Overview

The Dark Planet (Atherton Series #3) by Patrick Carman

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.

I read all of the books in the Atherton series, but this one was my favorite out of the three. It had plenty of action, ideas that sent my imagination run wild, and a wonderful ending. This is a great book and I highly recomend it.

Life in Atherton has changed and its people have started over. Edgar's encounter with his maker, Dr. Harding, has left questions that can only be answered by leaving the only home he has ever known. Edgar's journey takes him to the Dark Planet; a sick and dying world filled with deadly creatures and air that fills the lungs with sickness. Edgar has come in search of information about his beginnings, but what he finds is so much more. He's a part of Dr. Harding's plan to save the Dark Planet and its inhabitants. If only Edgar can survive the harshness of the Dark Planet and its people long enough to fulfill his destiny. I loved Carman's LAND OF ELYON series and have enjoyed the ATHERTON series just as much, and maybe more. The characters and worlds of ATHERTON are thrilling and full of imagination and wonder. Carman has a magnificent way of unfolding a world and characters on the page that takes my breath away. Once I start reading, I can't stop until I reach the end. Even then I wish it could go on. I enjoyed being immersed in the world and lives of the characters in ATHERTON, and THE DARK PLANET reached a satisfying end full of new beginnings.

I have been a great fan of Patrick Carman ever since I picked up The Dark Hills Divide so long ago. I have since read every book he's written, and I must say he never fails to excite. His ability to create new worlds and make them real is phenomenal, as is his ability to keep the reader engrossed throughout the course of the novel. The Dark Planet was no exception. Earth as a post-apocalyptic world was chilling. I read late into the night trying to finish just one more chapter to see what would happen next. I am eagerly awaiting Patrick's next book, whatever it may be. He's an author to watch!
