After the cliffhanger ending of A World Without Heroes, Jason
is back in the world he’s always known—yet for all his efforts to get
home, he finds himself itching to return to Lyrian. Jason knows that the
shocking truth he learned from Maldor is precious information that all
of his friends in Lyrian, including Rachel, need if they have any hope
of surviving and defeating the evil emperor.
and the others have discovered new enemies—as well as new abilities that
could turn the tide of the entire quest. And as soon as Jason succeeds
in crossing over to Lyrian, he’s in more danger than ever. Once the
group reunites, they strive to convince their most-needed ally to join
the war and form a rebellion strong enough to triumph over Maldor. At
the center of it all, Jason and Rachel realize what roles they’re meant
to play—and the answers are as surprising as they are gripping.
Excerpt taken from Goodreads.com
By the time I got to this book, I was over my hang up with it being so different from Fablehaven. Brandon has a way of writing sequels that blow the previous ones away and this book was no exception. I don't want to give anything away but I love the double meaning that the title has. This book is a huge game changer. Information from the first book takes on a completely new twist and I was pleasantly surprised by directions I hadn't even thought of.
I am not sure if Brandon did this in Fablehaven, but I noticed that each of his protagonists (more Jason since he is clearly the main protagonist) voices their doubts. This helps them pick the path to what they believe is just and correct.
I would definitely recommend this book!
