Publisher's Summary

The number-one New York Times best-selling 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.

Book 3 - Lots of battles

This is one book broken into three parts... so don't start with this. Book 3 is my least favorite, although I wouldn't have stopped at 2. It is written for YA and because of the extensive violence during wars and battles it would not be a good read for younger children. The last book is darker than the end of Harry Potter series. Many of the main characters die in some pretty icky ways in the overcoming of evil. Although the plot had a predictable ending, getting there had some interesting turns. There is violence but it comes with positive messages of sacrificing for a cause, working as a team, being faithful to friends, not ignoring evil, taking a stand for right...

Perfect closing to an amazing story

This book was one of the best closings I have ever read. It was fast-paced and intense nearly the entire time.

I love the fantasy genre. One critique I generally have is the author never knows how to handle its characters' super powers. For example, a character may know how to control people's minds, but doing so would end the conflict - so instead the author has the character cause a tree branch to rustle so the character can make an escape. Not so in this book. The characters are very resourceful and creative.

Also, in Brandon Mull's other books, his adolescent characters did not fit their age. In all aspects his characters should have been in their 20s, (size, strength, comprehension, etc). However, in this book his characters were perfect. The story was very creative and believable. I loved it.
