PRAISE FOR BRANDON MULL’S BOOKS

“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 series, on
A World Without Heroes

“The Fablehaven books … kept me turning the pages until 4:40 in the morning. Each book was better than the last!”

—CHRISTOPHER PAOLINI,

author of the Eragon series, on Fablehaven

“Like Harry Potter, Fablehaven looks like a book for kids, but, like Harry Potter, Fablehaven can be read aloud in a family with as much pleasure for grown-ups as for children.”

—ORSON SCOTT CARD,

author of
Ender’s Game
,
on Fablehaven

 

JASON WALKER
needs to find a way back to Lyrian. Rachel remains stranded there, and Jason has precious information that the friends he left behind must learn in order to have any hope of surviving and defeating the evil emperor Maldor.

When he finally succeeds in returning to the strange and imperiled world, Jason immediately finds himself in more danger than ever as the most wanted fugitive on the continent. Meanwhile, Rachel has begun to discover new abilities of her own that may prove vital against Maldor’s tyranny.

In the aftermath of a failed quest, a new mission arises—to assemble the remaining heroes of Lyrian. Can the necessary allies be convinced before the emperor crushes the young uprising? Jason, Rachel, and their band of battered heroes will face new enemies and demanding obstacles as they strive to launch a desperate rebellion. Don’t miss the second book in Brandon Mull’s #1
New York Times
bestselling saga.
