Amulet: The Last Council by Kazu Kibuishi
Published by Graphix (An Imprint of Scholastic Press)
Pages: 224
Publishers Summmary:

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.

Amulet is a series I’m not going to attempt to sum up. Being that I’ve only read this most recent in the series it’s hard to summarize without giving away too much of the story. Let me just say that I was impressed. Not only was the story compelling, but the graphics & illustrations were astonishing. Take a look at the interior spread provided by the publisher:

Isn’t it gorgeous? It’s a bit of a mix between a strictly comic book style and manga which blends to make a very stunning story. Not only does it pop while reading it, its also enjoyable from a reading stand point. Teenagers and tweens will especially appreciate the fast paced story and creative characters. I was incredibly impressed to discover this fantastic new world to explore and can’t wait to read more of the Amulet series as soon as possible!

The1stdaughter Recommends: Ages 10 and up. Enter a creative new world with a cast of characters that come to life through the amazing storytelling of Kazu Kibuishi. Perfect for tweens and up!

    I haven’t read this series yet but it’s REALLY popular at my son’s school and the first volume won a Washington State children’s book award (Young Reader’s Choice) that the kids vote on. I need to read the series soon, I guess! Maybe Z is ready to read them with me. 🙂

    You write very well. You need a writer or scholar. Thank you.
