Waiting On Wednesday #3

Sky Raiders -

Genre - Middle Grade Fantasy
Publication date - March 11

Description(from Goodreads)

Adventure awaits in the Five Kingdoms come and claim it in this start to a new series from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Fablehaven and Beyonders series.

Cole Randolph was just trying to have a fun time with his friends on Halloween (and maybe get to know Jenna Hunt a little better). But when a spooky haunted house turns out to be a portal to something much creepier, Cole finds himself on an adventure on a whole different level. 

After Cole sees his friends whisked away to some mysterious place underneath the haunted house, he dives in after them and ends up in The Outskirts. The Outskirts are made up of five kingdoms that lie between wakefulness and dreaming, reality and imagination, life and death. It's an in-between place. Some people are born there. Some find their way there from our world, or from other worlds. 

And once you come to the Outskirts, it's very hard to leave. 

With the magic of the Outskirts starting to unravel, it's up to Cole and an unusual girl named Mira to rescue his friends, set things right in the Outskirts, and hopefully find his way back home before his existence is forgotten.

I have read both the Beyonders and Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull and I must say that while I do think Fablehaven is better than Beyonders, he is one of my all time favorite authors and I can not wait for this book. I actually met him at Comic-Con, two years in a row, and I got a little chapter preview of this book and it looks so awesome. it's pitched as being more for fans of Fablehaven over Beyonders which makes me so happy. The only thing that could be better is if it was a second Fablehaven series instead. If you've never read anything of Brandon Mull's you are seriously missing out and I highly suggest that you rectify the situation.

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?
