I have read the other Fablehaven books, so I was really exited for this one. Thankfully, it did not disappoint.
*SPOILERS AHEAD* Only read on with caution
I enjoyed that we saw more of Vanessa in this book, and that she is helping on the good side. I also like that Seth is accumulating new powers, though I wonder if he will turn evil, or free some wraiths or phantoms by accident. I am still mourning for Gavin, though. I really liked him, and was glad that Kendra could stop obsessing over Warren. Why did Gavin have to be a traitor? It was a good plot twist, even if I am mad, and I suspected nothing until Gavin started eating everybody. Also, I wanted to know a little more about what was going on with the centaurs. Did they attack? Did they buy Stan Sorenson's story? Did Seth return the horn? The ending was still good, and I really liked the cliffhanger. Maybe now Kendra and Seth's parents will finally believe.
My whole family has really enjoyed the Fablehaven series. This was our first introduction to the author Brandon Mull and we have since read most of his other works as well. I love the creative and fun fantasy style that entertains my wife and I and is still suitable for my younger middle grade readers. The books are a great balance fantasy that doesn't get too gruesome or dark. We listened to two of the books in this series as audio books while on long road trips and we thought that the audio was very well done.

Will Kendra escape? With the Fablehaven crew be able to get the artifacts before the Sphinx?
You know, I thought the beginning books of this series were long, but as we surge closer to the end of the series the tomes become longer, the stakes get higher and the plots more intense. While the danger was higher than in any of the previous novels, I noted in my review of the third...
