FABLEHAVEN book #1
By: Brandon Mull
Review by goodreads:
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.
I really thought it was going to be kind of a boring book because it did start with a slow start and I was like when will they ever going to get there. The thing is since the moment the kids where in their grandfather house I liked it! I mean come on! is a very big house for kids where you can do whatever you can- WAIT! there is this place called Fablehaven where there are trolls, satyrs, witches, fairies… not the cute one but the “mean” ones too!.
To see the fairies you have to drink a special milk and there is this mirror where the fairies love to see themselves in it. One of parts I liked was when the grandfather told Kendra to look where the keys he gave her can open stuff like a doll house and such and she finds a diary where it says something…. BUT YOU HAVE TO READ THE BOOK muahahaha.
And their grandmother was the chicken! at least they saved her… anyway it is an awesome fantasy book so you should read this start of an adventure where seen witches and big bad troll is something kind of common. Good read <3!
