Synopses & Reviews
Bestselling author Brandon Mull brings his newest blockbuster-ready fantasy series to Simon & Schuster Audio!
Jason Walker lives a predictable life: going to school, playing baseball, volunteering at the local zoo—until one day he falls through a tunnel near the hippo tank and ends up in a new, utterly different world. In Lyrian, the people dress differently, behave differently, and all live in fear of their malicious Emperor, Surroth. But in Jason’s search for a way home, he learns of a magical, ancient word that could destroy the terrifying Surroth.
With his accidental knowledge of one of the word’s six syllables, Jason finds himself in great danger and must embark on an epic quest to discover the remaining syllables and take down his powerful new enemy. Jason and his companion, Rachel—a fellow Beyonder who also arrived in Lyrian suddenly and without understanding why—must face challenges to their bodies, minds, and hearts and encounter places and people they can barely believe are real.
In a world with no heroes, and no hope, Jason finds himself faced with the prospect of becoming the hero he never imagined he could be.
"Brandon Mull is a wizard with words. With Beyonders, he has conjured one of the most original fantasies I've read in years—an irresistible mix of adventure, humor, and magic." —Rick Riordan, author of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series
“Mull elevates the genre, pairing humorous and imaginative scenarios with intelligence and well-written dialogue . . . With "Beyonders," Mull has taken the tried-and-true quest genre and reinvigorated it with a dense but extremely well-written follow-up to his bestselling "Fablehaven" series.”
--Los Angeles Times
