From the Publisher:
When she finds the key to a secret passageway leading out of the walled city of Bridewell, twelve-year-old Alexa realizes her lifelong wish to explore the mysterious forests and mountains that lie beyond the wall.
Annotation:
Bright, resourceful 12-year-old Alexa Daley deeply enjoys her summers in the county seat of Bridewell. Cherished by her father, the mayor of their home town, Lathbury, she spends her time curled up reading in the enormous library. Like all city-dwellers in the realm of Elyon, she lives within impenetrable walls that surround the cities and roads leading to them. While no one seems to be sure what they are being protected from, myths and rumors hint at an unnamed, shadowy adversary that threatens them all. When Alexa manages to breach the walls, she hurtles into a perilous adventure that will not only unlock the mysteries of the land, but expose unspeakable danger. The first title in a trilogy.
