The second epic installment of Brandon Mull’s #1 New York Times bestselling fantasy series!After the cliffhanger ending of A World Without Heroes, Jason is back in the world he’s always known - yet for all his efforts to get home, he finds himself itching to return to Lyrian. Jason knows that the shocking truth he learned from Maldor is precious information that all of his friends in Lyrian, including Rachel, need if they have any hope of surviving and defeating the evil emperor.
Meanwhile, Rachel and the others have discovered new enemies - as well as new abilities that could turn the tide of the entire quest. And as soon as Jason succeeds in crossing over to Lyrian, he’s in more danger than ever. Once the group reunites, they strive to convince their most-needed ally to join the war and form a rebellion strong enough to triumph over Maldor. At the center of it all, Jason and Rachel realize what roles they’re meant to play - and the answers are as surprising as they are gripping.

I love reading a book and listening to a book.
I loved this series so much, I'm reading the books after listening to them all on audio book. I'm recommending it to all my friends and family who love fantasy writing. I'm also thinking of adapting it to be a D&D campaign for my daughter and her friends.
I would listen to this novel again, because the story is good but also there are gems of dialogue that inspire.
When Ferrin wonders if he can be trusted. He wonders if he is completely corrupt.
Deliver was clear and enthusiastic without being corny.
When Jason wonders what role he should play and if his work isn't finished. He asks this through out the book and it becomes an internal quest.
Thanks to Brandon Mull for a good read.
A dreamer who loves the adventures hidden in every story!!
Like the first I really enjoyed this installment in the series. While writing the review of this one, I have started on the 3rd and final installment of the Beyonders series. Brandon Mull is a very adapt author. He knows how to cultivate his characters and adequately how to keep the reader interested in the story. This is probably one of the best YA fictions I have read.
This one starts off a bit slow, but still is a fun listen. Good narration. I like this series
Well written, great story, this book is the reason why I love young adult fiction. Highly recommend this series and this author.
This was as good as the first. You will find yourself drawn deeper into this world. The only down side is now I have to wait for the next book to come out.
As with the Fablehaven series, this book is even better. Great action, fast paced, very clean for all ages I highly recommend this book to anyone.
As for the performance it was great, I was waiting for one of the characters to say "I'm Batman" but it didn't happen (I'll let you guess who that character was) JK
Can't wait for the rest of the books!
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.
I bought the first two of this series in a 'buy 2 get 1 free' sale. I listened to both of them but it was a bit tedious. The problem is that the story is about 2 juveniles (13yo) written in a juvenile manner. The basic premise is great but there is no character development, no real world building and really little more than a conglomeration of interesting encounters set in a very broad framework of 'bad guy rules the world'. I've been really sick with the flu and these books required little attention and even if you fell asleep for an hour while listening, you wouldn't miss anything in terms of action. Duels are started and completed within about six sentences, You may find the central character doomed to a life of imprisonment and torture and within a few paragraphs the 13 year old boy is rescued easily by a friend.
I would say this is perfect for the young teen to read but I remember that Harry Potter was perfect and still challenged and held the imagination of those who read the series.
I was disappointed.
