    This is the BEST series ever!! I am currently re-reading the fifth book for the third time, and again,I CAN NOT put it down!! I Recommend this to anybody who is anybody, and more. Especially if you are trying to get someone to like reading more. My brother used to hate reading, in fact, it took months to finally convince him to read it, but now, HE won't put it down either!! Anyway,I think these are the best books ever, and you aren't going to get a description out of me, because there is no way to describe them, so read and find out!

    The main characters of the story, are:Seth, a young boy who honestly, I would kill if he were mine. lol. He gets into the worst mischief! But the things he does, are all for a purpose and all play a part in the ending and if he hadn't of gotten into the trouble he does, they would not have been able to survive through as many things as they did before the end.His sister is Kendra, a sweet and kind hearted young girl who although she was afraid of many things, stood up to those fears and was able to help the group through some amazing trials.Then there is a Sphinx. Who plays the part of the good guy well, but there are some tricks up his sleeve that I will not say because, it will ruin it! Honestly, I was so mad at myself. I was about halfway through the 3rd book, when I saw the 5th book in the store, picked it up, and read the inside sleeve of the front cover, only the first paragraph. I was SO mad! I thought I had ruined the rest of the books! But, honestly, didn't. There are so many twisties in this story that it kept it interesting.It's a younger adult read, kindof like the Harry Potter series is, but it's good. I liked it and I think that there is enough in it, that adults who liked the HP series will most likely like this as well.The ending is good. I did not expect to have this end the way it did. It ends good and happy like any younger adult book would, BUT, you certainly don't think it will while your into the last chapters. It doesn't look good at all.There are alot of miracles that go into making this a good story, there is humor, but innocent humor. The Satyrs are hilarious in my mind.Brandon Mull certainly did well tying the books together, there is very minimal story line that is not direct action in some way.I think it should keep your attention.Pick it up. Try it out. Tell me what you think about it.

    Probably the main thing I noticed about this book was the feeling you get as you go through the series. You feel as if the plot grows with each detail Kendra and Seth learn about the magical civilization that has been living right under world's nose for as long as history itself. As I describe it to my friends, the first book is sorta good, the second book is good, the third book is really good, the fourth book is amazing, and by the time you get to the fifth book, you are so engaged in the series, unable to close the covers, as if the second you do, it will all just disappear.

    I just finished my adventures in Fablehaven and to be perfectly honest, I feel sad that it's over with. I picked up the Kindle edition complete series of Fablehaven (all five books) after reading the excellent reviews - mostly adults who'd said they'd picked up the books for their kids but had fallen in love with the series and read all of the books themselves, first. I am already planning to re-read the books in the very near future!The series has several main characters although the two most prominent are Seth and Kendra Sorensen, a brother and sister duo who find out that their father's parents are caretakers of a magical preserve. The preserve itself has light and dark magical creatures, and both can be hazardous to humans. Kendra is a reserved, obey-the-rules kind of person, whereas her younger brother Seth is reckless and takes action without prior thought. Together, throughout the series, they help conquer dark magic that intends to dismantle the preserves and eventually open the demon prison, which would end the world as they know it.I absolutely loved the books. They are well written and can be enjoyed by both older children and adults alike. The author manages to temper very serious situations in which there is death with humor and I found myself both tearing up and laughing during all of the books. I love the satyrs, Newel and Doren, and their inherent ability to have other responsibilities just when something potentially dangerous comes along. Their sense of humor (along with Seth's) helps keep the books from being too serious. The occasional illustrations are cool although the author does a very good job of being descriptive enough that you can envision it in your head, without getting bogged down with the details. I adore Hugo, the golem, who the fairies eventually give free will to, and how he adores and protects Seth and Kendra. I am terribly sad that I've finished the books and won't get to experience the thrill of first-time reading them again.If you enjoyed Harry Potter even in the slightest, you should put these books on your "to-read" list. This is not to say that they are the same as the Harry Potter books, but in my opinion, as just as unique and good. Highly recommend for all - although for children I would say what Amazon says - ages 9 and up.

