Intrigued by the cover, I nevertheless didnt really know what to expect when I first picked up Fablehaven. However, I was left thoroughly satisfied with it. The story revolved around two siblings, early teens and just younger, and their adventures at their grandfathers place. The setup made the first of the book seem a little slow, but soon the story became gripping as a myriad of fantastical characters made their appearances. The book is teeming with fairies, witches, demons, nymphs, satyrs, trolls, imps, and other creatures too strange to be named. Being a fan of folklore and fantasy, I appreciated the unique mix of creatures and especially the exciting plot twists and edge-of-my-seat climax. The book is easy to get lost in, and easier to recommend. I am greatly looking forward to reading the sequels, and Im confident that for any reader who appreciates unique adventures, strange creatures, and deep magic, this book will not leave them unsatisfied either.
