    One thought on “The Dark Hills Divide”

    1. I wasn t able to read this book every day like I usually do with novels, so for a long time I attributed my lack of interest in it s characters, and my confusion regarding the plot, to the fact that I wasn t able to keep the flow But the I read the confused I got I was actually intrigued at the beginning and the end left me scratching my head wondering what the point of the story was.Like I said, the beginning was intriguing, governmental type meeting, a suspicious death, a riddle, a walled ci [...]

    2. What a delightful and charming tale I can hardly believe I ve been missing out on this splendid, little series all this time The Dark Hills Divide by Patrick Carman brings us into the intriguing Land of Elyon, where we meet sweet Alexa Daley, who is quite smart and courageous She s been trying for quite a while to learn of what lies beyond the walls that at times seem to imprison her Meanwhile, her father and his fellow advisers and friends try to keep her out of trouble But upon old Warvold s s [...]

    3. So, my relationship with this book is weird I was in fourth grade when it first came out, living in the same town as Patrick Carman, and in that small community it was a big deal to have a local author, especially when he got picked up by My teacher actually read this book aloud to the class though I think it was actually the independent edition, in which Chapter 18 includes a bizarre detour into the world of dentistry You think I m kidding I still own that book, and I checked, just to make sure [...]

    4. Alexa is apparently the ONLY child in existence, not to mention the only FEMALE in existence, given that her mother is on the periphery, only communicating through a letter, and that Renny is dead Even Odessa, Darius wife, has no speaking part Alexa lives in a bizarre community of middle aged men which is a just plain weird Where are all the other children I thought this was a kids book Alexa is, especially in the first half, far too passive a character She is told what to do by adults or animal [...]

    5. The Dark Hills Divide is a simple fantasy book directed to children that has captivated my heart in ways than I imagined I do not know why I am so in love with this book it has the same basic elements of other fantastical children stories and it doesn t really deviate itself from the norm But the seaming of the lovable characters, the mysterious setting, and the adventure was so well done that it become a beautiful work.We see from the point of view of Alexa, a gusty and curious girl who wishes [...]

    6. I was hoping that this would be a series I could recommend to voracious middle grade fantasy readers, but no such luck There are the seeds of a good story here, with at least one good character and the possibility of a suspenseful plot As it stands, though, they are overwhelmed by vast info dump and the feeling that it doesn t matter if anything the characters do is something a real, sane person would do if the author needs it to happen, it s going to happen regardless of how many WTFs it induce [...]

    7. I still remember the moment I saw this bookThe cover caught my attention and felt like a great story to read To be honest, I got all first three books at a book bazaar, just because of the cover Now, I ve read the first book and I am beyond happy for my choice It s a bit middle grade ish but still, a great adventure of a little girl who never stops dreaming and living her life no matter what She is an amazing character Even though the book is written by a male author, the main character is femal [...]

    8. Alexa, a spirited, independent twelve year old growing up in a complex of walled villages, longs for adventure and a chance to see what lies beyond the walls boundaries When she discovers a secret passage, she gets her wish, and adventure than she bargained for in the process For Alexa has been chosen to save her home from dark forces which seek its destruction, and she must act quickly to unravel the mystery that lurks inside the walls and threatens everything she holds dear This first volume [...]

    9. I m going to group my thoughts on this trilogy into one entry Wow What an introduction to Patrick Carman This series is fantastic A fantasy story about a young girl I know, I know some of you signed just then because every other YA fantasy story is a about a young girl who finds herself with some special power to save her world And yes this one is starts out just the same Alexa Daley is given a special stone and thrust into a world she doesn t know beyond the safe walls of her city with a destin [...]

    10. The Dark Hills Divide takes us on an exciting and mysterious adventure as we explore the many walls within our lives Some of these boundaries we impose upon ourselves, some are put upon us by the society in which we live some are physical, and some are emotional.The Land of Elyon is divided into four walled and gated cities joined to each other by walled roads Every gate in every city is guarded As far as everyone knows, there is no way to the other side of the wall.Every summer, the leaders of [...]

    11. Odd book about a girl named Alexa in a city entirely walled off from a forest down to the roads coming in and going out The convicts who built the city and are abandoned outside are falling under the sway of a person named Sebastian, and plan to invade It s up to Alexa and some talking animals to stop them.There s just too many odd decisions and twists to make sense They mentioned building the walls to stave off some evil, but what evil and why are the convicts immune to it Why does Alexa need t [...]

    12. I really like this book because it is fantasy I really don t know why i like fantasy This book was really good because Alexa trys to save as many people as she can She also is just a very caring person like me The author really didn t explain much about it or what is happening in some parts Like she told us who she was saving but like not how she saved them Thats what I don t like about this book I also like this book because she meets a lot of people who are like monsters but not exactly monste [...]

