Exciting New Installment in The Dragonwatch Series!

Alysa here, and I've got a special guest review for you today. My sixth-grade son Benjamin and his best friend Zaya have both read and reviewed the latest Brandon Mull book. Enjoy!


Dragonwatch: Master of the Phantom Isle—Book 3 in Brandon Mull's Dragonwatch series.

This thrilling sequel to Dragonwatch: Wrath of the Dragon King, is packed with action. Seth is desperate to figure out where he fits in in the magical world. Kendra is equally desperate to find her brother, Seth. Kendra's quest to find Seth brings her to a fallen dragon sanctuary. Can Kendra find her brother? Can she and her allies win the perilous war with the dragons? Can Seth resist the darkness that surrounds him? Find out in Dragonwatch: Master of the Phantom Isle.

Zaya: I was excited to read Master of the Phantom Isle. because the book before is a real cliffhanger. I actually think it’s probably one of the best cliffhangers because it really involves the main characters and its resolution could completely affect the plot line. I had to find out what would happen! It was fun to read and It really pulled me in.

Benjamin: Yep! Ditto.

Zaya: When I only had 20 pages left, my older brother stole it from me at school and I was devastated. And super mad. I yelled at him.


Benjamin: When I got the review copy, I immediately went to one of my favorite reading spots (my parents' bed) and read it in one sitting. Or I should say I read it in one laying.

Dragonwatch: Master of the Phantom Isle is exciting, perilous and action packed. It has impending doom (in a good way), life-like characters, and another great cliffhanger ending. There is some violence but it isn’t gory. These books have no swearing, and there’s no major romance in this book. 

Zaya: Less than a week after I finished it, I read it again. On my re-read I skipped some pages because they were sad and made me cry. In fact, I read it a third time and loved it just as much (and skipped those pages again).

Benjamin: Unlike Zaya, I did not read it over and over again. However, I did read Dragonwatch books 1 and 2 in preparation. Then when I had finished book 3, I sometimes just opened up the book occasionally and read a random section.

Zaya: Both of us definitely plan to read the next book.

Benjamin: Yes. And I plan to re-read books 1, 2, and 3 right before I read book 4.

We would recommend this series for ages 11 and up. If you like Alex Rider or Michael Vey you might like Dragonwatch, though Alex Rider is realistic fiction, and Michael Vey is Sci-fi, and Dragonwatch is fantasy. We think you should read the Fablehaven series first, then Dragonwatch series, because Fablehaven gives you background knowledge. But the Dragonwatch series does stand alone.

Zaya: I started reading Fablehaven in third grade. Now I’m in sixth grade and I still love almost all of Brandon Mull’s books.

Benjamin: We only owned the first two books of Fablehaven, so I read the first two books a bunch of times. Then I got the other books and read through the whole series.

If you're looking for something to read, Fablehaven and Dragonwatch are definitely the way to go!
