I hated the books but loved listening to it! I love the different voices and the CRAZY twists and turns!
best book i ever read!
The action and intrigue of this installment left me with my jaw hanging open. I especially enjoyed reading the parts about Seth as he discovers his new abilities. The world of Fablehaven really expanded in this book. We are introduced to dragons (and fairy dragons), lectoblixes, demons, wizards, and wraiths. As the creatures get bigger, the story gets darker and the stakes are raised higher and higher. Despite the increased action and danger, the book was still appropriate for children. I would strongly recommend these books as gifts or something to read together as a family.
Definitely one of the best books in the series so far! This is the Rocky IV of the series most definitely! The plot is getting thicker and the book leaves you wanting more! The monsters are meaner and the villains are nastier and the heroes are braver! Brandon Mull is a masterful story teller and the illustrations by Brandon Dorman are perfect for the tale. This series is a great series for anyone of teenage to adult age and a perfect book to listen on CD.
I have now listened to the first four volumes on cd and I have loved everyone, but this one has been my favorite so far. Filled with lots of action and twists and turns it keeps you on the edge of your seat all the way through. I also appreciate the talents of the narrator, his voices for each character are priceless. I can't wait to listen to volume 5. I'll have to stand in line for volume 5 though, because all of my family are big Fablehaven fans too.
I just finished #4 & can't wait for #5! This one is jam-packed w/action in every chapter from start to finish. Love that Seth is coming into his own, that questions to mysteries are being answered, stingbulbs? a lectoblix? wow!...enjoyed each book as it came out & look forward to the next. I would recommend this series to all ages from 8 to 80.
what an awesome book now the problem is having to fight over the rereading schedule in the house
The Fablehaven series just keeps getting better!I bought #4 hoping it would be a keeper like the other three and I wasn't disappointed.
Every character we have come to know throughout the series has grown and matured, even Seth! :) Mr. Mull has given each character their own quirks, strengths and voice. The story flowed well and the descriptions of the magical places were just right. The magical creatures Mr. Mull introduced were all believable (I love that one has a crush on Kendra), scary and unique.
There is plenty of laughs, tension, and twists to keep this story moving right up to the end and the betrayal. (Personal prideful note: I guessed the person in book 3 but was thrown off by the personality in book 4 so didn't suspect!)
And once again, I LOVE the lessons taught throughout the book!
Thank you, Brandon Mull, for teaching good life lessons! And thank you for writing a clean book that I can recommend to any parent or YA without any trepidation!
i have read all of the books and they are all great but i love this one the most!It wraps up most of the mysteries up at the end and action pack all the way through.The other thing i loved is that it left me wanting more and want to know what happens to warren all of them.its a fantastic book and i can relate to kendra and the other characters so much.
Though I have loved all of the Fablehaven books, this one is my favorite so far! It is packed with action from start to finish. I would recommend it for all ages from pre-teen to rocking chair old!
