I have the Keys To The Demon Prison

I have the Keys To The Demon Prison. For those of you who don't know what that is, it is the new release by best selling author, Brandon Mull. The book is the much awaited fifth instalment of the Fablehaven series. Wahoo!



I got quite a kick out of calling people today to tell them I have it. Something happens when you start a conversation with this title.

Here is an example from when I called my mom.

My mom: Hello.

Me: I have the Keys to the Demon Prison.

My mom: Dead silence. Followed by more dead silence. Then, "What?"

Me: I have the Keys to the Demon Prison.

My mom: Even longer silence. I heard a real live cricket chirp at least six times. Then she said, "I don't know what to say to that." Followed by more silence.

Me laughing hysterically: It's a book.

My mom, who doesn't read fantasy: Oh, that's nice. Can I call you back?

I called my hubby. It went something like this...

Hubby: Hello.

Me: I have the Keys to the Demon Prison.

Hubby: What?

Me: I have the Keys to the Demon Prison.

Hubby: What are you talking about?

I laughed again. When I hung up, I called five more people with equally satisfying results. It's almost unanimous. If you call someone out of the blue and tell them you have the Keys to the Demon Prison, you leave them speechless. You all should try it. And the best part about it is that I'm not prank calling them. Because I do have the Keys to the Demon Prison, (Man talk about free publicity. I mentioned the book by name eight times and posted a picture. So you should all feel motivated to go buy it. It's a great series!)And now, the real fun will come when I sit down and sink into the pages. My kids will be so jealous, but that's what happens when you own, you guessed it, the Keys to the Demon Prison.

You should call Bryn. She'd know what you're talking about and be extremely jealous you've got the book. She's begging to go to the release party tonight, but I think I'd feel like I'd been to the demon prison if we tried to fight those crowds!

Amie, Bryn should get to go. I understand this is his last release party with Shadow Mountain and they put on a great show. It's a once in a life time thing. I'd go if I could. :)

Thanks Chersti!
