Goodreads Description:

For centuries mystical creatures of all description were gathered into a hidden refuge called Fablehaven to prevent their extinction. The sanctuary survives today as one of the last strongholds of true magic. Enchanting? Absolutely. Exciting? You bet. Safe? Well, actually, quite the opposite.

Kendra and her brother, Seth, have no idea that their grandfather is the current caretaker of Fablehaven. Inside the gated woods, ancient laws keep relative order among greedy trolls, mischievous satyrs, plotting witches, spiteful imps, and jealous fairies. However, when the rules get broken — Seth is a bit too curious and reckless for his own good — powerful forces of evil are unleashed, and Kendra and her brother face the greatest challenge of their lives. To save their family, Fablehaven, and perhaps even the world, Kendra and Seth must find the courage to do what they fear most.

My Thoughts:

 

I really enjoyed this book! It somehow managed to be light and enjoyable at the same time that it was fast-paced and gripping. I did find Seth a bit annoying, when he refused to listen to Grandpa or learn from the stupid things he did. I liked Kendra because she is a lot like me; overly cautious. It was nice to see her bravery in the end. My only issue is that I don’t understand how exactly Grandma became a hen… Maybe I just missed that part.

Can’t wait to read the next book!
