An impossible journey with danger at every turn…
Emily, Navin, and their crew of resistance fighters charter an airship and set off in search of the lost city of Cielis. There they hope to find help from the Guardian Council’s powerful Stonekeepers. It’s a mission that Alledia’s survival depends on, and time is running out–Emily’s got to find Cielis before the Elf King finds her.
It’s been about a year since I read Amulet #2, so I definitely had a few gaps in my memory of this world. I enjoyed this installment. We learn more about the stones and what they can do, as well as new stonekeeper lore. There’s some good character development in this book, but I didn’t think it had as much action as the previous one.
