Publisher's Summary

At the end of the school year, Kendra and her brother, Seth, find themselves racing back to Fablehaven, a refuge for mythical and magical creatures. Grandpa Sorenson, the caretaker, invites three specialists - a potion master, a magical relics collector, and a mystical creature trapper - to help protect the property from the Society of the Evening Star, an ancient organization determined to infiltrate the preserve and steal a hidden artifact of great power.

Time is running out. The Evening Star is storming the gates. If the artifact falls into the wrong hands, it could mean the downfall of other preserves and possibly the world. Will Kendra learn to use her fairy gifts in time? Will Seth stay out of trouble? Can they overcome paralyzing fear? Find out in book 2 of this bestselling series.

What the Critics Say

"Fablehaven is a fantastical, wonderful book. Look out, J.K. Rowling; the fantasy genre has an outstanding new author to embrace!" (BookReview.com)

"This story is so compelling and so well written you'll find its magic working on you as well, completely taking over your ability to put the book down, even for a moment." (Columbia Daily Tribune)

"[Mull's] story offers unexpected twists and entertainingly scary creatures." (The New York Times)

    "Perfect Fantasy Adventure Story for All Ages"

    While these books are geared toward children, they are really a lot of fun for any age. I love the imagined world in these books. I like the fact that the kids make mistakes but learn from them. I really love seeing their thinking process and what their imaginations come up with for solutions to difficult problems. The added characters, magical potions, magical artifacts and creatures are really cool.

    My 9 year old son has just listened to this audiobook. You can't believe how much work and summer-time math practice I got out of that boy, because I wouldn't let him have my ipod to listen to this book until he was done with school practice and chores. At the end he said in a frantic voice, "Mom! Where is the third book?!"

    Hooray that Audible has them on their site now! I'm going to get them all. I have them on CD already, but the CD versions are a NIGHTMARE to put into itunes. They misname files, misname the book, change the name of the narrator and the whole numbering sequence of the files. You honestly have to rename all of the hundreds of files to get it to play correctly on an ipod. We don't have many CD players left. I'm one of the people who has begged Audible to get these books because the CD's are truly atrocious. Only one problem..... where are books 4 & 5? Hopefully, they get them soon.

    Warning: The narrator has a strange cadence, but you get used to it. It is the same narrator as for the first book, so if you liked that you're fine. Listen to the sample before you buy. He drives me nuts sometimes, but somehow you forget about it when the story picks up. He does old and young voices well and they use some cool special effects for monsters and other voices. I especially like his voices for the main characters. Seth and Kendra are spot on.

    I'm listening to them all again at the same time as my son. The third book is one of my favorites, and I can hardly wait to listen to it. If you love clean fantasy adventures in a truly magical world, great main characters and an interesting storyline. You'll not miss the mark with Fablehaven 02 Rise of the Evening Star. Just as good or better than Fablehaven. Great books for the 8 to 14 set that adults will also enjoy. Great for LONG car rides and family fun! Some scary moments. No bad language or compromising situations. All around good fun.

    "I couldn't listen to this book for a full chapter"

    I wish I could return this book. The reading is so over the top and distracting I had to turn it off. On one hand I recognize that this is a young adult book, but on the other, it's not meant for 2yr olds. I'm very disappointed.

    "Gripping"

    Yet again I have read another Fablehaven book and I am still thrilled with the stories! This however is even more dramatic and gripping. And the way they've added other people with different 'powers' is excellent. I can't wait to read the next one!!!!😁
