Format: Hardcover
It's very rare, in this day and age of Harry Potter mania (and yes, I admit I'm a very devoted victim!) to find a fantasy story that can actually hold your attention. With FABLEHAVEN, though, new author Brandon Mull manages to do just that from the very first page to the last. Not to mention, thank the fairies, that there's already another book planned in the series.

The premise is simple enough: two siblings, thirteen-year-old Kendra and her eleven-year-old brother, Seth, are relegated to spending time with their paternal grandparents, Grandma and Grandpa Sorenson, while their parents enjoy a seventeen-day Scandinavian cruise. At first glance, that might not seem so strange, but you have to understand that their family's relationship with the grandparents Sorenson is sort of an odd one. They don't visit much, they don't call; in fact, Kendra and Seth don't really know their grandparents that well at all.

This is a forced, mandatory vacation though, so the kids don't have much choice in the matter. And when they finally reach Fablehaven, where, unbeknown to them, their Grandfather is the caretaker, they're a little overwhelmed. First, there were the No Trespassing and Private Property signs that gave way to one that said Certain Death Awaits. Now, they find out that however pretty and secluded Fablehaven may be, there's no television, no radio, and a ton of rules -- not all of which make sense.

What follows is two weeks of more adventure, trouble, suspense, and magic than the kids could have ever dreamed of. When their rash actions, and disobedience to some important rules, leads to retribution from the magical world of Fablehaven, Kendra, Seth, Grandpa Sorenson, and even Grandma, who seems to be missing, are in for a ride.

. . . and "trespassers shall be turned to stone". So greets the reader upon opening up Brandon Mull's debut book for children. A warning that should be heeded, for FABLEHAVEN tells the story of a magical preserve hidden away in the country.
Kendra and Seth are sent away for a vacation at their grandparent's house whilst their parents enjoy a cruise. Both see this as a sentence rather than the beginning of a great adventure, as they have rarely seen their grandparents and they feel that they are getting the short end of a good bargain, being left in their care as their parents get to enjoy sea and sun.
As they approach the house, signs warning against trespassers being "persecuted" and that "certain death awaits" makes them slightly concerned about the mentality of the people they shall soon be in the care of. Once at the house, their grandfather tells them there are only two rules during their stay at FABLEHAVEN:-
#1 The woods are out of bounds
#2 The barn is also out of bounds

He does not expand on why. But, kids being curious (and eager to break rules), they soon find out why. FABLEHAVEN is a preserve that protects magical creatures. While there are some that are'good' there are also some that would mean them harm. This is never so important as during Midsummer Eve, a night when the creatures venture closer to the house and will try any means necessary to gain entry into the protected house in order to have their way with the occupants. Childish curiosity and then disregard to their grandfather's authority finally lead them to put their loved ones in danger, perhaps even the future of FABLEHAVEN itself. In order to restore things to how they should be, Kendra and Seth must venture deeper into FABLEHAVEN, seeking help from some creatures that may wish to do them harm.

I loved this book, really easy , enjoyable bedtime reading. Took a couple of pages to get into the story, mainly because of American references like SRV, but once I got into it I found it hard to put down. Unfortunately it didn't last me too long! Great book for adults or children. Looking forward to reading the next one. I'm a big fan of Eoin Colfer's books and also chronicles of crestomanci, so this is of the same ilk, but not quite as edgy as colfers. A really great book, worth a read!!

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were all very individual and well written. The little boy main character called Seth is an absolute nightmare. If you've got a big red button that you dont want pressed, then keep him away from it. He can't help getting into mischief, and this summer, on his grandparents magical preserve full of fairies, satires, witches and monsters, that is a very dangerous thing. His sister is the calm rational one who has to sort things out. The plot of the story is very well thought out and the imagery used in the story is really clear. The magical milk and its source are a very nice touch. There is plenty of danger and suspence to keep you interested all the way through, as darkness tries to rise to power and the children and there grandparents must stop it. Fablehaven is a really good story that your children are sure to love, and although it is not my absolute favourite book of its kind, i look forward to reading the next installment.

I'm reviewing this a couple of months after reading it, and perhaps the most pertinent comment is that I can't remember the names of any of the protagonists. Nuff said really.

Ok, it's not terrible, and it did engage me for a short while, and the premise of the reservation for magical creatures is nice, but it soon frustrated me. Most particularly the infuriating character of Seth (looked up the names on wikipedia), who does everything he's (repeatedly) told not to, including opening a window, which leads to the capture and possible death of his grandfather, but then is immediately told by his sister (supposed to be 14 I think) that he's not to blame. Right....that's exactly what a 14 year old would say. Well, at that point I gave up, although from a desire to finish the damn thing I persevered.

Ok, perhaps I am a bit old to be reading this stuff. :-)
