Watch the Video Trailer for Dragonwatch, Brandon Mull's latest Fablehaven Novel

Today I'm thrilled to be taking part in the blog tour for Brandon Mull's brand new book, Dragonwatch.


At the Christensen home, we're huge fans of Brandon Mull and his Fablehaven series. I'm currently reading the Fablehaven series to my eight-year-old son and this will mark the third time I've read it. I read the entire series once myself, then part of it to my daughters, and now to the next kid in line. He absolutely loves the books and is so excited to be able to take AR tests at school on the "big books" we're reading.
Dragons were a very exciting part of Fablehaven so when we discovered that Mull was writing a sequel to the Fablehaven series featuring Dragons, there was all kinds of excitement!
Mull's writing style is excellent because his characters are well-developed and the descriptions of the many different creatures, including dragons, in the book create a picture in the mind like a movie. Mull also uses tons of vocabulary or BIG words that challenge the readers to expand their word lists. I've enjoyed reading to my kids because they'll often ask what a word means and then we can explain it. Other times, I know that they've learned a new word just from the context of the sentence.
The storyline is often intense and the kids never want me to stop reading.
If you're looking for a great book and an excellent series to dive into with your family or just for your own reading pleasure, you won't want to miss Dragonwatch and the entire Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull.


Here's more about the book:
In the long-awaited sequel to Fablehaven, the dragons who have been kept at the dragon sanctuaries no longer consider them safe havens, but prisons and they want their freedom. The dragons are no longer our allies....
In the hidden dragon sanctuary of Wyrmroost, Celebrant the Just, King of the Dragons, plots his revenge. He has long seen the sanctuaries as prisons, and he wants nothing more than to overthrow his captors and return the world to the Age of Dragons, when he and his kind ruled and reigned without borders. The time has come to break free and reclaim his power.
No one person is capable of stopping Celebrant and his dragon horde. It will take the ancient order of Dragonwatch to gather again if there is any chance of saving the world from destruction. In ancient times, Dragonwatch was a group of wizards, enchantresses, dragon slayers, and others who originally confined the majority of dragons into sanctuaries. But nearly all of the original Dragonwatch members are gone, and so the wizard Agad reaches out to Grandpa Sorenson for help.
As Kendra and Seth confront this new danger, they must draw upon all their skills, talents, and knowledge as only they have the ability to function together as a powerful dragon tamer. Together they must battle against forces with superior supernatural powers and breathtaking magical abilities.
How will the epic dragon showdown end? Will dragons overthrow humans and change the world as we know it?

There's an amazing new video trailer too. Watch it here:
