The Grip of the Shadow Plague by Brandon Mull

Kendra and Seth along with Grandpa and Grandma Sorenson discover that someone or something has released a plague that is turning the light creatures of Fablehaven into creatures of darkness. And for the first time, Kendra and Warren must visit another magical preserve called Lost Mesa in Arizona and try to recovery another hidden artifact. Can the plague be stopped? Can the artifact be found? And most importantly, is the Sphinx a traitor?

My children adore the Fablehaven series. I’m not sure how many times they have listened to these books. We seem to always have one title or another checked out and I’m constantly trying to track down missing CDs that are due back at the library. From all that listening they’ve done I’ve heard bits and pieces of the series but never listen to the entire thing. Glad I’m finally making the effort because this is a fabulous series.

I really am impressed with this series by Brandon Mull. The writing seems better with each book and the story has sucked me in. Looking forward to reading the last 2 books in the series. The Grip of the Shadow Plague is a great fantasy book filled with lots of mythical creatures, lots of adventure & mystery and characters I just can’t help liking.

Content: This is a clean read. My 8, 10 & 12 year olds all love this series.
