Reviews

Gr 6-9-Atherton was once a place of order and structure, with its people divided by geography and social class. Edgar, an orphan boy from Tabletop, has discovered that Atherton is a man-made satellite created as a refuge from a dying Earth, predestined to change and evolve. At the Highlands, the uppermost tier, are the ruling class who control the water supply, while the middle tier villagers provide the food. At the lowest level live frightening creatures. After severe seismic shifts erase the boundaries between the sections of this shared world, the residents are forced to become one people as their world is altered and chaos threatens to overtake them. Determined that the planet and its people survive, Edgar's quest leads him to incredible discoveries about his relationship to the planet and to its creator that makes for an exciting, introspective journey. Jonathan Davis's smooth and unhurried narration draws listeners into Patrick Carman's science fiction novel (Little, Brown, 2008), the sequel to House of Power (Little, Brown, 2007). He conveys the heroism, selflessness, courage, and profound sadness that are characteristics of the various main characters. This complex and entertaining story will captivate a wide audience of listeners, but will be most appreciated by those who have read the previous title.-Margaret Auguste, Franklin Middle School, Somerset, NJ Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
