"The Fablehaven series is generating buzz as a contender in the fantasy-adventure genre to replace the Harry Potter franchise." (Hollywood Reporter)
"Like Harry Potter, Fablehaven can be read aloud in a family with as much pleasure for grownups as for children." (Orson Scott Card)
"Featuring plenty of heroism and hilarity, Fablehaven is rich in creatures, magic-working, and hard-fought battles." (Kirkus Reviews)
This is a must for children or anyone for that matter. The whole series is a must read but this one in particular has a few of my favorite elements. The other magical creature preserve they visit is spectacular. The pacing is perfect, the descriptions really bring you there, this is a magical vacation. Now I'm just waiting for the rest of the series to come up.
It's fun and light and magical.
E. B. Stevens is not my favorite (sry) but favorite characters abound none the less. Patton is an obvious standout and the voice of the demon was well done.
Forget Hogwarts, leave Narnia behind the real adventure awaits at Fablehaven! (please god say they are making these into movies!)
Not to be missed.
I love this book. It is one of my favorites in a series of favorites! I look forward to reading the next installment!
My kids love this audio book series! It is a fun and imaginative story that is easy to get caught up in. My kids also enjoy the narrators interpretation of the characters and their voices. It's a very good series!
Honestly not sure. I love the Fablehaven series but couldn't get through the first chapter of this Audible version due to poor narration.
Nothing disappointing about his previous Fablehaven books. I cannot comment on this story as I did not finish it.
NO, I really disliked the Tweenage voice paired with an extended "S" lisp. With the main caracter named "Seth" it made it very difficult to follow along.
I thoroughly enjoyed Fablehaven books 1 and 2 in paper/hand copy. I had hoped for a good listen but couldn't continue. I will have to buy the paperback so I can continue the series that I love.
Brendan, did great job on this book of the fable Haven series it's one of my favorites.
It is fun to see how Seth develops in this book.
By the time you're halfway through the book you cannot put it down.
