Review for Fablehaven: Keys to the Demon Prison
by Brandon Mull
Hardcover: 544 pages
Publisher: Shadow Mountain (March 23, 2010)
Since ancient times, the great demon prison Zzyzx has protected the world from the most dangerous servants of darkness, including Gorgrog, the Demon King. After centuries of plotting, the Sphinx is on the verge of recovering the five artifacts necessary to open the legendary prison. Facing the potential of a world-ending calamity, all friends of light must unite in a final effort to thwart the Sphinx s designs and find a safe home for the five artifacts. To this end, Kendra, Seth, and the Knights of the Dawn will venture far beyond the walls of Fablehaven to strange and exotic magical preserves across the globe, where the end of every quest becomes the beginning of another. In this explosive series finale, allegiances will be confirmed and secrets revealed as the forces of light and darkness collide in a desperate struggle to control the keys to the demon prison.
Fablehaven: Keys to the Demon Prison was a fantastic adventure. It lived up to the name of Fablehaven and was my favorite of the series by far. Just when you thought there were no more magical creatures to introduce, they appear in greater numbers than ever before. The chapters build up upon each other just as the books in the series do. This book leaves you no place to stop and take a break. The chapters blur together so much that sometimes you don’t know that you’re on a different chapter until you realize that you’ve been reading for a few hours non stop. The plot twists in this book were fantastic. The end battle scene, the final battle between good and evil, was ridiculously intense. I had been looking forward to this book for over a year, and it filled all my expectations.
