Amulet is a really good YA graphic novel. I am jumping into the story a little late with book three, but so what, this is just fun. I want to get all the info out of the way first that way we can just discuss the graphic novel and enjoy ourselves. "In the third installment of the thrilling Amulet series, Emily, Navin, and their crew of resistance fighters charter an airship and set off in search of Cielis, a mythical city believed to be located on an island high above the clouds. The mysterious Leon Redbeard is their guide, and there's a surprising new addition to the crew: the Elf King's son, Trellis. But is he ally or enemy? And will Emily ever be able to trust the voice of the Amulet? " Graphix is an imprint of Scholastic and you can visit their website through them, thus the link. I enjoyed this on many levels, not just because I could share this with my younger children. The artwork felt safe and inviting, really right on the mark for this type of graphic novel. The edges were round and soft, the bad guys didn't look so menacing, and even the gadgets and weapons looked non- threating: all plusses in my book. The dialogue fit well and seemed to be on a good level for just about any audience, not talking down or seemingly out of reach. I even enjoyed the over protective Mother as she doted on her children, all good stuff. The adventure is good enough and original enough not to bore; the dialogue is nice and the artwork is excellent. I ask you: what more could one want from a vehicle such as this? Not much, it hit all the marks for this graphic novel reader. Check it out, with your kids no less, sharing is fun. What are you reading today?

Reason for Reading: Next in the series.Finally, the year long wait is over and Book Three is here and well worth the wait is was! The Cloud Searchers is the best book in The Amulet series to date! Kibuishi keeps taking this story further and deepening the plot with each book. Much happens in Book 3 that brings the storyline to new heights. We learn some background of the world they are in, Alledia, and more about the stones and their powers and purposes.In this volume Emily and the gang are in search of the fabled lost city of Cielis, which some say may have taken to the skies to hide. Emily joins forces with a previous enemy, she looses two dear friends, she becomes more powerful and she finally learns what her purpose here is.Kibuishi's illustrations are, as usual, fantastic. I love the buildings, cities and towns he creates. His creatures and enemies are dark and scary and this volume has an overall dark and oppressive atmosphere with its colours ranging from greys to black. This suits the story very well.The author puts a few references to incidents from both previous volumes quickly here and there which a reader appreciates when there has been so much time since publication of Book One. I was excited from the first page! The only thing I'm concerned about is how long the wait will be until Book Four hits the shelves!

Kazu Kabuishi creates wonderfully beautiful graphic novels with just the right balance of humor, action, plot and character development. This book is no exception. I look to be a long time fan and hope they will be making the Amulet series into a movie. Can't wait for the next one!

This was the third book in the Amulet series by Kibuishi. It was an excellent installment in the series; the beautiful artwork and fantastic storyline make it a pleasure to read and very engaging.Emily, Nevin, and crew set out to find the forgotten city of Cielis in hopes of finding the other Stonekeepers and saving the land from the evil Elf King's rule. Trellis, the Elf King's son, joins the team after being declared a traitor by his father.This was a wonderful read. The story deepens even more in this installment. A lot is learned about the history of the world and about how the Elf King came to power. Like the previous books there is a lot of adventure. When the characters set off in an airship to find the lost city of Cielis they are attacked by Wyvern's and have to battle a furious storm. This installment is paced wonderfully, introduces the readers to new wonders, and progresses the story quickly leaving it at a good point. The artwork is is absolutely spectacular. There is so much beauty and magic in the artwork that goes with the story; together they are just absolutely magical and wondrous.Overall an excellent installment. Fans of the first two books will love this one. The artwork is spectacular, the story deepens as we learn more history, and I just can't wait to see what happens next.

This is the third volume is Kibuishi's amulet series and we return to Emily and Navin, in their continued quest to help defeat the elf king. Leon Redbeard is tasked with guiding them to the guardian council, the lost rulers and most powerful stone keepers in the kingdom. If anyone can help them they can. There's just one problem...their city disappeared long ago and many think it has been destroyed. But the group has to try to find them. Along the way they meet new friends, old so called enemies, and a powerful new foe. Emily must continue to master the amulet in order to help them along their way and to ensure their survival. Even with the introduction of more characters Kazu creates a world that's easy to inhabit and follow along with (although it does help to reread the previous volumes before picking up this one.) In this book we learn even more about the elf kingdom and some of its darkest secrets. There are only a couple places that I wish we found out more about the characters, like when they land at the fill stations. What's the story between Rico and the owner? Hopefully more of the story will be revealed along the's just one of those nagging little mysteries. The artwork continues to shine and allow you to get deeper and deeper into the world around the characters. Kazu and his team do an amazing job with creating depth in the illustrations and colors. I continue to highly recommend this series every chance I get and the only downside of the series is having to wait for that next volume to find out what happens to Emily, Navin, and the gang.

It's been a month or two since I read the first two in this series, so it took me a minute to remember what had happened before and get caught up to where we are now in the story. I love the artwork in this graphic novel series. And the story is interesting enough to grab even adults. I think most readers enjoy the idea of a quest that the main character has to go on to either find themselves or save something. In this story, I feel like it's turning out to be both. Emily is a young character who has lost someone very close to her and trying to find her the same time, she has been chosen to go on this epic journey to help save this world. The end of this book is a little sad and ends on a cliffhanger, so I would suggest having book 4 handy to get started on when you've finished. If you enjoy graphic novels, YA Adventure/Fantasy, or the other books in the series, I think you will enjoy this book.

Yet another book from my purchases in this site and enjoyed it. Even though volumes 1, 2, 4 and 5 were bought in store while I somehow got my hands on the sixth one, it's actually just as good as the 15 part Bone Series by Jeff Smith (the author's name sounds like an American Dad character, am I right?). I started reading the first volume of this series then started reading the first volume of the Bone series after that, each in late spring 2011 at Rutgers University moments before my graduation in June of the same year. One year later, I got the first volumes of Bone and this series for myself as a copy of my own. That is until Bone ended the series in 2013 and this series went into hiatus in the same year as Bone's conclusion, then this series made a sixth installment this year. If you want to see more of my customer review saga, look in Allegiant, Batman Incorporated Volume 2, the Lightning Thief, Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal Volume 3, Frozen the Junior Novelization, Batman Zero Year Volume 4 and Red Hood and the Outlaws Volume 1. I've just concluded the New 52 DC Universe Saga (formerly a Dark Knight Trilogy until I remembered receiving multiple comics from that series), moments before I became aware of its so called "Future's End" series, or something like that I forgot since my last internet search. Although I concluded everything else in my Book Collection (in case you're wondering what happened after I got this book and many others, I donated them all to Goodwill and deleted their Nook Samples), there is still one more title to conclude and that is the Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire Strategy Guides. Unfortunately, they haven't been announced as much as the title that's based on the guides so they're still not available for preorder yet but will be soon. Date of origin: June 29, 2014 at 8:35 PM (nearly two years after this one is purchased)
