We return for the 6th installment in the Amulet series and find our intrepid heroes facing just as much danger and difficulty as ever. The city of Lucien has been abandoned, its people forced to shelter underground. Navin manages to get himself banned from operating any vehicles. Emily and Vigo are still trying to stop Max from siding with the Elf King. Trellis is still with the humans, rather than claiming the throne of the elves. There are giant robots, ghostly beings, battles between airships, and the mysterious voice that still wants to control the stonekeepers. In the midst of all the danger and excitement there is still time to touch on subjects like friendship, trust, regrets, revenge, and forgiveness.
Fans of Kibuishi's series and readers who enjoy graphic novels and manga will not want to miss this book. This is a complex story with lots of characters, so if you haven't read the earlier books, you may want to read them in order to understand and enjoy them to the fullest extent.
I read an e-book provided by the publisher through NetGalley. It will be published August 26, 2014.
