When net galley and the publisher don't approve my request to read the arc of this book I feel disappointed and felt like a worthless reader. (I requested once and been denied so I'm not going to repeat the experience. Feeling bitter, hahaha). For a time, I don't want to read. But the experience can be forgotten in time. (Still bitter, hehe).

Anyway, this book is good. Better good that it's precedence. The only thing that worries me in this particular book is Kendra becomes a little bitch (given

Okay everyone. I finished it. I finished it and I'm crying. Are you happy now? I need the third book stat. That cliffhanger was worse than Percabeth in Tartarus. I'm not even kidding. I feel like my heart was ripped out of my freaking chest. Goodbye cruel world.

Oh my god. OH MY GOD. OOOOOOHHHHHH MYYYYY GAWD! The cliffhanger in this book was as bad/good (depending how you look at it) as the one in the Mark of Athena. I never thought I would see a cliffhanger match up to that one. Why? Why Brandon Mull? Why do you have to do this to me? I don’t even know when the next one will come out.

As for the rest of the book, I found the first two thirds kind of boring. There was little to no action from that part and no real feeling of a threat. A lot of character

If you love wildly imaginative story and world building. If you love coming of age stories and all the glorious tropes that come with them. If you are 32 with the maturity level of a 12 year old (wich I am!). If you love reading to your kids and over acting all the characters (wich I do!). Then you absolutely have to check out the fablehaven series. Thank me later.

I have a few issues with this one (I won't share the specifics as it would be majorly spoilerific). However, most of it can be summed up as my not being a huge fan of transitional books, and this being a transitional book. Things tend to happen that never had to happen, just to set up the next step in the story. Excellent transitions are pretty seamlessly done and you don't even realize you're being steered along. By the time I reached the end of this, I knew it was a way to get from point A to ...more

I loved this riveting, wildly imaginative fantasy, the second entry in Brandon Mull's "Dragonwatch" series, which is a follow-up to his wonderful "Fablehaven" series. Yes, there is a cliffhanger, but I was expecting it, and there are only a few months to wait for the next book. Apparently, like "Fablehaven," this will be a five-book series. Also, I want to check out the author's other fantasy series, "Beyonders" and "Five Kingdoms."

5/5 Stars

I have been following Kendra and Seth's adventures for almost ten years, I'm now twenty, and yet I never seem to outgrow these characters or stop finding them interesting. This series holds such a special place in my heart. I was weary going into both this book and it's predecessor because spin off series in general make me nervous, I was terrified I wasn't going to like it as much as I did the original series, but there is something so fresh and new about t
This book was so disappointing. It had such promise too, and seems more like the original Fablehaven series in parts. But I can’t get over how things ended in Stormguard Castle. (view spoiler) ...more

Review by Brandon (my husband):
Many people have a place they love to go where imagination runs wild and reality is forgotten, the Fablehaven universe is that place for me, I’m so glad Dragowatch continues the adventure. This is a middle grade fantasy adventure series.

Seth is back along with his humor; his interactions with other characters are pure entertainment. Kendra helps balance Seth with her thoughtful nature and if I had a journey through the Bewilderness I’d pick Kendra every time. Tha

Seth still hasn't grown up and now with Knox, you have to deal with two immature boys who don't think beyond themselves. The storyline follows the same pattern as the previous book and it's getting old. The cliffhanger ending is truly awful!

WRATH OF THE DRAGONS is another release from this author that Fablehaven fans will love. The story is full of dragons and other magical creatures, adventurous quests full of danger, and favorite characters along with a few new ones. If you're a fan of the original series or this new one, this is one story not to miss!

I'll be honest... the beginning of this story was fairly slow. Even my son, who is a huge Fablehaven fan, didn't get too far into it before he picked up another book. However, it's

This series just gets better and better. The characters are growing, the stakes are increasing, and that ending! Can't wait until October for the next one.

This book in my opinion is one of the best in the series, maybe even one of the best book I've read ever. The character growth in this book is fantastic, and it reminds me of Malcolm X, one of the subject we are learning about in school, because this book emphasizes how anybody can transform under the right circumstances, whether willingly or not. Seth after turning the key, forgets his identity entirely. He transformed because Ronodin, the dark unicorn, tricked Seth into turning evil while taki ...more

Brandon Mull is one of my favorite authors. And my daughters love his books as well. His books are a must read at our house. In fact, this book has been fought over. You know it’s good when that happens!

