Book Review: The Tenth City by Patrick Carman

Purchase HERE

Title: The Tenth City

Author: Patrick Carman

Series: The Land of Elyon #3

Genre: Fantasy

Audience: Children/Teen

**4 stars**

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 course, things are not always as they seem! The Christian allegory of this series continues to get bigger, and better. There were some profound moments. Some wonderful, spiritual lessons and the like. Overall, really enjoyed this book! At some points, I did really feel the fact that it was "childrens", and kind of got bored because I wanted to read something more "adult" and deep. But soon, the mysteries and action would have me intrigued again! *smiles* A warning, there is violence and some gore, through the course of THE LAND OF ELYON series, but overall it's great, adventurous fantasy for children/teen! (And older!) I look forward to reading the last book, Stargazer!
