Jason Walker has often wished his life could be a bit less predictable--until a routine day at the zoo ends with Jason suddenly transporting from the hippo tank to a place unlike anything he's ever seen. In the past, the people of Lyrian welcmoed visitors from the Beyond, but attitudes have changed since the wizard emperor Maldor rose to power. The brave resistors who opposed the emperor have been bought off or broken, leaving a realm where fear and suspicion prevail.
In his search for a way home, Jason meets Rachel, who was also mysteriously drawn to Lyrian from our world. With the help of a few scattered rebels, Jason and Rachel become entangled in a quest to piece together the word of power that can destroy the emperor, and learn that their best hope to find a way home will be to save this world without heroes.

My rating: 5 of 5

My thoughts on the book:
I loved, loved this book! I loved everything about it: the story, the characters, the writing style, everything! I was captured from the beginning of the book until the very end! It's really great adventurous fantasy, that's suitable for all ages, that's fun & humorous & with lots of action and I can't wait for the sequel! In the meantime, I think I'll finally pick up Brandon Mull's Fablehaven series. Because I read it from galley, I'll definitely buy it & read it again & again. I highly recommend this book to every fantasy fan!

  1. I have not read anything by this author although I have heard Fablehaven is very good. I will have to look into this book as I do love fantasy and adventure.
