Fablehaven: Rise of the Evening Star - Brandon Mull

This is the second book in the Fablehaven series and I feel that Brandon has gotten a better feel for the characters and how people respond to them.  I really liked Seth in the first book but I enjoyed his character so much more in the second.  He is just a good kid that does stuff that turns out bad.  Kendra's character is so good that sometimes it is sickening but I just power thought the chapters that deal mainly with her.

My Grade: B

At the end of the school year, Kendra and her brother Seth find themselves racing back to Fablehaven, a refuge for mythical and magical creatures. Grandpa Sorenson, the caretaker, invites three specialists -- a potion master, a magical relics collector, and a mystical creature trapper -- to help protect the property from the Society of the Evening Star, an ancient organization determined to infiltrate the preserve and steal a hidden artifact of great power. Time is running out. The Evening Star is storming the gates. If the artifact falls into the wrong hands, it could mean the downfall of other preserves and possibly the world. Will Kendra learn to use her fairy gifts in time? Will Seth stay out of trouble?

Age Range: 8-12
