This is a wonderful series. It's about a preserve for mythical creatures, like fairies, giants, dragons, etc. The main characters are a brother and sister that go to visit their grandparents and find that they are the caretakers of this fantastic place. I recommend it to anyone that wants a fun story, full of imagination. I think it would be appropriate for 10 yrs. old and up, if your little reader wants something fun to read.

FYI, Fablehaven 4 is out, and 5 is on the way. Yeah!

The first of the Fablehaven series introduces us to Kendra and Seth who learn about a new magical world taken care of by their grandparents. Highly recommended for children and adults alike!

What I thought about Fable Haven Rise Of The Evening Star is that is was one of those books that kept you on the edge of your seat, and a book that you could no put down. It was about a girl named Kendra and her brother Seth, they would vist there grandparents often but theres a catch, there house and creatures around them are magical. Another great thing about the book is that it is a 5 book series!

My personal opinion is that this book (and series), is really good, like I said there are 5 books

I have now finished books one, two and three of this series. I really thought I was reading a trilogy only to find out at the end of book three that there is a book four and now I learn there is also a book five. I'm not sure I will continue but I might. I did enjoy one through three. At the end of two I just had to keep reading and ended up finishing three while the storms raged last night. These are, by the way, good to read during a stormy night. These books are intended for young audiences ...more

I like the series as a whole. The first felt kind-of like an introduction, but after that, "Wow." I love how he probably planned the whole series ahead of the time. Things I thought were minor details from the first become anything, but minor in the rest of the series.
Also, the audio books for this series are amazing. The narrator, E.B. Stevens, does an amazing job. He has different voices for the characters and all of them are so wonderful and well-done. They were a delight to listen to. He al

I love the series!! Its so awesome I tortured our doorknob! My favorite character is Seth (Don't judge me he's awesome!) Sure he gets in trouble a lot but who can blame him? He's just looking for adventure! He's funny, brave and awesome, without him the story would be boring(don't argue) I just found out that lots of people don't like Seth that much so..........SETH IS AWESOME DEAL WITH IT! (I'm not obssesed or anything I just don't like it when people say mean things about my favorite character ...more

My teenage daughter was so insistent that I read this series that she finally began reading the books aloud to me in any spare minute that she could grab my attention. It's been fun doing this together.

It all begins when Tween siblings Kendra and Seth go to stay with their elusive grandparents while their parents go on a cruise. Unbeknownst to them, they are about to vacation in a magical wildlife preserve. Here almost anything can, and does, happen.

AMAZING!!!

True to young adult fantasy, his writing is fairly simple, but tight and descriptive just the same. He is in control of this world, while at the same time seeing in awe of just what he has created. The characters are not flashy stereotypes, but subtle, down-to-earth, and very much believable. Better than Harry Potter in my book!

Don't borrow these books from the library, buy them! Your entire family will LOVE and wish to read each again and again. I read the first three books in less than a week due to the fast paced non-stop action, wonderful character development and crazy cliff hanger endings.

Brandon Mull has a great sense of humor and I like the world he has created inside and out of Fablehaven. I think the books are progressively getting better. I can't wait to read books 4 & 5.
