Is there going to be a sequel series? BECAUSE I NEED A SEQUEL SERIES. I loved this so so so incredibly much and I'm not ready to let go of the awesomeness that is drinlings and displacers and the seedmen and THE FUTURE OF THIS WORLD. OMG.

Words fail me. With The Candy Shop War, I smiled and laughed and loved the originality of it all. With Fablehaven, all I could do was rave about it and love it and read...and read and read. I thought Keys to the Demon Prison, my new favorite book, was impossible to outdo. I was amazed to doubt this conclusion when I read A World Without Heroes.
With Seeds of Rebellion, each page upped my heartbeat to a new level and kept me awake long after I should have been in deep slumber. Now, Brandon Mull ha
That was it? *sigh* It went a little something like this:

Jason: *watches baboons fight*

Rachel: He's sooo weird. I like him.

Everyone: Hey, let's split up.

Jason/Rachel: *awkward hug*

Book: *informs me over and over that what they're attempting is impossible*

Characters: *inform me that it's not impossible but incredibly improbable and that most of them will die by the end*

Characters: *run around*

Plot: *drags on*

Me: *bored*

And then the end....

Characters: Most of us are dead.

A nice ending to the trilogy - although I'd rank Book 2 (Seeds of Rebellion) best of the three. It may just be me, but the balance of straight exposition to the usual witty dialogue and action seemed off, making parts of the book seem stilted. However, still a good read that kept me reading late into the night to see how the impossible quests resolved.

I find it interesting to read a book written by someone with the same spiritual background - I often find reflections or discussions of spiritual

This was a good book. Nothing more, nothing less. If you're one of those people (like me) who needs at least a bit of action in their books, you will not enjoy this book fully. The beginning of this book starts slow, and it doesn't get much better until you're about halfway through it. That is a long period of time. If you read the Fablehaven series, and did not appreciate Kendra being more important then Seth, you will feel a tad bit disappointed with Rachel and Jason. She does a lot of importa ...more
These books are great. Stunning even. I loved the world and ideas od beyonders and the other races. I also thought the ending was done very well, and the certain scenes near the last chapter made me cry way to much to stay coherent.

Of course, i knew some of those scenes were coming, but many at once? unexpected.

Characters are great. Everyone had roles they had to complete in order for this war to succeed. It was a bit slower than the second book but I still enjoyed it and sacrificed sleep to do

I'm still kind of on a high after the end of the book and so my emotions are a bit out of whack. I'll start by saying I love Brandon Mull. I have loved everything of his that I have read. Fablehaven definitely is in my top 3 favorite series.

Initially my response to this book probably wouldn't be to give it a full 5 stars because it is full of disappointments. Although I expected there to be some it is still often hard to take. I definitely got emotional at the end. But as a whole I think the se

“Wow! I can hardly believe I finished Beyonders."

This was my exact thoughts upon finishing yikes.

I'm not exactly too impressed with this overall series. I thought the ending would help cement something better and positive but it didn't unfortunately. It feels like it got to a point, then climax--erm, my apologises anti-climax before it just halted and said 'welp that's the end of this story, see you in the next one!' kind of feeling.

I was waiting only a month or so for this book to come out. I'm a new fan of Brandon Mull's works, and I've already read all of them over a course of about three months. I actually just happened upon the Beyonders one day in my school library and a friend online told me about Fablehaven, and now I have finished both series plus both Candy Shop War books.

از این کتاب بیشتر از دو کتاب قبلی خوشم اومد. پایانی جالب برای مجموعه بود. تلخ و شیرین. پیروزی بهایی داره.
داستان پر بود از فداکاری و وفاداری نسبت به هدف و برای دوستان. شخصیت های داستان در راه آزادی و نابودی ظلم کشته می شدند. خودشون رو فدای دوستان شون و هدف بالاتر می کردند. مریدی که برای برملا کردن خیانت، جون خودش رو داد. با وجود این که دلش می خواست برای آخرین بار پادشاهی که بهش وفاداره رو ببینه. توبه کرده ای که (تقریبا) همه تا آخرین لحظه بهش مشکوک بودن و فکر می کردن خیانت می کنه و مجبور شد با فدا

I had mixed feelings about this book. First off, it was a decent ending to a good fantasy series. Mull doesn't truly disappoint with his books (with the possible exception of Candy Shop War book 1). On the other hand, I didn't feel like this series lived up to its potential. My biggest disappointment was actually Maldor's story. What a character with potential! And yet in this book, he took almost a two dimensional role, being exceptionally cocky throughout without the brilliance he showed in th ...more

A friend recommended these books to me sometime after the second book came out. I was reluctant to read them at first because I had never read an unfinished series before. I thought the first book was great. The second book made me more excited than anything I had ever read. My younger brothers took turns borrowing the books when I finished them. We had many many animated discussions about the characters, what an amazing movie the second book would make, the increadible species Brandon Mull crea ...more
Wow. Just wow. Brandon Mull is a god of fantasy – one of my top three favorite authors – and this book does not disappoint. It is a great conclusion to a phenomenal series.

