Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

A war between humans and elves that has been brewing for more than 50 years is coming to the city of Cielis, and Emily, her brother, Navin, and the people and creatures around them must face the past in order to survive the future. Anchored by dazzlingly lush art and a complex, character-laden plot, Kibuishi’s Amulet series remains a must-have for all elementary- and middle-school graphic-novel collections. Devoted fans will appreciate that this volume begins to flesh-out the backstory of two characters while starting to tie together a few of the many plot elements. Grades 4-7. --Snow Wildsmith

Review

"[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

Emily must continue her journey to master her power as a Stone Keeper and save Alledia from the Elf King. But her challenge grown as she now faces a new enemy in Max, the mysterious young Stone Keeper who has aligned himself with the Elf King. And they have the last of the mother stone and together they are creating new allies to destroy all who are in their path. But secrets are revealed...not only about the Elf King, but about the stone itself. And perhaps once more there is hope at defeating the Elf King and restoring balance. But for now Emily and her friends must prepare for battle and hope that they survive.

I've loved the entire series but the story in this one blew me away. Kazu finally answers some of the mysteries that he's been building, such as the voice of the stone and what it really is. But even better than that Kazu continues to build and enrich what we know about the characters lives creating an even more engaging story to pull the reader in. In this book we learn more about Max, the mysterious Stone Keeper from the last volume, and even more about Trellis and the journey that he's on. My one and only regret with this book is that it ended all too quickly.

The artwork in this volume is absolutely phenomenal. Kazu and his team have outdone themselves with this series and in this volume they surpass themselves. Mind you I'm viewing an electronic galley so the final actual print could be even better, but the colors are astounding. They make the book come alive, such as the baren snowy landscape scenes. You would think that these types of scenes would be easy to create, brown/black for the mountain and white for the snow and boom, you're done.

Format: Paperback
Bestselling Author Kazu Kibuishi strikes gold once again in his epic fantasy series with 'AMULET #5:Prince Of The Elves." This captivating, action-packed adventure grabs the reader's attention in the very beginning as it becomes more exciting page-after-page. Emily and her friends are preparing to fight a brutal battle to defeat the Elf King in hope for survival. Many mysteries are solved, including the voice of the Stone as we find out what Max and Trellis are up to. The story is engaging as well as addicting. The colorful illustrations are stunning as they come to life, illuminating the story. A fun-filled, compelling adventure that makes you crave for more from this author. Highly Recommended to all fantasy lovers!

I enjoyed both the artwork and story in this the fifth book of the Amulet series. While it is marketed as a young adult book it is certainly not written in a way that an adult can not enjoy it as well. As always if you are a fan of Kazu's artwork you won't be disappointed. At this point I'm eagerly waiting for the release of the next book in the series.

Amulet deserves high praise. The mark of good children's literature is the ability to weave complex themes into a simple, yet compelling narrative. Greatness is achieved when the writing appeals to adults. Kazu Kibuishi has done masterful work with this entire series. To me, Amulet is almost as good as Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" trilogy. I am hoping when this graphic goodness gets made into a film, they will not ruin this new children's instant classic.

I think that it was well worth buying it. I love comics and I love writing them. it was very interesting and some of the cartoons were pretty cute. I like the pink bunny:)
some parts and people in the book are not what you expect them to be. I think it's worth it.
