Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Alexa thought her troubles were over when she defeated the man who had threatened to bring down Bridewell from within. But now that the walls around her land have fallen, a new, unexpected threat has risen from outside. Suddenly, Alexa is involved in a battle much, much larger than her own life...a battle in which she is destined to play a key role. In order to help good defeat evil, Alexa and her friends must venture farther than they've ever gone before — confronting giants, bats, ravenous dogs, and a particularly ghoulish mastermind in order to restore peace.

Review:

"[A] trip with Alexa Daley through the Valley of Thorns is well worth the effort." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

The intrigue of Book One, The Dark Hills Divide, rises to a new level. A new, unexpected threat forces Alexa to confront giants, bats, ravenous dogs, and a particularly ghoulish mastermind in order to restore peace.

About the Author

The father of two young daughters, author Patrick Carman had already built four successful businesses from the ground up before adding "novelist" to his resume. In fact, it wasn't until he began trading places once a week with his wife, so she could have a night out, and he took over reading to their daughters, that Carman began thinking about writing a novel. A Northwest native, he grew up in Salem, Oregon, and graduated from Willamette University with a degree in economics. Carman then spent a decade living in Portland, where he founded and ran his own advertising agency. After selling it in 1998, he created a series of popular board games, and founded and built MyWebPal.com into the third-largest provider of online newspaper publishing in the U.S. He also launched a fourth new business, Amped Radio (www.ampedradio.com), during the same time period that he was writing The Dark Hills Divide. Patrick Carman lives in Washington with his wife, Karen, and daughters, Reese and Sierra.
