From the Publisher
Atherton was once a magnificent three-tiered world, but few
inhabitants know the truth of its dark origin: it is a giant
man-made satellite, created as a refuge from a dying Earth. Now
this strange place is torn apart--its three lands, formerly
separated by treacherous cliffs, have collapsed and collided. But a
gifted climber and adventurous orphan boy, Edgar, is determined to
discover the secret of Atherton''s survival, and embarks on a
life-or-death quest to find its mad maker.
In bestselling author Patrick Carman''s rich and riveting follow-up
to The House of Power, an extraordinary world meets its
destiny in an epic and unforgettable rebirth.
