Dragonwatch: A Fablehaven Adventure
In the hidden dragon sanctuary of Wyrmroost, Celebrant the Just, King of the Dragons, plots his revenge. He has long seen the sanctuaries as prisons, and he wants nothing more than to overthrow his captors and return the world to the Age of Dragons, when he and his kind ruled and reigned without borders. The time has come to break free and reclaim his power.
No one person is capable of stopping Celebrant and his dragon horde. It will take the ancient order of Dragonwatch to gather again if there is any chance of saving the world from destruction. In ancient times, Dragonwatch was a group of wizards, enchantresses, dragon slayers, and others who originally confined the majority of dragons into sanctuaries. But nearly all of the original Dragonwatch members are gone, and so the wizard Agad reaches out to Grandpa Sorenson for help.
As Kendra and Seth confront this new danger, they must draw upon all their skills, talents, and knowledge as only they have the ability to function together as a powerful dragon tamer. Together they must battle against forces with superior supernatural powers and breathtaking magical abilities.
How will the epic dragon showdown end? Will dragons overthrow humans and change the world as we know it?
In DRAGONWATCH, Seth and Kendra are appointed as the new Dragonwatch members and become the caregivers and protectors of the sanctuaries. The two siblings face many challenges with their new position and are wanted by the Dragon King named Celebrant. But with each other, they can face any obstacle that comes their way.
At first, I didn't like Seth because of his selfish ways, but as the story progressed, I got to see him grow into a hero and a responsible caretaker. He even risks his life for the greater good. Watching him morph into a better person made his character so much more intriguing. Seth also receives help from a nipsie named Calvin, who I absolutely loved. He was one of my favorite characters.
Where Seth is the wild one, Kendra is the responsible one who seems to have her head on straight. The only downfall she has is that she isn't as confident in herself as Seth is. When push comes to shove and Kendra is faced with an ultimatum, she steps up to the plate and discovers what strength was within her all along.
Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of dragons, action, adventure, and middle grade fiction. It was a read that had my heart racing from the action and possible outcomes each turn of the page could bring.
