Publisher Description

"A strong . . . new trilogy, invoking just a little Harry Potter and Series of Unfortunate Events along the way."—Realms of Fantasy

Siblings Kate, Michael, and Emma have been in one orphanage after another for the last ten years, passed along like lost baggage.
Yet these unwanted children are more remarkable than they could possibly imagine. Ripped from their parents as babies, they are being protected from a horrible evil of devastating power, an evil they know nothing about.
Until now.
Before long, Kate, Michael, and Emma are on a journey through time to dangerous and secret corners of the world . . . a journey of allies and enemies, of magic and mayhem. And—if an ancient prophesy is true—what they do can change history, and it's up to them to set things right.

"A new Narnia for the tween set."—The New York Times

"[A] fast-paced, fully imagined fantasy."—Publishers Weekly

"Echoes of other popular fantasy series, from "Harry Potter" to the "Narnia" books, are easily found, but debut author Stephens has created a new and appealing read . . ."—School Library Journal, Starred Review

Emerald Atlas

It was a good book. It was a little long and took me all summer to read it. I had a busy summer. I decided to read it with my son over the summer. It was a great book in that it took you to a different world and a lot of adventures. My son will not read the next book but I will. I have to see what happens. The big question, Does the kids find their parents?

Perfect book

One of the best books I've ever read! It's a must read...

Great book!

I loved the book. I think it is for 11 up, because it is a teensy bit gory (in one of the books in this series the little girl gets impaled with an arrow). I definitely reccomend it to anyone who likes fairy-tale-unrealistic stuff.
