Dragonwatch: A Fablehaven Adventure (Fablehaven #6) by Brandon Mull

The dragons are tired of being contained in their sanctuaries and want to roam the world again.  Dragons are not kind to humans or animals.  There's a reason they are confined in a safe place.  But there's a revolt growing...

Shadow Mountain Books sent me an ARC of this book for review (thank you).  It will be published March 14th.

This is high adventure with lots of excitement and escapades.  You have dragons, wizards, a dragon slayer and a shadow catcher and even a griffin, and that gives you all the ingredients of a great tale.

Kendra and Seth were looking forward to having some time off and visiting with their grandparents but it's not to be.  The protective wall they have around the Dragonwatch site is failing.  It's believed a mortal will make it strong again.  The two of them are most powerful when holding hands and being connected so they are asked to take over the watch.  Seth is eager.  Kendra is not.  But they do it.

There are rules of magic, spells are about and very dangerous people stand in between them and their goal.  Putting them in place doesn't help so they have to go ask a very, very old dragon what they need.  If they don't do it right, they might not get away.

Seth is impulsive and fearless.  Kendra is a bit older and wiser and tries to negotiate more than Seth does.  Their skills work well for them but I'm not sure they'll live long enough to reach adulthood.  Where they are, life is dangerous.  And Kendra told the head dragon off so the next book will mostly likely be about him trying to kill her.  You won't be bored.
