Okay. Fablehaven. AWESOME!!! If you're like me, then you like a good book that skips the drama right to the action. That's what I like. Though this book was slightly different. we still had the action and a lot of it, but we also had some(or a lot depending on you) more focus than usual on Kendra's love life. and that is totally fine. I LOVE BRACKEN AND KENDRA(SUE YOU GAVIN). They are just beautiful. But me being a not so into romance person, I was like......okay? but what I love about Brandon Mull is that he has such a perfect balance of things. The romance and the action perfectly balanced out each other(at times the action overwhelmed everything else....thankyou Brandon Mull). Some parts of the book were.....weird. As in you can't timetravel with anything....even clothes!!!(one of the reasons the Five Kingdoms series,also by Mull,is more intone for younger kids) I was like...um Brandon plz don't....PLZ...BRANDON...NOOOO!!!!!! But thankfully Brandon didn't go any farther than that. I love everything Brandon. he is like my legit author hero. I suggest,if you haven't, read all the Brandon Mull books. ALL!!! And if you are a Fablehaven fan, be sure to read the continuing series Dragonwatch (YAAAASSSS) AND KENDRA AND BRACKEN FOREVER!!!!!!!!!! GO UNICORNS!!!!!!! Also Chinderixx, I slightly agaree with you that Gavin was legit cool...and awesome.....BUT EVILLL*CRY,CRY,CRY*. But I would have to disagree with you on one thing....BRACKEN IS LLLIIITTTT!!!!! The relationship was slightly rushed(I see where you're going with that), but it still fit well enough and it is cannon....so there.

Fablehaven is a great book. I like how we get to see how you can get through difficult situations by on your own, even when everything seems to go wrong. The description of the fairies made them seem really beautiful. Overall, it was a really good book.

After finishing the Fablehaven series, I can say that I absolutely enjoyed them. They were creative, hilarious, easy to read, and had that fun adventure feel that I really liked. It's actually kind of sad that the first five are over, but I'm excited to read Dragonwatch next.
Keys To the Demon Prison was good, and had some unexpected, interesting twists with lots of action. The ending didn't feel rushed to me, and I thought that it was cool how a lot of the characters got to have some hero time during the final battle.
I didn't really like Bracken, (I didn't think he was as cool as Gavin) and the whole romance between him and Kendra was just too much. Especially toward the end, I thought it was just getting weird.
But anyways, speaking of Kendra, I liked how she got to play a huge role in the final battle like Seth did, and I liked seeing how her (and Seth's) characters developed over the series.
Again, I would seriously recommend these books to everyone. They really are good!

I didn't expect this book to be as good as everyone says it is, but honestly, Fablehaven was actually very good and it left me excited to continue reading the series.
I think that this book was very creative and hilarious and for the most part, I think it flowed very nicely.

While Brandon Mull is not J.K.Rowling in talent, the story is very Harry Potter like, children battling to save the magical world from the evil society. They were mildly interesting.

OMG, this book is BOSS! I absolutely, hands down, loved this book. It's a mix of fantasy and adventure fiction, which are my too favorite genres. It actually starts out a bit boring- once I quit at the first chapter,but then tried again, actually finishing this book and loved it. As many other people say, the rest of the books in the series are EVEN BETTER! It's a tough competitor for my favorite book on my list. It's fierce competition between: Harry Potter, The Penderwicks, Percy Jackson, and Fablehaven. if you ever get a chance check out those series too. Overall, this book is just ruling the library and I LOVED it!! You just HAVE to read it. BTW, Seth is a really mischevious boy who makes the story interesting. If you don't know him, he's one of the main characters along with his older sister, Kendra.

Overall this was pretty good; like any first volume of a series, there is a bit more setting everything up than usual. The only thing I really didn't care for was the very stilted, proper way the grandparents talked sometimes. It just didn't sound natural. Otherwise a really good start to what I anticipate to be a good series.

I love these books! I would definitely recommend the rest of the series. If you like being completely surprised by plot twists, they are a must read.

A truly exponential book that leaves you wanting for more! Thrill, Adventure, Action, Fantasy, Mystery, and Magic! There's nothing this book doesn't have to make it an epic conclusion to the Fablehaven series.

Plus after, you'll then be ready for the brand new sequel series, The Dragonwatch by Brandon Mull!

BRACKEN: "The truth sounds absurd."
KENDRA: "Try me."
BRACKEN: "You don't even believe I'm an actual prisoner; you're not going to believe this."
KENDRA: "Give it a shot. You might want to stutter-that could help sell it."
BRACKEN: "Stutter?"
KENDRA: "Long story."

"Making mistakes is part of learning to choose well. No way around it. Choices are thrust upon us, and we don't always get things right. Even postponing or avoiding a decision can become a choice that carries heavy consequences. Mistakes can be painful-sometimes they cause irrevocable harm-but welcome to Earth. Poor choices are part of growing up, and part of life. You will make bad choices, and you will be affected by the poor choices of others. We must rise above such things." -Patton

"Remember how worried you were when we dropped you off?" Mom said as she buckled her seatbelt. "I bet it wasn't half as scary as you imagined."
Kendra and Seth shared a very special look.
