Read in May, 2010

OK, OK–so I read the second Fablehaven book. Though I like the premise--a preserve for endangered mythical creatures, and the characters--an obedient and timid but brave in the clutches big sister and a little brother who acts first and considers later, the plot felt pretty simple. Mostly it involves lots of fights with evil creatures. A point of interest–the author introduces in this book the prison for demons which is called Zzyzx. We’ve always known this name as a road in the middle of the desert along I-15 south of Las Vegas. Always thought it sounded like a place Dr. Seuss invented, but apparently the defunct town and the road have appeared in lots of places symbolizing a road to nowhere. I may read the other books in this series, but I’ll wait until I can get them from the library. (Right now all copies of all books by Brandon Mull in the Orem library are checked out with multiple holds pending.)
