Rated 4 out of 5 by from Instand magic fix for Harry Potter withdrawal I thought to myself after reading this, what a great book! it's got everything that makes a fantasy readable, enjoyable and a great adventure. You'll find every sort of mythical creature in Fablehaven (except unicorns and dragons, for now) but fairies are a very important aspect to the sanctuary and they seem to be all over the place. I loved the plot. It was extremely well written and the first few chapters were excellent in drawing the reader into the story and into the magical world of what is Fablehaven. There is the classic battle of good versus evil, and of course it runs much deeper than there. There are unanswered questions and there is still lots to learn about the sanctuary, but the book does a very good job in introducing the reader to the main story and helps the reader in determining who's "evil" and who's "good". What I'm trying to say is, it's a great book to introduce the reader as to who is involved, who might be involved, and the potential bigger, badder, battles that might come ahead in the later books to come. Character wise, I'd say I like Kendra the most. I think she's going to be the most important character in this series. Seth is also important, but he annoyed me a lot (I suppose that was the point of him, he is Kendra's younger brother). I'd have to say though, my favorite part is at the end, with all the fairies joining in. The writing was well done in this part, and I could picture everything clearly in my head. It had beautiful descriptions which were also concise and clear. I am definitely going to go ahead and read the rest of the series once I get my hands on them. Best thing is, the final book will be due out in the next few weeks! (Late March of 2010). This is a great series for fans of Harry Potter who need some more magic. True, there are no muggles in this one, there's no Hogwarts, but you'll see that Fablehaven provides a wonderful substitute for an instant magic fix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my personal favourites. This is the book that got me into reading. It is and always will be one of my favourite books and i eagerly await the remaining books in the series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic!! My aunt gave me this book for my birthday because I love to read. I said it was great, but never really planned on reading it, because it didn't look so great. Six months later I can't put it down. Literally. I read it in one sitting. This book is exciting and really explains everything well. This is a person who has read every Harry Potter book out (1-6) twice and the Lord of the Rings trilogy. This book is great if your looking for a great read from ages probably 12+. I think everyone would like this book if your into fantasy/adventure.

About the Book

Fablehaven, a sanctuary for mystical creatures, survives as one of the last strongholds of true magic in a cynical world. Kendra and her brother Seth do not know their grandfather is the current caretaker, but they soon face the challenge of their lives when powerful forces of evil are unleashed.

Read from the Book

A Mandatory Vacation Kendra stared out the side window of the SUV, watching foliage blur past. When the flurry of motion became too much, she looked up ahead and fixed her gaze on a particular tree, following it as it slowly approached, streaked past, and then gradually receded behind her. Was life like that? You could look ahead to the future or back at the past, but the present moved too quickly to absorb. Maybe sometimes. Not today. Today they were driving along an endless two-lane highway through the forested hills of Connecticut. "Why didn''t you tell us Grandpa Sorenson lived in India?" Seth complained. Her brother was eleven and heading into sixth grade. He had grown weary of his handheld video game -- evidence that they were on a truly epic drive. Mom twisted to face the backseat. "It won''t be much longer. Enjoy the scenery." "I''m hungry," Seth said. Mom started rummaging through a grocery bag full of snack food. "Peanut butter and crackers?" Seth reached forward for the crackers. Dad, driving, asked for some Almond Roca. Last Christmas he had decided that Almond Roca was his favorite candy and that he should have some on hand all year long. Nearly six months later he was still honoring his resolution. "Do you want anything, Kendra?" "I''m fine." Kendra returned her attention to the frantic parade of trees. Her parents were leaving on a seventeen-day Scandinavian cruise with all the aunts and uncles on her mother''s side. They were all going for free. Not because th
