I Give This Book 4 Stars!
Description: At the end of the school year, Kendra and her brother, Seth, find themselves racing back to Fablehaven, a refuge for mythical and magical creatures. Grandpa Sorenson, the caretaker, invites three specialists- a potion master, a magical relics collector, and a mystical creature trapper- to help protect the property from the Society of the Evening Star, an ancient organization determined to infiltrate the preserve and steal a hidden artifact of great power. Time is running out. The Evening Star is storming the gates. If the artifact falls into the wrong hands, it could mean the downfall of other preserves and possibly the world. Will Kendra learn to use her fairy gifts in time? Will Seth stay out of trouble? Can they overcome paralyzing fear?
I was a little worried I wasn't going to enjoy this as much as the first (my curse of not liking book 2 in a series). It starts out slow, but then I just wanted to the kids to get back to Fablehaven! Then things really start to pick up and your immersed in the magical world again. I was hoping for more creatures, explanations, and just more on the preserve itself with the first book. I got it this time around. I loved the story line with the demon and Seth. The entire chapters with them retrieving the artifact from the inverted tower were great! I kept picturing the scenes and how they would look in movie form. While I still think it's not as great as Harry Potter, I think the series is a great filler for those looking for something magical now that the Harry Potter series is finished!
