I read the first and adored it, the story was tight and unique and fast. I read the second and loved it even more, though the cliffhanger annoyed me. The series pace quickened even more in the third, and the fourth did not let me down for action, strong characters, unique creatures and situations - but now I have to wait for the LAST book to come!! Brandon Mull can write an action sequence like no one else, excellent visuals with rapid fire motion that I can follow. Oftentimes I find written.

I read the first and adored it, the story was tight and unique and fast. I read the second and loved it even more, though the cliffhanger annoyed me.

Brandon Mull can write an action sequence like no one else, excellent visuals with rapid fire motion that I can follow. Oftentimes I find written. Oftentimes I find written action to be difficult to follow, either too choppy and jerky or far too polished to feel real.
Mull has it down for sure. What most endears me to these books is his use of less common mythology for the creatures - we don't have the typical regurgitation of "Lord of the Rings" based archetypes, nor did he completely pull the mythical beings out of his ass.
They are based on existing types, and well blended with what might be considered "accepted" lore, and lesser known but pre-existing lore. This means the world to me, and makes the unfolding story a constant delightful discovery. A bit darker than the last three books, this one contains a couple of good, startling revelations about characters you have known and liked in the prior - and leaves just enough room at the end to keep your feet dangling.
I hope the conclusion keeps up with the quality of the series thus far, it is one of my favorites to pass on to my customers so far. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Want to Read saving…. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Other editions.

It is a completely separate series from Fablehaven, so its going to be a different overarching storyline. We will no longer be focusing on the artifacts presumably. It is going to be in the same universe, with the same characters, and also some new ones! The story is going to focus on the dragons in the fablehaven universe exciting!

In this one they visit a preserve for dragons, wyrmroost, strange changes are wrought in Seth, and the society go farther than they ever have. Mar 26, Garrett rated it it was amazing. I had a hard time putting this book down. I read all pages in about 8 hours.
I forced myself to go to bed even though I was not done with the book, but I was getting really tired and couldn't keep my eyes open. OK, so let's break it down: Characters: There were a couple new characters and surprises on existing ones.
I am totally liking Seth now that he is not quite so annoying and "stupid" in that little brother way. And I loved it when Seth was taunting the poison dragon. Too funny! Brandon I had a hard time putting this book down. Brandon is great at making likable as well as ones we love to hate and well-rounded characters. He is also doing even better at giving each character a unique voice. Setting: The dragon sanctuary was cool and Brandon did a good job in narrating their passage through mazes and traps.
Conflict: The action was even more intense and scattered throughout the book on this one, which I feel was a great improvement over the previous books. Plot: I like how Brandon makes each book feel complete, and yet we know there is more to come.
In fact, one more book in the series, to be precise. Interesting twist near the end too. Text: Brandon is becoming a great writer. I anxiously await the final book in the series. View all 4 comments.
