SMSBookReviews, January 14, 2011

Fablehaven: Keys to the Demon Prison
By: Brandon Mull

The fifth edition of Fablehaven pits young adventurers Seth and Kendra Sorenson
in yet another epic battle in the magical world of fairies, demons, and dragons. As they are thrust into another life or death mission, the kids face unreal obstacles like the Singing Sisters, magical totem walls, and eventually the demon king. As Seth and Kendra find new powers, they are teamed up with the Sphinx, their ancient enemy. From prison to magical assassins, and even an age-old wizard, Fablehaven is full of nonstop action and adventure, ending with four words: “That would be perfect.” Yes it was.
