Rise of the Evening Star, the second installment of the Fablehaven series is more dynamic and more complex than the first one. More mysteries, more adventures take place, and keep you absorbed throughout the story.

The world-building in the first book, Fablehaven, was incomplete and unrefined, now the magical world of Fablehaven begins to unfold, as well as more and more special abilities of Kendra.

Colorful and varied magic is created in Rise of the Evening Star. It is so diverse both in its crea

My first venture to the magical world of Fablehaven was truly an unforgettable one. I just couldn’t stop raving about it to every bookish person I know. Truth be told, I read Harry Potter series because a number of critics and authors compared Fablehaven to it(and yes, I just read Harry Potter this year. Please, don’t kill me.) I wanted to prolong the pleasure in reading the entire Fablehaven series so I didn’t read the 2nd book immediately after the 1st one. I finally decided to revisit Fableha ...more

Kendra and Seth can't wait for the end of the school year so that they can return to visit their grandparents at Fablehaven. A few days before the school year ends, a scabby kobold appears in her class. The kobold appears normal to everybody except Kendra. With the aid of a kobold exterminator they get rid of him and are then swiftly evacuated to Fablehaven for their own safety. Once there, they find out that the Society of the Evening Star (which opposes preserves such as Fablehaven) has gotten ...more

I liked the sequel to Fablehaven even better than Fablehaven itself. The author was able to flesh out the characters and each gained a lot of depth.

I read Fablehaven last night, and the sequel, Rise of the Evening Star, tonight, so they're quick reads at 3-4 hours each. (Thank you writer's strike and sick, clingy kids who INSIST on me holding them and not minding me reading at the same time!!!)

They’re fantasy, not unlike Harry Potter but more infused with value of the family. No Dudley or mean

Kendra and Seth return to Fablehaven to discover more of what they don't know (and that can kill them) and save the day. Seth, now a year older, is a little wiser and doesn't find himself in as much trouble, but again, it is Kendra who comes through.

By the way, in both books, while Kendra is the reluctant heroine, she is helped by others, so this isn't some supergirl of unlimited capabilities or powers.

I get the feeling, in reading these first two books in the series, that these two young advent

All right. This book was a mess. By about page 300 I was just zipping through it, so as to have the vital information for the next installment, because A and C promised it gets better. Sigh.

As usual, Mull delivers on imaginative world building, and the pace never slows, but his logical foundation is so weak I don't dare examine it--one too-direct breath could knock the whole thing over.

The events in Rise of the Evening Star pick up months after where Fablehaven left off. It continues the adventures of Kendra and Seth Sorensen as they become embroiled in an insidious plot by the forces of evil to obtain powerful, magical items and unleash a nearly unstoppable horror.

Mull deftly continues to add to the wonders of the world that is Fablehaven, giving the reader new exciting storyline and plots while nimbly threading in those from the previous book.

His writing etches the framework

GREAT writing. If you liked Harry Potter, you'll LOVE this one. The writing is tighter, the characters not as....angst-filled, a little more real, I think.
The world is so beautiful and yet real-feeling. There is a great sense of morality without the SLAP of it in your face. NO force feeding here, just a delightful romp, jog and then a mad-dash to the climax in a world of majesty and power that is both magical and compelling.
LOVED it. EVERY person (at least a dozen) I have recommended it to (even

I think this book was better then the first. I am still not drawn to the main characters. I wish Kendra would take some more initiative and try to find out what her talents and powers are from being made fairy kind. There is so much build up to that and it is left hanging again in this book like it was in the first. I wish Seth would set a better example in the book, he is constantly disobeying, I was not thrilled with the things the children did in this book, i.e. sneaking out of their parents ...more

This book was really awesome. I thoroughly enjoyed it with all of its fairy and mythological creatures. Seth and Kendra are two siblings who discovered that their grandparents were the caretakers of a magical menagerie in the first installment, Fablehaven. In this one, the evil Evening Star is trying to make their move against Fablehaven, and the siblings have to use all their wits and courage to defend the menagerie and the world. Kendra was awesome, smart, motivated, and responsible. She was j ...more

“Sometimes the most preposterous lies are the most believable.”

4 stars.

Certainly an improvement from the first book, but Seth is still an idiot. Kendra has become the most capable out of the both of them, but I can see Seth learning somewhat. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

Sorry this is such a short review. :P

3 1/2 stars. I enjoyed this book slightly more than I did the first one. I like a little more action/adventure/intrigue to my fantasy novels and this one delivered in comparison. I did not like how neither of the main characters played much of a role in the climaxing moments of the second book. Kendra WAS acceptably involved in the first novel.

I'm a Potter fan, I admit it, so permit me my little rant. In the Harry Potter books the characters have great mentors but in the crucial deciding moment

Looks like I'm done with Fablehaven.

I can see why people like these books - and especially the middle grade demographic they are written for - but they're just not for me. I find it too difficult to enjoy a book in which I really dislike one of the two main protagonists.

I have read and enjoyed Middle Grade books in the past, but I think I'll probably give a pass to the rest of the series.

Quiero aclarar y reafirmar que esta saga es fantástica.

Puede que sea algo más infantil que otras, que no esté bien fundamentada o que no sea tan conocida... pero es una lectura muy imaginativa, adictiva y va evolucionando en cada libro.

Tanto la historia como los personajes enganchan de una manera brutal; Fablehaven es un mundo increíble, de ensueño y repleto de magia.

Fablehaven is flat and forgettable. There is plenty of action and adventure, but it is soon forgotten when the book is finished.

However, I did have to give this book the dubious honor of being labeled “rubbish”. Mull has an uncanny knack for writing offensive things about Indians. This book had children playing on a Foosball table populated with cowboys and Indians – complete with headdresses and bare chests. For those struggling to wrap their heads around this, an illustration is included on pa

I love Seth and Kendra's brother/sister relationship. They're hilarious, funny, and brave. I'm happy that Warren was brought back, I can't wait to get a little more of him.

Mejor que el primero de la saga. La historia empieza tomar más forma y a verse dentro de un universo más grande que el propio libro, sin embargo, aun existen ciertos conflictos que generan gran expectativa pero al final se resuelvan de manera muy sencilla.
El final ((view spoiler)) deja la trama servida para un buen tomo 3 y para una historia más oscura y madura, toca darle una oportunidad.
