Rise of the Evening Star is the second book in the Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull. In this book, danger has come to Fablehaven again as the Society of the Evening Star has discovered the existence of Fablehaven and that it hides one of the hidden artifacts of power. Kendra and Seth return to Fablehaven to help their grandparents and three experts, a potions master, a collector of magical relics and a trapper of mythical creatures, protect the refuge from the bad guys.
I enjoyed this book much more than the first book. They're not the "best books ever" but they are good stories and very enjoyable. I feel like all the characters became more fleshed out and real in the second book and I hope they continue to grow as the series goes on. The enemy to Fablehaven and other magical refuges became more defined in this book; so, we got a better of idea of who the main enemy is. I look forward to seeing how the books continue and the overall mythology of the world grows.
