For centuries, mystical creatures of all description were gathered to a hidden refuge called Fablehaven to prevent their extinction. The sanctuary survives today as one of the last strongholds of true magic in a cynical world. Enchanting? Absolutely. Exciting? You bet. Safe? Well, actually, quite the opposite... Kendra and her brother Seth have no idea their grandfather is the current caretaker of Fablehaven.

I love Brandon Mull's books. They are wonderful. But the narration is difficult to make it through. It's like he's reading to a 5 year old. The narration honestly took away from the magic of the book. But I liked the book enough I suffered through the narration.
