    One thought on “The Tenth City

    1. Shantelle on said:

      The Tenth City was a nice third book to THE LAND OF ELYON series I didn t love it as much as the first book, but it was better than Beyond the Valley of Thorns, Book Two Adventure awaits Mysteries and secrets abound It was exciting and scary at times to journey with Alexa and her group of unlikely friends as they face one danger and trial after the next Murphy, of course, is great grins He s a favorite character I also have grown to like the giant a lot I couldn t believe the betrayal But of cou [...]

    2. Kogiopsis on said:

      URGHHHHHH.I still feel kinda guilty coming back to these books and disliking them this strongly, since it really was something I loved as a kid but let s not mince words, okay They re just not good Forget the religious aspects actually, we ll come back to that the writing is bad The pacing is bad the first person narrator routinely withholds information from the reader there s so much telling instead of showing that it pains me the characters have very little in the way of personality and pretty [...]

      The Tenth City by Patrick Carman Do you you like adventures If you do, then you should read the fiction book The Tenth City It is about a young girl named Alexa and her animal and human friends Together they work as a team to protect each other while they are trying to save their other friend, Yipes This book is pretty much the best adventure book I have ever read This book is a mixture of reality and fantasy, which I really like It has action and it teaches you lessons about life like not to gi [...]

    5. Melumebelle on said:

      I didn t like this book as much as the others While I should have seen where this was going a long time ago, I was a little let down that it has one of those this isn t being sold as a religious book but there are just enough hints to bash you over the head with the idea of religion and by that I mean Christianity type of plots, which was increasingly evident in the last book in the series at least I believe it is, perhaps there are However I did grow to love Alexa, Murphy and Warvold even thou [...]

    6. Jennifer Hicklin on said:

      By far one of the most satisfying ending to a series in the history of literature I was actually hysterical when the book ended, it was written so well After starting this series whenever I was barely ten, I m so glad to have these books in my life.Actually, I m fascinated how Carman used Christian influences I m particularly interested in his next book where there lives a nation supported my the legendary Five Pillars While I don t usually enjoy religious tangents, Carman writes in a respectful [...]

    7. Annika on said:

      OMG THIS BOOK I definitely loved it then the other two i loved the adventure and the mystery behind it and that plot twist at the end justgod I actually cried at the end omg i just cant but this book is amazing and the ending was definitely satisfying I m going to take a break from reading the land of elyon books for a little bit, because there are just two left a prequel book 4 called into the mist and then book 4 stargazer definitely a satisfying end tho3 favorite in this series.

    8. Laurel on said:

      I liked the conclusion of this trilogy There are some twists that didn t really surprise me, but did very much surprise my daughter when she read it There was one thing that surprised me Anyway, I like the universe, I like the mythology, I like the magic, I like the hero There is depth in it, I would even consider it a modern children s classic.My daughter wants to write her own review I liked it, it was really exciting And, its really surprising And it is an awesome book

    9. Sierrah O on said:

      i liked this book i would definetly read it again there was some parts i did not like though the ending was really dumb at the end they had the characters wondering what will happen in the next book also the ending of this book just abruptly stopped it did not gradually stop if they left those parts out it would have been even better, but i still liked it it also had many descriptive words and just made the whole story very easy and clear to understand it was a really good book.

    10. Sarah on said:

      I think this was the best book out of the series The chain of events in the books are a bit rushed, but they have a great good versus evil plot This final book did show the most religous overtones compared to the others but it was done well.

    11. Tara on said:

      I read this book in elementary school, and I thought it was amazing I recommend this book to practically anyone, but mostly 3rd to 5th grade.

    12. Barb on said:

      4.5 stars This was one of the first books I added to the To Read list on , so I decided to actually read it I had read the first two, quite a while ago, prior to membership I had added this one back in 2008, so I obviously lost track of the characters, but it read well Patrick has a very nice writing style and was kind enough to remind readers about his characters without reviewing everything I cried at the end I will have to see if there are in this seriesI thought I saw one , and then look fo [...]

    13. Amy Meyers on said:

      It had been too long since I d read the first two books, so I wasn t as gripped as I might have been You can tell these are children s fiction, but still the storytelling it good enough to entertain me as an adult, and they are clean, moral stories I was surprised to see that this was the end of a trilogy, since I had books 4 5 waiting, and that those books aren t necessarily connected to the first three books.

    14. Jerome on said:

      Probably the best book of the series.The character development and symbolism are great, and the plot is intricate, with a lot of subtle foreshadowing The book dwells heavily than usual on Elyon, but these parts often seem to slow down the plot.A clean, creative story overall.

