Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4 Up–Emily and Navin return, in a fight to save their mother from a toxic poison. The evil Elf King is out to get Emily, however, since she is one of the only Stonekeepers left who can stop his reign of terror. He sends his disappointing son, Prince Trellis, and Luger, one of his most wicked cronies, out to find her, with the threat that if Trellis doesn’t kill her, he’ll be killed himself. Emily, Navin, and their band of robotic protectors set out for the city of Kanalis to locate a doctor who can cure their mom. While there they encounter Leon, a bounty hunter whose mission in life is to defeat the Elf King. This band of heroes learns that their desired cure is the fruit of the gadoba tree, found only on deadly Demon’s Head Mountain. Emily, Leon, and her guard Miskit set out for the mountain, with Emily practicing control over her amulet along the way. This book ends with a thrilling fight and the promise of more adventures to come. Stunning illustration spreads open each new section, and the robots and animal residents of Kanalis provide a soft and sometimes humorous counterpoint to the action-packed story. This book will be extremely satisfying to fans of the first volume.–Laura Amos, Newport News Public Library, VA
Kirkus Reviews
The quest to find a cure for her poisoned mother sets young Emily to battling not only minions of the evil Elf King but also the enticements of the power-hungry magical amulet that has fallen into her possession. Taking up the tale where he left off in Book 1: The Stonekeeper (2008), Kibuishi contrives to fill spacious, cleanly separated sequential panels with nonstop and (usually) easy-to-follow action, lots of sound effects (SZRAK! FWOOM! TOK! SZRAK! FWOOM!!!) and, around Emily's human family, a large cast of colorful characters from shark-toothed elves to a grove of ancient, sentient Gadoba trees. Low on gore but high on fights, flights and scary monsters, the episode hurtles along like the mighty blasts of magical energy that emanate from Emily's amulet. By the end she has her mother back, but a Mission has emerged to keep her in the otherworld realm of Alledia. Stay tuned. (Graphic fantasy. 10-12)

    Great Story for Kids and Adults

    The art and story are able to keep children interested and engaged, but it also is fun for the adults sharing it with the kids.

    A great follow-up and series builder

    Book one ended with me licking my chops for more, and Kazu has not let me down.

    I got started on his stuff through the Flight Comics AnthologiesFlight, Volume One and then with Daisy KutterDaisy Kutter: The Last Train

    Book one lays the ground work for a great world of fantasy and SciFi, with a dash of steam-punkery.

    Here in book two he takes the story and really starts to flesh out the characters and the world they are in.

    I enjoyed it quite a bit, and it was safe enough to read to my 4-year-old.

    The only complaint that I have is that it seems that parts of the book got more time and attention than others, but over all I loved the artwork.

    I look forward to the next book.

    A OK Graphic novel

    I bought this book for my little sister's 11th birthday and after seeing the one or two of the minor scary/disturbing pictures (the elf prince and the car crash) I was a tiny bit worried it'd might be bloody or way to dark for a 11 year old. The book was a little dark but not bad and the blood is at minimum. The author obviously is trying to keep the book kid friendly which is good. The storyline is overall pretty good and the art work is great. It is a very original book and has good characters and I look forward to the next one and think my sister will enjoy book two.

    Not your average elf, but moments before Emily's mother was save

    Not your average elf, but moments before Emily's mother was saved, one of the elves' amulets went haywire and the elf is erotically
    gigantic, but it's my first sequel to the Amulet series that I read in 2012 after receiving my own copy of the first one (to see more details,
    look in customer reviews for books 1 and 3 of the series) yes these elves are the same ordinary size (not enlarged like one of them) as
    those from the Hobbit and Fellowship of the Ring (the last two installments to Lord of the Rings weren't owned so I either have to wait
    another 20 years for them or pass altogether) and the Inheritance Cycle series (finished reading the Inheritance Cycle series in the
    last moments of the 2011 year, but started reading the first one in 2007 which is a year after the movie's release, or wasn't that the
    same year for both the book and movie I forget but the Inheritance Cycle series didn't resume until late Fall 2011).

    Although there was one elf that is regularly sized as the elves in this book but this one is from a beloved Christmas movie known as Elf
     and we all know that X-Mas Elves are small, but this elf is just a human who is adopted by one of the holiday elves and for sure, the
    elves in this book don't live in a hollowed tree like a brand mascot for artificially preserved treats, don't work at Santa's workshop and
    never eat Spaghetti with Maple Syrup (one of the elves in this book cannot eat at all because his amulet is what keeps him alive, you'll
    see why when you continue reading this series). and as You Tube always says: What does the Fox Say? the answer to that question is
    that there's a talking fox in this book, as for the realistic answer foxes are a part of the canine family so they either bark or howl, or both.
