Emily has more enemies there than she realizes -- and it'll take everything she's got to get herself and her friends out of the city alive.





My Review

As I mentioned in my last review of the first three books, with each book the plot just keeps on getting better and better. In this sixth book, you are fully immersed in this magical world of elves and amulets. We follow Emily, Navin, Prince Trellis, and their friends to the land of Lucien to see what awaits them there. I was engaged the whole time while reading this graphic novel and I could not put it down. I wanted to know what would happen next! There was never a dull moment. The action and excitement just went on and on. I love where the plot seems to be headed. With each book the storyline grows darker and more beautifully intricate. Let's not forget to mention how lovely the pictures are. They add so much to the book because they are very well detailed and colorful. Unfortunately the eARC I acquired from Netgalley was not all fully in color, but I am definitely going to purchase a physical copy so I can admire all the great artwork in this book.

Navin is finally taking charge in this book. I like how his character developed from the other novels into a leader. I knew he had it in him and he is still one of my favorite characters. This book also allows us to get more background stories on a few of the characters which were both interesting and tragic. Some of the characters who played big roles in the first books are left behind and we meet some new characters and revisit some old. I am really excited and I cannot wait until the next book is published because I can see the author is gearing up for some big events. You must give these books a try if you enjoy magic, fantasy, adventure, beautifully drawn pictures, or all of the above.
