    The Field Guide by Holly Black (fyrefly98, cmbohn)
    fyrefly98: Very similar stories (kids in a creepy old house learn to see magical creatures all around them), although I think Fablehaven skews just a little older than the Spiderwick Chronicles.

The kids go through an adventure where they run into trolls, imps, witches, satyrs and fairies. The children will never see the world in the same way. " When Kendra and Seth go to stay at their grandparent's estate they discover that it is a sanctuary for magical creatures and that a battle between good and evil is looming."

I think this is the third time I have read this book and it is just as fun and diverting as ever. However, Kendra and Seth got on my nerves a lot more than they ever have before. Granted, this may be because I am a bit out of touch with children these days. Being a college student can do that to a person. However, I think Brandon Mull may have been trying too hard to make the children seem like children. Seth is the ultimate trouble-maker and Kendra is the ultimate goodie-goodie; there isn't anything about either of the characters that makes them remarkable. They're just boring, predictable kids. If I remember correctly, things get a little better later on, but the Kendra and Seth's predictable actions are a bit annoying to deal with sometimes, especially in the first book. However, I am glad that I finally was able to sit down and read the series through again. It's nice to have something to look forward to reading every now and then. Fablehaven would also make a really good movie. I'm keeping my eyes and ears open for rumors of one . . . ( )

"Fablehaven" is a quick-paced read, and taken as a fantasy book, it does its job in exploring new worlds.

Witty repartee between the central characters, as well as the occasional well-done set piece, isn't enough to hold this hefty debut together.

Book description
From the back cover: "For centuries mystical creatures were gathered into a hidden refuge called Fablehaven to prevent their extinction. The sanctuary is one of the last strongholds of true magic. Enchanting? Absolutely! Exciting? You bet. Safe? Well, actually, quite the opposite...
Kendra and her brother, Seth, have no idea that their grandfather is the current caretaker of Fablehaven. Inside the gated woods, ancient laws keep order among greedy trolls, mischievous satyrs, plotting witches, spiteful imps, and jealous fairies. However, when the rules get broken, powerful forces of evil are unleashed, and Kendra and her brother must face the greatest challenge of their lives to save their family, Fablehaven, and perhaps even the world."
