Book Summary 

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?

My Review
I fell in love with the original Fablehaven series when I read the first installment way back in 2009. It was different and had great characters that kids and adults loved. Now, we have the third book in the Dragonwatch series called, Master of the Phantom Isle: A Fablehaven Adventure. It picks up immediately where the second book ended. The Dragons are loose and trying to take over, Seth has been kidnapped by the dark unicorn Ronodin and has lost his memory, and Kendra is the last caretaker of Wyrmroost with its gates soon to fall to the dragons.

This series was originally meant for middle-grade readers. Middle grade is fiction aimed at children aged roughly between the ages of eight and twelve. I am nowhere near that age but I have loved it as much as this age group. Any fantasy lover will enjoy reading this whole series. As I always say though, readers will enjoy this new book more if they have read all of the previous books. Many of the characters in this novel have been in the previous books, though I also love all of the new characters introduced in Master of the Phantom Isle. 
Be prepared for exciting scenes full of non-stop action fighting off a giant octopus, dealing with the living dead in the Underworld, merfolk, more fairies, and of course many more dragons. The character development for main characters Seth and Kendra was there as well. It was very hard watching Seth do the things that he does in this book because of his memory loss. Both sibling's powers increase in this novel too. It was great to have some of my favorites from previous novels like Calvin the tiny hero and Tanu the Potion Master playing bigger roles. Overall this book is a huge hit and a fantastic addition to the Dragonwatch series and the overall Fablehaven family of books.
