Review of Fablehaven: Keys to the Demon Prison

Okay everyone, it's time for a new blog post, and this post is another review. However, this isn't a review for just any old book. This review is for the final book in one of the best series ever, Fablehaven!
For those of you not familiar with the series, Fablehaven is about these two siblings, Kendra and Seth, who have to stay with their grandparents for the summer. However, while they're there, they learn that their grandparents are the caretakers of a preserve for magical creatures. The preserve has many creatures that we're familiar with, like fairies, satyrs, trolls, goblins, and witches. However, the author did come up with some original creatures like the drumants, blixes, and nipsies. Kendra and Seth adapt very well to this new world, but like with many changes we face, danger looms around the corner.
As the series progresses, Kendra and Seth learn about this evil organization called The Society of the Evening Star who doesn't like the way the world works. They think the magical creatures are wrongfully imprisoned at the magical preserves (which is true for really dark creatures like demons) and want to overthrow them. Kendra and Seth must travel across the world to find five artifacts which are the keys to the world's survival or destruction from the hands of an army of demons.
In this exciting conclusion, Kendra and Seth continue to travel around the world, searching for the artifacts to stop the Society. The two of them will travel to new places like Australia and Europe while on this quest and they will encounter exotic and dangerous new creatures. Allegiances are confirmed in this book and the stakes have never been higher. The siblings must trust in their friends and themselves as everything leads to the ultimate battle between light and darkness.
I give this book five stars out of five. The author shows great humor and writes his characters in an incredibly believable way. It's almost as if you're there experiencing the twists and turns the characters must face. If the ending in this story doesn't satisfy you, nothing will. I highly recommend that everyone should pick up the Fablehaven series. I look forward to reading more of the author's works in the future.
