Danger lurks everywhere at Fablehaven, where someone has released a plague that transforms beings of light into creatures of darkness. In dire need of help, the Sorensons question where to turn, now that long trusted allies have been revealed as potential foes. Kendra embarks on a special mission that only she can attempt because of her new abilities as fairykind, while Seth stays behind and discovers an incredible new talent of his own. The siblings are put to the test as the threat grows both abroad and home at the Fablehaven preserve, and Brandon Mull spins his richest and most thrilling fantasy tale yet in this third title of the popular fantasy series.

Our customer reviews

A horrible plague is transforming light creatures into beings of darkness at Fablehaven. Seth discovers the source of the problem, but the Sorenson's can't find a way to stop it. With nowhere to turn, the caretakers of Fablehaven must choose between the Sphinx who might be a traitor, and Vanessa, who they've put in the quiet box because she can't be trusted. In spite of the trouble at Fablehaven, Kendra and other Knights of the Dawn must travel to Lost Mesa (another secret preserve) and try to recover one of the hidden artifacts before The Society of the Evening Star gets their hands on it. The GRIP OF THE SHADOW PLAGUE shares more detail and insight to the goings on in this series, but doesn't reveal all. New and interesting characters are introduced while still moving forward with stories/subplots of characters introduced in previous novels. I can't recommend this series highly enough. The world is amazing, the characters are intriguing, and the secrets keep the reader guessing! Mull reveals just enough to placate the reader's curiosity, but still leaves a dangling carrot or two. I can't wait to learn the SECRETS OF THE DRAGON SANCTUARY! *Gold Star Award Winner!show more
