it was amazing
bookshelves: magical-adventure-supernatural, kid, finished-series

** spoiler alert ** It was an amazing read.The story was far better than its previous one which was not bad at all in the first place.Brandon Mull's fantasy world became more rich with magical creatures both dark and good ones,more puzzles and heavy mysteries.The 1st one felt like light reading but the series is gaining momentum and getting more complicated and enriched.
This time Fablehaven was threatened by the evil society "The Evening Star".They infiltrated at Kendra and Seth's school and tricked them to retrieve an artifact.The artifact was revealed as a demon and started hunting Seth.They were about to be abducted when a friend from Fablehaven rescued them.At the Fablehaven everyone was searching for a relic which is part of a key to open a deadly demon prison.In the meanwhile they discovered there was a traitor among them.Suddenly everything became hostile and they didn't know whom to trust anymore.In the end of course Seth and Kendra's joint effort saved the day.

The major improvement was in the character development.The characters seemed more matured and not one sided to the extreme.It was no longer a strict bad boy and good girl case scenario which was a relief.I enjoyed the parts with the satyrs.They were so funny.Those funny parts were like fresh air amidst the heavy mysteries.Now I am so eager to finish this series.
