Fablehaven: Grip of the Shadow Plague, Brandon Mull, 487 pages
Brandon Mull's third entry into the Fablehaven series is an interesting addition. It starts with dividing the two child protagonists, Kendra and Seth, to put them both on differing quests within the world. Their stories come back together about halfway through the book, to combat a plague that is destroying the Fablehaven sanctuary. Unfortunately, the story at feels a bit too predictable at times, though the pacing is well executed. While there is time travel within the book, it does not create any plot holes or paradox inducing moments, which is nice and well thought out. Overall, a very enjoyable read.
