3.0 out of 5 stars Great start but got dreadful the more I read 14 Aug 2012
By Anne
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Learn what the word hero means, you gave a brief small close description, but you missed out the fact that almost every hero is no where near as dense or useless as Jason. He can't do anything at all. Had great promise but got worse as i read. Jack

5.0 out of 5 stars More than delightful, and more real than fantasy implies 16 Mar 2012
By Carolyn Hoefer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As I read Seeds of Rebellion for the first time, I kept encountering the same themes that entwined themselves into my character when I read The Lord of the Rings (repeatedly) as a teenager. It seems that many answers to life's challenges within the pages of a great fantasy novel, and I don't mean that disconnect from reality that comes from walking through Middle Earth or Lyrian as your imagination grows with the story. I mean things like learning that the best way out of a problem is through it, that "Despair is only for those who see the end beyond all doubt," (Gandalf), and that integrity is stronger than fear of power.

WIthout taking anything away from The Lord of the Rings, I think Beyonders will probably reach a wider audience while passing the same worthwhile values on to a generation that faces more darkness than mine ever did, give them the tools they need to be strong when things look tough - and have a good time doing it, if they develop the kind of humor Brandon Mull's characters display when faced with theirs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic Middle Reader Fantasy 15 Mar 2012
By SciFiChick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Jason is back home, after returning from his adventures in Lyrian. But knowing Rachel is still there and in possible danger, Jason manages to cross back to Lyrian the same way he got there last time - through the mouth of a hippo. Meanwhile, Rachel is developing her magical talents, and it's soon apparent she has more potential than anyone thought possible. The two Beyonders must eventually meet up with the Blind King and start a quest to bring together sympathetic kingdoms to rebel against Maldor.

Second in the Beyonders trilogy that began with A World Without Heroes, Seeds of Rebellion brings back many familiar characters as well as some new that quickly became favorites. Mull's creative world of Lyrian has a fantastic array of unique races, some familiar with a new twist. A favorite character is Ferrin, a displacer who can remove body parts at will without harm, who is completely honest about his traitorous tendencies yet wants to remain loyal to Jason.

This quality epic fantasy is geared towards a younger crowd but can be enjoyed by readers of all ages. A quest-based fantasy, the adventure is even-paced and woven with complexity. Plenty of mystery, suspense, magic, and humor make this sequel even more enjoyable than the first. As a fan of Mull's Fablehaven series, I can't get enough of his bold characters, amazing worldbuilding, and quality storytelling. The novel ends with a cliffhanger and plenty of build-up that will leave readers with high expectations for the third and final installment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Book 13 Mar 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Jason's home, but it's getting pretty boring being home, and he can't forget about Rachel, mostly because her parents are doing such a great job keeping her disappearance in the media. He feels bad that he can't share with them that she's okay. Jason keeps going back to the zoo and visiting the hippo in the hopes that the same gateway to Lyrian will open for him again, but he hasn't had any luck. Until one day, he's staring at the hippo when the little boy next to him remarks about the music that he's hearing. Jason hadn't even noticed the music to this point, but as soon as the little boy talked about it, he knew exactly who was playing the music, Tark. He jumps into the water and...nothing. The hippo doesn't seemed inclined to open his mouth, even with Jason beating it. Jason swims to the top of the water, where all the spectators tell him that he's crazy to be in the water with the hippo, and all of a sudden the hippo opens his mouth and swallows him, again. Thus begins Jason's second journey to Lyrian. It will of course be fraught with all kinds of danger, from spies, and lurkers to zombies and of course, Maldor. This was an amazing book! I love the worlds and all the crazy characters that Brandon Mull has imagined. I thought that this book was better than the first of this series. I enjoyed all the action and the suspense. I enjoyed the way the book ended and the way that the ending seems as though good will always conquer evil.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait...but hurry with Book Three! 9 April 2012
By Mom of Twodaloo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Once again, Brandon Mull has created a fantasy world that his readers can become lost in. As a huge fan of the Fablehaven series, I was excited when the first Beyonders book was released, and was not disappointed. Before Seeds of Rebellion came out, I reread World Without Heroes and enjoyed it even more the second time. Jason and Rachel continue their quest to destroy Maldor and, with an entourage of characters who return from the first book as well as several newly introduced characters, they embark on a Lord of the Rings-esque endeavor. A fast paced, page-turner, I finished this book in just a couple of days. The only con is that it will be a full year before I can read the conclusion.

3.0 out of 5 stars Seeds of Rebellion: The Problem with Sequels 15 July 2012
By Kendra - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Remember the first time you saw "Jurassic Park?" Remember the scene when Ellie and Alan are first on the island, riding in the jeep and Ellie is preoccupied with the leaf of some giant plant, trying to figure out how it could possibly exist? The jeep slows to a stop and Alan stands slowly, his hands trembling as he pulls off his sunglasses. He reaches for Ellie's head and turns her so she can see what he is seeing. It is their first glimpse and our first glimpse of the dinosaurs of Jurassic Park.

At the time, the special effects were so convincing, it felt like we were there with Ellie and Alan that we too were experiencing that joy at seeing something no one had seen in millions of years.

It is the beauty of discovering a new world and it is why sequels to such movies or books often pale in comparison. The new has worn off.

I felt that way reading Brandon Mull's "Seeds of Rebellion," the second in his Beyonders series. I had first discovered Mull in reading his Fablehaven series, a series I feel he ended too soon and so when he started a new series with "A World without Heroes," I was all on board. In general I have not enjoyed the Beyonders series as much as I did Fablehaven. I still highly recommend each book in the Fablehaven series.

The Beyonders series begins with "A World without Heroes" and without spoiling too much, follows two Beyonders--kids from our world--as they travel to a new and mystical land. The plot revolves around finding different syllables to a word that will destroy an evil wizard. Again, hopefully without too much spoilage, said word plays a part in the sequel too.

Brandon Mull excels at world building, perhaps not with the finesse or sheer joy that J.K. Rowling brings to her novels, but stunning in its own ways. Mull creates creatures like Lurkers, murderous shades and Displacers, who can remove body parts at will. His world includes half giants and in "Seeds of Rebellion," even zombies.

In the first book, Jason was the primary focus and in "Seeds of Rebellion," Mull seems to want to focus more on Rachel who is discovering new found powers. But the primary flaw of this novel is the overabundance of characters. I had a hard time keeping up with them or even remembering the ones from the last book. When certain characters died, I had a hard time caring because Mull had not spent sufficient time making me care about them. I wasn't invested in their lives.

The other problem with "Seeds of Rebellion" is that is seems like too much of a transitional novel, a book meant only to get characters to certain points so something big could happen in a later book. There was some action, but mostly characters spend far too much time talking, and, as I said before, really fascinating characters like Aram are built up in the beginning only to disappear in the crowd as Mull adds more and more new people.

Still, it's a good enough series to stick with and I do want to know what happens next.
