Stargazer (The Land of Elyon #4)
When last we saw Alexa Daley, she had defeated a threat in her homeland and was sailing with Roland Warvold across the Lonely Sea. She had no idea what adventures awaited her...until now.
After a tragic attack by an evil force, Alexa and her friend Yipes are stranded in a strange community known as The Five Pillars. Each pillar of rock has its own secrects...and its own c...more
The Land of Elyon is the most wonderful, fantastic, brilliant, amazing series ever. It mixes everything I love to find in a book/series together into one beautiful series. Stargazer is the last of the five books and it always blows me away.
I love the world. It's so wonderful and beautiful and medieval and I want to live there.

This'll be my last Patrick Carman book, and much to my surprise Stargazer actually is a more solid finish. Still not good enough to sway my generally low opinion of this series as a whole, but... better than several of its predecessors.
There's still something downright nonsensical about the worldbuilding of this series. Nothing quite fits together; elements of geography, culture, and technology seem to serve the plot rather than create a sense of believable atmosphere. The La ...more

just to let you know so you don't make the same mistake I read it as called "Into the mist" and it showed a picture of Roland and his brother whose name i forgot. of course.
Now, I don't know if I am just getting good at guessing book's outcomes or what, but I KNEW that Marco and Alexa would end up together. I just knew it, right after she was thinking how bad andself-centered he is. I don't know why, but I did. And I was right, and that made me happy.
But I loved this series, and you shou ...more

Book 1: Awesome!!!
Book 2: Pretty good.
Book 3: It was okay.
Book 4 (this book): Didn't really like it.
