Patrick Carman usually spends his time in Walla Walla, Washington. But in the spring of 2005 he’s taking his wife and two daughters on the road, traveling across the country on a whirlwind tour in support of his dazzling first novel, The Dark Hills Divide.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-6–In this final volume in the series, the nasty overlord, Grindall, and his band of ogres have kidnapped Alexa's miniature friend, Yipes. Now Alexa is traveling over the seas with her motley crew of animal, giant, and human companions to save him. She makes some daring escapes, placates some wild creatures, and must defeat Grindall and his supernatural master, the fallen Abaddon. At the end, she and her companion get a glimpse of the heavenly Tenth City wherein lies the good creator, Elyon. The book draws more heavily on Christian imagery and religion than the previous titles and has some distinct similarities to C. S. Lewis's Narnia tales, especially at the end. Unlike the first two books, this one does not stand alone. Purchase where the series has proven popular.–Elizabeth Bird, New York Public Library
