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.

    "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.

    Story
    "I love it!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this book for a friend. I already have! This book was very interesting and always had my attention. I even stayed up past midnight listening to this book. I loved the way the narrator did the voices, and when I had forgot the names of someone who was talking, the voice helped distinguish it.


    What other book might you compare Sky Raiders to and why?

    I would compare the book Fablehaven, also by Brandon Mull, to Sky Raider because, like Sky Raiders, they both kept me listening for hours at a time. It was also very well told and I always knew what was going on and was never confused. I love the story of all of Brandon Mull's books, and their points of view.


    What about Keith Nobbs’s performance did you like?

    Like I said, Keith Nobb's voices helped me distinguish character, create mood, and even better help deliver the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I definitely wanted to listen to all of this in one sitting! The only thing that stopped me was sleep. I listened to it till my eyes felt to heavy to hold open, then I closed my eyes. After, I still listened till I started to doze off. I listened to it in the morning as well as throughout my day even as I got ready for bed. I finished the book from 8:00pm on a Wednesday to 9:00pm on a Thursday. This book easily catches my attention.

    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%.

    "A great read that get you excited and wanting more"
    What made the experience of listening to Sky Raiders the most enjoyable?

    I truly thought Skyraider's would be like the beyond yours. But after five minutes of reading it was completely different. I enjoyed all the twists and turns, and I'm excited for the next book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sky Raiders?

    The first time they enter the sky castle.


    What does Keith Nobbs bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Keith did a flawless job he was able to project a different voices and it was like watching a movie.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Sky Raiders, is not for the faint of heart.
