  • I am a big fan of Brandon Mull and eagerly jumped into this new story. And let me say there is great creativity and some interesting concepts - love the sundial/moondial, and the whole special puzzle lock to the library was cool!

    Is the story slow? Yes. For example, the endless excerpts the main character, Jason, reads from the Abridged History of Lyrian. Mull seems to ignore the old writing adage of "show don't tell". Even reading the rolling credits of a movie might actually have been more interesting.

    Do I even care about the constantly-at-each-other's-throats-for-no-reason-at-all-angst between Rachel and Jason? Nope.

    It's apparent that in this book, character development, and even plot has taken a back seat to Mull's new main objective: Blood, Guts and Gore, with perhaps a side interest in making his medieval setting shine.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm all about a good battle scene with details when the story warrants it. And if there be some blood along the way, I'm fine with that. But this book has jumped the master storytelling ship that we all know Mull is capable of captaining. Instead, Beyonders goes beyond all bounds of plot and character, and forces us to do nothing but swim in a swamp of gore. Personally I'd really rather be sailing in the ship, but Mull insists I stay in this swamp.

    And so this book brings on the horror: Don't believe me? Check out a few quotes below (and no I don't give any spoilers). How many times do I need to be told something is gory? Apparently a lot when horror is center stage, and not the story.

    "The parlor was a disaster. Furniture splintered, everything spattered with gore, tattered bits of fabric clinging to the walls and ceiling. . . The Gamester produced a bloody rag from inside his cloak, unfolding it to reveal part of a severed hand wearing a gray, fingerless glove." page 102

    "Jason panted, watching in mesmerized horror as the crab returned to the gory remains of the boarhound and began dissecting the corpse in a fenzy. . . He [Jason] didn't expect to get the image of the dog's violent death out of his head anytime soon." page 141

    Jason can't get that violent death of the dog out of his head, nor will any kids who love animals either. The blood, guts, and horror are super hyped and just not necessary. It is written in such intense gory detail that I believe all thought to the emotional makeup of his readers (which are kids by the way) was forgotten in the goal of making this story horrific.

    This book is billed by another of my favorite authors, Rick Riordan, on the front cover as being "An irresistible mix of adventure, humor, and magic." Not sure what early pre-press version Riordan read, but this final version of Beyonders includes very little humor. I would rather Mull spent more time on story, and less delving into the bloody swamp. Sadly the shreds of Mull's storytelling magic are brutally bludgeoned by his persistence to have " . . .everything spattered with gore . . ." (p102)

  • I bought this book because I enjoyed the Fablehaven series so much, I couldn't put them down. I agree with other readers that this one took a while to get moving. I read somewhere that most people give books a hundred pages or so to hook them before they put them down for good. This one cut it close but i stuck with it because I knew that some of the Fablehaven books also took a little while to get started but were worth it in the end.

    I liked the interesting concepts in the book, the idea of the Eternal Feast and how the author explored what an effective way that would be for an evil emperor to control his adversaries. I thought the wizard-born races were also interesting, the notion of many lives for the Aman Kabul and the detachable parts of the displacers were also neat. The alternate world the characters arrive in was fun and i liked all of the detail that the author gave us about it.

    I have to admit I kind of lost track of who the supporting cast were, the Drakes and Tarks and others started to run together for me. Not a big deal, but I felt like i missed something because I couldn't remember who was who a lot of the time. In the author's defense, I'm a grown up so i have to put the book down sometimes for days at a time. This may not have been an issue for the target age group who can probably read the whole book in a week or two.

    My biggest complaint with this book was the ending--or lack of one. In the Fablehaven series each book had a quest and a complete story that tied to the other ones. The first book in the Beyonders series is just the first third of a story. It just stops abruptly in the middle of a chapter and the next thing you know you are reading acknowledgements. I know that these days every book that gets published has to be part of a 10 book series, but I at least would like to get some sort of closure in each book. To me, if you are going to write a single, linear story and just break it up into 23 books it should be captivating and suspenseful enough to keep the reader engaged, this one just wasn't for me. After 500 pages, the characters in this story don't really know, or understand what has happened. That was disappointing for me.

    I wanted to love this book, but i don't think I'll read the next one. Since I know it's not going to be the last book in the series I also know it will be another "to be continued..." ending.
