Ok... I have one thing to say.... this is the BEST Fablehaven "episode" so far!!!!

Right from the beginning it is nonstop action!

Every place they go to and everything they see is described without fault! You can feel as if you are right with the kids wherever they are and doing whatever needs to be done!

In this book they are getting a little older and a little more mature. Well.. Kendra is. Seth is another story :o) But I like him all the same.

I've enjoyed this entire series but I do have to say that Brandon Mull just gets better with each book that he writes! This book will not disappoint anyone who likes the Fablehaven series!!

I don't generally like to give out much information because I don't like to ruin anything for anyone but this once I will say that I most enjoyed Raxtus who is a "runt" of a dragon. I won't say more, but I think Mr Mull made Raxtus to try to make me a bit happier than I have been!

This is a must read for any who have read the other books in the series. And I defy you to say it isn't the best book yet!!

Oh, btw I nearly forgot.. the blame on this book and ALL the Fablehaven books goes to Chris! But since this game started after the other books I can only give him one point. He deserves 4 !

Just been looking at the first in this series and thinking I not only ought to try them but also recommend them to my daughter for her daughter. Are they an easyish read, Pat? They certainly sound like a *lot* of fun...

Yay!!! I'm so glad you enjoyed it as much as you did...I loved Raxtus too..he was a perfect dragon :) And I totally agree that you can visualize his novels so well. I think that's what I love about them so much! Hope you give it a try Cath!!

Turns out my daughter and family have read the first book in the series but the library doesn't have any more of them so they've only read that one, Pat. I think maybe I should start a wishlist on Amazon, as you suggested on the phone, and those would be ideal to go on it, as I'd love to read them.

Chris: this book was really a giant step up for him for some reason.. i did enjoy this one more than the others but I wouldn't have without having read the other books first.

Cath.. join the nuthouse and make a wish list! lol
