Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Truly an amazing storyteller, Patrick Carman's imagination runs full steam, never threatening to quit or run dry. " - Kidsreads.com
Children's Literature - Jean Boreen
This newest addition to "The Land of Elyon" series finds main character Alexa Daley traveling with her uncle Roland Warvold and her friend Yipes to the mysterious Five Stone Pillars. Roland is killed by an evil sea being that turns out to be Abaddon, Alexa's longtime nemesis. Alexa is rescued by Matilda and introduced to the citizens of the Pillars community. Alexa quickly learns that as Roland's niece, she is technically a princess there and, by default, their leader. They certainly need a leader, as Abaddon batters at the Pillars—literally and metaphorically—in an attempt to get to Alexa and to destroy both the girl and the community. As Alexa works on her plan, she happens across Sir Alistair Wakefield. The Five Stone Pillars' creator, he has long been thought dead by everyone in both Elyon and the Stone Pillar community. With his help and wisdom, Alexa and company devise a plan for bringing down Abaddon and helping those citizens who want to return to their homes find a way to do so. This series continues to be a solid upper elementary, middle school read that hooks younger readers with its strong adventure sequences and engaging characters. Reviewer: Jean Boreen, Ph.D.
VOYA - Ann Welton
When last seen at the end of The Tenth City (Scholastic, 2006/VOYA October 2006), Alexa Daley defeated the evil Abadon and sailed with her uncle, Roland Warvold, to a strange place called the Five Stone Pillars. Unbeknownst to Alexa, her boon friend Yipes, and her uncle, Abadon has taken the form of a sea monster and follows their boat, looking for new lands to corrupt. As the boat arrives, Abadon strikes, killing Roland, but Alexa and Yipes—saved by the inhabitants of the stone pillars—find themselves in a place that is both strange and charming. When it becomes clear that Abadon is intent upon toppling one of the pillars in an attempt at conquest, Alexa and Yipes take it upon themselves to save both the people and the place. Carman writes a compelling story, marred only by a lack of characterization, but it is just a bit flat. Yipes, for example, remains a cardboard cutout, a bit reminiscent of Yosemite Sam and with all the nuance. Alexa has never been as fully fleshed out as she was in the first book of The Land of Elyon series, but all this will matter little to fans who have followed the previous four books. Whatever his deficits in characterization, Carman weaves a solid story with a strong sense of place and, invariably, a satisfying ending; this one ties all the loose ends together. It is a must-purchase for middle school libraries with either a following or a need for introductory fantasy. Reviewer: Ann Welton

    Another Hit from Patrick Carman

    This is the perfect follow-up to the original 'Land of Elyon trilogy' and it's prequel, 'Into the Mist'. In Stargazer so many questions that were left hanging in the other books are answered, , and the answers leave the reader breathless. I would reccommend this book to anyone who has read his other hit series.

    Just the end to a huge adventure...

    Stargazer is an interesting story. Alexa, the main character, finds herself in another adventure, this time she is somewhat alone. Without the guidance of some that were beside her for so long, Alexa waste no time planning ways to defeat the enemy. While discovering hidden secrets, Alexa encounters an extremely unexpected secret that was surprisingly kept from herself all this time. With the evil they thought they destroyed right on her tracks, Alexa does the best she can to save everyone and become the woman she was destined to be.
