Overview

Cursed by the Key of Forgetting, Seth has lost all memory of his past—his relationships, his experiences, and who he really is. For now he will align with his new mentor, Ronodin, the dark unicorn, who takes him to the Phantom Isle, the secret gateway to the Under Realm. Though Seth is not formally a prisoner, Ronodin wants to use him and his shadow charmer powers for his own dark ends.

Kendra is frantic to find her missing brother, but the quest will take her and her companions, including Warren, Tanu, and Vanessa, far from Wyrmroost to Crescent Lagoon—a recently fallen dragon sanctuary made up of many islands and underwater domains. Its caretaker has regained a foothold on one of the islands. If Kendra and her friends can save that sanctuary, they might uncover the answers they need to rescue Seth.

With each sanctuary the dragons overthrow, Celebrant, the Dragon King, comes closer to the dawn of a new Age of Dragons. With the forces of darkness on the march, can Kendra and her allies gather enough power to win the epic dragon war?

Solidly entertaining and perfect for preteens The third installment of the Dragonwatch series showcases everything Brandon Mull does best. From its silver-tongued antagonists to its clever plot, Master of the Phantom Isle is just what readers will expect from Seth and Kendra's latest adventure. The Dragonwatch series is an imaginative adventure for readers of any age (as long as they're able to handle fantasy violence and a few mild scares).

Brandon Mull has a delightfully wicked way of wrapping up a story by introducing what the next story arc is going to be or where it will happen. Then follows it up with a book that picks up right where the previous one left off. This is great! For anyone who has all the books and binge them one after the other. But incredibly frustrating for those of us who read them before the next book releases!! That being said, this third installment is marvelous! We learn more about what happened to Seth at the end of book two as well as Bracken’s whereabouts. Kendra does a fantastic job of coping with the loss of her brother while trying to maintain her responsibilities. We get to see Warren and Vanessa again. And my favorite, the Fairy Queen, makes an appearance If I say too much more, I’ll give away spoilers for either this book or the previous ones.

This book took a little longer to get through. Usually, I can get through a YA book rather quickly, but this time, I couldn't. I mulled this over in my head and realized why. It's been 13 years since Fablehaven was released. If you were 7 years old when you started this series, you should be 20 years old by now and possibly in college. That means that you should be reading at a different level by now, eight books later. I really appreciated that Mull took that route. With each book, he's taking us through the different levels of reading. From the easy reads for middle grade readers to what should now be college level readers. It's not like Harry Potter where all eight books read at exactly the same level. This series is a progression to helping young readers become better readers. As for the story itself, I spent most of my time wrapping my head around a Seth who has no identity and is being manipulated by those who seek to use him for his dark gifts. He is so confused with who he is, who he should trust and what he should be doing with his life. It was rather sad to watch, but Ronodin (the dark unicorn) really makes you have sympathy for the Devil. Maybe not everything is clear cut when it comes to good and evil, light and dark. Seeing Seth this way really made me sad, especially to watch as his friends and family watch him betray them and mistrust them. They are the ones who care about him and have his best interests at heart. He just doesn't know if they really do, because Ronodin is such a manipulator with words. I also don't know what Ronodin's end game is yet. The way he tricked Seth into servitude made no sense. I can understand why he needs Seth (for his dark powers), but I don't understand why he needs him in the grand scheme of things. I'm sure we may be 2 books away from that revelation (if Mull stays true to keeping this series to 5 books like he has with his other series). I really enjoyed journeying to another sanctuary in this book. This marks sanctuary #3 in the Fablehaven/Dragonwatch series. The next book will be a fourth sanctuary (and I can't wait to visit there). It's interesting to learn about the different mystical creatures around the world. It will be interesting to see what creatures he will introduce to us in book 4. Oh, and Kendra. I love how he always makes her the kickass heroine. I have to say that Mull always amazes me with the stories he creates. Such a wonderful, wonderful world he creates.

The last year of waiting fo this book to come out has finally paid off! I was so excited to get my hands on this book and finished reading as quickly as I could. I've been reading the Fabelhaven series since I was a kid and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to explore a world full of magic, amazing adventures, and dynamic characters! I cannot wait to see how this Dragonwatch series continues and how the adventures of Seth and Kendra intersect in the next two books.

A definite winner! When I began this series, I wasn't sure that I liked it as much as the original Fablehaven series, but I thought Brandon Mull did a great job with this book. It can't be easy writing a book from the point of view of someone who has lost his memory of who he is--his entire identity. And yet, as we progress, we know that Seth has still retained his true essence. It's interesting how he rediscovers that even while he struggles with his dark powers and what he has done or not done. In this book, the book is split fairly evenly between Seth's point of view and Kendra's point of view and she searches for him and Bracken, and as he struggles to learn his powers and how it impacts (good and bad) with who he wants to be. Some old friends come back (Warren and Vanessa) and you see a little bit more from their cousins, Knox and Tess. Although the story clearly continues at the end, it's a perfect set-up for the next book, but it still feels like a complete story. I am now going to wait patiently for the 4th and 5th book, but it's going to be hard! Special thanks to #NetGalley, #BrandonMull and #ShadowMountainPublishing for the ARC in exchange for an honest review. And a great big thank you to the author for such a great story!

Thanks so much to NetGalley and Shadow Mountain Publishing for letting me read and review this ARC. I have always enjoyed Brandon Mull and all his books ever since I was introduced to Fablehaven. All of his books have been 5-star reads and my favorites so it was no surprise that this was another 5 star read and another favorite to add to the list. This is the third book in the Dragonwatch series, which is a sequel series to Fablehaven full of all sorts of magic, adventure, and great teaching/learning themes for younger kids in it as well. I always love the reading guides at the end of the book that helps get the reader thinking and discussing what happened in the book with all the choices they face and what happens. With this third book, it picks up right from where the second book ended and flows well. It has a new perspective with Seth and a challenge he faces that makes things difficult as they continue on their journeys to help with the war with the dragons, the dangers in the magical world, picking sides and continuing to search for Bracken also. Things continue to develop more with the characters, the war with the Dragons, the journey and quests - there's a lot to digest and the end leaves you wanting more and anxiously awaiting the next installment in the series. If you haven't read the Dragonwatch series, then hurry and get started so you're ready when this comes out! You don't want to miss this wonderful, exciting and thrilling installment of this fantastic imaginative series!
