''Fans of Mull's popular Fablehaven books will be delighted with this rousing opener to a new sequel series, which builds upon familiar characters and plot points from the original fantasy series...The excitement of the adventure will sweep up existing fans and undoubtedly create new ones.'' --Booklist
''The dragons who were confined to sanctuaries in the celebrated ''Fablehaven'' series are now restless, and the safe havens feel more like prisons. Celebrant, the King of the Dragons, has pledged to free them and bring back the Age of Dragons. His attacks have caused Wyrmroost's defenses to weaken, as have all other hidden sanctuaries that protect the world from danger. The last remaining members of Dragonwatch call upon 13-year-old Seth and 15-year-old Kendra to guard the sanctuary of Wyrmroost, as it is believed that human caretakers can help strengthen the sanctuary's defenses. The teens face great opposition from their former allies, the dragons, and also from their subjects in Wyrmroost, who are skeptical that two youngsters can succeed where all others have failed, even though they are known to be dragon slayers. Calm, logical Kendra and reckless, wisecracking Seth must work and stay together to find a way to hold the dragons in check. Seth and Kendra have many exciting and dangerous confrontations with fantastic beasts, but they are resourceful and brave, and there is never a doubt that the heroes will triumph. Sure to please loyal Fablehaven readers.'' --School Library Journal
''Dragonwatch is the first follow-up volume to Brandon Mull's best-selling Fablehaven series. Siblings Kendra and Seth Sorenson live with their grandparents on a farm in Connecticut, but theirs is no ordinary pastoral life. Ever since they first drank milk from Viola the magic cow, Kendra and Seth have been able to see the fairy world. Their days are filled with enchanted swords, naiads, and unicorns; they see satyrs and ogres where their mortal cousins see only goats and bears. And that's not to mention the restless dragons being guarded at Wyrmroost, and the vengeful demons roundly defeated at Zzyzk, the battle where Kendra killed the demon king...Mull sets up an intriguing contrast between the humdrum real world and the exhilarating fairy world Kendra and Seth experience. That mixture of the familiar and the unknown will intrigue young readers with a fondness for Tolkien's Middle-earth. The dialogue and descriptive prose shine too: ''The stars were fading. A light wind ruffled the sequoias.'' With dragons on the loose and key characters missing, there's plenty of scope for sequels.'' --Foreword Reviews
''Brandon Mull has returned to the Fablehaven world with all the magic, suspense, humor, and wonder of the first series. His fans are in for a huge treat. A fantastic read that will feel like coming home for fans of Fablehaven. --James Dashner, bestselling author of The Maze Runner series
''After narrowly averting a demon apocalypse in the previous series, Fablehaven sibs Seth and Kendra face a new threat to the world. The dragons are now hot to break out of their own long confinement, and a hidden talisman is all that can restore the mysteriously weakened magic barriers that have kept them in check...With help from Calvin, a gigantic (i.e., thumb-sized) nipsie, and other motley allies, the young heroes survive hazards ranging from slavering dire bears to the clinically depressed Somber Knight to find the talisman and sneak it past a draconic blockade...only to learn that dragonkind is in general revolt and other sanctuaries have already fallen. Fans of the series will welcome a new story arc stocked with familiar characters, settings, and adventures.'' --Kirkus

Brandon Mull did NOT disappoint in this new book.
His book is full of a detailed world any of would love to visit but to see it described through a child’s eyes makes it better. I always find it interesting how he describes the scenery a second time through the eyes of those who don’t know they’re surrounded by magic because it adds this whole other layer to the setting. I felt like I was actually walking around the Dragon Sanctuary. I wish there had been a little more about the Fairy Kingdom when Kendra went in but I cut Mull slack because he did describe it as a world undergoing repair.
His dialogue was perfect. I could feel Kendra’s, and everyone else’s, exasperation with Seth. Newel and Doran always make me laugh so bringing them back was a treat. I like how he really captures so many different types of character personalities to the point you feel like these are all real whether you’re talking about a human or magical being.
I’ve read spin-off series or sequels where it was so bad you felt like a disservice had been done to the original or that it came off like the author wrote it as quickly as possible to capitalize on the money without caring about their fans. This new book was thankfully not tainted by either of those issues. New characters were added to freshen up the story line, a plausible plot line has been created and it seemed like Mull took the time and attention needed to create something that would appeal to his fans who wanted more Fablehaven without sacrificing what made it so great in the first place.
I am hopeful after reading this that the future books will hold onto the same charm and wonder he created in the first series.
From an older adult's point of view, I can only think that if Brandon Mull's expertise in creating Seth Halverson comes from his own character, we can all be thankful his own caretakers didn't thump him into a coma before he became old enough to write. Seth is alternately sneaky and charming, unbelievably brave, supremely stupid and incredibly clever. (Just your normal, run of the mill little boy.) Well done!
