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 — a potion master, a magical relics collector, and a mystical creature trapper — 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. If the artifact falls into the wrong hands, it could mean the downfall of other preserves and possibly the world.
Rise of the Evening Star, the second installment of the Fablehaven series is more dynamic and more complex than the first one. More mysteries, more adventures take place, and keep you absorbed throughout the story.
The world-building in the first book, Fablehaven, was incomplete and unrefined, now the magical world of Fablehaven begins to unfold, as well as more and more special abilities of Kendra.
Colorful and varied magic is created in Rise of the Evening Star. It is so diverse both in its creatures, and magical items, and written with so much imaginary!
Again, the fate of Fablehaven depends on Kendra and Seth’s courage. The story is loaded with surprising twists and turns, astonishing adventures, inventive magic, adventures again, more turns, and more adventures! Sadly, I couldn’t give you any example without spoiling the fun for you.
While the first book is just only good, Rise of the Evening Star is a must-read.
I loved every line of it! Can’t wait to read more of this series.
