    "Perfect Fantasy Adventure Story for All Ages"

    While these books are geared toward children, they are really a lot of fun for any age. I love the imagined world in these books. I like the fact that the kids make mistakes but learn from them. I really love seeing their thinking process and what their imaginations come up with for solutions to difficult problems. The added characters, magical potions, magical artifacts and creatures are really cool.

    My 9 year old son has just listened to this audiobook. You can't believe how much work and summer-time math practice I got out of that boy, because I wouldn't let him have my ipod to listen to this book until he was done with school practice and chores. At the end he said in a frantic voice, "Mom! Where is the third book?!"

    Hooray that Audible has them on their site now! I'm going to get them all. I have them on CD already, but the CD versions are a NIGHTMARE to put into itunes. They misname files, misname the book, change the name of the narrator and the whole numbering sequence of the files. You honestly have to rename all of the hundreds of files to get it to play correctly on an ipod. We don't have many CD players left. I'm one of the people who has begged Audible to get these books because the CD's are truly atrocious. Only one problem..... where are books 4 & 5? Hopefully, they get them soon.

    Warning: The narrator has a strange cadence, but you get used to it. It is the same narrator as for the first book, so if you liked that you're fine. Listen to the sample before you buy. He drives me nuts sometimes, but somehow you forget about it when the story picks up. He does old and young voices well and they use some cool special effects for monsters and other voices. I especially like his voices for the main characters. Seth and Kendra are spot on.

    I'm listening to them all again at the same time as my son. The third book is one of my favorites, and I can hardly wait to listen to it. If you love clean fantasy adventures in a truly magical world, great main characters and an interesting storyline. You'll not miss the mark with Fablehaven 02 Rise of the Evening Star. Just as good or better than Fablehaven. Great books for the 8 to 14 set that adults will also enjoy. Great for LONG car rides and family fun! Some scary moments. No bad language or compromising situations. All around good fun.

    Story
    "Book 2 it was better than book1."
    If you could sum up Fablehaven, Book 2 in three words, what would they be?

    Fast-paced, fun, suspenseful.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Seth will always be my favorite character of the series.


    Have you listened to any of E. B. Stevens’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    EV Stevens is one of my favorite narrators of all time he ranks right up there with Michael Kramer, and Kate Reading.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Fable Haven rise of the evening Star, fun for he while family.

    Story
    "Fun enthralling magical world to visit."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Love the story can't wait to see the rest of them on here. I have always wanted to re-read the series but who has time for that? Back to Fablehaven and let the mayhem ensue! This one is full of magical creatures, breath taking action and shocking betrayals. Fun for kids or anyone who wants a little vacation somewhere magical.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fablehaven, Book 2?

    The scenes are spectacular and described well enough to "be there" as you listen.


    What about E. B. Stevens’s performance did you like?

    Not my favorite reader, the accents are laughable but the story shines through.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended along with my original Brandon Mull favorite, "The Candy Shop Wars" Which needs to be made available on audible!
