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 book of the Fablehaven series is more dynamic and more complex than the first one. More mysteries, more adventures take place, and keep you engaged throughout the story.
While the world-building in the first book was incomplete and unrefined, here the magical world of Fablehaven begins to unfold, as well as Kendra’s special abilities.
Colorful and varied magic is created in Rise of the Evening Star: the mystical creatures, the magical items are written with so much imaginary!
Just like in the previous book, the fate of Fablehaven depends on Kendra and Seth’s courage. The story is filled with surprising twists and turns, astonishing adventures, inventive magic, adventures again, more turns, and more adventures!
I loved every line of it! Highly recommended!