    If you liked Harry Potter Boxset, you have to at least try Fablehaven. Both series are excellent and target a similar audience.The first 4 books of Fablehaven earned a solid 5 stars due to great humor, difficult social situations, enjoyable characters, and a compelling storyline. The writing style is simple, but of excellent quality. Though it's fantasy, there is enough puzzle solving to read almost like a mystery. The last book was 3 stars because while it still had some great moments, the character interaction and growth was somewhat overshadowed by a formulaic end battle with a few weak attempts at adding some romance toward the end. The last book wasn't awful, but it lost a star for the series. I was pretty much glued to this series from about the 3rd chapter until the last half of the last book.This series is true Children's or Young Adult. The main characters are children. The violence is not described in detail (yay!). There is no sex (yay!) and nothing truly romantic (*sigh*). This series is not about gender or race, but if I were in a book club, I'd be interested to hear what other people thought of how gender and race were treated in this book. There were a variety of gender roles, occasionally modern, but often very traditional. I don't think any racial allegory was intended, but I think that would be a discussion-worthy topic as well.

    I really liked this entire series. I thought that the series and the characters matured from book to book and I was consistently entertained by the stories. While they are sometimes predictable (they are written for a younger audience, after all), there were certainly twists and turns along the way that I didn’t see coming. The last book was a bit slow to start, but that didn’t detract from the overall entertainment value. I liked they way that the book handled the maturation of the main child characters – not making them too grown up too fast – as well as the relationships that were created between characters. Overall, a solid series.

    Another great bookset. The first book started a bit slow for me, but once the secrets started to reveal themselves, then the book became a lot of fun to read. One thing that I really enjoyed with this series is that the books seem to be one long story split across the books as oppposed to 5 books that had overlapping stories. I was a bit frustrated at times of how Seth kept making poor decisions, but things turned out well.There was also some inspiring counsel given from a relative to Seth which I really enjoyed. This is a great book series with some good messages for our youth. I enjoyed it, and I enjoyed seeing Kendra be a heroine.

    My kids got me to read this set, and I got hooked! The story moves fast and has so many unexpected twists that it was a really fun ride. I loved that the author inserted little bits of wisdom along the lines of making good choices and facing the consequences of your choices. Great set of books!

    This entire series was absolutely fantastic. It's meant for younger readers but I love it. I've restarted the series 4 times, each before a new book came out. The imaginative plot line and characters make it a pleasure to read. Even as a 16 year old.. It's really quite fantastic.

    I read this series one after another, so the books all kind of blur together. Overall I was entertained by the story. It doesn't go into my list of favorites, but I enjoyed them.

    I was 27, never able to finish a novel all the way through, and picked up the first book in this series. It was my nephew's book and was sitting on the shelf in the living room when I saw it. I was home by myself and bored, so I started reading it. I found myself blasting through it, and ended up finishing in a weeks time. Thus began my addiction to books. I bought the whole series of five books and read them. Reading is one of my favorite past times now.

    Fablehaven is a great fantasy series. I love what Brandon Mull has done with this storyline and all the places he has taken it. The series starts out with Kendra and her brother Seth who have been sentenced to spend their summer vacation with their grandparents while their parents go on a cruise. The kids disappointment suddenly vanishes when they discover that their mysterious grandparents are actually the caretakers for a preserve for magical and mystical creatures. The kids have fun exploring Fablehaven (Seth probably a little bit too much) but discover that all is not well within Fablehaven. The dark forces of evil are trying to destroy Fablehaven, and everything goes wrong! It's up to Kendra and Seth to stop it! These books are so great and have valuable lessons in them for kids. They explore themes such as the consequences of one's actions, love and friendship, trust, and good vs. evil. They are so much fun to read and its fun watching Kendra and Seth grow as they struggle to save Fablehaven and other preserves like it around the world!

