Critic Reviews

"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.

Amazing!

Great addition to the series. The first book took me a bit to get into, and the second as well. This book had me hooked start to finish. Can’t wait for book 4!

Get a new narrator

I love the fablehaven series. But this narrator needs to work on his narrating. There were so many weird pauses, and the phrasing made no sense. Some words were squished together while others were awkwardly separated. Someone should have been sitting in while this was recorded. The character voices were done well though.

Modern Day Fantasy Come to Life!

I live the Fabelhaven series. Kid's abbr adults of all ages are captured by the story. E.B. Stevens makes the characters come to life with the different voices and accents.