    15. Selah Pike on said:

      The last few chapters had us going, What is going on I m ready to give this series a rest for a bit bring on the Christmas books

    16. Louie on said:

      This will forever be one of my favourite book series of all time.

    17. Jess on said:

      Fantasy based and good read for any 2nd 3rd grade adventure seeker

    18. Ival Ty Crisp on said:

      The third and final installment of the core Elyon trilogy offers a very satisfying continuation to the series Perhaps the best yet, book 3 reveals many mystical truths about the Land of Elyon Alexa s destiny begins to unfold as she fights to rid the world of Abaddon, the source of all evil She isn t alone is this pursuit, although With the help of of her friends aboard the ship, Warwick Beacon, the forces of good may triumph.The Land of Elyon series is comprised of a core trilogy, a semi prequel [...]

    19. Arwen on said:

      I m going to group my thoughts on this trilogy into one entry Wow What an introduction to Patrick Carman This series is fantastic A fantasy story about a young girl I know, I know some of you signed just then because every other YA fantasy story is a about a young girl who finds herself with some special power to save her world And yes this one is starts out just the same Alexa Daley is given a special stone and thrust into a world she doesn t know beyond the safe walls of her city with a destin [...]

    20. B.B. on said:

      Wow I kind of really didn t like this book I mean, it was okay it had to be told to continue the story, but geesh, what sort of writing do you call this You don t sound like a thirteen year old girl, Patrick Carman That may be your wildest fantasy, but no, I m sorry, it just, doesn t work And it was all mixed up and unorganized and honestly, that bit about Odessa not actually being a traitor should not have been left out of the reader s knowledge Really ticked me off, it did And wow, Alexa s War [...]

    21. Eleanor Roth on said:

      I m a big fan of this series, and was pleased with the third installment I was surprised at how quickly things got SUPER Christian some people say they saw it coming, I did not In the past two books we ve heard plenty about how Elyon created everything and lives in this mystical city, but that felt like it could kind of fit in with any fictionalized mythology religious system But book three got super Christian Fine by me, but if that s not your thing or if you re a parent and that isn t your thi [...]

    22. Kim Dennis on said:

      I wish I could have given this one 2.5 stars I was pretty bothered towards the beginning when he was talking about this thing that was so beautiful that it couldn t be described and we just needed to imagine it I thought that was weak He did redeem himself when he went ahead and described it at the end I also felt like he didn t do enough justice to the surprise he dropped at the end It wasn t that he wrapped things up in a neat little bow the way many authors do, he just didn t give it enough a [...]

    24. Janeen-san on said:

      Alexa, Armon the giant, Murphy the Squirrel and Odessa the wolf set off to find the mythical Tenth City, as well as rescue Yipes, who has been captured by the ruthless Grindall and is being held for ransom In return, Grindall demands the last Jocasta, so he can gain the final key to wreak havoc upon the Land of Elyon Can Alexa and her crew manage to save Yipes s life, reach the Tenth City, defeat Grindall and manage to get back home The third book of the The Land of Elyon is just as exciting as [...]

    25. Emily Petit on said:

      This book is a lot of fun to read, due particularly to its quick pace and wealth of character variety The problem, however, is that despite the entertaining diversity of people and animals helping Alexa solve the mystery of Elyon, there is very little strong character development Feelings are mended too easily and past relationships especially that of Alexa and her former enemy, Pervis Kotcher are ignored entirely, as though nothing ever really occurred between the characters The second problem [...]

      Alexa s journey continues right where it left off, on the Warwick Beacon, with a voice on the wind leading her While the journey is uncertain, and at times seems dangerous, still she does what she must.When the original plan to return to Lathbury has to be abandoned, it saddens the crew, but they oblige When they receive directions that seem for sure to be heading them straight towards danger, they comply Though Alexa begins to fear they ll never be able to save their dear friend Yipes, she does [...]

    27. Dan on said:

      Okay, so I still don t like this series I don t enjoy Mr Carman s writing style If he says in ways I could never begin to imagine again, I m going to do something I ll regret later I don t feel any loyalty or attachment to any of the characters or any desire to see the good guys or bad guys win I will say this one thing though, by the end of this book, some of the inexplicable unexplained things that have happen up to that point begin to take shape and make sense I think that if the story was to [...]

    28. Laura on said:

      I liked this one than the second, as so much of the mystery of the walls and Elyon himself were finally made clear I was wrong in my predictions of what was going to happen and how the story was going to turn out Now I understand why this book is sold in Christian Book stores It is very much a story of faith and trust in an unseen being who is the creator guide It was a fun adventure, but can t even begin to compare to other child Christian fantasy.ch as Narnia I understand it is written for yo [...]