    13. I don t even know where to begin I didn t like the book I actually gave up on finishing it a few times, but I d read so much of it already that it didn t feel right to just abandon the story I picked it up again last week, and today I finally finished it.You know, I m actually a little disappointed, because Patrick Carman s writing when it comes down to describing nature and architecture is really good and vivid, but the plot and character development were a huge mess.Some of the reasons why I m [...]

    14. This was an odd little book But charming nonetheless It didn t always make sense, but gee There s something magical about the world that pulls me in

    15. The novel is about an adventurous girl, Alexa Daley This summer like every other summer she s with her father and visiting a village, Bridewell For a twelve year old she s eager to solve the mystery of what lies beyond the walls that surround the village Here she discovers the truth and exposes a danger that could destroy and change the Land of Elyon forever The last dramatic words from the blurb I would recommend this novel, if you like adventure and have a curious mind that s opened to where a [...]

    16. I picked up this book to read while volunteering in an elementary school library in 2005 when it was first published I liked the look of the book the curb appeal of the cover, the title, the synopsis written on the back cover.I was not disappointed The Dark Hills Divide, the first book in the The Land of Elyon book series by Patrick Carman was a delightful read So much so, that I have decided to re read the series again I know, I know, so many books, so little time why re read a book Well, basic [...]

    17. Alexa lives within walls but the discovery of a key sets her off on an adventure where she enters the outlying forest and onto the trail of a traitor Promising stuff three cities entirely surrounded by forty foot walls to keep out the dangers a dark forest keys puzzles, immense library but it s got some issues problems the animals show up out of nowhere Why did Alexa trust them explicitly and follow them on such a long trip on her very first trip outside of the walls If my wife and kid are on th [...]

    18. Alexa is a 12 year old girl, who lives in the walled sea side city of Lathubury Alexa and her father are traveling on their annul trip from Lathbury to Bridewell Bridwell is the spoke of the wheel three other cities branch out from it, and all of them are surrounded by 48 feet high stone walls, which the legendary traveler Warvold built, long ago in his youth, to protect those he loved from the terrors of the wild.The real story and danger begins with the sudden death of Warvold, setting off a c [...]

    19. I can t help that sometimes I like these sort of books because it s just all about the adventure A simple and fun adventure of a girl who wants to know what s beyond the walls, and is clever enough to figure out how to escape My one problem with the book is that everyone talks about how much Warvold meant to everyone, and Alexa loved him and was close to him, and yet there was no real grieving from anyone I understand that might have been a bit too serious for this book and that s why Carman mov [...]

    20. Twelve year old Alexa has spent her whole life confined within the city walls of Bridewell longing to see , longing to explore a world beyond the walls But the walls were built to protect those living in the city, they were built to keep the dangers out and it was against the law to leave But what if the real danger was not outside the walls but within Alexa would spend her days in the city playing as a spy, hiding in the shadows Then when she discovered a key, a secret passageway and a magical [...]

    21. I didn t find this story particularly believable I didn t believe whatever reason the founder of the city had for building the walls in the first place, nor that he or his wife would hide secret and complicated clues about the possible destruction of the city rather than just ousting the criminal outright Supposedly Warvold wasn t sure about the danger until the day he died, yet his wife made a jocosta and a spyglass identifying the traitor long before her own death It s hard to believe that the [...]

    22. The Walls are what has kept Bridewell safe The Walls keep the unknowns away.But the walls will destroy them all.Alexa is a twelve year old girl from the town of Lathbury in the Land of Elyon Alexa and her father travel to Eloyn s capitol, Bridewell, for the summer holiday when an old magic deep inside the kingdom s history come to play once With the asistence of this old magic Alexa must find who is not who they seem The very people surronding her are the people she cares about, loves, and trus [...]

    23. I m afraid that although I read this book, there was nothing notable about it that causes me to remember anything from it I think it was written in that style for people who read books on the beach to relax, because it was very slow going Since I didn t read it on a beach, that could be why I didn t get as much out of it I wish that I could try that, but my family doesn t have any beach towels I feel like writing a review is the polite thing to do, but I really only remember there was a man in i [...]

    24. Enjoyable enough, but I did have a few issues with it, some spelling mistakes and some things with the history of the place Also, Alexa came to some conclusions just a bit too quickly So, some things felt rushed Overall, this is definitely a story that I would have enjoyed a whole lot 10 years ago when I first bought it at a Book Fair, when I was closer to Alexa s age I will continue on with the rest of the series, but I m not dying to read the next one since this wrapped up so nicely.
