Beyonders: A World Without Heroes by Brandon Mull, author of other popular books, such as Candy Shop Wars and Fablehaven. It is a fantasy trilogy, and the first the book takes place in current times, and it is mostly set in the land of Lyrian, a world much different than our own. The book is about the adventures of Jason, an average teenager, who one day, finds himself in a Lyrian and he is now stuck in this strange new world.Brandon Mull does an amazing job at conveying emotion between characters, and describing how the characters feel. He also did very well with dialogue, although sometimes it felt like the characters could have had deeper backstories, I thought that the characters he had created could have been right in front of me, they were very realistic. He also did an amazing job at describing settings, and some of my favorite were the lair of the monster and the solid sea. He also made everything very interesting, and I couldn’t put the book down. The story is also amazing, Mull did a great job. Even though there were some flashbacks in the story, for the most part it was very linear and easy to understand.
Everything was projected very well, and each character had their own story to tell. Over all, I would give this book an 8/10. The book was very well detailed, the best part of the book was the characters, as they were all very different and not generic at all. The only problem I had with the book was that sometimes the plot got confusing with flashbacks, but re-reading a few pages helped fix this. I would say that this book is a must read, especially if you’re a fan of fantasy.
