"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.
Have been very happy and pleased with this book and series.. Am looking forward to obtaining the complete series.. Will be looking for other books by this same author.
As the title states, I enjoyed the story. Lots of adventure, mythical creatures, and fun plot twists. Some of the voices had some tics I found a little annoying (mostly Kendra's sighs) but most of the time I could just ignore it. Definitely fun to listen to while doing other things. I would recommend to people who like clean fantasy (so rare these days). I could listen around the house and not have to worry if my little girls came in. :)
Good Story, but They should have just Killed Off SETH in the last book... Gee whiz, this kid thinks that he doesn't have to obey ANYONE and he is constantly causing trouble and getting Fablehaven into trouble.
The book would be about a Day shorter if he cut all the complaining and gripping to Seth and about Seth.
I recommend the "Beyonder" Series over this one.
It made me ANGRY!!!... Seth's character and his morals made me want to stop reading.
Book 4 had better be better and a lot less complaining about Seth.
I love this book. It is one of my favorites in a series of favorites! I look forward to reading the next installment!
