Kirkus Reviews
2014-06-29
Wraithlike attackers force a mass evacuation and a cryptic prophecy's meaning begins to clear in this headlong continuation of Kibuishi's deservedly popular series.The action picks up in midflight as Navin and companions survive the destruction of their giant robot suits, then help the fleeing survivors of the city of Lucien by fighting a rear-guard action against swarms of diaphanous, cat-eyed, zombie-making Dark Scouts. Meanwhile Emily, Trellis and Vigo reluctantly join traitorous elf Max Griffin in another visit to the Voice's realm of memories that leads to the death of a major character—along with a rescue, reunions with old friends and a lead-in to the next episode. Though the ongoing plotlines and large cast make familiarity with earlier outings a necessity, this one still features a crowd-pleasing blend of lively dialogue ("And I don't care what the prophecies say. You're still a slacker"), easy-to-follow, nonstop action, elves, robots and derring-do amid awesome sound effects ("D-DOOOM SHHAAAAAA," "SZRAK!"). Most of the cleanly drawn, lushly backgrounded panels focus on faces, with occasional full-spread scenes adding dramatic visual highlights.A page-turner that gives the heroic Stonekeepers plenty of chances to show their stuff and moves the main story along an inch or two. (Graphic fantasy. 10-12)

    Great read for kids, pre teens and adults.

    My son and daughter highly enjoyed the colors, the story telling and the plot twists and such. They are re-reading and telling their friends about it too.

    You gotta try it out.

    Ha! I don't usually do graphic novel reviews. I should write mor

    Ha! I don't usually do graphic novel reviews. I should write more but I fly through them so quick. Then I forget to do it. lol

    Ok, I was fortunate to grab an ARC of Amulet #6: Escape From Lucien from Netgalley and as usual, I loved it!

    The story and art continue to be consistent and fantastic. It has a wonderful flow using a combination of panels and text. Between the images and the text it's like watching a movie in my head. I loved the whole experience and I have that with every book in this series.

    Book 6 picks up where 5 left off of which is good. Each book has its own arc which is completed at the end which is good. I love stories like these.

    The characters each have their own issues and developments which I appreciate. Each book adds more and more to the overall story which is spectacular because this story is not episodic like most comics or graphic novels. This reads more like a continuous novel which I enjoy more. I suppose this is where I start to notice how the story is slightly lacking. 

    It's extremely minor, mind you. It's just that there is so much to tell and with adding new characters and subplots, it's hard to fit that all in one book. I understand completely why it is done because sometimes there are page limits to comics. There is a lot of work that goes into one book and I can only read in awe during each one.

    Still, this is one of my favorite graphic novel series and I seriously urge you to pick this up if you're open minded to comic. It's not just for kids. I don't even have kids of my own but I love the story. So if you're young at heart or just enjoy a good read, pick this up. You won't be disappointed. You might want to pick up the whole series. You'll blow through them pretty fast. ^_~

    4.5 out of 5 rating for me!

    (An ARC was provided by Netgalley for an honest review. I was not compensated in any other way.)
