A review of the book the valley of thorns by patrick carman

January 1, Kogiopsis Anddddddd I'm done! January 1, Samantha Boyette I've been keeping up with this series as the books become available to listen to through the library.

I, for one, was baffled. Otherwise, the only real problem the people have with the walls is that it blocks their view of the pretty mountains and forests. As they learn the mysteries of the stone pillars they also must fight to banish the great evil that will not leave them alone.

There, they explore the secrets of each pillar and acquainted a noble person from the path of yesterday. I love the story. It turns out Abaddon got loose and followed them there, and now Alexa has to save the Five Stone Pillars before he completely destroys them.

She's kind of who I want to be. When a mysterious conversation and an unfortunate accident put Alexa within reach of a way outside the wall, she must decide--heed the warnings of her elders, or satisfy her curiosity and unravel the mysteries of Elyon.

Tremor (2014)

Clara and Wade Quinn, who have joined forces with Hotspur Chance, the most wanted man in the world. There's still something downright nonsensical about the worldbuilding of this series. She back the bad news.

And they're going to spend the rest of their days on the Stargazer adventuring, aw. Alexa is curious about what lies beyond the massive ramparts that surround the city and the walled roads that link Bridewell to nearby towns; soon after town leader Thomas Warvold passes away, Alexa finds herself outside the walls, acquires a stone with remarkable powers, and discovers that she's meant to stop a potential war from occurring.

The worst part of all this is that I still really kinda liked the book. She is given the last Jocasta, and finds out more about who people in her past were.

I wish the author had spent more time with an editor. I love the author's creativity to visualize the beyond-imagination setting and passion to write such a masterpiece.

The La Anddddddd I'm done! And understanding it's power is only the first step. What she finds is a power that allows her to speak to the animals of the woods and a deadly plot by outsiders to destroy her beloved Bridewell.

In the end, the book as a whole is a disappointment, falling flat in most aspects of good fantasy--strong world creation, compelling plot, vivid characterization, imaginative spark.

I had no idea until I read the introduction to this, the fourth and final book and it spoke of a book called "Into the Mist" which was a Precursor to the series. On her annual summer trips to Bridewell with her father, the mayor of Lathbury, Alexa Daley spends much of her time dreaming of escape.

The ending really impacted me and made me realize that if the author of a fiction book could write such a happy ending, surely the Author of Life has an Ending even MORE happy than this one waiting for His children. January 1, Bailey I've always loved the Land of Elyon books, because they are kind of subtle in the beginning, as Alexa's adventure is just beginning, and then there is a very exciting and tense part where it gets you on the edge of your seat and wondering, "What's going to happen next?

Overall, I still don't think this series is She uses her friends that she gets on her way of her journey including Yipes, Murphy, Oddessa, Jhon, and lastly the giant Armon. In other words, I love this book very much. She is the most lovable heroine in anything I have every read.

I liked the library where Alexa spends much of her time and the cold feeling you get when you realize that your adorable pets are not what they seem. Stargazer is the last of the five books and it always blows me away. Stargazer is the one and only best fiction book ever.

Every year it's the same. All in all it was a decent, necessary finish to the series. And I didn't find it slow in the least unlike some people.

Told from the perspective of its smart, brave, and adventurous heroine, The Dark Hills Divide invites readers on a spectacular and mysterious quest that will appeal to boys, girls, and fans of both fiction and fantasy. What could it be?? At first, Jacob is hesitant to use the power, unsure of its implications.

Alexa has to discover the secrets of each of the pillars to save the co Alexa and her friends journey with Thomas Worvald to the Five Pillars, an isolated community where the geography has made the residents take to new forms of transport, farming, and weaponry.
