Review: Fablehaven:Rise of the Evening Star by Brandon Mull

Book: Fablehaven: The Rise of the Evening Star by Brandon Mull

Genre: YA/MG Fantasy

Rating: A-

For: Fun

This is the continuation of the story about Kendra and Seth and their adventures at their grandparents place, which just happens to be on a magical creatures preserve called Fablehaven. Some new and interesting characters are introduced, and right off the bat we get a feeling that one of them is hiding something.

My only problem with this book was that for me, it had a slow start. Granted, there was that sneaking around a mortuary business, and that strange dude that showed up at school. But then, it seemed like half the book was gone before anything really happened.

Then it made up for lost time and there was non-stop action and some majorly intense moments for both the kids. Some of the adventure reminded me of Indiana Jones type excitement, including lots of brain action/puzzle solving.

So, I'm quite sure I'll keep going with the series. Everyone says they just get better and better. I tend to believe them!

  1. I just picked the first two of these up at the Scholastic Warehouse Sale. I think they'll be fun to read with my kids. Thanks for the review!

  3. Yeah, I heard that the first one wasn't that great, but that if you stick with it, it is worth it. I still haven't decided if it is for me or not!
