Jason tumbles into a quest to save a magical in this #1 New York Times bestselling start to Brandon Mull’s Beyonders fantasy series.

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 welcomed 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.

Great Book
August 21st, 2014
Over the last decade I've developed a great love for sword and sorcerey type books where people ride horses, wear tunics and eat in taverns. But as of late I've found it challenging to find a book that really keeps my interest. A World Without Heroes did just that. It had a touch of the modern world yet kept all the elements of fantasy that I love. It has a wonderfully developed world with captivating creatures and ideas and the protagonist is a person who I found very likeable. I can't wait to read the next one. Going to the kobo store to buy it right now!

It is pretty good, there are some parts that could be better. The whole plot is about the main character getting transported into a parallel universe and he is trying to get home. This is a great book for kids and is by the same author as Fablehaven!
