Dragonwatch by Brandon Mull Blog Tour!

I'm so excited to be a part of the blog tour for DRAGONWATCH by Brandon Mull. 

 How could I not be - it's another story in the Fablehaven series!!!!
 LOVE the Fablehaven series.  I got so many students hooked on it, so the fact that there is another book for them to read is absolutely perfect! 

About the Book
In the long-awaited sequel to Fablehaven, the dragons who have been kept at the dragon sanctuaries no longer consider them safe havens, but prisons and they want their freedom. The dragons are no longer our allies....

In the hidden dragon sanctuary of Wyrmroost, Celebrant the Just, King of the Dragons, plots his revenge. He has long seen the sanctuaries as prisons, and he wants nothing more than to overthrow his captors and return the world to the Age of Dragons, when he and his kind ruled and reigned without borders. The time has come to break free and reclaim his power.

No one person is capable of stopping Celebrant and his dragon horde. It will take the ancient order of Dragonwatch to gather again if there is any chance of saving the world from destruction. In ancient times, Dragonwatch was a group of wizards, enchantresses, dragon slayers, and others who originally confined the majority of dragons into sanctuaries. But nearly all of the original Dragonwatch members are gone, and so the wizard Agad reaches out to Grandpa Sorenson for help.

As Kendra and Seth confront this new danger, they must draw upon all their skills, talents, and knowledge as only they have the ability to function together as a powerful dragon tamer. Together they must battle against forces with superior supernatural powers and breathtaking magical abilities.

Going back to the world of Fablehaven was like going home.  Seth! Kendra! The Sanctuary! It was like going back to visit and old friend.  But  - a visit that takes a turn for the worse! Of course it does - it wouldn't be Fablehaven if it didn't.  

Here's what I loved:
  • So much of what you remember about the characters is still there.  Seth is still Seth.
  • All those dragons!
  • The action.  This is a book that will pull the reader in and keep them there.
  • How it ties to the previous books.  It's seamless.  Sometimes a later book can feel like an add-on.  This one didn't. 
  • The ending - satisfying!
  • It brought back a world I loved.

In short - if you loved the series, read it!  If you haven't read the series.  Read the series!!
