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!

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
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!
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 b ...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
This is a really good series!
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.
Fablehaven staying true to its promise NONE WHO ENTER WILL LEAVE UNCHANGED is such an amazng book! it is packed with adventure, in reading it, it has opened a portal to a new world revealing wonderful and evil mystical beings,packed with adventure for everyone,and lessons to learn as well.Reading it, I vividly imagined the fairies, the house, the beautiful garden and the pond, characters and other events and places. AMAZING!!!
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.
I read all of these books 1-3 and on, I really find them entertaining I really like Brandon's books, I think they are great for me and I am enjoying them just as if I were 12 who says a 20 year old can't read it. Its full of doom and fantasy and I love it!
