In the dazzling conclusion to the epic story of Atherton, Patrick Carman takes readers on the most rewarding journey of all, to the perilous realm of the dark planet: Earth.

When Edgar discovers a way to leave the mysterious satellite world of Atherton, he couldn’t have imagined the gloom that awaited him on the dark planet, where the oceans are toxic, the forests are full of mutant monsters, and children toil in darkness, controlled by ruthless maniacs. Max Harding, an orphan of the Silo, the maker of Atherton, and the last hope of a dying world, left this place behind, and now Edgar is determined to complete the mad scientist’s spectacular plan, revealing Atherton’s true purpose.

Edgar’s quest to discover Earth’s dark secret leads to an out of this world adventure in the final book of the Atherton trilogy.

Quotes & Awards

  • “In this final installment in this dystopian trilogy, Edgar scales Atherton’s underbelly to reach its long-forgotten docking station…Once again, Carman’s introduction provides background information and character biographies for readers unfamiliar with the series. He successfully incorporates similar information throughout the novel.”

    " I loved the first Atherton book. The second was also very good. This one, though well-written as usual, failed to capture my interest. Perhaps it was because of the "green team" that showed up later in the book, Aggie in particular - the introduction of a romantic interest for Edgar did not come out of nowhere, but it was rather abrupt. Actually, Aggie in particular ruined parts of the book: strong female characters are good, but we already had one, and a much more likeable one, in Isabel. The ending was so idealistic that it nearly sickened me (though that is due to personal preference) and overall the book was a mediocre end to an otherwise stellar series. "

    " omg these were my harry potter, along with carman's land of elyon series. wonderful, whimsical, imaginative books, this one being the epic conclusion every 9-12 adventure series should have. i recommend in most to people of those age because really there's nothing like reading books like these at that age for the first time, and then growing up rereading (and reliving) that experience over and over again. nothing to say except the cliche thank you for my childhood, i suppose.

    " Although I wasn't terribly moved to read this final book in the trilogy, it turned out to be the most compelling of the series. The conecption of the story is revealed, and it was as unexpected by me as by the main character. I really enjoyed this conclusion to the Atherton series! "
