Community Reviews

I love this book!!!!

I have really enjoyed this book and it's series. The book starts out slightly boring but then got extremely interesting and hooked me on for the rest of the series.

I like it. How about you?

It was an interesting book I will admit, but I still like it. :)

Likable, but Kind of Dumb

These books are interesting and engaging, but I'm always bothered by how dumb the good guys are. Given that they are guarding the world from annihilation, I which they were a bit smarter. There are these relics locked up in hidden magical vaults, stronger than anything that could be built today, which the bad guys are trying to get at. So what do the good guys do? They try to remove the relics from the magical vaults. I guess they plan to hide them under their beds or something. So given that all the quests that the good guys are on are obviously dumb, I find it hard to root for them. And nearly everything Seth does is ill-advised too. But aside from that, it's good fun.


I loved reading this book! There's a lot of magic and adventure in it.

Not a fan

This book is readable, but it's not all that engaging. I didn't read the subsequent books.

One of my all time favorites

This book is one of my all time favorite books. Yes it is the beginning of a series so there is a lot of back story to give. But after that, it is so exciting and keeps you on the edge of your seat. I love this book.
I would highly recommend this book (actually the whole series to anyone who enjoyed Harry Potter.


I want magical milk


I've always wanted to read this book, because i've heard its a really good book.

Do I smell soup?

This was an awesome book! It was a little boring at first,but it got more exciting towards the middle.If you like magic, monsters, and fairies, you'll love this book!

if the author haden't come to my school, i might never have read the series

i can't believe how gullible the characters were at some parts (the milk being bad)


The beginning wasn't that great, but if you kept on reading, you will grow to like it. So read it.


I read Fablehaven because Brandon Mull came to our school, but I thought it was kind of slow. I didn't really like it that much. It was a little interesting in the middle, but I didn't think it was that good.

I wish I had a fairy army...

It was a bit slow in the beginning, but it really picked up into something fun around the middle, and then end was really entertaining. Definitely will be reading the next one once I get a chance!
