Just because you’re not in middle school doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a middle grade book! Ok, I’ll be honest, I really loved this book. I love all of Brandon Mull’s books. I judged the first Fablehaven book by it’s cover many years ago and the rest is history.
I was nervous yet excited to start reading Dragonwatch. It picks up not long after the final Fablehaven book, Keys to the Demon Prison, ended, with the demons having been defeated by Kendra, Seth, and all their friends. Now the dragons, who helped put the demons in their new prison, are staging an uprising so they can be free of the preserves. The problem is that the last time they roamed the earth they tried to take it over.
Seth and Kendra are asked to become the new caretakers of Wrymroost because when together they can speak to dragons when most people become “petrified” in front of them and are unable to speak or move. This book has all of the great adventure and realistic dialogue (the kids going back and forth with each other is really fun) that I’ve come to expect from Brandon Mull. This is a fantastic follow-up to Fablehven and I can’t wait for more books in the series to come out!
I received a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
