Reviews

"Familiar characters, wonderful adventures!"--Orson Scott Card, bestselling author (03/15/2017)
"Fans of Mull's popular Fablehaven books will be delighted with this rousing opener to a new sequel series, which builds upon familiar characters and plot points from the original fantasy series...The excitement of the adventure will sweep up existing fans and undoubtedly create new ones."-- (12/01/2016)

"Dragonwatch is the first follow-up volume to Brandon Mull's best-selling Fablehaven series. Siblings Kendra and Seth Sorenson live with their grandparents on a farm in Connecticut, but theirs is no ordinary pastoral life. Ever since they first drank milk from Viola the magic cow, Kendra and Seth have been able to see the fairy world. Their days are filled with enchanted swords, naiads, and unicorns; they see satyrs and ogres where their mortal cousins see only goats and bears. And that's not to mention the restless dragons being guarded at Wyrmroost, and the vengeful demons--roundly defeated at Zzyzk, the battle where Kendra killed the demon king...Mull sets up an intriguing contrast between the humdrum real world and the exhilarating fairy world Kendra and Seth experience. That mixture of the familiar and the unknown will intrigue young readers with a fondness for Tolkien's Middle-earth. The dialogue and descriptive prose shine too: "The stars were fading. A light wind ruffled the sequoias." With dragons on the loose and key characters missing, there's plenty of scope for sequels."

"After narrowly averting a demon apocalypse in the previous series, Fablehaven sibs Seth and Kendra face a new threat to the world. The dragons are now hot to break out of their own long confinement, and a hidden talisman is all that can restore the mysteriously weakened magic barriers that have kept them in check...With help from Calvin, a gigantic (i.e., thumb-sized) nipsie, and other motley allies, the young heroes survive hazards ranging from slavering dire bears to the clinically depressed Somber Knight to find the talisman and sneak it past a draconic blockade...only to learn that dragonkind is in general revolt and other sanctuaries have already fallen. Fans of the series will welcome a new story arc stocked with familiar characters, settings, and adventures." -- (11/28/2016)
"The dragons who were confined to sanctuaries in the celebrated Fablehaven series are now restless, and the safe havens feel more like prisons. Celebrant, the King of the Dragons, has pledged to free them and bring back the Age of Dragons. The last remaining members of Dragonwatch call upon 13-year-old Seth and 15-year-old Kendra to guard the sanctuary of Wyrmroost, as it is believed that human caretakers can help strengthen the sanctuary's defenses. The teens face great opposition from their former allies, the dragons, and also from their subjects in Wyrmroost, who are skeptical that two youngsters can succeed where all others have failed, even though they are known to be dragon slayers. Calm, logical Kendra and reckless, wisecracking Seth must work and stay together to find a way to hold the dragons in check. Seth and Kendra have many exciting and dangerous confrontations with fantastic beasts, but they are resourceful and brave, and there is never a doubt that the heroes will triumph. Sure to please loyal Fablehaven readers."-- (04/01/2017)
"Brandon Mull has returned to the Fablehaven world with all the magic, suspense, humor, and wonder of the first series. His fans are in for a huge treat. A fantastic read that will feel like coming home for fans of Fablehaven."
-- (03/01/2017)
"Dragonwatch" is packed with action and adventure within a richly described fantasy world Fablehaven fans will appreciate. Mull brings back familiar characters and storylines while adding new characters and magic for readers to discover."-- (03/05/2017)
