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.

    I think this book is awsome, I read the series twice in a year. I think this book is right next to Percy Jackson! If you guys liked these series, you should try reading Brendan Mulls other series called the "Five Kingdoms".

      This is a seriously awsome book. Its about two siblings named Seth and Kendra, they find out they have to go to their mysterious grand parents house while their parents go on a cruise. Seth and Kendra stay at their grandparents house for three months and while their staying, scary and unbelievable things happen to them. I recommend this book kids who enjoy fantasies and magic, because once you get into this you cant stop reading it.

        This book was nice and descriptive, but i wasn't that interested in it because i read the fable haven series in a awkward order so i read the last book first and i wasn't really interested in this one, but it was fun reading the beginning.

              I would rate Fablehaven 2 stars out of 5 stars. This book didn't hold my attention that long and I am young. Thanks for accepting my review dogonews.

                Brandon mull is a great other and writes very interesting fantasy books. This was about siblings who learn about Fablehaven, a place where there are mystical creatures. Then, something happens and evil is unleashed. Will the siblings be able to fix it before its too late?

                  This book was really interesting. Brandon Mull is a really good author, though this series is kind of dark. Fraternal twins stay at their grandfather's wildlife preserve, only to find that the animals there aren't normal.
