My book, Fablehaven, by Brandon Mull, is about a magical preserve for mythical creatures. Two siblings, Kendra and Seth, go to visit their grandparents at their mansion in Connecticut. They soon discover that their grandparents are caretakers of the magical preserve called Fablehaven. At the end, the protagonist Kendra confronts the fairy queen when her family is in grave danger and is rewarded when the queen offers her an army of fairies to fight with her. They save everyone and Fablehaven does not fall. The overall theme of the book is that good always prevails over evil in the end.

In order to reach the shrine she had to cross a lake full of deadly naiads who wanted to pull her under and drown her. She would have been safe outside the water but instead took a miniature paddle boat to reach the shrine while the naiads desperately tried to tip her boat.
