Publisher Comments:

For centuries mystical creatures of all description were gathered into a hidden refuge called Fablehaven to prevent their extinction. The sanctuary survives today as one of the last strongholds of true magic. Enchanting? Absolutely. Exciting? You bet. Safe? Well, actually, quite the opposite.

Kendra and her brother, Seth, have no idea that their grandfather is the current caretaker of Fablehaven. Inside the gated woods, ancient laws keep relative order among greedy trolls, mischievous satyrs, plotting witches, spiteful imps, and jealous fairies. However, when the rules get broken — Seth is a bit too curious and reckless for his own good — powerful forces of evil are unleashed, and Kendra and her brother face the greatest challenge of their lives. To save their family, Fablehaven, and perhaps even the world, Kendra and Seth must find the courage to do what they fear most.

Synopsis:

Take caution ahead!

If you dare, join Jack and Jill as they embark on a harrowing quest through a new set of tales from the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen, and others. Follow along as they enter startling new landscapes that may (or may not) be scary, bloody, terrifying, and altogether true in this hair-raising companion to Adam Gidwitzs widely acclaimed, award-winning debut, A Tale Dark and Grimm.

Synopsis:

Danger lurks everywhere at Fablehaven, where someone has released a plague that transforms beings of light into creatures of darkness. In dire need of help, the Sorensons question where to turn, now that long trusted allies have been revealed as potential foes. Kendra embarks on a special mission that only she can attempt because of her new abilities as fairykind, while Seth stays behind and discovers an incredible new talent of his own. The siblings are put to the test as the threat grows both abroad and home at the Fablehaven preserve, and Brandon Mull spins his richest and most thrilling fantasy tale yet in this third title of the popular fantasy series.

Fablehaven was a enchanting story that I could read a thousand times and always find a detail I missed. The author was very imaginative and inspiring. Over all an amazing read!

Fablehaven is a magical preserve for magical creatures and well hidden from the public. When the caretaker of Fablehaven is pressed into service as caretaker of his grandchildren, they soon figure out that it is not a normal place. But how much will Kendra and her little brother, Seth, discover? And are the risks of knowing too much worse, than the risk of not knowing what exactly is going bump in the night?

This entire book felt like an elaborate rip-off of the Spiderwick Chronicles. I kept thinking, "yep, read that scene" as I went. I won't even bother listing what disappointed me, I'll just mention the one thing I liked: The writing wasn't half bad, and I liked the use of sayings that aren't overused in fantasy lit. The descriptive writing was very well done, and I could imagine the scenes vividly without the descriptions killing the pacing.

10 Reasons Why Everyone Should Read Fablehaven (by Brandon Mull):
1-The story is really inventive and unique. Spiderwick has a similar setting, but Fablehaven is so much better executed.
2-The author uses lots of great words that you dont normally see in children's' books.
3-The character development within the books and throughout the series is some of the best I've read in children's lit.
4-The good characters aren't perfect. They make mistakes and they learn from them.
5-The evil characters are really evil and sinister and clever, and I'm a sucker for a well-written villain.
6-It's not predicatable. Sometimes surprising is always happening.
7-Family is important. The characters care for each other even though they sometimes get annoyed.
8-There are consequences for your actions. When characters do stupid things, they don't just get of scot-free.
9-It's absorbing. Within one chapter you are hooked and you can't put it down.
10-The creatures are fascinating! The author includes dozens of mythical and magical creatures and gives them funny quirks or personalities. I love the satyrs!

And that's why I love it!
OH! 11- The books have pretty covers! :)
