    I just wanted to say that I have spent about an hour or more searching for the name of this book series. I read these books when I was young, and I loved them so much I had to call my best friend to get help on the name! (she has an incredible memory, even since we were kids, and we’re still close friends to this day which is awesome.) Thank you, for writing these. They made an impact; seeing as though I’m about to purchase them so that I can re read them.

    January 2016
    I picked up Beyond The Valley Of The Thorns in my travels and have been thrilled with it. Once I started I did not want to set it down, oh well, as an adult one has to make dinner, needless to say, I hurried to get back to the adventure and was not disappointed. Since I started with Book 2 I must find the others to complete the series. Thank you for your work on The Land Of Elyon.
