Fablehaven: Grip of the Shadow Plague by Brandon Mull

Hardcover: 480 pages
Publisher: Shadow Mountain (April 21, 2008)
ISBN-10: 1590388984

Product Description
In the third volume, the peril escalates as an unexplained darkness infects the creatures of Fablehaven.

Fablehaven: Grip of the Shadow Plague is the third, (but not final book ) about Fablehaven.

In this book the preserve that was once beautiful is turning dark.

Nipsies, are turning gray and warring with each other, Fairies once all beautiful colors are turning dark and evil. Even human helpers who can help them are slowly being turned into shadows with no substance.

Fablehaven is falling apart at the seams, evil is taking over!. The question is: can it be saved?

Kendra becomes a Knight of the Dawn and is sent on a mission to another preserve with another new recruit named Gavin who can tame dragons. While Seth remains with his grandparents trying to fight this dark plague.

The kids come back together on the preserve and everyone sets out to try and discover who the traitor is and how to stop the plague.

Well, three out of three books, and all of them enjoyable! I think it's safe to say that anyone who's read these books will already be looking forward to the next installment... I know I am!!

Congratulations, Karmyn!

I can't believe I haven't gotten around to reading this series yet! I originally bought Fablehaven for Annie right after it came out in paperback, just so I could read it. She of course, did long ago, but I still haven't done it. Bad me.