This book picks up where the first Dragonwatch left off. If you haven’t read that one, you really need to read it. Before you read any more of this review or before you read this one.

I love how Brandon Mull has kept Seth and Kendra consistent throughout both the Fablehaven series and this one. Th

This is more like the Brandon Mull I remember. Good books, don't get me wrong, but nothing so fantastic I want to dive right into the next one. His first in the series was head and shoulders above this one. So much so, that I knew I had to read this.

I struggled here. The cliff-hanger ending seemed contrived.

Oh my goodness! This book is crazy!

I was so excited to get back into the Fablehaven world. Everytime I read a book from Brandon Mull, I am reminded of how much I love this universe! This book fits perfectly into the original series and takes us on another adventure.

I loved the way the original characters are focused on. Kendra and Seth are again at the heart of the story. Loved seeing Tanu again. The new characters like their cousins Knox and Tess are especially fun. They add a fun dimension to

Reading this book has reminded me of three things: 1) I don’t like reading books in a series that isn’t complete because I forget what happens between reading the books (and who has time to reread the first one?); 2) Compared to the other genres I enjoy, fantasy is rarely visited by me. Learning a whole new fantastical world, with its its lingo and rules, is a challenge, but if written well, I find I still enjoy it; and 3) I really liked the first book of this series.

Brandon Mull is a master of fantasy. He does an excellent job of creating other worlds - almost too good of a job at times. The worlds and characters are real and very believable. Readers find themselves being pulled in to the story, wondering what will happen next and who will win the prize.

In Wrath of the Dragon King, Seth and Kendra, caretakers of Wyrmroost,  have incurred the wrath of Celebrant, king of the dragons. As a result Celebrant has done something unheard of - declared war on the hu

(Genre: Children's fiction/fantasy) Book 2 of the Dragonwatch series, this was a fun story and I really enjoyed it except for the huge cliffhanger ending. I am not a huge fan of cliffhangers. I don't mind when stories are linked together in a series, in fact I expect it, but I don't appreciate it when the writer leaves the main characters in peril at the end of the book. It feels like they are cheating and holding the characters hostage--or at least the reader :) But otherwise, it was an enjoyab ...more

I really loved book two of Dragonwatch: Wrath of the Dragon King. The characters of Kendra and Seth have grown up so much and are faced with even more complex problems as the caretakers of Wyrmroost.It's been fun to see how they've grown into their powers and their roles as caretakers of a dragon sanctuary. They are up against such a formidable foe, Celebrant, King of Dragons. He is so powerful you wonder through the whole book how they will ever come out on top, considering Celebrant has declar ...more

It's hard to believe that Fablehaven came out in 2006-- I still want Shadow Mountain to reissue hardcovers of the first series so I can replace my well-worn ones! While I like this series, it's not quite intense enough for some of my hard-core fantasy fans when they get into 8th grade, but Dragonwatch definitely steps things up a bit.

Seth and Kendra, newly minted caretakers of the Dragon Sanctuary, are in an impossible position with Celebrant, and when he invites them to

I love this series better with each book. This is the second installment in a Fablehaven follow-up series starring the same characters at a new sanctuary.

Kendra and Seth get invited to a feast with Celebrant, the dragon king. They can't refuse, so they go to the dragon's castle where they meet new people, make allies, and collect enemies. At the feast, Celebrant declares war, believing he can win with the help of a magical stone hidden in a cursed castle. Seth and Kendra also realize they could

Wow! What a ride. Wrath of the Dragons is another heart pounding adventure in the Fablehaven world. I knew I would love it and I did., immensely. Fablehaven is one of my all-time favorite series, and this book is a wonderful addition. The author does a fantastic job of planting little plot hints throughout and seriously, what an amazing ending! There are many entertaining new characters. One in particular was mysterious, sinister, and extremely important. I love the Kendra and Seth brother and s ...more

Brandon Mull's greatest strength as an author is taking multiple unique, imaginative concepts and integrating them all into a cohesive story. He does this with Beyonders, Five Kingdoms, and the earlier Fablehaven books, and he does it with this newest novel as well. Beyond that, all of the cool concepts actually have organic reasons to be present in the story, instead of Mull just cramming them in for added fairytale wow-factor. That's hard to do.

This was a really fun book for middle grade readers. It’s book two in a series, but I was able to pick things up fairly quickly despite not reading the first one, which I attribute to skillful writing. The action and characters were enjoyable, and the dialog often made me laugh. Warning: cliffhanger ending.
