I have had a ton of homework, and no time to read. But I have finally finished it, and I loved it. This one is my favorite. It is about Roland and Thomas Warvold. It answered a lot of my questions, and also left a semi-maddening cliffhanger... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori Beecher | 1/19/2014

    " Interesting new idea for a youth book. I liked but not loved it. Probably give it a 3.5 stars if that was available. Kids really seem to like it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirsten | 12/27/2013

    " It was kinda different from the others but it was still really good "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginger | 12/25/2013

    " This book is actually written for elementary age children, but I wanted to read it before the boys to make sure it was okay... I usually skim these books, but the chapter I started on was captivating, so I started at the beginning and read the whole thing in one day... a quick easy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aly | 12/21/2013

    " It was shorter than I expected and ended abruptly. The author needs to write the next one... I wanted more action too. It was pretty good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sojin | 7/10/2012

    " This book in the series is my favorite, although, it is hard to understand the format at first because the author keeps jumping around from telling a story about something that happened in the past, and what is happening then. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Taylor | 6/7/2012

    " Least favorite of this series but you have to read it to understand the last book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cici | 5/18/2012

    " Not bad! Author does have a sense of story and drama. I could see it becoming a movie. I'll be checking out the rest of the series. I may even buy them... I like the size and artwork, as well as the writing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Devin | 8/30/2011

    " I didn't read the first or the third one and this book really struggles to stand on it's own. But it was a cool tale and I'm sure if I read the other books it would make more sense. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 M & N | 8/21/2011

    " It was nice to read the history of how all the books began. It was a bit like a sequel and a prequel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dan | 8/17/2011

    " This is by far the best book in the series so far. Mr. Carman has introduced a new plot device to resolve the continuity/time line problems he introduced so far. He doesn't quite solve them completely, and there are still discontinuities and plot holes, but his writing style is definitely improving. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lacey Lane | 7/19/2011

    " Great story. I love how the story of Thomas and Roland from the past was woven into the story of Alexa in the present. I don't think I've ever read a story that happened to be a prequel while at the same time moving the present story forward. Can't wait to read the last book and see how it all ends. "
