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.

    These books are amazing. They keep you up all night reading and when your eyes start to droop and u know that u have to go to sleep, all u do is wonder about what will happen next. I started to read these books in 3rd grade and got to the 4th book. I didn't quite get it then and so I picked up the book again in 5th grade. I am on the 4th book again right now and it has only taken me a month to get here. They suck u in, then pour u out full of emotion. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone who loves books with exitment, fear, sadness, adventure, and love.

          The title of this book is fablehaven written by Brandon Mull. Fablehaven is a really good series about siblings Kendra and Seth Sorenson. They have to go to their grandma’s and grandpa’s house while their parents are on a cruise. When they get there, their grandpa says not to go in the woods or the barn. Then their grandpa gives Kendra a locked journal and hints to 6 keys to unlock it. When they find the key to unlock it, they find the words ‘drink the milk’. They later realize when they drink the milk that Dale (the groundskeeper) leaves outside, they can see the magical creatures such as witches, fairies, nymphs, satyrs and centaurs. They learn that it is dangerous to go in the woods or outside at night. My favorite part of the book is when all the monsters come out to the yard and one monster makes an illusion that looks like a baby. Then Seth lets it in the window, but as soon as it gets inside the room it turns into its original form. Luckily, before Kendra and Seth went to bed, their grandpa sprinkled magic golden dust on the ground around the bed. Then the monster could not attack them because it could not pass the golden dust which acted like a forcefield up and around the bed. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes fantasy with magic and monsters. If you do, trust me, the series is really good. If it does not sound good in the beginning, keep reading; it gets better.
