    I seriously loved this book. It was fun and quirky in a totally Neil Gaiman style. I wish it were longer though, since I enjoyed it so much. I would recommend this as a fast fun listen.

    Story

    Each and every book in the series has not been a let down. I listened to several of the Ranger Apprentice books, and I finally realized it was to predictable and the reader there was .... ugggh.... I wanted something more like this. The storyteller is awesome! The book is fun start to finish and is exciting as always. NICE JOB GUYS!

    My 6th grade son and I love this series. There is nothing more fun than ancient god's and the adventures of a hero. This was just as fun and just as good as any of the rest of the books in this series.

    I seriously enjoyed the Beyonders series. I loved the storyteller as well. It made the book really enjoyable. I can't wait for the next one to come out. It leaves you at the end hanging in each one! This is by far the best Brandon Mull book I have read.

    When young magicians Carter and Sadie Kane learned how to follow the path of the Ancient Egyptian gods, they knew they would have to play an important role in restoring Ma’at (order) to the world. What they didn’t know is how chaotic the world would become. The Chaos snake Apophis is loose and threatening to destroy the Earth in three days’ time. The magicians are divided. The gods are disappearing, and those who remain are weak. What are a couple of teenagers and a handful of young trainees to do?

    I loved all three books of the Kane Chronicles. It was as fun as Percy Jackson (written by the same author). The voices and storytelling were very animated and fun. My kids loved these books as much as I did. I would definitely recommend it.

    Twelve-year-old Artemis Fowl is a millionaire, a genuis, and, above all, a criminal mastermind. But even Artemis doesn't know what he's taken on when he kidnaps a fairy, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit. These aren't the fairies of bedtime stories, they're dangerous! Full of unexpected twists and turns, Artemis Fowl is a riveting, magical adventure.

    This book didn't make me want to read the rest of the series. It was slow and hard to get into. Sad really, as it came highly recommended. I'm not anxious to hear the rest of the books for sure.
