Enough to satisfy the fantasy readers

When Kendra and Seth are sent to live with their grandparents over the summer, it seems like everyone - and every thing is against them. Inside you will get your fill of almost every kind of fantasy creature imaginable. From faries to magicians, you have got a good fill of imagination - and you can bet there's more than plenty of imagination mixed into each and every page.

Even though this book is the second in the Fablehaven series, it can be read as a stand alone novel, as I have read. However, it was very healthy fuel for my creativity and I find myself wanting to go back and read the entire series. It's so full of action, that you raelly don't have a momment to stop and pick at the plot, or the characters, or anything else that may be wrong. It's mostly told from Kendra's point of view, but there are snippetrs in Seth's poitn of view - both are equally interesting, making for a clever read for both genders.

The ending was the saddest, best-est part. It required a bit of thinking skills, and the plot took a twist I would have never seen coming. Kendra is a wonderfully strong character and I saw that no one could change that at the ending. For those fantasy readers, I recommend this one to you.
