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.

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.

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.

This book was very fun to read I like the art and the story. I certainly liked the characters, they reminded meof characters in the book Marked by P.C. Cast.

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.

Navin and Emily are back with all their old friends, and some new ones, for another adventure in the AMULET series. Picking up where we last left our heroes, we find them inside their great-grandfather's traveling house searching for an antidote for their poisoned mother. When they reach the city of Kanal is when things start to look hopeful. That is until the elf prince and his army show up. The elf prince is determined to steal Emily's amulet and use its power. Now, Emily must learn to accept her role as a stonekeeper and save the day. This graphic novel is a very exciting sequel. Emily really comes out of her shell in this book and becomes a strong character. Boys and girls alike will love seeing Emily and Navin stand up for themselves and watching Emily take charge of the amulet's powers. I can't wait to see what's next for Emily and her family. Hopefully, we'll see the next volume in the series soon!
