Publisher's Summary

Strange things are afoot at Fablehaven. Someone or something has released a plague that transforms beings of light into creatures of darkness. Seth discovers the problem in its infancy, but as the infectious disease spreads, it becomes clear that the preserve cannot hold out for long. In dire need of help, the Sorensons question where to turn. The Sphinx has always given sound advice - but is he a traitor?

Inside the Quiet Box, Vanessa might have information that could lead to a cure - but can she be trusted? Meanwhile, Kendra and members of the Knights of the Dawn must journey to a distant preserve and retrieve another hidden artifact. Will the Society of the Evening Star recover it first? Will the plague eclipse all light at Fablehaven? Find out in Fablehaven: Grip of the Shadow Plague.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Love Fablehaven!!! These books are fantastic fun!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's fun and light and magical.


    Which character – as performed by E. B. Stevens – was your favorite?

    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.


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

    Forget Hogwarts, leave Narnia behind the real adventure awaits at Fablehaven! (please god say they are making these into movies!)


    Any additional comments?

    Not to be missed.

    "Great book and series!!!"

    I loved this one the most so far. The first two have been really good but this one has had the most action so far. At this rate they can only get better.

    Recently found a love for books and with Audible I can clean and keep going - I also use it in my classroom to urge kids to read.

    "Romance Ruins Magic"

    I guess I'm a non romantic person. I understand and that Kendra is growing up, but really she's like 13. Do we have to rush it. And I understand the religion, but sometimes Kendra sounds so dumb.

    "ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I HAVE EVER READ!!!!!"

    I HAVE LISTENED THIS SERIES 6 TIMES, AND STILL HAVEN'T GOTTEN BORED! It helped me with writing exiting sentences, and better vocabulary. It is also full of twists and turns in the events in the book. I would strongly suggest this book. It would probably be best to read the other books first though :P