    I thought that the Fablehaven series was amazing. This is the second time that I have read this series and it just gets better and better each time. I think that this series should be recommended to everyone because it is just that good. My favorite one in the series would have to be the Fifth one because I like the battle between both worlds. The one disappointment in the series is that the little brother always was blamed for the problems that happened and Kendra never got into trouble. I think that the little brother should have done more heroic things and developed as a shadow charmer a little more in the series. Overall I would rate this series a 9/10 because it was one of those books that if you skipped a page you would miss something important and you would be screwed for what was happening at the moment. I ended up reading the series in 3 days. I read one every night and then the other two during the day.

    Fablehaven is somewhere that I want to live. It's mysterious and an adventure. The characters are relatable and lovable. If you love fantasy then you need to read these books.

    (sigh) this has to be one of my absolute favorite series, becuse it has just enough fariy forest and the right amount of action and mysteries to have you not want to put it down! The only thing that wasnt my favorite was that every 5 chapters or so there would be a picture, but they were pretty good pictures and they didn't give away to much of the story for it to matter. So i survived and ended up having some new favorite books! :)

    Was a great series. Easy read for young adults and even those that are younger that have a somewhat advanced reading ability. I would recommend this for anyone who is into Harry Potter type mystery, some mystic animals/people, spells, and magic. Has a great spin off of fairies and dragons with a hint of vampires and demons. If you into any of these then my advice is to at least read the first will hook you in.

    Love, love, love this series! I know I might get flack for this, but I actually like it better than Harry Potter. It's not quite as dark as HP and I love how the author ties lessons and morals into the story. At the end of the book he has a list of questions for the reader think about when they finish. Our whole family has read them and we all LOVE them!

    Two sibling kids from polar opposite personalities are heroes in Fablehaven! The older sister Kendra is a RULE Follower like most of first-born siblings can relate to. The younger brother Seth is a BRAVE Adventurer like most last-born siblings can relate to. And of course we NEED BOTH Honor and Courage if we are going to survive! So YES she is right and YES he is right TOO!

    A very different approach to fantasy.A different perspective on mythical creatures and living amongst them. The first few chapters of the first book are little slow, but once you get into it, you cannot stop reading. I am a fan of the uprising author, Mull. All his books are really good!

    One of my all time favorites! The writing is exceptional and keeps you in the story right next to the characters. I can't wait till my kids are old enough to read these stories.

    Awesome!When I read I typically prefer fantasy books, so this book seemed like a good pick for me as soon as I read the title. I wasn't sure what to expect from this series at first, to be honest when I picked this book up I expected it to be a casual read to fill time. I was very wrong, after the first few chapter I found that I couldn't put these books down. These 5 books had the perfect blend of action, adventure, and fantasy. I loved the character development it was very realistic. I also loved the diversity in the characters' personalities and their dynamics with each other. The only thing I can think of that I had a problem with this book series was all the plot twists, but the plot twists were good and I felt like they weren't overdone. So I have more of a love/hate relationship with the plot twists. I would recommend this book to people who prefer fantasy with action and adventure added to the mix.

    Reread these with my youngers who didn’t remember it when I read it to them a long time ago. They are 15 and 17 now! We all just read it on our own and borrowed another set from the library. Lots of conversation about characters and choices. We each blazed through the series in a week. I think I liked them more this time around. Just a fun family-friendly fantasy with plenty of things to talk about. I remember when I read it to my oldest kids, who were very young, that I edited a lot out about boys and crushes and other silly adolescent topics. Those of course don’t matter now and I didn’t feel like anything needed to be edited.

    I read these books about two years ago but I can still vision what happens in the story clearly in my head. I love the make up of the characters and how the twins are so invested in the magical world living in their back yard. The stories are anything but ordinary. Brandon Mulls imagination came to life in these books and I absolutly love them. I would reccomend this book to anyone of any age looking for a thrilling novel series to read.
