Emily and her friends, including Navin, go to the cloud city of Cielis, where they hope to ask the Guardian Council for its help. But when they get there, they realize that something is terribly, terribly wrong. The streets are totally empty and the citizens that have stayed in the city are paralyzed with fear. Trellis and Luger are taken prisoner and, rather than find the help she needs, Emily is told that she must compete for a spot on the Guardian Council, which governs Alledia. As she fights to stay in the competition she uncovers a horrible secret that will change things forever … unless Emily can do something to stop it.
The First Three Books
If you’re wondering what we’re talking about because you haven’t read the first three books in the Amulet series yet, go and read them! Like The Hunger Games, they’ll have you hooked in a minute – we promise! The twists and turns you’ll experience right along with the heroic characters in the books – Emily and her crew – will leave you wanting more!
We can’t really review Amulet without talking about the artwork, too. After all, it’s a graphic novel series, so a lot of the focus is on the images. Basically, these pictures fly off the page and really give you a feeling of being right there in the middle of the action. Check out the two-page spread of the drop ships flying into the city (pages 20 and 21), and of the fight scenes throughout the book!
