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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Brandon Mull has done it again…The Five Kingdoms series starter plunges us into a refreshing new realm where monsters, magic, and surprises seem to be the rule of the day. A Barnes & Noble editor’s recommendation.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “Although Mull packs quite a bit into this initial installment, he skillfully mixes the capricious logic of dreams with high stakes and constant danger. The intriguing premise, strong world building, and numerous twists make this a real page-turner.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “The plot contains many twists and turns, but each new encounter is fashioned to outdo the previous one.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Everyman Cole doesn’t know much about the fantastical, flying-castle-filled Outskirts, but he’s ready for adventure and eager to learn. Mull’s ample world building only adds even more dimension to Cole’s noble quest. Mull has a built-in audience for this new fantasy adventure series, and fans of the Fablehaven and Beyonders series will not be disappointed.”


  • “The creator of the Fablehaven series gets his newest venture off to a literal flying start…Mull gives his protagonist opportunities aplenty to demonstrate courage, quick wit, and a talent for teasing. He also lays inventive twists on magical gear and workings and crafts such oddball monsters and settings that even a native-born character complains at one point, ‘I keep waiting for this to get less weird, and it keeps not happening.’ From the evidence, readers may consider that a promise from the author. Sequels are certain, and they should be welcomed by all who like plenty of ‘odd’ in their odysseys.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Keith Nobbs’ narrative style is a perfect match for Mull’s latest fantasy adventure. When a group of unsuspecting sixth graders, led by Cole, visits Spooky Lane on Halloween, they’re kidnapped and taken to another dimension, where they’re sold into slavery. Nobbs captures the essence of each character so thoroughly that listeners will feel like they’re old friends, especially Cole, whose voice spans the emotional spectrum, giving him a true heroic presence. Also notable is the chipper tone of the talking Happy Face. Nobbs nimbly navigates the story’s roller-coaster pace. His dynamic performance is amplified by expertly timed sound effects and booming monster voices, all of which sets a high standard for future installments.”
