Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Five--no, three pages into Amulet and you'll be hooked." --Jeff Smith, creator of BONE

"[The] action-packed adventure sequences move at an exciting clip. . . . Part fantasy . . . and part manga, this volume has much to appeal to readers." --BOOKLIST

"A richly drawn graphic-fantasy series following in the footsteps of BONE and a must for all fantasy fans." --KIRKUS REVIEWS

"Stellar artwork, imaginative character design, moody color and consistent pacing." --PW COMICS WEEK

VOYA - Valerie Burleigh
The fifth book in the Amulet series starts immediately after the fourth and continues Emily's story. This graphic novel does not stand alone; the reader will need background knowledge from the preceding books to follow the story line. As Emily continues to fight for justice, Max wars with himself and his responsibilities to help a friend. When the rescue goes awry, with horrible consequences, he becomes vengeful and blocks Emily's way as she fights to conquer the Elf King. Unbeknownst to Emily, the voice of her Amulet is not what she imagined, and she must grapple with the results. As with the remainder of this series, this volume contains detailed, colored artwork with some text. The images showing the fantasy world are extraordinary and relay a lot of action scenes that will appeal to fans. Readers will be drawn in by the plot twists as well as the characters' internal conflicts. Emily continues to be a strong female lead, while Max is quite the antagonist. This volume should be added to collections that contain the first four. Reviewer: Valerie Burleigh
Kirkus Reviews
In this popular series' latest episode, an ambush by the masked elf king's ally Max Griffin leads Emily to a disturbing revelation about the mysterious voice that speaks through her own amulet. Having set the stage with a flashback that illuminates Max's troubled past, Kibuishi positively channels the first Star Wars film by turning Emily's brother Navin and other friends into hotshot fighter pilots for a climactic dogfight replete with sizzling bolts of energy and massive explosions. This is followed by a long collective fall through the air during which Emily makes a desperate lifesaving venture into the "void." There, times and memories mingle, and the dark entity that had guided her before challenges her to an ominous chess match. Expertly framing his clearly drawn figures in diversely arranged sequential panels, the author continues to tell his tale at a breakneck pace. Though his cast of humans, elves, robots, talking animals and monsters is now so large that even confirmed fans may have trouble keeping track, no one will soon forget the demonic new flying giant spider creature that Max rides into battle. Fine worldbuilding, with high adventure aplenty and characters and plotlines that continue to develop intriguing twists. (Graphic fantasy. 10-12)

The last book of the series for 2012, but is far from over! To see more of my customer review saga look in Allegiant, Batman Incorporated Vol. 2, Batman Vol. 4, Batgirl Vol. 1, Supergirl Vol. 1, Red Hood and the Outlaws Vol. 1, Bone Vol. 4, Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal Volumes 3, 4 and 5, Pokemon XY Pokedex Guide, Frozen the Junior Novelization, 50 Shades of Grey, all five installments to Percy Jackson and the Olympians plus the first four installments to the Heroes of Olympus Series, the Kane Chronicles Trilogy and the first four installments to Amulet series. My most recent book I've read so far is Four a Divergent Collection but I'm still not writing a review for that. The reason of how I'm named Mr. X 0024 is that Mr. X is my alternate name and 24 is the age I first made this ongoing saga of Customer Reviews. So now you'll wonder no more!
