Fablehaven: Rise of the Evening Star is the second installment in the Fablehaven Series.
At the end of the school year Kendra and her brother Seth, find themselves racing back to Fablehaven, a refuge for mythical and magical creatures. Grandpa Sorenson invites three specialists-a potion master, a collector of magical relics, and a trapper of mystical creatures-to help protect the property from the Society of the Evening Star, an ancient organization determined to steal a hidden artifact of great power. Time is running out. If the artifact falls into the wrong hands, it could mean the downfall of other preserves, and possibly the world.
At the end of the school year Kendra finds a new student named 'Casey Hancock' that she can 'see through.' To her he seems ugly but to everyone else he seems like every girls' dreams. She knows this has problems written all over it. He causes many problems throughout many days. Kendra reckons that he is a goblin. At the end of a school day a man is just outside their school door - waiting for them - saying he can get rid of the problem for them. He says his name is Errol Fisk. He tells them that the thing in Kendra's class is called a kobold. He makes friends with them and asks them a favor. He wants them to get a statue from inside a funeral home. When he gets the item it bites him and teeth marks are left in his skin. After the last day the man says he needs help himself Kendra is not so sure and calls her grandpa Sorenson. He says that a ride is coming for them. So Seth and Kendra wait and wait until it shows up and the mans car and a few of his friends attack they get away and get to the preserve safely.
The Society of the Evening Star, an ancient organization determined to overthrow magical preserves and use them for their own intents and purposes, is determined to infiltrate Fablehaven.

In addition, these three specialists have a more perilous assignment—find an artifact of great power hidden on the grounds.
When the Evening Star pervades the gates of Fablehaven, it is assumed that someone inside the preserve is a mole and a traitor. If the artifact falls into the wrong hands, it could mean the downfall of other preserves and possibly the world. With good intent, Kendra and Seth become both a help and hindrance to their grandfather’s cry to protect Fablehaven.
