Summary: At the end of the school year, Kendra and her brother, Seth, find themselves racing back to Fablehaven. Grandpa Sorenson, the caretaker, invites three specialists — a potion master, a magical relics collector, and a mystical creature trapper — to help protect the property from the Society of the Evening Star, an ancient organization determined to infiltrate the preserve and steal a hidden artifact of great power. 
Time is running out. The Evening Star is storming the gates. If the artifact falls into the wrong hands, it could mean the downfall of other preserves and possibly the world. Will Kendra learn to use her fairy gifts in time? Will Seth stay out of trouble? Can they overcome paralyzing fear?
Review: The second installment of the Fablehaven series is even more satisfying than the first. Brandon Mull, talented author, has marvelously concocted another spin to the plot. I really enjoyed the new characters that have been introduced. Only a great literary master could create such vivid personalities. Like a delicious chocolate, Fablehaven: Rise of the Evening Star, is truly something worth indulging upon. I am looking forward to reviewing the next book with much anticipation.
