Seth discovers the problem in its infancy, but as the infectious disease spreads, it becomes clear that the preserve cannot hold out for long. In dire need of help, the Sorensons question where to turn. The Sphinx has always given sound advice - but is he a traitor?

Inside the Quiet Box, Vanessa might have information that could lead to a cure - but can she be trusted? Meanwhile, Kendra and members of the Knights of the Dawn must journey to a distant preserve and retrieve another hidden artifact. Will the Society of the Evening Star recover it first? Will the plague eclipse all light at Fablehaven? Find out in Fablehaven: Grip of the Shadow Plague.

Critic reviews

"The Fablehaven series is generating buzz as a contender in the fantasy-adventure genre to replace the Harry Potter franchise." ( Hollywood Reporter)
"Like Harry Potter, Fablehaven can be read aloud in a family with as much pleasure for grownups as for children." (Orson Scott Card)
"Featuring plenty of heroism and hilarity, Fablehaven is rich in creatures, magic-working, and hard-fought battles." ( Kirkus Reviews)

Love Fablehaven!!! These books are fantastic fun!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is a must for children or anyone for that matter. The whole series is a must read but this one in particular has a few of my favorite elements. The other magical creature preserve they visit is spectacular. The pacing is perfect, the descriptions really bring you there, this is a magical vacation. Now I'm just waiting for the rest of the series to come up.

What did you like best about this story?

It's fun and light and magical.

Which character – as performed by E. B. Stevens – was your favorite?

E. B. Stevens is not my favorite (sry) but favorite characters abound none the less. Patton is an obvious standout and the voice of the demon was well done.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Forget Hogwarts, leave Narnia behind the real adventure awaits at Fablehaven! (please god say they are making these into movies!)

Any additional comments?

Not to be missed.
