Book Review: Fablehaven (5): Keys to the Demon Prison

Fablehaven: Keys to the Demon Prison, by Brandon Mull, illustrated by Brandon Dorman, Shadow Mountain, Salt Lake City, UT, 2010.
This is the fifth and climatic installment of this fascinating fantasy series.  It is interesting things always seem to be able to get worse.  And in this book, both of the siblings, Kendra and Seth end up prisoners of the evil Sphinx.  However there are things even more evil than the misguided Sphinx, who himself repents in the end.  Seth himself is fooled by the demon Graulas, who had earlier befriended him.  He tricks Seth into restoring him, but that doesn't go too well.  So we are faced with a last desperate battle against the demons as the arise from their captivity ready to take over the world.  There are many unexpected twists in this show, and it keeps you jumping until the end.  The only sad part is having to say goodbye to the characters.  However I understand there is a sequel five book set coming out.  So the fun continues.
