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.
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.
This book is the best thing that has happend in my life. It has great characters and the best story there could be! I can't believe it's over, and I need more. Currently crying while writing this, but I just have to say these books are amazing and I love them with all my heart!
good story i found myself hoping Rachel would do what she did. the reader did a good job it makes me hope that there will be books added to this story. good job.
I loved this final book of the series. I started Brandon Mull with the Five kingdoms series. Looking back, I wish I would have started here. I came to live and care about the characters and the world. The author did such a great job and conveying the anguish and sorrow the characters felt. I found myself emotional more than once as I read/listened. The voices were done perfectly.
