Kazu Kibuishi's thrilling, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling series continues!

Emily and her friends think they'll find the help they need in Cielis, but something isn't right. Streets that were once busy are deserted, and the townspeople who are left live in crippling fear. Emily is escorted to the Academy where she's expected to compete for a spot on the Guardian Council, the most powerful Stonekeepers. But as the number of competitors gets smaller and smaller, a terrible secret is slowly uncovered—a secret that, if left buried, means certain destruction of everything Emily fights for.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Michael Jung PhD
When readers last left Emily and her family in The Cloud Searchers, they had navigated past incredible obstacles to arrive at Cielis, the fabled city in the clouds where the Guardian Council, a group of the most powerful Stonekeepers in existence, is rumored to reside. Yet as Emily—a fledgling Stonekeeper herself—prepares to compete for a seat on the Council, she finds the floating city is full of nothing but empty streets and only a small handful of people who claim the city is populated by ghosts. Meanwhile, Emily's lost friends Miskit and Cogsley find a puzzle of their own when they encounter an old Stonekeeper who warns them of the fear and corruption within the Guardian Council. As these new and old friends find each other, they uncover a terrible secret about Cielis and the Stonekeepers that may threaten the salvation they hoped to find. Writer/artist Kibuishi creates additional layers of mystery and intrigue in his "Amulet" graphic novel series, which continues to successfully merge whimsical characters with dark epic adventure. Kibuishi's art continues to be as versatile as ever and readers can look forward to paintings of vast alien landscapes populated by humans, robots, and baby dragons. Newcomers may want to read some of the earlier volumes in this series, however, as the story's plots and subplots have become much more complicated and new readers may not be able to keep track of the relationships between the characters and the intricate history of the Stonekeepers.
