"Edgar, a gifted climber, secretly scales the treacherous walls separating the three worlds of Atherton: the humble grove that is his home...a mysterious highland realm of untold beauty and sinister secrets ...and a vast wasteland below, where a monstrous danger lurks that could destroy them all. While searching the forbidden cliffs for a treasure lost in his faded memory, Edgar discovers the first of many startling revelations to come: the three realms are beginning to collapse, turning his entire world inside out. Atherton is not what it seems, but something far more dangerous, with a history locked inside the mind of a madman and a future beyond Edgar's wildest imagining."--Publisher website.

This book is about the future. It's at a place called Atherton and the main character's name is Edgar. The book is about Edgar and the people of Atherton trying to survive the worlds changes. The book does not have a conclusion. Thats why you should read the second book.

This story relates to the real world because the real world is falling apart. The world in this story is too. I like the plot and characters in this story. I like the plot and charecters because they are so realistic.

I think this book is good for any one who likes sci-fi and adventure. So altogether, I think this book is great. :)

A story that accurately depicts what might come to pass in an apocalyptic future. Earth is now devoid of life and on this new man-made deceptively peaceful planet, things are coming to a head. Lovely illustrations as well.

This is a book that will take you on a wild journey through a truly strange land. You'll start out knowing nothing, but as you catch on, you won't be able to put the book down!
