Alexa's old jocasta had no more value but recieved a new jocasta. This new jocasta was special because not only could you speak to animals but also was able to hear the voice of Eylon. There quest is to overthrow Grindal. Grindal is controled by Abaddon who is the like the devil. Grindall has orges, infected giants. there second part of theere quest is to free a captive.

I like this book because of the writer and the image he gives me. I like the way he thinks and writes. His writing is a page turner for me. IU can't wait to read the tenth city, the next book in the series. ( )

After saving Bridewell from the man who'd tried to destroy it from within, Alexa Daley thought her troubles were over.

But bringing down the walls has opened the land to a new threat from outside. Forces are gathering to bring darkness to the land, and Alexa must play a key role in stopping it from happening.

Her adventures will take her BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THORNS and have her confronting giants, bats, ravenous dogs, and an evil mastermind who might be more than she can handle.

Reuniting with Alexa in the adventure of the second THE LAND OF ELYON book thrilled me just as it did the first time I read it. These books are great for fantasy lovers of all ages. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0439700949, Hardcover)

The second dazzling installment in Patrick Carman's masterful Land of Elyon trilogy

Alexa thought her troubles were over when she defeated the man who had threatened to bring down Bridewell from within. But now that the walls around her land have fallen, a new, unexpected threat has risen from outside. Suddenly, Alexa is involved in a battle much, much larger than her own life . . . a battle in which she is destined to play a key role. In order to help good defeat evil, Alexa and her friends must venture farther than they've ever gone before -- confronting giants, bats, ravenous dogs, and a particularly ghoulish mastermind in order to bring back peace.
