If you loved Fablehaven you will..........not know what to think of this. Haha. What I mean by that is that it is nothing like Mull's fantasy series about fairies and demonic creatures. This is very akin to Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. It's about a normal teen boy who falls into a whole (not following a rabbit with a pocket watch believe it or not) and enters a world that he never knew existed. This world is quite medieval...but not in the past oddly. But the one semi-mod ...more

The Beyonders is a fantasy book that is about a boy name Jason a normal kid that plays baseball for his school, and a rich Girl named Racheal that is homeschooled and is smarter than the average teenager. These two teenagers find themselves trapped in an unknown world.
Jason is swallowed by a magic hippo that somehow leads him to an unkonwn land called Lyrian, and the only way out is to destroy the evil Maldor. Maldor is a tyrant that has controlled Lyrian forever. Along the begin

For what they are, middle school age books, they do a good job of giving a story that is fairly complex and mature. Obviously, compared to adult books, they feel very naive and simple, but they aren't really meant to be compared. It is a standard boy and girl get transported to another world and have to become its saviors, especially since no one in that world wants to stand up against the evil magical emperor Maldor, who has killed all the other wizards who might stand up to him.

In the first book Jason and Rachel go and try to find a secret word to destroy Maldor who is an evil emporor.

Loved Brandon Mull's Fablehaven Series and was happy to find this other series by accident at the library. Great read, intriguing story line. There were so many unexpected twists and turns throughout this 3 book series that I only wish it had gone on longer! I think there is easily enough material to continue on to at least one more book if the author ever wished to really tie off all loose ends.

I have never read a better series. SERIOUSLY!!!! Best book ever. I truly love Brandon Mull. He is a true wizard of words. His integration of bravery, action, adventure, and mystery was enough to leave the harshest critics biting their nails with anticipation. I loved the mystical world of Lyrian. The conquest of Jason and Rachel, among with their friends, was only rivaled by the extreme wickedness of Maldor and his minions. Truly never has a book as this kept me up all night, unable to resist th ...more

This fantasy series was perfect. It was engaging with great characters and plot line. I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys fantasy and LOTR type books. I read the first two and listened to the third.

The very beginning of this book peeked my interest and then it quickly lost my interest. I pushed through and was rewarded with a really entertaining series.

I didn't think the villain was as good as Fablehaven's, but still a solid romp.

The series 'Beyonders', by Brandon Mull, starts with 'A World Without Heroes', a delightful book that introduces witty characters, large, yet straight-forward plots schemes, and lots of surprises. It leaves you wondering what the rest of the series will be all about.
Book 2, 'Seeds of Rebellion', is where things start heating up. The pacing is immaculate, the situations so mind-puzzling, you never know how Brandon Mull will weasel his way out, but he does every time in ways that will make your b

As a FANBOY of the Fablehaven quintilogy(?), I was a little anxious about this series. Fablehaven was so vivid, imaginative, and bloody FUN, with a nice dark streak running right through it, how could any other series hope to compare? And so with lowered expectations I marched off to the library and gave it a go. Yet even with lowered expectations, Beyonders #1 seems really generic to me. Yep, there's a dark wizard. Yes, they wear old-timey clothes and there's no technology. You already knew wha ...more

Mull did a fantastic job crafting a believable fantasy world for a childrens' book series. A lot of detail and history were included throughout, which really pulled the reader (or at least myself) into the series. I found that there were some very Lord-of-The-Rings-esque elements, mainly in the second book.

This series would be perfect for early teens, but it still could be suitable for older kids, maybe even adults. At times it has a juvenile feel to it, but then there are some dark moments tha

I liked Brandon Mull's world of Lyrian very much. It was not a superficial world and went much deeper than I expected. But I found the lack of emotional connection to the characters and the events made it somewhat hard to get through. Granted it is written for thirteen year-olds, but I don't see that that has anything to do with it. Jason is a likable hero and Rachel, too. Jasher is probably my favorite. It seemed to me, though, with all the references to our world (movies, etc.) made it kind of ...more

Brandon Mull is a fantastic storyteller. I checked out Beyonders because I have an intense and almost manic love for Fablehaven, so I figured I should also read his other works. You can tell that Mull wrote these books; his same witty sense of humor appears along with his love of gut punching plot twists and joyful exuberance in his own world-building. However, it should be noted that Beyonders is MUCH darker than Fablehaven. That's not a bad thing, just something to be aware of, especially if y ...more

For the first half of the first book of the trilogy I wondered what all the raves were about. Our brave hero goes on a quest, and that leads to another quest, and that leads to another. Then Mull turned the plot on its head and I was hooked.

The books are fun. The races are original--as my son wrote, "I wish I had thought of displacers." The humor will keep you smiling. All the elements of the story fit together. At least one character kept me guessing until the end. The trilogy is a satisfying r

I am not a huge fan of fantasy books...but I decided to try this series just for the heck of it and I LOVED THESE BOOKS! Each one in the series is better than the next, and I almost cried at the end when I finished them. The two main characters, Jason and Rachel, have strong personalities that many people can relate to. The journey you follow them in keeps you holding your breath and holds a smile on your face whether you want it or not. Brandon Mull has created a page-turning wonder of a trilog ...more

This perfectly planned page-turner is truly hard to put down. Brandon Mull does a great job creating the world Lyrian, and the magical characters inside of it. The adventure takes your mind through the world of Lyrian, and helps you connect you with the characters as if you were their friends. Also, to add to the adventurous mood, many mysteries and heart stopping twists add up to a crazy finish. Please pick up this book, but I warn you, you may never put it down!

I wish I could give this 4.5. It was still a touch to simple for a 5, but I felt it had a bit more depth than Fablehaven, so I would like to have rated it a little higher with out putting it on the shelf with the best books I've ever read. Like most YA fiction, it doesn't really transcend the YA genre in content or writing style, but it's still a fast paced, entertaining series.

I love Fantasy series, and from the first book I knew Beyonders would be a series I could read and re-read. It is definitely in my top 10, and maybe in my top 5 favorite fantasy series. It is fast paced, with characters I'd love to meet and some of the most original locations and story twists I can remember reasoning in a log time.

This book series had me interested from start to finish. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and felt like I could relate to their struggles and rejoice in their triumphs. Good read for everyone in the family. Great writing that did not get monotonous as sometimes occurs with trilogies. Loved it!!!

Our family reads books together. We read this series because we had really enjoyed Mull's Fablehaven series. I was not taken with this series at first. I liked it a bit more with the second book. By the third, I wished the serried would continue.
Steven Kevin T Tan
Amazing, so sad to say farewell to this series :(

I liked how it all unfolded. My favorite part is most definitely Nedwin's ending. I came here thinking the violence won't be that brutal, but it actually was at certain parts and I, the sadist in me, loved it.
Jay Denton
Interesting series. By the end all the rhetorical questions and ethical dilemmas get a little old. I suppose I shouldn't complain because it is targeted to kids, but I don't remember getting so frustrated with the redundancies in his other series. (Fablehaven and Candy Shop Wars)

If I can expect the same escalation in quality I got from the Fablehaven series I'll need a rating higher than five stars. Brandon Mull has the best imagination of any writer I've read save J.K. Rowling. I can't give a higher compliment. This makes completely makes up for Five Kingdoms.

Updated review. I had read only the first book, initially. The entire series is compelling. This an imaginative and memorable read, with characters that live on in your mind long after the story is finished. Loved it!
