I found this series interesting, even though I'm not really into science or dystopian fiction. As the trilogy progresses, I think we learn more about Atherton, and Dr. Harding, than we do about the three children who are the main characters. I would have liked a little more development there, but I thought Patrick Carman still closed out the series well. Nothing to mention for offensive content, either.

This trilogy was the best I've read of Carman's imagination! Exceptionally well-done!

Edgar faces more dangers than he ever anticipated when he makes his way into the Dark Planet --- formerly known as "Earth." The dreaded Cleaners are only one element in his dangerous journey. Following instructions from the brilliant, sometimes mad Dr. Max Harding, Edgar must risk his life to complete this mission. His instructions have come through a technological wonder created by Dr. Harding "before" the doctor’s untimely death. Dr. Harding created Atherton in the hopes of providing a livable environment away from the diseased and dying earth. But his creativity did not stop there --- he also created Edgar: "I made you, Edgar. Just as I made Atherton." While Edgar accepts that Dr. Harding is his father and did love him, it is still hard for him to understand his own role in this strange mission to the Dark Planet.
Edgar leaves behind his friends, Samuel and Isabel, and is told to trust no one in Atherton --- especially Dr. Kincaid (who is his mentor) and his dear friend Vincent. Only later does Edgar understand the implications of these instructions and why they are so vital in revealing the final secrets that lie between Atherton and the Dark Planet.
