My thoughts: Fablehaven II: Rise of the Evening Star

At the end of the school year, Kendra and her brother Seth find themselves racing back to Fablehaven, a refuge for mythical and magical creatures. Grandpa Sorenson, the caretaker, invites three specialists to help protect the property from the Society of the Evening Star, an ancient organization determined to infiltrate the preserve and steal a hidden artifact of great power. Time is running out. If the artifact falls into the wrong hands, it could mean the downfall of other preserves and possibly the world. 

I know I don't have an article written about the first book of the Fablehaven Series, but I just want to share my thoughts about this…intense, action packed, humorous, action packed (I just have to say it again!) adventure, kid's book.

The Good: There're a few things I really liked: (1) the author described the characters, their actions, the places, things, etc nicely—not too vague but also not too substantial. (2) The words the author used are rich and colorful don't get me wrong, though, you still don't have to read the book beside a dictionary.

The Bad: the start was a bit slow for me; while I was reading the first few chapters I was thinking that the first book was definitely better…well, I was wrong.

My Thoughts: Fablehaven II is one of the most thrilling children's book I've ever read. Both in book I and II Fablehaven will be in danger; I was thinking that we're going to start all over again; Fablehaven will be in danger, it will be saved. . .blah blah—like what the other series do—well, I was wrong, again.

The second book for me was more intense, heart stopping and action packed compared to the first; I don't know why but my guess is it's because the stakes were much higher, they were dealing with stronger enemies and Fablehaven wasn't completely saved and all that.

A lot of people got sick some almost died, a lot of secrets were exposed, you don't know who the rebels are . . . in short, there are a lot of twists to keep you reading.

When I was just starting to read I only read one chapter a day because like what I said: the start was kind of boring—for me at least—but when the climax was peaking that was when my two sleepless nights started. In return I got a headache. Although I wouldn't say that it was worth it—because I don't like having headaches—I was glad that I finished the book.

The Ending: A big cliffhanger you'll definitely want to read the third book!

My Rating: 4.5 ( ½)

P.S. Fablehaven II: Rise of the Evening Star was a pleasure reading! 
P.P.S. This is my first book review this year, and after a while . . .
