As much as I love the Amulet series, my affection pales in comparison to my fourth grade readers. Never has their been a series that they love as much as they love Amulet. Both boy and girl readers are captivated by the work of Kazu Kibuishi.I have enjoyed all of the books in the Amulet series, with the first book being my favorite. In my opinion Kazu takes it to the next level with book four. The plot is well developed, the characters are taken to a deeper level, the architecture in Cielis is a [...]
me and my friends during a test:3.5 stars • trust your gut instinctsthe plot is finally taking us to the edge! although I'm still mystified on who's working for who and what the hell the elf king's real motives are, I'm so happy to see emily finally embracing the amulet's power and taking full responsibility of setting things back to normal. the more the characters, the merrier the adventure is. I love the forming bond between our characters as well as the sudden appearances of both allies and [...]
It keeps getting better and better. I enjoyed book 4 more than the previous ones. The art, Fabulous as always; and I still believe that the mom adds nothing to the series she needs to leave; other than that brilliant. Can't wait to see what will happen next.
The art in this series is SO stunning. I actually can't even deal with it.
This series keeps getting better and better here. The Lost city of Cialis is not he safe haven we were hoping for. There are zombies in this one and the whole city is being jailed - talk about big brother. We meet another stone keeper, several actually. Miskit and the other robot come back into the story.Emily is put through a trial she isn't really interested in. She is trying to figure out how to be helpful and so far she simply has more questions.The art continues to be fantastic. I enjoy thi [...]
2.5 starsQuite predictable and cheesy, but still a fun enough read. The artwork, the world and the secondary characters were as great as usual. Still didn't like Emily much, she was so bland and vanilla and always had the same attitude and facial expressions, not to mention the same power struggle/amulet issues as the previous three volumes. She was just dull and stagnant, her dialogue was blah and her actions were generic. The story would have been much better if one of the secondary characters [...]
Definitely my favorite of the series so far.
Emily and her friends find themselves in a new, strange land--the city of Cieles. It's a city rife with mystery. It's got the trope-y rulers who have mysteriously changed their ways for the worse. But it's also got some sort of disease or virus that's causing the citizens to trust no one. And then it's got these powerful people that seem to be controlled as if they're the puppets of some evil mastermind.It all sounds great, but unfortunately it just comes off as mysterious for no reason. The sto [...]
GOD! This series is getting better and better, especially the artworks! Kazu Kibuishi is undoubtedly a very talented person. He not only came up with a great fantasy fiction but also made the read more enjoyable for the readers with his breathtaking illustrations! I have even used those on my phone screen! :')And I am sooooooo happy that Miskit and Cogsley are okay! yeppiee! ^_^
I still love the art work so much and the story is progressing nicely. I will get Volume 5 soon. I can only recommend this graphic novel series.
Wasn't sure how this one was going to go but then it got a little THG up in here and things got awesome! Another fantastic installment in this adventure packed series :)
Wasn't as good as the others, but still AMAZING!
Obecanja. Izdaje. Nada. Ocaj. Ali nikada predaja.I like it :)
Emily continues to look for allies and travels to Cielis only to find there's something strange going on in the city. Separated from her friends, she has to fight for a position on the Guardian Council and is transferred to the Void where she combats with other Stonekeepers to survive (think the Hunger Games in outer space) or be turned to stone.The book is as gorgeous as ever, there are illustrations of locations and cities that take your breath away, but there's also an scarier element to this [...]
Back to the usual standard, thank goodness! There was some great new twists in this one, and I loved learning more of the origins of the stonekeepers and their council. The art style blew me away again - there were a lot more double-paged, full-colour scenes than usual and bloody hell were they good or were they good. I honestly would hang those pictures in my room, there are that stunning. Cannot wait for the next volume now. I'm powering through this series much more easily than I anticipated. [...]
WHATTTT!!! I devour THIS BOOK!! Fear, deceit, control and WHAT!! Kill like The Hunger Games!! I said it KILL ok well turn them into STONE but shoot it's still no life in the body. What ppl will do to get the Stone and control the Council. Hmmm Anything!! Yep that sums it for me. Sad I have to wait for the next one. For the last 2 daysI'm calling libraries like I lost my little marbles anyway it will be here when I get back.
Good installment. Interesting concept with the cloud city.
this one was really good.
Did not see that coming!

This series gets better with each volume. I think it's a great read for anybody, especially people around my age and who love fantasy! I cannot recommend this series enough!
My star rating:Plot: 4/5 Pacing: 5/5 Characters: 4/5World: 4/5Romance: N/AArtwork: 5/5 Enjoyment level: 4/5 stars
WOW, when I said to myself "That Max seems shifty and power-hungry" I WAS NOT WRONG. These are beautifully drawn, I'm still very curious about the fate of this world (and is this book saying that they're in space?) I'm more interested in the elvish court than I am most other things, the memory gaps are VERY WORRYING, prophecies that put children in charge of armies are bunk, and I'm still not super drawn to stories whose thesis statement seems to be "everyone will fail/betray you".Points to mom [...]
More new characters and challenges awaited our beloved amulet gang in this story. As always, it was a bit predictable but with some twists I did not see coming at all. The artwork is amazing, and I actually learned the creator of Amulet also illustrated the covers of the 15th anniversary paperback editions of Harry Potter which explains why I love the artwork so much. On to book five soon
Finally, a much better and more fulfilling addition to the series. Much of the previously awkward dialogue and the flaws that kept me from rating the previous novels higher has been smoothed over here to allow for a more polished work of manga. It does help the cause of these books when I can read them in thirty minutes (I know this for a fact because I finished one last night during my thirty minute break). So, perhaps one of the reasons for my disappointment in the past was the sense of awkwar [...]
The fourth book in the Amulet series was just as enthralling as the previous three. In this installment, the group makes new friends, finds new enemies, and faces betrayal and loss.I'm still really enjoying the artwork in these books, the pictures are so expressive. As a person who is fairly new to the graphic novel genre, I am not used to having a picture tell so much of the story without relying on words.This volume did not have as big of a cliffhanger as the last one, but you'll still be eage [...]
This series keeps throwing me these little pieces of information throughout the novels' and by the end the picture is huge and overwhelming. Then I finish the next book and the picture is even more overwhelming.I did feel like all I found out in this book was more information. I feel like it's ultimately just setting up for the next few books. I was getting quite excited for the end, and then the author threw me another plot twist and all my hopes were dashed. Though this book was grand, it was [...]
December 2nd, 2014 NOTEThis series is really popular at the school I'm volunteering at for the library. We were wondering what had happened to all the Amulet books so when this one came back (before the first 2 volumes) I read this in case I could not find this one later. Then again that was before I realized it was only the 4th volume in the series lmao. Very cute and whimsical read for sure.
