Series overviewEdit

This story covers the voyages of Alexa Daley, a 12-year-old girl in search of the truth in the Land of Elyon. She is the daughter of Thomas Warvold, the explorer of land, and the niece of Roland Warvold, the explorer of the sea. In book 1, 2, and 3, she conquers the evil in the land of elyon, also known as Abbadon. It is discovered in Stargazer that there is something outside of the land of elyon, known as the Five Stone Pillars, where the lost children of Castalia live. Abbadon is still alive and in the form of an metallic electric sea monster, and she conquers him, saving the people on the Five Stone Pillars. Alexa then becomes the explorer of the sky, just like her father and uncle were the explorers of land and sea.
