Críticas:

"Rich with wonder and personality, "The Emerald Atlas" is a terrific read. I wholeheartedly recommend it, and look forward to more." -- Brandon Mull, #1 "New York Times" bestselling author of Fablehaven and Beyonders
Starred Review, School Library Journal, June 2011:
"Unfolding magic and secrets deepen the story and build excitement as it reaches its complex and time-bending climax....Echoes of other popular fantasy series, from Harry Potter to the Narnia books, are easily found, but debut author Stephens has created a new and appealing read that will leave readers looking forward to the next volumes in this projected trilogy.""
"Publishers Weekly, January 18, 2011:
"This fast-paced, fully imagined fantasy is by turns frightening and funny, and the siblings are well-crafted and empathetic heroes. Highly enjoyable, it should find many readers."
The Wall Street Journal, April 2, 2011:
"[A] great story is all in the telling, and in 'The Emerald Atlas' the telling is superb...First-time novelist John Stephens has created a vicarious adventure for children ages 9-15 the first in a trilogy filled with unexpected twists and marvelously distinct and vivid characters."
BookPage, April 2, 2011:
"With magic, humor and unforgettable characters, John Stephens remarkable debut novel follows Kate, Michael and Emma as they attempt to outwit the Countess, rescue the children and maybe even save the world in the process. Unanswered questions and two more books to locate ensure a sequel and more robust adventures ahead."
Realms of Fantasy, April 2011:
Ambitious, entertaining, magical, and whimsical, this marks a strong beginning to a new trilogy, invoking just a little "Harry Potter" and "Series of Unfortunate Events" along the way.
Booklist, March 15, 2011:

Kirkus, March 15, 2011:
Each character has such a likable voice that the elaborate story doesn t feel overcomplicated. . . . The only gripe readers might initially have is with its length, but by the end, they ll immediately wish it was longer.
Library Media Connection, May / June 2011:
A rollicking fantasy filled with shiver-inspiring evil creatures and quiet heroes. The feisty sisters and the intellectual brother will win the hearts of readers of all ages.
CrackingTheCover.com, April 5, 2011:
" Creativity and wit abound in 'The Emerald Atlas.' Author John Stephens could have easily fallen into the trap of building on someone else s ideas. But he doesn t.
Stephens doesn t write down to his readers. Rather he offers a sophisticated narrative that will appeal to children and adults alike. It s clear he had fun writing and that 'The Emerald Atlas' was painstakingly thought out.

Reseña del editor:

"A strong . . . new trilogy, invoking just a little Harry Potter and Series of Unfortunate Events along the way."--Realms of Fantasy

Siblings Kate, Michael, and Emma have been in one orphanage after another for the last ten years, passed along like lost baggage.

Yet these unwanted children are more remarkable than they could possibly imagine. Ripped from their parents as babies, they are being protected from a horrible evil of devastating power, an evil they know nothing about.

Until now.

Before long, Kate, Michael, and Emma are on a journey through time to dangerous and secret corners of the world . . . a journey of allies and enemies, of magic and mayhem. And--if an ancient prophesy is true--what they do can change history, and it's up to them to set things right.


"A new Narnia for the tween set."--The New York Times


"[A] fast-paced, fully imagined fantasy."--Publishers Weekly

"Echoes of other popular fantasy series, from "Harry Potter" to the "Narnia" books, are easily found, but debut author Stephens has created a new and appealing read . . ."--School Library Journal, Starred Review
