Join Kendra and Seth Sorenson from the Fablehaven Series are on another action-packed adventure in the land of magical creatures. Dragonwatch by author Brandon Mull is the first in a five-book series that picks up right where his Fablehaven series left off. Kendra and Seth barely have time to catch their breath after the great battle of Zzyzx, before they are off to save the world yet again from impending magical doom. This time the setting is Wyrmroost, a dragon sanctuary that is on the brink of falling thanks to an over eager dragon.
Just like in his other novels, Brandon Mull masterfully creates a magical world full of interesting characters (mostly non-human) and creative settings, that pull you in and sends your imagination soaring. There is action and adventure that keep you on the edge of your seat and turning pages, but there are also relationships and loyalties that make this novel relatable and intriguing. Both Seth and Kendra have grown up a little and matured from the first series. They must learn to work together as well as learn to better use their given talents, all the while making hard decisions with the fate of the world resting on their shoulders. Dragonwatch is certainly a wonderful continuation of the adventures that started at Fablehaven. That being said, this series would probably be better enjoyed if readers have first read Fablehaven.
