Fablehaven by Brandon Mull 
reviewed by Samuel 

Fablehaven is the first book in an amazing 4-part series by Brandon Mull. In this book Kendra and Seth must go spend a two-week vacations at their grandparents' home. When they get to the home they think it's going to be a boring two weeks. Boy, were they wrong. From the first day there, Kendra and Seth knew there was something different about the house, the farm, and the woods surrounding it all. Within two days of being there, they realize it is not just any farm but a preservation for magical creatures. Before they know it, they are sucked into an epic battle of good versus evil. Brandon Mull combines humor with action, adventure, and heartfelt moments. This is a book for all ages. It is amazing and I recommend it for people who like to read fantasy and adventure.

Fablehaven: Rise of the Evening Star by Brandon Mull 
reviewed by Samuel 

Fablehaven: Rise of the Evening Star is the second book in Brandon Mull's five part series. In this book Kendra and Seth have just finished the school year and are ready for another summer under the sun. But things don't pan out when a man claiming to be a friend of their grandpa sends Seth on what seems a harmless mission to feed a statue of a frog but things go terribly wrong. This man is secretly a member of the Society of the Evening Star wishing to infiltrate the preserve belonging to Seth and Kendra's grandparents to steal the secret artifact. Kendra and Seth manage to get the preserve safely but their problems have just begun. Brandon Mull does a great job of making his fantasy contain a touch of realism that allows readers to connect with the characters. This is a great book for children who like to read fantasy and adventure novels.

Fablehaven: Secret of the Dragon Sanctuary by Brandon Mull 
reviewed by Samuel 

Fablehaven: Secret of the Dragon Sanctuary is the fourth book in Brandon Mull's five part series. In this book, two of the critical artifacts have already been discovered by The Sphinx. It is not until Kendra finds secret instructions left by the late Patton Burgess on how to find the next artifact that anyone has hope. The only drawback is that she has to go into a dragon sanctuary. In other words this is a suicide mission. Kendra and the best warriors of The Knights of The Dawn must embark on this scary mission. You'll have to read the book to see who survives. Brandon Mull has masterfully crafted this fantastical thriller with countless twists and turns. This series is a great read for people of all ages. From fantasy fanatics to adventure addicts, this book is great and anyone can enjoy it.
