This was such a fun roller coaster adventure to read. Just like the first book in the series there are so many cool creatures to learn about and some great lessons to learn.
The second book is a bigger adventure. I really love how Mull seems to use the entire series to build a crescendo. If you thought you loved, liked, or vaguely enjoyed the first book, I would urge you to continue the series.
Rise of the Evening Star introduces the primary adversary for the series. It gives you someone to root for, someone to be opposed to, and begins the ultimate journey that Seth and Kendra will have to venture. Each book shows Mull's growth as a writer and the emotional growth of the two teenagers fighting to save the world. Rise of the Evening Star was well worth the read. If you love adventure, stories of redemption and growth, or any kind of Fantasy novel, this is a pleasurable read.
The second book of Fablehaven is really quite good and its a wonderful followup to the first one.
Two of my favorite lessons from the book:
1) Kids can learn that confidence fixes a lot of problems. This manifests itself in many places in the book. And its true in real life, too.
2) The machinations of evil follow a pattern that holds a lesson. I don't want to give anything away, but its regarding other people's motivations and not to be too naive and trusting. This surfaces at least 3 times in the book and then its spelled out for you. Its a wonderful lesson for teens to use in real life, especially at the age my daughter is.
So, I'm very happy with this book on those levels. There are many other lessons, but you'll have to read the book to find them.
Otherwise, i can only tell you that its an interesting read, entertaining, holds together well. Nothing too scary, but scary enough to be cool and fun. On rare occasions people seem to speak in a bit of a stilted way when they are explaining things, and lack some character depth, but lets not be too picky.
The author does a wonderful job of tying in concepts and mysteries introduced in the first book, as well as laying the groundwork for new concepts and mysteries. For example, you find out how Grandma became transformed in book 1, yet he leaves it at that, leaving the concept to be more thoroughly plumbed in a future book. In short, the series has been thought out ahead of time, which is always a good sign.
These mildly complicated story patterns will be enjoyed by "young at heart" adults as well as children.
All in all, at $6.99 delivered (I'm with amazon prime) its a no-brainer "buy".
