While I enjoyed reading “Dragonwatch” last year and the delightful return to Fablehaven in this new companion series, I found it to be a little less high stakes than Fablehaven had been. So I was eager to read “Wrath of the Dragon King” to see the next step and journey Brandon Mull has in store for us. And I have to tell you, I was not disappointed in this round with lots of action, battle--and if you thought you were here for the dragons, I have two words for you: Dark. Unicorn. . Today I’m excited to be on the blog tour for this return to “Dragonwatch”. First I should be clear that while “Dragonwatch” is a companion series to “Fablehaven” (both middle grade series) and you don’t have to have read “Fablehaven” to read it (Mull does a good job of inserting short and to-the-point information on things that a reader would only know via “Fablehaven”) there will be spoilers to “Fablehaven”. . Things I love about Mull’s writing is there is a lot of humor, a lot of magic, and really interesting characters. (I am constantly delighted by the humor of his books) I love the way he writes his characters and how you really get to know them. While we are still following Kendra and Seth in this new series, among the many new characters that we meet, Mull introduces Kendra and Seth’s cousins, Knox and Tess. And while they had a smaller part to play in book one, they become significantly more involved in book two. . “Wrath of the Dragon King” starts right where “Dragonwatch” ends and the stakes elevate very quickly. The dragons are rebelling against their caretakers and dragon sanctuaries are beginning to fall to the dragons. But the way this book evolves!! Let’s just say that all the ways I’ve wanted to see Seth and Kendra grow seem to starting in this book. AND THE CLIFFHANGER! I’m very eager to follow this story line. . It’s so hard to talk about a second book in a series without spoiling anything,but I will say this--if you haven’t read these, I very much recommend them. They are at the top of my recommendation list for any middle grader and anyone who enjoys middle grade stories (or, I mean, obviously, DRAGONS) . #dragonwatch #wrathofthedragonking
