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.

Well written, great story, this book is the reason why I love young adult fiction. Highly recommend this series and this author.
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.
