Fablehaven by Brandon Mull

First of all, hooray for a four-day weekend!

Now, more importantly, I have just finished Fablehaven by Brandon Mull and it was amazing! It was full of details, was very original, and was very fun to read. Fablehaven is about two siblings, Kendra and Seth, who are sent to live with their Grandma and Grandpa Sorenson while their parents are on a 17-day cruise. However, Grandma Sorenson is away, visiting a dying family member. They have plenty of things to do there, like painting, swimming, and for Kendra, trying to solve a puzzle that their Grandpa has given her. (No, I don't mean a jigsaw puzzle, although they have those to do, too.) However, Seth's weakness is the rules that Grandpa sets down, with the punishment of staying in their room for the rest of their stay. When Seth breaks the most important rule, and goes in to the forest, he sees someone that he wasn't supposed to. Luckily, when Kendra solves the puzzle, and opens their eyes to the world of Fablehaven, the rules lessen a little, although that does not stop Seth from breaking the remaining rules. Seth goes a little to far one night, and accidentally causes Grandpa to get captured by some of the more evil creatures of Fablehaven, and Kendra and Seth have to find out where Grandma really is, and save Grandpa. It really was a great book. Now I'm focusing on The Alchemyst by Micheal Scott.
