For getting me addicted to this series (I saw that alot of people were buying this series and sure enough wanted to see what was all the fuss about....I ended up buying all four volumes!!! not all at once mind you...but as soon as I finished reading the first volume...I couldn't stop...there goes my "mad money" stash)...but well worth the money. I'll pay any artist/comic artist for a create story line with amazing artwork that keeps me hooked. Though I am a penny pincher sometimes its just better to get 'em while there hot...if you know what I mean.

Emily and her friends think that part of their troubles are over and they'll finally meet the Guardian Council. But something isn't right. Streets are empty and the townspeople live in fear of those around them. The Elf King hasn't arrived yet, but he might as well have. Emily is escorted to the Academy where she'll compete with others for a spot on the Council. But a terrible and frighting secret is about to be revealed and destruction is looming ever closer.Kazu continues to weave a wonderful tale of adventure and intrigue. Every page brings a new surprise into this journey and at the end of each volume I can't help but wait for the next one to find out what happens next. In this volume the characters continue to evolve and show new depths to who they are as they get closer to finding out a dark secret. The only minor gripe that I have about the story is just how many characters we're keeping up with but it's a minor one as each character adds more to the story. But it's the same type of gripe I had about Jeff Smith's Bone and when read all together it's much easier to follow along. The artwork continues to evolve and grow as well, creating new and more detailed worlds.I eagerly look forward to the next volume in this series and hope the wait won't be too long.

Amulet: The Last Council by Kazu Kibuishi is the fourth book in this series. I had not read the previous three before beginning this novel. The first thing I noticed when thumbing through the pages is the amazing artwork. I wish I had pictures to show but I don't think it would do this book justice. I was able to follow the story line fairly well. I'm sure if I went back and read the first three books I would have more of the back story but it is a good stand alone as well. The story is about a girl named Emily. She's on her way to Cielis to meet with the Guardian Council. Things and people are not what they seem. The town is like a ghost town. Emily needs to learn to trust her own instincts. Even friends can be foes. She also finds unlikely allies unexpectedly. There's also a few comic relief characters that are funny. I think the story line is good. I think this book is good for grahic novel lovers. I'd also recommend this book to middle graders. My middle grader was instantly drawn to this novel and practically snatched it out of my hands. I don't read a lot of graphic novels but I wouldn't mind reading the next book in the series as well as the previous ones.

This is the fourth book in the Amulet series by Kibuishi. I love this series and this book added even more to the story. Emily and her friends travel to Cielis to hopefully get help from the Council to fight the Elf King. Things don't go as planned and Emily is thrown into a contest against other Stonekeepers to see who is worthy of a seat on the council. During this the Elf King's son is thrown into jail, and Emily's shipmates are left wandering the strangely empty town of Cielis. This installment didn't progress the story as far as other installments have, mainly because our group of characters gets split up for the majority of the story. We also don't get to spend much time with the characters we know and love (much of the story follows Emily and she is separated from everyone else); but we do meet some interesting new characters.Emily meets a few other Stonekeepers, so it was interesting to see how the other Stonekeepers wield their Stones. Emily also seems to have come to an uneasy balance with her Stone and is starting to trust its advice more than she used to. The plot takes some unexpected twists and turns that kept me guessing and wondering how everything will pan out in the end.Miskit and Cogsley have some interesting adventures of their own and acquire an adorable new little dragon friend. Can't wait to see what their new little dragon friend turns into over time!The illustration is colorful, beautiful and wonderful...as it has been for all of the books in this series. I love the artwork in these books, they are just so wonderful to look at. There is still a little bit of a steampunk element in this book, but not as much as in previous books.Overall another wonderful installment in this series. Beautiful artwork, great characters, a fascinating world, and a story that keeps getting better and better. The story doesn't progress as much in this installment as it has in previous ones; mainly because the characters are split up for the majority of the story. I still really enjoyed reading this and can't wait to see what happens next.

The fourth book in the Amulet series was just as enthralling as the previous three. In this installment, the group makes new friends, finds new enemies, and faces betrayal and loss. I'm still really enjoying the artwork in these books, the pictures are so expressive. As a person who is fairly new to the graphic novel genre, I am not used to having a picture tell so much of the story without relying on words. This volume did not have as big of a cliffhanger as the last one, but you'll still be eager to find out what happens next. Emily continues to be tested as she finds her way to who she is meant to be.
