Don't miss this great fantasy story for preteens in upper grammar school or young teens. My boy and girl grandchildren all loved it & had to read all 5 of the series. One of them is high-functioning autistic & doesn't like reading, but after I read him the first book out loud, he got into the story so much that he read the next 4 books by himself. Nothing is as it seems at first. Great plot, gets better & better as you read. Girl & boy siblings go to spend summer with grandparents they later discover are caretakers for a haven for magical creatures. Continually shows that all actions have consequences, though in a subtle but effective way. Optional thought-provoking questions included after end of book. Book 1 of 5 books: (should be read in order) Fablehaven; Red Star of Evening; Grip of the Shadow Plaague; Secrets of the Dragon Sanctuary; Keys to the Demon Prison.

I really enjoyed this book! It is not just a children's book. It was recommended by a friend, I started reading it and my youngest son was looking for a new book to read, so he borrowed it and he didn't want to give it back. Then my other son read it. Needless to say my boys and I ended up fighting over who got to read first...book2, book 3 of the same series, and book 4 which just came out. It has endearing characters and it is very wholesome so it is safe for younger readers. I highly recommend it.
