In FABLEHAVEN, Kendra and Seth helped save the magical preserve by thwarting Murial's attempt to release the demon, Bahumat. Though they won that battle, the Society of the Evening Star is waging war. If they hope to save Fablehaven again, Kendra must learn to use her fairy gifts and Seth must stay out of trouble.

Unfortunately, trouble has a way of finding Seth.

Seth, Kendra, and more of Mull's amazing characters (new and old) are back in RISE OF THE EVENING STAR as they fight to keep the Society of the Evening Star from obtaining a hidden artifact of great power. If they don't, it could be the downfall of the other magical preserves and possibly the world.

Mull has created a realm of magic and mystery that pulls the reader in and won't let them go until the last page. Even then, he leaves us wanting more.

With hidden preserves and all their magical inhabitants, a secret society threatening the world, and a group of unlikely heroes trying to save it all, the FABLEHAVEN series is a must-read for any fantasy lover.

After reading RISE OF THE EVENING STAR, I couldn't wait to get my hands on the third book, GRIP OF THE SHADOW PLAGUE.

What an exciting second installment! I really, really, REALLY love this series! It's exciting, it's magical, it teaches great morals, it's suspenseful, it has the classic good against evil themes, and it's wonderful for all ages. We revisit Kendra and her brother Seth as Brandon Mull takes the story a bit deeper in Rise of the Evening Star, the second book in the Fablehaven series. In the first book of the Fablehaven series, Kendra and Seth meet magic face-to-face at the refuge run by their grandparents. Here in the second book, magic comes to meet them in their very normal, non-magical lives at school and home. The plot is twisty and at times very hard to predict, which is something I crave in any story.

Format: Hardcover
I thought that the first book Fablehaven was imaginative and a great read, but little did I know that Brandon Mull would come up with an even better story for his follow up novel. Although it may seem to be a little long if you measure it from cover to cover, like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows , you'll be so riveted to the pages that you won't even notice it.

Kendra and Seth return to Fablehaven after a foul monster infiltrates their school, leading to a series of events involving a frog, an ambush and a high speed car chase, but that's just where the real fun begins.

An ancient and extremely powerful group is trying to steal an artifact from the refuge, and the children's grandparents have called for some back-up. The problem is that all this protection doesn't seem to be working, and bit by bit, the bad guys are getting closer.

This book stands out for the exciting and colorful characters (on both sides) including the enigmatic (obviously) Sphinx who's always on the move (something like the Oracle from The Matrix movies); a potion master of Samoan ancestry who keeps lots of good stuff bottled up; a mystical creature trapper who has the strangest and most horrible roommates ever; a magical relics collector with lots of cool tricks up his sleeves, a gluttonous beast that will stop at nothing until he's eaten everything on his menu; plus fairies, imps, goblins, and an assortment of others, alive, undead, reanimated and even catatonic.

The last chapters will have you turning the pages as fast as you can, as the author brings you to the thrilling and chilling conclusion - or is it? You'll need to read the first book to get the background for this one, but both are highly recommended. This is a brilliant and magical series, and I can't wait for book three (2008).

Format: Paperback
This is the second in the series of FableHaven, once you get started you have trouble putting it down, the start is much faster in this book getting to the subtle mysteries of the fantasy fairy world of mythical creatures, each step taken by the main characters Kendra and her brother seth makes you want to know more and every turn of the page is a new bit of information, the plot is similar to the first book and just as gripping.
