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.

This book is about the future. It takes place on Atherton and the main character is named Edgar. The book is about Edgar and the people of Atherton trying to survive the big changes in their world.

This story relates to the real world because Atherton is the real world in the future. I like the plot and characters in this story. I like them because they are so realistic. I also like how they discribe the sound in the story.

I think this book is good for sixth graders and up. So altogether, this book is great.
(p.s. you should read it)
