In this first volume of a sequel series to Fablehaven, Brandon Mull takes us deeper into the hidden sanctuaries of the magical creatures, specifically returning us to Wyrmroost, the dragon sanctuary, where Celebrant is waging war on the captivity of the dragons. He wants to break free and lead the dragons in reclaiming the world!
The wizards, enchantresses, and dragon slayers that once made up the order of Dragonwatch has all but disappeared over the years, so a new plan must be made. Kendra and Seth are going to have to work harder and more cooperatively than they ever have before to help protect the boundaries of the sanctuary from the assault within its borders.
Don't worry if you haven't read the Fablehaven series (although I think you would enjoy it, too!), Dragonwatch (Lexile: 620; Interest Level: Grades 4-8) contains enough background information to fill you in on characters and backstory. Fans of Brandon Mull's other series, dragons, and adventure will certainly enjoy this tale. (376 p.)
One of the reasons I became an elementary school librarian is so I can read children's books.
