Summary: 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.
Review: I stumbled upon Fablehaven in the library, and wow what a good find it was! Brandon Mull has crafted a beautiful, exciting, and dark world that I fell in love with at once. His talents are evident just after reading the first chapter. Fablehaven is a book that all will enjoy. It is a story that any fantasy lover would adore. It is truly a must-read. 😉
