Keys to the Demon Prison

Keys to the Demon Prison - Brandon Mull At the risk of sounding redundant, I'd just like to say that Brandon Mull is my hero.

This book was very intense, and I loved every minute of it. I cried a few times, and I'm not at all ashamed of that. I still can't get over how thought-through everything was. Fablehaven inspires my dreams of being a great writer, yet crushes them at the same time... If I can write a book like this, I can die in complete bliss. Or something like that.

Know what? I think I'll write a review later. This book deserves to be praised while I'm actually coherent.


I realize the Fablehaven series has its flaws. For example, I would have appreciated a stronger ending, and the dialogue is not always realistic for the age of the person speaking. However, I'm still giving the final installment five stars. Why? It's good enough that I can all but ignore those flaws and truly enjoy the story. This series makes me feel something that other books can't; flaws in the writing don't matter so much when that happens.

I still don't feel like I can do the book justice with this review. Maybe I won't ever be able to, but I think I'll come back to it again. I'm just horribly sad that the series is over. Hurry up and come out, Beyonders!
