Keeping Up With Brandon Mull

If you haven't had enough Mull lately, hang in there! Here are three exciting dates:

Tuesday, Oct. 23: Shadow Mountain Publishing releases the long-awaited sequel to The Candy Shop War: Arcade Catastrophe. Here's a synopsis from the publisher:

"In The Candy Shop War, friends Nate, Summer, Trevor, and Pigeon met the evil magician Belinda White, whose magical confections enabled the kids to do incredible feats of strength and magic. In the sequel, Nate and his friends meet Mrs. White's brother -- Mr. White -- who owns Arcadeland, a local amusement center.

At Arcadeland, kids can play games and earn thousands of tickets, which are redeemable for one of four kinds of stamps -- jets, tanks, subs, and race cars. Could it be true that these stamps allow kids to fly through the air? Or breathe underwater? Or run faster than a car? But Mr. White is hiding a secret: when all four clubs are filled, he will be able to retrieve perhaps the most powerful talisman ever. For Nate and his friends, it will take more than candy to fight and win this war."

Friday Oct. 26: Arcade Catastrophe Launch Party. Join Mull in a marshmallow war from 5 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. at Thanksgiving Point Gardens in Lehi, Utah. Also on the schedule, booth activities from 4p.m. to 6 p.m., and a book signing from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Tuesday, March 12: Simon & Schuster releases the final book in Mull's Beyonders trilogy, Chasing the Prophesy. Here's a synopsis from the publisher:

"Jason and Rachel were not born in Lyrian. They did not grow up in Lyrian. But after all of the battles and losses, the triumphs and adventures, and most of all, the friendships forged in this fantastical world, Lyrian has become home to them in a way they never could have imagined.

And so, armed now with the prophecy of a dying oracle, they have gone on their separate quests—each surrounded by brave and powerful allies—knowing that the chance for success is slim. But Jason and Rachel are ready at last to become the heroes Lyrian needs, no matter the cost."
