The third book and final chapter in an epic fantasy sequence from New York Times bestselling author Patrick Carman

FORMAT: 6 CDs, Unagridged
NARRATOR: Jonathan Davis

After journeying to an unfamiliar land where air is nearly unbreathable and light stings like shards of glass, Edgar must navigate the deadly forests--full of creatures far more frightening than anything he has seen on Atherton--and join the child workforce of Silo #7, the site where Dr. Harding (the mad maker of Atherton) was raised. In the final thrilling chapter of this epic triology, we meet an engaging new cast of characters and Dr. Harding's ultimate plan comes together in an incredibly satisfying conclusion.

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! "
