I knew the Fablehaven series name. But I did was never interested, thinking, wrongly, that it was books from a video game. Do not ask me why I thought that, I have no idea!
So when Nathan editions have sent me the 5th volume of this series, I found myself very bored. How the chronicle of a book when I have not read the previous four? Still have it is Volume 2, but here anyway!
So I went to the first two volumes borrowed from the library. And I do not regret it!
I was positively surprised by this story. Nothing to do with any video game. I was transported from beginning to end with this book
The characters are very endearing. Kendra in fear of doing wrong, to always be perfect and most importantly, the little Seth, fearless and sometimes too reckless!
The plot is very well put together, the smooth writing and restless do not let a moment of respite and kept me in suspense until the last line, when I was disappointed not to read more and the book also ends soon!
I will not start this 2nd installment of this series, and provide me asap Volumes 3 and 4 of this amazing saga that promises great times!
