GUYS. This is a five star, first class series right here. DAMN THAT WAS SO GOOD!!!! I am so incredibly upset that I left book five at my apartment and will have to wait an entire 5 or 6 hours to continue with this series.

I had a hard time putting this book down. I read all 527 pages in about 8 hours. I forced myself to go to bed even though I was not done with the book, but I was getting really tired and couldn't keep my eyes open.

OK, so let's break it down:

Characters: There were a couple new characters and surprises on existing ones. I am totally liking Seth now that he is not quite so annoying and "stupid" (in that little brother way). And I loved it when Seth was taunting the poison dragon. Too funny! Brandon

Freaking Amazing, Awesome, and packed with Action.

Loved every page of it.....especially that ending Omo!!

Oh, my. Oh, my. I think I am too into the story. I pride myself in being able to outguess authors. Somehow, I forgot to even try as I read this book. How in the world can an author stay so original for so many pages in a row? This series certainly has the capacity to overtake Harry Potter on the "Freak, that was awesome!" scale. We'll see if Mull pulls it off in the last book.

I just finished reading my PERSONALLY SIGNED COPY of the book last night. Being that it was personally signed by the author means my book was more exciting than just a regular book. Okay, maybe not. But it was plenty exciting on its own. Holy keep me up until 4 in the morning, Batman.

There are some hilarious parts, some tense parts, some sweet parts, some action parts and then some 'he totally snookered me' parts. I knew, I just knew someone was going to betray them but I picked the wrong person

I really liked the first book of this series, and had high hopes for it. I even recommended it to people - people who have gone on to enjoy the series, as a whole, more than I seem to be doing.

But, for me, every book has gotten progressively less interesting, and I'm glad that it's only a 5 book series because I don't think I'd stick around if there were more than just the one book left.

Not that it's all bad. Seth is maturing and his developing powers are interesting, especially the way that

if i weren't such a sucker for juvenile fantasy this book would get maybe 1 star. it's so much fun though. the writing is more similar to a college research paper (awkward, technical, and far from poetic). The story is really interesting if you like magic and fantasy. Don't expect ANY insights into human nature. Don't expect any of the characters to be remotely human or familiar. Don't expect any substance whatsoever and you might have a great time. Fablehaven is like playing video games...its f ...more

3.5 stars, would have been 4 to 4.5 originally--reason why in spoilers.

DRAGONS. This has certainly been one of my fave books but something happened with dinged some starpower for me. Idk. It just made me go NOPE. Honestly it wasn't Seth--Seth, oh he's definitely grown and I've gotten used to his unique brand of stupidity. And everyone else is just perfect as well. The story itself just continues to build and

Fantastic! So far, Fablehaven: Secrets of the Dragon Sanctuary by author Brandon Mull is my favorite in the entire series. The Fablehaven series thus far as been about the five magical artifacts hidden on select magical preserves (Fablehaven included). The Society of the Evening Star is after these artifacts in order to unlock the demon prison which basically will allow whoever owns these artifacts to be (for a lack of better words) the king of the world. This brings main characters Kendra and S ...more

Decir primero que Seth no me gusta. Me parece alguien completamente temerario y egoísta, y que le hayan dado poderes me re pudre el cerebro porque me parece que, de alguna manera, lo están recompensando por todas las pelotudeces que hizo. Sus POV son no sólo aburridos sino también molestos para mí. Incluso cuando lloraba con Kendra, I mean... no.

Además, me parece que se tardó un montón de tiempo innecesario en llegar a Wyrmroost. Todo bien cuando intentaban ver el mensaje secreto de Patton en el

Wow. This series has some fans! You have to search pretty far down the Goodreads reviews to find less than a four star review for this book. That's okay. It's fine. There's nothing wrong with books that are just "to read". Any series that can keep people interested and reading gets five stars from me.

I myself gave the first two books in this series four stars. I think my main problem with series' is that it usually becomes pretty much the same thing over and over again. That's how I felt about t

These books have been so fun to read. I don't know why people insist on comparing Fablehaven to Harry Potter. They are both different enough.

In 'Secrets of the Dragan Sanctuary' I thoroughly enjoyed Seth's personality. In the first book he bothered me because he messed everything up, but this one he's actually growing into quite the hero. He truly provides the comic relief; sometimes I catch myself chuckling out loud.

This book was awesome! It was so suspenseful from the very beginning! I loved all of the twists and turns the author put in, even though a few of them made me SO MAD!!! Seriously? How the heck am I supposed to wait a whole year to find out what happens next? I am so excited to read the 5th one! I am sad it will be the last one though. Such a great series! I don't want it to end!

Brandon makes every character come to life, from mischievous satyrs, ambitious kids and imposing dragons. I breezed through all four books in this series in two weeks. I couldn't put them down. Book 4 releases on March 24. If you live anywhere near, make sure to come to the launch party that night. For details, check for more information.

Wow! I loved this book! Brandon Mull's writing was, as always, superb. The plot was well done and completely surprising; great for discussions or book groups. This may be a children's book, but it is written so that it is enjoyable for any age. I am already looking forward to the next book in the series!

My favorite of the series so far. Very interesting, has a few lulls that pass by quickly and into the action again. The surprise at the end made me say, "No way!" loud enough that I woke Mr. Huch from deep sleep!
