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

Kendra and her brother Seth have no idea their grandfather is the current caretaker of Fablehaven. Inside the gated woods, ancient laws give relative order among greedy trolls, mischievous satyrs, plotting witches, spiteful imps, and jealous fairies. However, when the rules get broken, an arcane evil is unleashed, forcing Kendra and Seth to face the greatest challenge of their lives. To save her family, Fablehaven, and perhaps the world, Kendra must find the courage to do what she fears most.

            Have you ever wondered what would happen if all the mystical creatures (good and bad) were living all around you; but you couldn't see them? This is exactly the storyline of Fablehaven by: Brandon Mull. This book takes you on a fantastic adventure, where fantasy meets reality and all unbelievable things become true. As Kendra (13) and Seth (11) go to their grandparents house, due to their parents going on a cruise. At first, the children are bored, but soon grew curious of the grandfather’s ginormous property. As adventurous Seth ventures out into the dangerous, where he isn't suppose to go, Kendra solves her grandfather's riddles, that he gave her to keep her occupied. The brother and sister soon recognize the riddles led to an even bigger surprise!When you drink a special milk you are able to see a more interesting world around you. Soon there are fairies, naiads, witches, imps and satyrs all for the grandchildren to see. Some are good, some are bad, “This is Hugo our golem, he does all our chores and grants every request we give him.” Hugo is a good creature who would never be mean. There are other creatures on the property who would kill in a second. According to the grandfather a bad time is to come to Fablehaven, the summer solstice and the Rise of the Evening Star. Not knowing what is to come next the children grow erie of the animals and the home. The genre of the book is fantasy, Brandon Mull writes other fantasy novels like the 2nd,3rd,4th,5th novels of this series. His writing falls under the same category as Percy Jackson, with the mystical creature living with the humans. The people who would like this book, are those who like mythology and fantasy. This is a amazing book that I would rate 5/5 stars. I really like the content and the way it was written.

              Fablehaven is about two siblings- Kendra and Seth- who go to stay at their Grandpa Sorenson's house while their parents are away. At first Kendra is suspicious of Grandpa Sorenson, who she had never met. but soon appreciates the room she shares with Seth, the decorative house, the Asian lady, Lena, the caretaker, Dale, the large swimming pool and colorful insects and birds that flutter around. However, Seth is always looking for trouble, and enters the woods that surrounds the house, only a part of Grandpa's huge property, even though Grandpa forbade it, saying that the woods were full of ticks. Seth discovers many things, but Kendra finds out more when she drinks the 'bacteria filled' milk. Her eyes open, and the first thing she sees is fairies! She and Seth realize that Grandpa's property is actually filled with magical creatures, a haven to protect the hidden legends. Only their house is protected from the evil creatures. However, on the Midsummer's Eve, all boundaries are lost and they run wild. When the house is infiltrated by the beasts, all three adults are not to be found, and the house is a wreck. Now, Kendra and Seth must save them, and stop the evil creatures that run afoot, or else the magical and human world will be in peril.
