I’m going to review the series Fablehaven by Brandon Mull. I like this series because the suspense in the books is really good. I also like how Mull adds a whole different reality to our “normal” reality. It makes you wonder, are we really alone in this world? If not, then are the other being(s) sharing the world with us friendly or hostile? Mull creates this whole world that none of the main characters even imagined was real, and then hits them in the face with the news. “Hey, all the creatures that you have ever heard of in myths and legends are real. Have a nice day!!” I especially love the suspense at the end of his books. Mull ends with something crucial, like one of the main characters dying, or getting kidnapped, or the main antagonist in the series is suddenly free from his/her unbreakable prison.In conclusion, I hope you love this series as much as I did. But if you don’t, post a comment on this blog post explaining why.
Here is chapter 2 of Dragonland. This is actually the chapter that you find out what the last chapter was. I hope to finish chapter 3 by February 28.
The Raging Creatures
I woke to Ian shaking me and yelling, “MARK IS GONE! MARK IS GONE!” I sat up. “Polar bears? Attacking?” I groaned. “NO MATTHEW! MARK IS GONE!” That time I heard it. Mark was gone? I could not afford to lose another brother. I immediately asked Ian, “What happened?” Ian answered, “A dinosaur broke into the house and then Mark turned into a dragon! It was so scary! Mark tried to attack but the dinosaur hit him! Then he unsheathed his sword and swung at mark! Mark flew away and the dinosaur followed him!” I wondered a million thoughts at once. Why did he not attack me? I’m the second most powerful dragon there is? Why did he just follow Mark? Why did he not attack all of us? “Ian,” I managed, “You saw all of that?” Ian answered, “Yes.” I thought it might be an April fool’s joke considering it was April first, but no. Ian said it was all real. I got ready to tell Ian what I didn’t want to tell him ever. “Ian, you are one of us. A dragon. You can think you are a dragon at any time and turn into a dragon.” “Well, who is my dad? Another dragon?” He asked. I replied, “Ian, I am your dad. I imagined you and you came alive at what a regular human would be age 3.” “WELL THEN WHY DID YOU NOT TAKE CARE OF ME LIKE REAL DADS DO?” Screamed Ian. I said with sangfroid, “I did take care of you. I was you teacher all from preschool to last year. This year I changed my age to be a new student ready to prepare you for training.” Ian looked shocked. “How many kids have you had?” I told him, “5. I have had you, Dalton, Theo, Josh, and Sean.” “DALTON’S YOUR KID!?! AWESOME! WE’RE BROTHERS!” Ian yelled with excitement, “Who took care of them?” “Mark did.” I said sadly. “Who will take care of them now?” Ian asked. “Lets find out!” I said, determined to find him. “He’s dead.” Ian said coldly. “NO HE IS NOT!” I screamed, “YOU HAVE NO LAND POWERS AT ALL!” Ian fell to the ground. I realized I had blasted my son with the most powerful blast of water I could. Luckily, he would heal quickly and we could get to work.
Finally I remembered to put this on the blog! Here I have the fourth awesome chapter about OCEANI!!! Oh wait, that was actually Ocean. Oceani is next. – Direct quote from this chapter.
Ocean the ocean fanatic
This is Ocean. He really likes the ocean (Duh!) and he is very recalcitrant. He is voted to find the thing all divers seek, The Irish luck treasure. Ocean likes to transpose the books on the bookshelf at the library, so all of the librarians shun him. Ocean is also very salutary considering he plays basketball against me every day. Ocean’s polyglot part of him allows him to go to different countries. Ocean also includes all of the pariah at recess so he is known as Ocean the bomb. Another reason they call him that is because he once wore a scintillated dress for Halloween. He also fell into a tributary and was very sangfroid about it. He got a remuneration for that. anyways, that is OCEANI!!! Oh wait, that was actually Ocean. Oceani is next.
I hope you enjoyed it and I hope you enjoy my next chapter, the one about Oceani.
Here is what you have all been waiting for, THE WEEK 12 SENTENCES!!! Here is the intro to Oceani.
