Blog Tour - Dragonwatch


About the bookIn the long-awaited sequel to Fablehaven, the dragons who have been kept at the dragon sanctuaries no longer consider them safe havens but prisons, and they want their freedom. The dragons are no longer our allies...

In the hidden dragon sanctuary of Wyrmroost, Celebrant the Just, king of the dragons, plots his revenge. He has long seen the sanctuaries as prisons, and he wants nothing more than to overthrow his captors and return the world to the Age of Dragons, when he and his kind ruled and reigned without borders. The time has come to break free and reclaim his power.

No one person is capable of stopping Celebrant and his dragon horde. It will take the gathering of the ancient order of Dragonwatch if there is any chance of saving the world from destruction. In ancient times, Dragonwatch was a group of wizards, enchantresses, dragon slayers, and others who confined the dragons into sanctuaries. But nearly all of the original Dragonwatch members are gone, and so the wizard Agad reaches out to Grandpa Sorenson for help.

As Kendra and Seth confront this new danger, they must draw upon all their skills, talents, and knowledge, as only they have the ability to function together as a powerful dragon tamer. Together they must battle against forces with supernatural powers and breathtaking magical abilities.

How will the epic dragon showdown end? Will dragons overthrow humans and change the world as we know it?

My review: It's too bad you couldn't hear the squeals of excitement our daughters let out when this book showed up on our doorstep! I'm sure there were many other such squeals at other houses when this book came out last week. I know that our kids (okay, and me too!) have been waiting for this book to come out ever since it was announced that Brandon Mull would be writing a sequel series to his beloved Fablehaven series. I will admit that I can't wait to introduce our little guy to these books in a few years, and bonus - I get to read them again myself!

Anyway...back to Dragonwatch! I loved the way that as this book opened, I was immediately transported back to the world of Fablehaven. Seth, Kendra, their family and friends, and all of the magical creatures are just the same. And, of course, there are new characters to learn to love. 

I loved the way that Kendra and Seth work together in this one. Seth is not really known for thinking before he acts and Kendra thinks probably too much, but working together they really are amazing in this one! 

I enjoyed the parts where Seth tricks his younger cousin, Knox, into doing things that benefit him. Those parts are just so...Seth! I loved the parts where they talk to the dragon Celebrant both together and later in the book where Kendra has to work hard to be able to do it herself. Love the way she's able to grow throughout this book.

The ending is kind of a cliffhanger...of course! And I'm super excited for more books to come. I can't wait to see how things turn out for Kendra and Seth!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
