Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"One of the most enjoyable fantasies I've read..." — Christopher Paolini, author of the Eragon series
Children's Literature - Denise Daley
Strange things have been happening in Fablehaven. A mysterious shadow plague is slowly overtaking the once peaceful magical creatures that live there. The nipsies are like regular people except they are only about half an inch big. Some of their kingdoms have recently been attacked by other nipsies who have somehow been transformed into sinister beings. Seth is the first to discover the disturbing changes. He and his sister Kendra have been staying with their grandparents at Fablehaven. Kendra has unique abilities that can possibly help, but the situation is extremely dangerous. Kendra's grandparents reluctantly grant her permission to visit a special place where she is inducted into the Knights of the Dawn. She and several other knights immediately begin an assignment to retrieve a hidden artifact. They must find it before the Society of the Evening Star does or more evil may be released. Are Kendra and the Knights powerful enough to stop this frightening spread of evil? And who is responsible for creating this havoc? No one can be trusted as Kendra and the Knights embark on a daring journey where they encounter dragons, mystical creatures, and mirages. This gripping novel takes readers on a journey into an exciting and magical world where the forces of good and evil battle. It is Book Three in the "Fablehaven" series. Reviewer: Denise Daley

Usually, when people tell me a book was so good they couldn't put it down I just roll my eyes and think 'Yeah, whatever. Since when has there been a book like that?' Now I know: Since Grip of the Shadow Plague. I got really annoyed when I was told that I had to put the book away and do something else for awhile. I haven't felt like this about a book since Jacques's masterpiece, High Rhulain! If you can't get enough of suspense and fantasy you will LOVE this book!

Once again Mull has created another good story. I actually liked this one better than the last. It was easier to get involved with the story and characters and feel like you were right there with them. This book keep you engrossed and there were very few 'down times'. Would highly recommend this series and this book to young or old. It's just fun.

Fablehaven is by far the most entertaining kids' series I have read since Harry Potter. Each book is as enjoyable as the last, and the story just keeps getting better. I find that the more I read about Fablehaven, the more I want to know about the place...Overall, Fablehaven is an excellent read that will leave you eager for more! This series is great for both adults and children! If you enjoyed Fablehaven, you might also like the "Percy Jackson" series by Rick Riordan.

This book is thrilling and fun. I recommend this book to anyone who likes the Potter series and fiction. I could not put this book down because it was so good. (In fact I don't think I put the book down at all) It has suspense, magic, fairies, and a plague! Trust me you need to read this book... trust me just read it!

This is a great series and book. Book 3 is the best between books 1-3 and is very detailed. I like this book because it is mischevious and keeps you on the edge of your seat through out the whole book. All in all this is the best book ever!!!!

The battle was totally fast-paced, in fact so fast paced, even i couldnt keep up; and not to brag, but i retain things so well. So, everything starts with the nipsies, who have no fallen state, and have appearantly fallen. Then the fairies who become imps, not gorgeous dark fairies, then coulter and tanu disappaer, the saytrs, then dryads, then the jerky centaurs, and then the dwarfs! It's like a plauge (hint hint) or something! Can Kendra, Seth, and the gang fight back, or will Fablhaven fall?!?!
