By Brandon Mull. Author of the Spirit Animal Series you listed. Totally awesome!!!! I read them first and am sharing them with my kids now! They love them! What I love is that at the end of the books there are discussion questions you can ask your kids. The Five Kingdom Series 4 books so far one yet to come. Also by Brandon Mull. Super awesome!!! Dare I say even better than Fablehaven??!!!
Dunno but your kids will love them. I really enjoyed the Beyonders series by Brandon Mull as well. There was one character that freaked me out a little. Ferrin was his name. Totally brilliant and cool concept for a character! But you should find him and read about his particular abilities and judge if you are ok with letting your kid read it. They are even better than the first series of books. It ties in the Roman personas of the Greek Gods and introduces you to another camp of Roman demigods. Of corse Percy and Annabeth are still major players. About the Egyptian Gods told by a brother and sister who are always making snarky remarks while the other is speaking.
Totally hilarious banter. The storyline is amazing. The Sisters Grimm series by Michael Buckley is a hilariously entertaining series! When my mother bought me the Charlie Bone series, she also got Artemis Fowl. I love them both!
