The number-one New York Times best-selling Beyonders fantasy trilogy comes to a stunning and epic conclusion.
Jason and Rachel were not born in Lyrian. They did not grow up in Lyrian. But after all of the battles and losses, the triumphs and adventures, and most of all, the friendships forged in this fantastical world, Lyrian has become home to them in a way they never could have imagined.
And so, armed now with the prophecy of a dying oracle, they have gone on their separate quests - each surrounded by brave and powerful allies - knowing that the chance for success is slim. But Jason and Rachel are ready at last to become the heroes Lyrian needs, no matter the cost.

This book was one of the best closings I have ever read. It was fast-paced and intense nearly the entire time.
I love the fantasy genre. One critique I generally have is the author never knows how to handle its characters' super powers. For example, a character may know how to control people's minds, but doing so would end the conflict - so instead the author has the character cause a tree branch to rustle so the character can make an escape. Not so in this book. The characters are very resourceful and creative.
Also, in Brandon Mull's other books, his adolescent characters did not fit their age. In all aspects his characters should have been in their 20s, (size, strength, comprehension, etc). However, in this book his characters were perfect. The story was very creative and believable. I loved it.
I loved the character development. Jason was a little lost in his earth life, and he becomes a hero. Rachel is an Alpha woman and leaves her prosperous future....
I liked how the book doesn't leave a lot to the imagination. Most books are, "what happened next?" But Brandon Mull does a great job of summing up.
Jeremy Bobb was perfect for this book. His voices for the characters remained the same throughout.
The next Lord of the Rings trilogy.
The best thing about this series is the long list of imaginative creatures and characters. Just when you expect him to run out of ideas, Brandon Mull comes up with another unique idea. Lots of fun, this book, and the ending doesn't disappoint.
A dreamer who loves the adventures hidden in every story!!
This was a fitting end to the story. All loose ends were adequately tied up and and story laid to rest in just the right way. The writing and narration were superb. Jeremy Bobb is an excellent narrator. He did a wonderful job throughout the series.
I stayed up all night listening to the last 6 chapters! I will be telling everyone I know to read this book. Narration was amazing, though suttle, the voice changes separated the charters and made it very easy to listen too. I love this app, please keep up the amazing work!
Just a college kid trying to get though life and have fun while doing it.
I DIDNT READ THE PRINTED SO I COULDNT TELL YOU
LOVE JASON CAUSE HE AMAZING OR I LOVE THE HALF GIANT BECAUSE HE JUST A BEAST!!
I JUST ENJOYED HIS VOICES AND THE TONE OF HIS VOICE. HARD TO SAY WHAT I LIKE JUST THAT I LIKED IT.
YES. I WANTED TO KEEP LISTENING TO IT BUT I HAVE WORK AND KIDS AND IT WAS SO NICE TO JUST PICK UP RIGHT WHERE I LEFT OFF.
I started this story on a 10-hour drive home; it made the trip seem much shorter. It was very creative and imaginative and I enjoyed it very much. I will recommend it to my 10-year-old grandson, my adult children, and anyone else who enjoys a good fantasy.
It is such a sad feeling when you finish the last book in a wonderfully imersive book series. This is the third time I have read (or listened) to The Beyonders. love it more every time.
