Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The hunt for new talismans continues. A passage in Patton's Journal of Secrets leads Kendra and the Knights of the Dawn on a perilous mission into a closely guarded dragon sanctuary. Quick wits; fast-breaking action.
Hollywood Reporter
The series is generating buzz as a contender in the fantasy-adventure genre to replace the Harry Potter franchise.

Interviews & Essays

Brandon Mull Interviews Seth Sorenson

Brandon: Thanks for agreeing to this interview.
Seth: I thought it was mandatory.

Brandon: It is. Tell us a little about Fablehaven.
Seth: It's kind of a secret.

Brandon: Right, but in this interview you can speak freely.
Seth: If you say so. Fablehaven is a wildlife refuge for magical creatures. My Grandpa and Grandma Sorenson are the caretakers.

Brandon: How long have you known about Fablehaven?
Seth: A couple of years.

Brandon: You're thirteen now?
Seth: Correct. This is really riveting. I'm glad you made it mandatory.

Brandon: I'm just trying to get some of the basics out there for the uninitiated. So is Fablehaven unique?
Seth: There are secret wildlife preserves for magical creatures hidden around the world. Some are specialized, like the dragon sanctuaries.

Brandon: Have you been to a dragon sanctuary?
Seth: Just once. We all almost died, but it was pretty awesome. I got to see my first dragons. We don't have dragons at Fablehaven.

Brandon: Why not?
Seth: They'd kill everybody and destroy everything.

Brandon: What kind of creatures live at Fablehaven?
Seth: You want a list? Fairies, demons, satyrs, centaurs, fog giants, naiads, dryads, nipsies, witches, trolls, ogres, brownies, astrids, leprechauns, minotaurs, dwarves, undead creatures, a golem…and plenty I haven't named. Am I supposed to include the creatures in the dungeon?

Brandon: That was sufficient. At Fablehaven, what type of creature do you like the least?
Seth: The centaurs.

Brandon: Really. I thought you might have said the demons.
Seth: We know the demons are evil. And the wraiths and stuff. The centaurs should help out more, but they don't. Centaurs are jerks.

Brandon: Favorite creatures?
Seth: The satyrs.

Brandon: Aren't they kind of selfish?
Seth: Yes, but they're fun. Newel and Doren are my best friends at Fablehaven. They've helped me get better at tennis.

Brandon: I understand you guys are currently dealing with a serious threat.
Seth: You mean the Society? The Society of the Evening Star is dedicated to stealing artifacts from preserves like Fablehaven. Their main goal is to open Zzyzx, the demon prison, which holds a horde of the worst demons in history, including the Demon King. Preserves like Fablehaven are deadly enough without the Society making everything worse.

Brandon: You seem a little young to be involved in something so dangerous.
Seth: You and my grandparents should get together and go bowling. Seems like no matter how much I prove myself, my grandparents won't give me any credit.

Brandon: You have made occasional errors in judgment that have caused some problems at Fablehaven.
Seth: Okay, that's true. But my stupidest mistakes came partly because I didn't fully get what was going on at Fablehaven and I was insanely curious. I'm smarter than I used to be. Besides, everyone makes mistakes. Haven't you?

Brandon: I have. But I don't think I've ever put lives in danger.
Seth: Have you ever been to a secret wildlife park full of magical creatures?

Brandon: Not really.
Seth: There you go. If I spent all day typing in my basement, I probably wouldn't have put many lives at risk either. I'm just saying.

Brandon: You have a point. The preserves are inherently dangerous.
Seth: A wildlife preserve in Africa, like with lions and water buffalo and hippos and elephants, would be a dangerous place, right?

Brandon: Yes.
Seth: You wouldn't go there and roam around alone.

Brandon: Probably not. I'd at least stay in my car, or want a bunch of guides with guns.
Seth: Now imagine you're at a wildlife park with minotaurs and giants and dragons.

Brandon: I get the point.
Seth: Even experienced adults get eaten at these magical preserves. So far, I'm doing pretty well.

Brandon: Any parting words?
Seth: Everyone likes to criticize me, but one day I'll be the caretaker of Fablehaven. Just you wait.

Brandon: Not Kendra?
Seth: If everything goes wrong, maybe. But I more picture her as president and founding member of the Save the Fairies Foundation.

Brandon: She has bailed you out before. Rescued you.
Seth: What are you trying to do, stir things up? Kendra is great. Someday she might make a fine, hesitant, nervous caretaker.

Brandon: Mind if I tell her what you said?
Seth: Put it in a book, she'll get the news quicker.

Brandon: She's a big reader?
Seth: You guessed it.

Brandon: You're not?
Seth: Depends on the book. Is this over? You mentioned parting words...

Brandon: Sure. Thanks for your time.
Seth: I had no choice, but you're welcome.

    Fantastic!

    This is the best series I have come across since Harry Potter. The characters are wonderful, but the thing I love most about Fablehaven is that I can't quite figure out what is going to happen next. The plot is so well-developed and complex that it keeps me constantly at the edge of my seat! This is a fantastic series for any age, and I definitely think it belongs in my permanent library!

    If you enjoyed Fablehaven as much as I have, you might also like the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan.

    The ending was really disapointing I can't believe Brandon Mull made _ _ _ _ _ A TRATIOR I HAD HIGH HOPES FOR HIM AND _ _ _ _ _ _ just their adventure at Wyrmroost was enough without him being a tratior not to mention he turned out to be Navarog THE EVIL DEMON DRAGON PRINCE! AHHHH! THIS IS SO OUTRAGINGE! THE BOOK WAS GREAT AND SUSPENSFUL BEFORE THAT! BUT NOOOOOO HE COULDN'T JUST LEAVE IT AT THAT THEY HAD TO MAKE THE ENDING WITH A TRAITOR THAT NO ONE IN THE WORLD WOULD EVER SUSPECT! AND RUIN THE BOOK IN THE PROSSES! AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I AM SO FRUSTRATED!

    Secrets of the Dragon Sanctuary is full of thrills, chills and good reading!

    The long awaited 4th book in the Fablehaven series has finally arrived and I practically gobbled it up in one sitting. While at home for winter break, Kendra finds herself in mortal danger from the evil Spinx - the leader of the Society of the Evening Star.

    Kendra and Seth soon find themselves back with their grandparents at Fablehaven - an animal perserve for magical creatures. Because Kendra is "fairykind" - kissed by the fairies - she is the only one who is able to decipher the clues from Patton's secret jounal that will lead them to a hidden artifact the Spinx is determined to steal.

    Will the Knights of the Dawn be able to safely enter the dragon sanctuary to recover the artifact before the Spinx? Does Seth continue to disobey the rules? Has Vanessa really changed her ways? Is there really a spy at Fablehaven?

    This book is full of non-stop action and children of all ages will enjoy this fantasy adventure.
