Format: Hardcover
Kendra and Seth's parents have been kidnapped by the duplicitous Sphinx, head of the Society of the Evening Star. And the Sphinx now has control of most of the keys to the demon prison Zzyzx, which he wants to open. But opening the demon prison means the means the end of the world.

In this final installment of the Fablehaven series, siblings Kendra and Seth are separated throughout most of the book. Both face their own epic quests as they try to stop the opening of Zzyzx by any means possible. Along the way, they are reunited with old friends and confidants as well as new mysterious characters. Because of their past experience, neither sibling is quick to trust strangers anymore. But the side of good needs all the help they can get in this seemingly unwinnable war.

Fablehaven has continued to be one of my all-time favorite children's fantasy series. And this final book finally reveals mysteries and questions that fans have been waiting for. I am a little disappointed that the series has ended, but am very pleased with the way Mull has wrapped up the story. Kendra and Seth have been extremely enjoyable characters. And the world of Fablehaven appeals to people of all ages. With more fantastic creatures, far off lands, and dangerous quests, Keys to the Demon Prison leads up to an action-packed final battle with a satisfying ending to an incredible series.

I am sad that this is the ending of the series, but WOW what a way to go! I could not put it down, and I plan to read it again several times! Another great fantasy series for my book shelf!

This book in the series is non-stop action, a few new characters, great character development for some of my favorite characters, and all the loose ends tied up. What more can you ask for in a series finale?

If you like fantasy or fairy tales, I would recommend that you definitely check out this series! There is a brother and sister hero and heroine so I think both guys and gals can find something they relate to in the books. Also, all the favorites of fantasy are included: dragons, fairies, centaurs, unicorns, witches/hags, demons and some interesting twists on vampires.

I agree with the other reviewers that the series is fairly intricate so reading them in order is a must, but it is a great journey. Props to Brandon Mull for providing such an amazing series to lovers of fantasy!

I love the Fablehaven series. I was very excited to read the final book. I liked how many questions were answered and the action was fun. However, I think this book had too much action. I think it could have been divided into two or three books and fleshed out more. The finding of the final artifacts and the final battle with the evil forces sort of ran together and provided no respite for the reader. Of course maybe reading it in one day was part of my problem. At any rate, if you like the fablehaven series this one is a must read.

Format: Hardcover
At the end of book 4, I had my serious doubts at how the author was going to wrap up such a series in only one more book. He proved me wrong, but I worry it was at the expensive of the story a little. Don't get me wrong, it's still wonderful. There's just so much that happens in such a short amount of time. And for some reason all of it happens with such ease. The previous 4 book felt like there was more of a battle to get what they were after. Seth alone has 6 different adventures (and not all of them include Kendra). I did love watching him mature in this book. He learned that not all wrong decisions are done for the wrong reasons. I think he learned what true courage was. I also love the involvement of the Satyrs. They were fantastic, providing just enough comic relief throughout the story! Kendra seems to have fulfilled the big sister role. She doesn't seem to play much of a part in the bigger picture until the very end when she single-handedly swoops in and saves the day (without even really meaning too). I really liked how the author threw in a love interest. It was so appropriate and very tastefully done. Overall, I thought it was a fantastic ending to the series. I just think the author could have easily gotten one more book out of the series by drawing out some of the tasks a little. I will be looking forward to see what Brandon Mull comes up with next!

I loved the Fabelhaven series. Reading in an adult's perspective, from book one I adored Seth, found Kendra a little over-bearing, and had loads of fun with their adventures. I probably liked book 4 the best. I did enjoy this book as well, but I agree with many other reviewers who think it should have been broken up into more books. (The only problem there, is I would have had to wait another year or two to get to the end.) There were some things that bothered me as far as not fleshing out the characters as much as possible, but the story was still wicked-fun.
I would definitely recommend this series to 5th graders and up, especially to boys. (Girls will also like this series, but I think the boys are harder to please - and this would hit the mark.)
All of my brothers (from 11 years old to 30) enjoyed the series, and I think it ranks as one of my favorites.

(FYI: I'm a 24 year old mother of 2 who typically enjoys fantasy, fairy tales, romantic stories and mysteries.)
