Publisher's Summary

Adventure awaits in the Five Kingdoms - come and claim it in this start to a new series from the number-one New York Times best-selling author of the Fablehaven and Beyonders series.

Cole Randolph was just trying to have a fun time with his friends on Halloween (and maybe get to know Jenna Hunt a little better). But when a spooky haunted house turns out to be a portal to something much creepier, Cole finds himself on an adventure on a whole different level.

After Cole sees his friends whisked away to some mysterious place underneath the haunted house, he dives in after them - and ends up in The Outskirts.

The Outskirts are made up of five kingdoms that lie between wakefulness and dreaming, reality and imagination, life and death. It’s an in-between place. Some people are born there. Some find their way there from our world, or from other worlds.

And once you come to the Outskirts, it’s very hard to leave.

With the magic of the Outskirts starting to unravel, it’s up to Cole and an unusual girl named Mira to rescue his friends, set things right in the Outskirts, and hopefully find his way back home…before his existence is forgotten.

    Story
    "A little scary at first, but a great story!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    My son, 10, and I both enjoyed this book. It seemed a little too scary early on (not good for younger kids), but very fun and interesting throughout. The action is fast enough to hold his attention, and creative enough to hold mine. We really liked it & are disappointed not to have the whole series available on Audible.

    My husband and I use audio books so we can read the same book at the same time. This way we can discuss and have fun listening together.

    I am a person that tries and get through 1 book a week if possible. I am Dyslexic so this is really the only way I can get through a book. I have listened to more book in a year than I read my first 20 years of my life. I found the joy of audio books in the early 2000 and have been a audible customer since 2000 or 2001. I have over 490 books in 2 different accounts and listened to 90%.

    "liked the book, not the audio"

    while I liked the story, having it read to me while I relaxed or did other stuff really sucked, I find myself missing a lot of information and wondering what happened in parts of the book when other things happened and being unable to easily look back made it difficult to keep track of the story

    "I loved it! It was written well and read well."

    I enjoy getting lost in one of Brandon Mull's books. He does an excellent job keeping the mystery of magic alive while keeping the characters rooted, and relatable.

    Brandon does it again--thoughtful and creative fantasy--interesting to all and safe for the children. The five kingdoms shares the next series of a genius imagination.
