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.

          This is an AMAZING book. Brother and sister, Seth and Kendra, find themselves staying at their grandparents' house, in the middle of nowhere, who they barely know. There, they are told to NEVER go into the woods with a capital N. As in, they probably should not have. While Seth strays into the woods, drawn by the mystery and beauty of it, Kendra is dazzled by the hummingbirds, that are attracted to the sparkling surface of a jewel encrusted mirror. She soon learns that they are faeries, who so dearly love their reflections. They can only be seen if you drink the milk of their giant cow. Soon, mid summers night comes. That is when all the monsters in the woods can come into their yard. Seth and Kendra are told to stay in their room... But sometimes things can just be too tempting... Join Seth and Kendra on this action packed, mysterious, beautiful story that will keep you on your toes, (or wings), the entire time.

            Kendra and Seth are going to stay with their grandparents while their parents go on a cruise. At first, they're reluctant to go, but then they find a very special secret about their grandparent's farm. It's really a magical home for mythical creatures called Fablehaven! But when Seth and Kendra accidentally put Fablehaven in great danger, it's up to them to save it. Can they save Fablehaven-and everyone who lives there, including their grandparents and themselves!-before it's too late?

                    When Kendra and her brother Seth are forced to spend their summer with their grandparents while their parents are away on a trip. But when they arrive they find their grandparent's place full of secrets and mystery. For one thing their grandmother is nowhere in sight. Then they learn that many mystical creatures are hidden on a refuge called Fablehaven. It turns out their grandfather is the current caretaker. But it is a dangerous job, with many threatening creatures. But on Midsummer's Eve a rule is broken and evil is unleashed. Kendra and Seth must find the courage to save their family from the terrors of Fablehaven. I loved this series, especially the first book. I recommend this book for middle grade and above. I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.

                      Fablehaven is the first book in the Fablehaven stories, and starts the 5-book series off with a great start. The two main characters are Kendra- the clever older sister- and Seth- the mischievous younger brother. They are sent off to stay with their grandparents for the summer, but it immediately turns out that Fablehaven is a lot different than they expected! When a sudden crisis occurs, Kendra and Seth must save Fablehaven- and the world! This is packed with action, adventure, and fantasy that you could never dream of!
