“Seven teens are sent to a remote 'camp,' an institution equipped to cure them of their profound fears. Fort Eden is no summer camp, however, but an isolated bunker run by a prickly caretaker and the elusive program leader, Rainsford. One teen, Will Besting, knows that there is more going on than traditional treatment. Will must face his own demons and survive if he is to help the others. But can any of them truly overcome their fears? Richly woven and hauntingly intriguing, this is a must-read title for fans of the psychological thriller.”
-- Julie Bond, Kepler's Books & Magazine, Menlo Park, CA


Description

When Will Besting approaches Fort Eden for the first time, he knows something isn't right. With more terrifying secrets at every turn, he discovers a hidden fear deep inside himself, a dark mystery a thousand years in the making, and the unexpected girl of his dreams. But can he save everyone from the dangers of Fort Eden before it's too late?

Patrick Carman's Dark Eden is a provocative exploration of fear, betrayal, the power of memory, and the mystery of love.
