Dragonwatch by Brandon Mull
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
You know how it feels when you find a book series that you love, that you want to rush through and read as quickly as possible, but you don't want it to end? That's how I felt reading Brandon Mull's Fablehaven series. It was filled with wonderful magic, suspense, humor, and yes, even dragons.
It was bittersweet to finish the series and say goodbye to the characters that I loved. The world and the people that Brandon Mull had created were vivid and real, so I missed them as soon as the books were done.
Luckily, it was only a “until we meet again” kind of goodbye, because the first book of the new Dragonwatch series is now here, seven years after the last Fablehaven book came out.
Dragonwatch picks up only four months after the end of the Fablehaven series, with siblings Kendra and Seth, ages 15 and 13, now needing to calm dragon unrest that's happening at all the dragon sanctuaries built to protect dragons. As the king of dragons, Celebrant the Just is restless for more control of Wyrmroost, one of these dragon sanctuary, and wants to ultimately release all of the dragons from their confinement.
Kendra and Seth must work together as a Dragon Tamer so they can complete their mission to strengthen the defenses of the castle, securing the safety of the inhabitants within, and the world beyond.
Brandon Mull does not disappoint with Dragonwatch. He stays true to the Fablehaven world that he created, while introducing new characters into the story. Kendra remains thoughtful and kind, Seth continues to be impulsive and funny.
If you liked Fablehaven, you’ll love to meet up with your favorite characters and magical creatures in this new series.
