The magic begins again as bestselling author Brandon Mull brings his newest blockbuster-ready fantasy series directly to Aladdin! Jason Walker lives a predictable life: going to school, playing baseball, volunteering at the local zoo—until one day he falls through a tunnel near the hippo tank and ends up in a new, utterly foreign world. In Lyrian, the people dress differently, behave differently, and all live in fear of their malicious Emperor, Surroth. But in Jason’s search for a way home, he learns of a magical, ancient word that could destroy the terrifying Surroth. With his accidental knowledge of one of the word’s six syllables, Jason finds himself in great danger and must embark on an epic quest to discover the remaining syllables and take down his powerful new enemy. Jason and his companion, Rachel—a fellow Beyonder who also arrived in Lyrian suddenly and without understanding why—must face challenges to their bodies, minds, and hearts and encounter places and people they can barely believe are real. In a world with no heroes, and no hope, Jason finds himself faced with the prospect of becoming the hero he never imagined he could be.

A World Without Heroes is more of a 3.5 book for me. The main idea for the story was quite interesting as well as the characters. But I wasn't entirely hooked by this book. I often felt like some scenes were made longer for no purpose at all and then, there was A LOT of action to make up for it. Tha...

3.0 A World Without Heroes (Beyonders Series #1)
Probably closer to 3.5 stars.It took me a bit to get into this book - the prologue in particular made me wonder if I should even bother reading on, filled as it was with said-bookisms. I don't even know if it was a deliberate stylistic choice or whether the prologue escape all the editors, as the re...