As usual, Mull’s imagination knows no bounds. He fills his world with such creations, I simply don’t know how he comes up with them. Among the more impressive things in this book was the Maumet and the way it was destroyed.

But as well as a fantastically developed world, this book also had fantastic characters, and especially t

Really? That is how you are going to leave it? There is going to be another book or another series... right?

Those were pretty much my exact thoughts upon finishing this book (well, I may have cleaned them up a little bit).

When I picked up the first Beyonders book in Barnes & Noble shortly after it came out I ended up staying at Barnes & Noble until I had finished it. A completely unintentional read. I liked it. A lot.

I have been waiting for this third book for what seems like ages. And I

4.5 out of 5 Stars

Opinion Time: Beyonders Trilogy > Fablehaven, by a few smidgens. I love/hate that sinking, satisfying feeling you get when you read the last book in a series, especially this conclusion. I've loved this world, the characters--my favorites being Nedwin(3rd), Ferrin(2nd), and Galloran(1st), Jason(MVP). I need a sequel series now; if Brandon Mull is writing a sequel series to Fablehaven, there needs to be a sequel companion standalone, at least.
What? That's it? Sigh. I hope the next series would still include Jason and Rachel. Although I have a feeling that the main character's gonna ba (view spoiler).
Anyway, this book is sloooooooow. So many inner thoughts especially in Rachel's chapters.

Not too long ago I read several epic fantasies which I found excellent back to back. This is a great thing...except that then you end up comparing everything you read to those books.

This is the third in what I find to be a very...mediocre series of books. The first time I tried to read the first book I pretty much decided not to follow it up. Still I kept running across those who liked them so I thought I'd give them another chance.

This is third and climatic volume of the trilogy. It like the ot

After being mildly disappointed with the first two volumes of the series, the finale more than makes up for it. Finally, the world of Lyiria really feels thick and real and alive. Maybe it has to do with the two Beyonders feeling more and home there. With the oracle as a guide the plot is totally focused. At the same time, the oracle is scant on details and is declared to be only a remote hope, but the only hope for a good outcome, so there is room for much suspense and several powerful surprise ...more

This was a great ending to an excellent series. I have been blown away by the fantastic world Brandon mull has created. It has thoroughly sucked me in further with each book. The only thing I didn't like as much with this book was that Rachel and Jason had to split up for separate quests which left the reader skipping back and forth. I usually like the flow of one continuous story but it still read well. I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves Harry potter type fantasies. It was so we ...more

This was a good book but it was slower than the last two. I think its because of Rachel's side of the story which dealt with a lot of her inner turmoil, which wasn't exactly page turning.
I don't think the series is completely over. I think he'll write another trilogy in the future but from Jason's daughter's point of view. I think the hint is there in the text and I think there are some loose ends he needs to tie up with Ebera.

Brandon Mull has delivered a heart wrenching finale to the Beyonders series, with 'Chasing The Prophecy'.

The feels, is what I'll really say about that.
Rachel and Jason face many struggles in the fight against Maldor, and these struggles, both physical and emotional, shape them for the final battle against Maldor, in hopes that standing with Galloran to save Lyria, was not in vain.

Absolutely a series worth buying for your household collection folks, with a strong start, and eventful middle and

What a great way to end the series! I really liked how he incoporated different aspects of the prophecy into the book. I will have to say I thought the ending would have been reversed, but I still liked it.

I didn't realize that this series was the first book he wrote as an author, it just didn't get published before Fablehaven. I've loved every series I've read of him so far!

Okay... I'm a little bit torn between 3 stars and 4. But I ended up giving it 4 stars because overall, I really did like this book. And that's what 4 stars means "really liked it". BUT...

There were parts of this book that just seemed to go on and on. I actually had two pages stuck together at one point. Thought my brain had misinterpreted a word or two, but I kept reading. It still made sense. A little odd, but not much had changed. After a page of reading I turned back to see what I had messed
