Rise of the Evening Star (Fablehaven) by Brandon Mull
This was the second book in the Fablehaven series. Just like the first book, this was an excellent read and if anything, I liked it more than the first. There was more action right from the start and there were more characters that added a lot to the story. This book was also appropriate for all ages. In this book Kendra sees a goblin impersonating a student at her school. This intrusion of the magical world into Kendra's normal life causes quite a stir and she finds herself back at Fablehaven with her brother Seth. A secret society is working towards the destruction of Fablehaven and other magical preserves. In order to stop them, Kendra will have to help find a powerful artifact hidden on the Fablehaven grounds. The only problem is that they have no idea where to find it or whom they can trust.
