Author(s): Patrick Carman
Edgar, a gifted climber, is a lonely boy scaling the perilous cliffs that separate the three realms of Atherton: a humble fig grove, a mysterious highland world of untold beauty and sinister secrets, and a vast wasteland where he must confront an unspeakable danger that could destroy the people of Atherton. When Edgar discovers a book which contains the history of Atherton's origins and ultimate apocalypse, his world - quite literally - begins to turn inside out. A gripping adventure fantasy.
Born in Salem, Carman has a degree in economics and had a successful career in business until he began writing full-time in 2004. In his spare time he supports local literacy campaigns and community organisations and enjoys a variety of outdoor sports.
