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.

So my friend recommended this book to me and it was super good. I would recommend this to you if you liked the Percy Jackson series and the Artemis Fowl series. The book could have some improvement but it was still really good. I will read the 2nd book sometime later because I don't really feel like reading it.
It felt amazing reading these books I finished all the books like in a month as once you start reading you cant stop even though you want to the curiousty kills you from inside.
Brandon Mull really mastered yet another series. I'll give it four stars. If your looking for an intricate plot, original story, well rounded characters, and long nights of not being able to put the book down, then this is the book for you.
WOW! What a great series! This 5 book series is by Brandon Mull. He is an amazing author! once i started reading the first book, I couldn't stop! Its about a kid and his friends that go to a haunted house for Halloween. But later they find out that its not a haunted house it's a mass kidnapping! The kidnappers take the kids to a land called the outskirts. "The outskirts of where?" you might ask. The answer is... no one knows. even the ones who have been there for decades can't solve that one. Does Cole save his friends from the evil high king of the land? Or does he start his own life there with his new friends, Mira, Jace, and Twich?
I decided to read this book because I liked the cover. It is a really good book.
AMAZING!!! But there should be a follow up series where because he went voluntarily he and the people that got involved are sucked back to the outskirts because they need help again. Jace and Mira should end up together and Cole and Jenna should have some kind of fight or something also. But Earth should be destroyed and everyone moves to the outskirts after a long horrible world and discover more unique powers. Any of this would be amazing, even maybe Cole has a daughter who's sucked into the outskirts but everyone who got involved suddenly remembers. Cole's daughter would have even greater powers. But if Cole and the others do come back they should all of a sudden be young again, the series is amazing and i hope it can continue!
A bit slower than fablehaven but still great book tons of action i hope you enjoy it! cole, the main character smarter than seth in fableaven get's stuck in a different univeerse and hes trying to get out.
I like this gamut because it is fiction and has a lot of action in it . I am reading the second one now this gamut will make you want to read more of his books. Brandon Mull is A very talented author. I am excited to read his other series.
