Fablehaven, Book 2:  Rise of the Evening Star

Last summer Kendra and Seth discovered their grandparents were actually caretakers of a magical preserve called Fablehaven. They had the adventure of a lifetime fighting Bahumat, Muriel, and even watching their grandma turn from a hen back to a human. When Kendra sought the help of the Fairy Queen to save Fablehaven and her family last summer, she was granted magical sight. She can now see magical beings and creatures without the aid of the milk. The adventure is not restricted to Fablehaven though. As a new boy joins Kendra’s class, the rest of the girls in the class can’t wait to get close to him, but Kendra sees him for what he really is, a Kobold. A man appears offering his services to get rid of the Kobold under the condition she and Seth help him with a mission. Kendra isn’t sure whether to trust this stranger, but isn’t able to get in touch with anyone at Fablehaven for information. When Grandpa does finally get in touch with Kendra and Seth, they are told he has been injured and someone is being sent to bring them to Fablehaven right away.

Grandpa realizes someone is trying to sabotage the mission from inside, but who is the saboteur?
