Wrath of the Dragon King (Dragonwatch, #2)
War has come to the dragon sanctuaries of the world and nowhere is the danger more intense than at Wyrmroost. After a humiliating defeat at the hands of Kendra and Seth, Celebrant, King of Dragons, prepares to unleash his fury and take control of his native preserve. Armed with information from a new ally Ronodin, the dark unicorn Celebrant seeks a legendary talisman the dominion stone.However, the powerful stone is protected by a cursed castle. Upon entering the castle fortress, an unyielding power strips all magical beings of their power and forces Celebrant to take his human avatar form. Kendra and Seth must enter the cursed castle as well. The race is on. Will the two young caretakers rally enough support from the creatures of Wyrmroost against the greatest threat the magical community has faced in ages? Can they foil Celebrant's plan and beat him to the mighty dominion stone? Or will all hope be shattered by the wrath of the Dragon King?

    You know what? I predicted that I would be angry at myself for requesting the preview when I knew it was only the first few chapters, but I did it anyway! and I was right. There is no physical way I can wait for the month of October, because after the first two chapters this book hit its groove and I was SO ENTHRALLED. Though this small preview didn’t really evoke the same feelings as when I’m reading the original Fablehaven (and maybe it’s not supposed to), it’s still so so valid. I still wish You know what? I predicted that I would be angry at myself for requesting the preview when I knew it was only the first few chapters, but I did it anyway! and I was right. There is no physical way I can wait for the month of October, because after the first two chapters this book hit its groove and I was SO ENTHRALLED. Though this small preview didn’t really evoke the same feelings as when I’m reading the original Fablehaven (and maybe it’s not supposed to), it’s still so so valid. I still wish Kendra and Seth were older in this one. We got to FINALLY meet some of my faves from the original Fablehaven series, I won’t say who because of spoilers, but I’m still waiting to see my ultimate fave,,,,, p l e a s e let him be in the other parts of this book. Brandon Mull I’ll give you anything. And I mean, honestly, if this series had come out three or four years ago I would have wanted a well-written, intricately plotted series but at this point my standards are so low that all I want is canon LGBT characters and fan service. I feel like I’ll get the latter and I can only cross my fingers on the former. But, it does look like this series will have a good storyline, and that makes my book lover heart happy. Kendra and Seth’s character strengths and differences really stood out in this preview, and so did Knox and Tess’s. There’s a part right in the first two pages of the preview where Marat’s like “Seth you gotta find someone to train you as a shadow charmer,” and Seth’s like “but WHO,” (and wow these are not direct quotes I hope you know that) and all I could do was look into the camera like PLEASE for the love of God bring the Sphinx back. He’s everyone’s fave morally-grey anti-villain and he deserves a redemption arc. I could go so far into why the Sphinx is a good person at heart but I feel like that would derail my review. Also RAXTUS my poor son. He has done nothing wrong. Does he know that I love him?? Raxtus deserves better and I’m a lil mad at Kendra and Seth for treating him so wrongly ngl. The only thing I didn’t like in this preview was the fact that a description for a bowl of soup is “gooey, creamy, punishment.” what the f**k. Someone’s either never had soup before or has only ever had really, really good soup aksdjsdfk. I hope to God that’s changed in the final edition like,,,,, please. It’s also extremely BOLD of this book to assume that I care at all about Bracken. I don’t ship Brackendra and honestly, I couldn’t give a single heck about whether Bracken is okay or not. Maybe it’s just me, but all I want is for Kendra and Seth to both be gay date actual humans that are their actual ages??? I feel like it’s not too much to ask?? Please no more setting them up with immortals??? P L E A S E??!?!?!?!?But in the end, this was an explosive preview that makes me even more excited for the book to come out in October. Though this series may be an entirely different adventure than the one in Fablehaven, it still brings together the blend of politics, philosophy, character arcs and world-building that I’ve come to expect from Brandon Mull’s books. Even though all I want is for Kendra and Seth to be happy (and go to school, like, is Kendra ever going to graduate high school??), I can wait for a little longer for this fun and surprisingly intense series. 3/21/18If I don't open up to page one and see the words "warren burgess is now hanging out at wyrmroost",,,,,,

While I like this series, it's not quite intense enough for some of my hard-core fantasy fans when they get into 8th grade, but Dragonwatch definitely steps things up a bit. Seth and Kendra, newly minted caretakers of the Dragon Sanctuary, are in an impossible position with Celebrant, and when he invites them to his castle, they know things won't end well. Celebrant breaks the pact and all of the characters are sent on different journeys home or to find out information, ending at Stormguard Castle, where Seth and Kendra are pitted against the dragons in an almost impossible game put on by Humbuggle. Can they use their smarts (as well as their fairy powers) to figure out how to win, freeing the inhabitants of the castle as well as defeating the dragons? I read this during the first week of school, so don't feel like I can write a complete review, but I did really enjoy it. It did have a decided Dungeons and Dragons feel to it, with the journey and the contest at Stormguard, and that might appeal to many readers today. A bit darker, and definitely NOT the last book in the series. Can't wait to hand this to my students!

The event began with Celebrant killing one of his guards who had challenged him for the crown. Then, as food was served, the king declared war on anyone opposing him! Our griffins were killed in the royal stables, and we now have two days to trek home. Unfortunately, I only read about a fourth of the book in a preview copy. The format and characters are the same as previous books about the magical creatures of Wyrmroost and Fablehaven. Seth always seems to be the wildcard, as his impulsiveness often leads to problems. In this book, he wants to steal dragon bones after Celebrant's duel which would negate any protective spells during the feast. Another wildcard may be Seth's cousin. He just knowingly saw magical creatures for the first time, and it's unknown what he'll do with the knowledge. I assume it will have an important effect, since the author chose to include it. I'll withhold any further comments until I finish the book this fall when it comes out.
