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.

About the Author:

Patrick Carman's previous books in the Land of Elyon series (The Dark Hills Divide, Beyond the Valley of Thorns, and The Tenth City) have all been New York Times bestsellers. He is also the Creative Director of pcstudio, a packager and pioneer of the multimedia "vBook" (video+book), a format launched in 2009 with Skeleton Creek. He recently authored the fifth title in Rick Riordan's 39 Clues series, The Black Circle.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5–8—In this final installment in this dystopian trilogy, Edgar scales Atherton's underbelly to reach its long-forgotten docking station. Boarding a mysterious vessel, he travels to the polluted Dark Planet's "Station Seven" and its "Silo." Run by hardened Commander Judix and two cruel taskmasters, the Silo's labor force is made up of children under the age of 12, who produce food for the planet's sickly inhabitants. Edgar escapes with four Silo workers and a crucial Silo powder block. On Dr. Harding's greatest creation, Atherton, Edgar reunites with Isabel and Samuel, who've once again adventured inside their world doing their part to help. Three plotlines, facilitated by Dr. Harding's convoluted planning, converge to one final revelation and the fruition of his ultimate goal—cleansing Earth. This is primarily action-driven sci-fi with unique settings populated by creative creatures. Familiar and new characters (including one very cool dragon) maintain readers' interest (none more so than the deceased Dr. Harding, whose childhood home and firebug holograms reveal a more brilliant, kinder man pre-madness). 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, but reading the books in order is recommended. Pencil illustrations, many appearing like full-page notes, better explain Atherton and Dark Planet phenomena.—Danielle Serra, Cliffside Park Public Library, NJ END
