    if there was ever a person in the world that does not learn for there mistakes it's seth.

    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...

    My first venture to the magical world of Fablehaven was truly an unforgettable one. I just couldn’t stop raving about it to every bookish person I know. Truth be told, I read Harry Potter series because a number of critics and authors compared Fablehaven to it(and yes, I just read Harry Potter this year. Please, don’t kill me.) I wanted to prolong the pleasure in reading the entire Fablehaven series so I didn’t read the 2nd book immediately...

    I liked book one in the Fablehaven series and loved this one. The action is nonstop, the story is great, and the are many magical items (who can say no to that). Kendra is still a great character: smart, careful, good. Seth is less annoying than in book 1. He's a year older. And there are some really interesting new characters: both good and bad and good-bad :). 5 stars. Enjoy!

    Kendra and Seth can't wait for the end of the school year so that they can return to visit their grandparents at Fablehaven. A few days before the school year ends, a scabby kobold appears in her class. The kobold appears normal to everybody except Kendra. With the aid of a kobold exterminator they get rid of him and are then swiftly evacuated to Fablehaven for their own safety. Once there, they find out that the Society of the Evening Star (whic...

    Satyrs, Narcoblix, Brownies, fairies, Weird Puppet intertwine with deceit, betrayals and non stop action makes this second installment even better than the first. I can't wait to move unto book three.Love It

    Usually people have a special book or a series that ‘got them into reading’. I am lucky enough to be able to say that I’ve always been a reader (which sounds like I’m bragging for some reason, but I’m not trying to). There’s not a period in my life that I can remember when I didn’t have a book in my hand! But with that being said, there are definitely a few series from my childhood that stand out and that played a major role in my l...

    I liked the sequel to Fablehaven even better than Fablehaven itself. The author was able to flesh out the characters and each gained a lot of depth.I read Fablehaven last night, and the sequel, Rise of the Evening Star, tonight, so they're quick reads at 3-4 hours each. (Thank you writer's strike and sick, clingy kids who INSIST on me holding them and not minding me reading at the same time!!!) They’re fantasy, not unlike Harry Potter but more ...

    This is youth fantasy fiction. I'm not the target audience for this book, but I am giving this 5 stars for several reasons:1. it was 100% age appropriate2. it was written with kids in mind and it addressed "real kid" problems and thoughts3. the characters were children and the best thing about that was that they actually acted like children. They weren't portrayed as wiser beyond their years4. my kids would have loved this.5. it had great message...

    5/5 stars Running toward danger is foolhardy. ... But so is closing your eyes to it. Many perils become less dangerous once you understand their potential hazards. If there was something I missed, it was diving back to the wonderful world of Fablehaven. And thankfully, this time, it brought more surprises than the first one. This, friends, is one of the greatest middle grade series I've ever read, partly because it contains every single mytholog...

    Kendra and Seth return to Fablehaven to discover more of what they don't know (and that can kill them) and save the day. Seth, now a year older, is a little wiser and doesn't find himself in as much trouble, but again, it is Kendra who comes through.By the way, in both books, while Kendra is the reluctant heroine, she is helped by others, so this isn't some supergirl of unlimited capabilities or powers.I get the feeling, in reading these first tw...
  • Connor
    This book was really awesome. I thoroughly enjoyed it with all of its fairy and mythological creatures. Seth and Kendra are two siblings who discovered that their grandparents were the caretakers of a magical menagerie in the first installment, Fablehaven. In this one, the evil Evening Star is trying to make their move against Fablehaven, and the siblings have to use all their wits and courage to defend the menagerie and the world. Kendra was awe...
  • Almak
    The events in Rise of the Evening Star pick up months after where Fablehaven left off. It continues the adventures of Kendra and Seth Sorensen as they become embroiled in an insidious plot by the forces of evil to obtain powerful, magical items and unleash a nearly unstoppable horror.Mull deftly continues to add to the wonders of the world that is Fablehaven, giving the reader new exciting storyline and plots while nimbly threading in those from ...
  • Lindsey
    All right. This book was a mess. By about page 300 I was just zipping through it, so as to have the vital information for the next installment, because A and C promised it gets better. Sigh. As usual, Mull delivers on imaginative world building, and the pace never slows, but his logical foundation is so weak I don't dare examine it--one too-direct breath could knock the whole thing over.(view spoiler)[Kendra's fairykind thing really got on my ner...
  • Rachel
    GREAT writing. If you liked Harry Potter, you'll LOVE this one. The writing is tighter, the characters not as....angst-filled, a little more real, I think.The world is so beautiful and yet real-feeling. There is a great sense of morality without the SLAP of it in your face. NO force feeding here, just a delightful romp, jog and then a mad-dash to the climax in a world of majesty and power that is both magical and compelling.LOVED it. EVERY person...

    Originally read in 2008. Just re-read and loved it just as much the second time! Such a fun series! One of my favorites.

    always good for a fast but intresting read
  • Muhammad Ozair
    4.5 stars.Five is reserved for books that really leave a emotional mark.This book was much more thrilling than the previous one,the fairies aren't all wimpy and stuff.What with Blixes ,the Sphinx and people like Coulter,it was a thrill reading this book.Besides unlike Bahumat (refer to first book)- who was supposed to be so powerful he could overthrow Fablehaven but still got whacked by a couple of Fairies- the Revenant was more of a horror.The p...

    I think this book was better then the first. I am still not drawn to the main characters. I wish Kendra would take some more initiative and try to find out what her talents and powers are from being made fairy kind. There is so much build up to that and it is left hanging again in this book like it was in the first. I wish Seth would set a better example in the book, he is constantly disobeying, I was not thrilled with the things the children did...
  • Mairéad (is roaming the Undying Lands)
    “Sometimes the most preposterous lies are the most believable.” 4 stars.Certainly an improvement from the first book, but Seth is still an idiot. Kendra has become the most capable out of the both of them, but I can see Seth learning somewhat. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.Sorry this is such a short review. :P

    خوندنش خوش گذشت و حتی نسبتاً سریع بود. یعنی کشش خوبی داشت! دوسش داشتم هم! اما بنظرم به ارتباط آدم ها کم پرداخته بود.. نمی دونم، ولی انتظار بیشتری داشتم! بیشتر پر از اتفاقات هیجان انگیز و حادثه بود، تا کند و کاو در ذهن شخصیت ها و درگیر شدن!
  • Hannah Walsh
    This series is really unique and fun to read. I love the humor and all the interesting characters. I thought this one was better than the first, and I'm looking forward to reading more!

    I really enjoyed this story. I would have called it a "4.5 star - great!" story if not for two major annoyances: My Number One Annoyance was Seth. Annoyance Number Two was the ending. But more on these later. First, let's talk about the story and what I "really enjoyed."In this second outing with Kendra and Seth, they go back to Fablehaven at the end of the school year, as stated on the book jacket. But first, Kendra (view spoiler)[had to rid her...

    Originally published on To Read or Not To Read?PG: Mild fantasy action/violence; monsters, demons, ghosties, and other frightening mythical creatures.Recommend to fans of The Spiderwick Chronicles, The Ever Afters, Artemis Fowl, and their ilk. Good middle grade read, but still enough plot and character development for older readers -like me!In the second book, the magic doesn't remain in Fablehaven; instead, I love seeing the effects of the magic...
