Chasing the Prophecy by Brandon Mull (review by Kai A. ’17)

Chasing the Prophecy (Beyonders, #3)Chasing the Prophecy by Brandon Mull
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

When transported magically from Earth to Lyrian, Jason and Rachel simply wanted to return home. They have been flung into a dire and seemingly hopeless conflict against the evil tyrant and wizard Maldor. The improbability of victory is repeatedly expressed, so much so that it gets tiring. Still, when the action gets going, the book becomes fast-paced and adventurous. Mull not only does well in depicting the battles, but he also describes Jason and Rachel’s coming of age as well as the sense of unification and sacrifice. Mull plants the beginnings of a new plot at the end of the last book of the trilogy, rendering the conclusion to the main plot unsatisfying. In summary, this novel is decent but probably not Mull’s best, a slightly disappointing end to a good series. – Kai A. ‘17
