reminds me of the spiderwick chronicles just better.i have just noticed how much of a drama queen kendra is. It was hard to determine what rating to give this book I think 2.5 is my verdict For interesting concept I d give it four stars but for execution delivery only two stars On fulfilling expectations I d give it one star This is one of the most disappointing reads I ve come across Thankfully the final few chapters were decent, so that saved the book from being a dismal failure in my mind Without giving away too much of the plot, I must say that this book is NOT really about caring for ma It was hard to determine what rating to give this book I think 2.5 is my verdict For interesting concept I

chapters were decent, so that saved the book from being a dismal failure in my mind Without giving away too much of the plot, I must say that this book is NOT really about caring for magical creatures on some sort of enchanted preserve It is rather about all the stupid things the kids staying there do that messes things up, gets other people in trouble, unleashes terrible creatures, and makes things pretty crummy And, yes, I felt that most of the characters were pretty dumb certainly not very likable Even the Grandpa I think he was supposed to be wise, as he is in charge of the whole preserve doesn t really have a clue what to do half the time And his half truths and lack of confidence in the children leads to many problems that could have been avoided had he beenopen and also if the kids had been less obnoxious, selfish and stupid Alas, I really didn t care if an evil beast ate up the little brother after he went wandering through parts of the preserve that he had been warned not to go Unlike the kids in Harry Potter, who usually have very good reasons for disobeying rules, Seth is just being a troublesome little boy Many of the deep issues of the tale are never resolved, like how only immortal creatures have no morals The writing style was also not that great A few of the scenes were quite good, but most of the story lagged Also, a few parts just seemed a bit creepy weird and I wondered at the appropriateness for children That is SPOILER ALERT The children see their grandmother naked at another point, she teaches them how to give a massage to a troll in order to send him into a state of ecstasy In another part, the kids have to slide down the utters tips of a giant cow Was this supposed to be funny It just seemed a bit icky to me All in all, it was a decent enough story for me to finish but I really wished the writing and character development had been good enough to really deliver what promised to be such a neat story There are much better fantasy books out there Reviewed by Me for TeensReadToo.comIt s very rare, in this day and age of Harry Potter mania and yes, I admit I m a very devoted victim to find a fantasy story that can actually hold your

and yes, I admit I m a very devoted victim to find a fantasy story that can actually hold your attention With FABLEHAVEN, though, new author Brandon Mull manages to do just that from the very first page to the last Not to mention, thank the fairies, that there s already another book planned in the series The premise is simple enough two siblings, thirteen year old Kendra and her eleven year old brother, Seth, are relegated to spending time with their paternal grandparents, Grandma and Grandpa Sorenson, while their parents enjoy a seventeen day Scandinavian cruise At first glance, that might not seem so strange, but you have to understand that their family s relationship with the grandparents Sorenson is sort of an odd one They don t visit much, they don t call in fact, Kendra and Seth don t really know their grandparents that well at all This is a forced, mandatory vacation though, so the kids don t have much choice in the matter And when they finally reach Fablehaven, where, unbeknown to them, their Grandfather is the caretaker, they re a little overwhelmed First, there were the No Trespassing and Private Property signs that gave way to one that said Certain Death Awaits Now, they find out that however pretty and secluded Fablehaven may be, there s no television, no radio, and a ton of rules not all of which make sense What follows is two weeks ofadventure, trouble, suspense, and magic than the kids could have ever dreamed of When their rash actions, and disobedience to some important rules, leads to retribution from the magical world of Fablehaven, Kendra, Seth, Grandpa Sorenson, and even Grandma, who seems to be missing, are in for a ride FABLEHAVEN is a great fantasy novel perfect for everyone, from young adults to those young at heart With a cast of characters ranging from witches to fairies, satyrs to imps, strange chickens and conniving trolls, there s definitely something for everyone I plan to give my copy of FABLEHAVEN to my ten year old son to read next, and I m pretty sure he ll enjoy it as much as I did not to mention my mom, who gets it when he s done Kudos to Mr Mull for such a great debut fantasy novel, and for giving me something absolutely wonderful to read during my Harry Potter deprived winter I can t wait for the next book in the series why can t i stop re reading this series no matter how many times i re read this i still love itand i have got the boxset, a b day present from my mom i love the whole series so much, i must buy myself the boxset. At first I was thinking, Oh great, not another story about fairies But after a while I realized that Mull puts some very interesting twists in his version of fantastical creatures His adds some great morals and gives the reader a chance to see how great kids can be, as if we somehow lose sight of their potential when we become adults A great read 4.5 Stars I don t know why I don t have an official review for this book, but suffice to say I ve lost count of the number of times I ve read it, and it will always have a special place in my heart and on my shelf.
