Grip of the Shadow Plague (Fablehaven 3)

Grip of the Shadow Plague - Brandon Mull

My incoming 7th grader is slowly working his way through this series, and gives them to me as he finishes. I enjoy them, and I have to say, this is the best one yet.

These books are clever, with good vocabulary, good characters, and some simple plot stuff going on that one wouldn't expect. Sure the reading level is middle grade, but these books would also be great for younger kids who are strong readers (unless they are sensitive to scary situations).

I look forward to #4, but unfortunately my son is all tied up with his required summer reads for school. I have to wait!
