On Order



The #1 New York Times bestselling Beyonders fantasy trilogy comes to a stunning and epic conclusion.

Jason and Rachel were not born in Lyrian. They did not grow up in Lyrian. But after all of the battles and losses, the triumphs and adventures, and most of all, the friendships forged in this fantastical world, Lyrian has become home to them in a way they never could have imagined.

And so, armed now with the prophecy of a dying oracle, they have gone on their separate quests-each surrounded by brave and powerful allies-knowing that the chance for success is slim. But Jason and Rachel are ready at last to become the heroes Lyrian needs, no matter the cost.


Brandon Mull presents the next installment in the Beyonders series.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-8-In the third title (Aladdin, 2013) of Mull's series, Jason and Rachael are on two different quests given to them by the Oracle in order to save Lyrian from the evil emperor, Maldor. Jason and his friends, Aram and Corinne, set out to Windbreak Island to find a scroll in the Celestine Library that will lead them to Darian the Seer's secret abode. There, Jason hopes to find information that will help bring down the emperor. Meanwhile, Rachel sets out to Trensicourt along with Galloran, Ferrin, Nedwin, and a few others in order to take back Galloran's rightful throne and find willing volunteers to help conquer Felrook, the home of the evil emperor. Both quests are vital and depend on the other's success. The Oracle warned that her prophecy was the only chance for victory. Although Jeremy Bobb's narration of action scenes at the beginning seems to lack some intensity, he quickly draws listeners into the world of Lyrian with his use of different, entertaining voices that masterfully capture each character's personality and quirks. The pacing is good and the narrator's transitions between scenes and changing points of view are smooth. Those who have read the other books in the series and like action-filled fantasy adventure will enjoy the final volume in the trilogy.-Kira Moody, Whitmore Public Library, Salt Lake City, UT (c) Copyright 2013.

Horn Book Review

In this trilogy ender, Rachel, Jason, and company quest to end Maldor's despotic reign over Lyrian. Mull takes the plot device of the prophecy to an extreme: with every move mapped out in advance by an oracle, the characters struggle to set aside their doubts, taking risks on faith alone. The result is an action-packed (if telegraphed), plot-driven adventure that meditates on trust and sacrifice. (c) Copyright 2013. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Booklist Review

Jason and Rachel, teens who entered Lyrian by chance in A World without Heroes (2011) and stayed to fight for its inhabitants' freedom from the emperor in Seeds of Rebellion (2012), now risk their lives to fulfill the prophecy that offers the only gleam of hope. Those who enjoyed the many action scenes in the previous books will find plenty here as well, though the characters also spend a good deal of time in reflection and conversation. The question of whether to trust the prophecy looms large. While this volume concludes the Beyonders series, Mull leaves the door open for another series set in Lyrian.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2010 Booklist
