The sequel to #1 New York Times bestselling Beyonders is now out and on the shelf. Beyonders: Seeds of Rebellion is sure to please just as much – if not more than – the first book. Brandon Mull, author of the Fablehaven series, knows his genre well, and is quickly becoming a master of storytelling.
Lis’ take on Beyonders: When I read the first book in the series, I was a little skeptical. I love youth fantasy fiction, and the book started out slow. However, as I read on, I was drawn further and further into a tale of a kid who unwittingly enters a magical world through the mouth of a hippo and is set on the path of becoming a hero.
– Book summary: In Seeds of Rebellion, Jason Walker, hero of the first book, needs to find a way back to Lyrian. His friend 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.