Ocean with an I at the end
Oceani is a twin of Ocean (Duh) and he is very carnivorous. He never escalates in size so he doesn’t know why we have to look down at him. he is also hirsute so he shaves A LOT!!! There is a complete equilibrium between Ocean and him. Once I made a huge contretemps and made him go flying off of his bike. Woops! He ended up breaking an arm. He thought it would do some good to pay me back and expunged me. That gave me a bruised arm. Then a harbinger bird came and gave me a message It said that Oceani was going to die before the age of ten. I did not want to have any more dulcet music, My other brother Salmon had already died. Anyways, Oceani’s bike was irreparable. We had to buy him a new one even though he didn’t use it ever. Okay, back to the NEAR past (That crash happened 4 years ago). Oceani now performs fo Celtic Ocean and he is have a hard time not being doggerel.He finally seems to get the hang of it though. Now, finally, whe will take a look at our last family member, Snowi.
Hello guys! Lately I just have not found time to write, but I came up with an idea. I decided, since we have to do sentences with vocabulary words every Wednesday, I would make a story and make 1 chapter be the sentences for that week. I will try to post them every Thursday so I feel like it is time for a new story, that I hope you will enjoy.
My Adventures in Vocabulary World
Chapter 1 – Mark the sports fanatic
Hello! My Name is Matthew. I have wanderlust so I like to travel a lot.I like climbing trees but all of the good ones have tendrils. My brother Mark’s reverie about the time he had at a verve football game was distracting. I ostracize everyone that comes in my seat so that I get to sit near the coach. Every now and then we go to the beach. There we watch the lambent flame tongues of the fire. I also love walking through the sediment of the ocean. Wait! MARK IS A SOMNAMBULIST! AHHHH! I screamed so loud Mark jumped up and hit his head on the wall. My Mom came downstairs to see what happened in complete pulchritude mode. Mark grabbed a chip and started to masticate it down. What a sports fanatic, I thought.
Please comment so that I know what to do to make my stories a lot better. I hope you liked it!
Well, since so many people have posted about their story I decided “Well I’ll try that too, I need some more blog posts” so I have decided to introduce the planet Earth to the world of my story “Fallen.” So I got this idea a while ago from a dream (which was not as detailed as my story) and in the dream I saw this figure with wings in chains (that’s all that I remember from the dream). Then suddenly this idea popped up in my head. Lately I have broadened on my ideas for the story but since I still have not written very much I’ll probably just give you a small sample of my story. I’m about to give you a sample even though I’m not sure I should (I feel like people are going to call Fallen “silly”) but here I go, welcome to the story of Fallen.
Hope is a gift and a curse in dark times. It leads you like a light in a black hallway but it fades out just when you reach the end. Beware hope.
A woman’s voice said “What shall we do with this child, he has the mark of the Fallen?”
“Cast him down, he shall learn pain his destiny is hard and only he can decide what will be the end” replied a booming voice
“ He is so young give him a chance.”
“No this was part of our agreement with that !@#$%^& , he must go.”
“ NO, I shall not have another war on my hands, he shall go whether you like it or not!”
“ Yes master.”
“ Now let me dwell upon my plans, go and enjoy you last moments with the child. And I didn’t want this to happen, of all people it had to be him, I truly am sorry -sigh- I am.”
Today a student in my class told a great first part of a story in Google Docs. I think that it took a lot of bravery to share it even though it was a great story. It just goes to show that if you put your mind to something then you can do it. The story composure was partially about his daily life and some of his experiences. It was also about things that he had just made up which is great. In my perspective stories are a way to express yourself in a way that can be enjoyable. If there is ever an author’s note in a book I would highly recommend you read because it can change your perspective of the story in a way that it could make the story better because it may make you see what the author wants you to see in the book rather than some other perspective. I’ll be honest, I would of thought of the story he told a completely different way if I didn’t know him. So next time you pick up a book, read the author’s note, epilogue (probably after you’ve read the book!), preface or whatever extra-information section it is.
