I enjoyed this second book in the Amulet series. Emily is still trying to control the powers of the Amulet, which is a hard thing to do and if she doesn't it could corrupt her.

The gang decide to go to the city of Kanalis to get more help for their mom who is dying from poison. I really love the walking house, I want one :-)


The city is full of animal people which is very cool, but they are suffering under some kind of curse but they are fine. Emily and the gang find another friend that goes by

I'll admit, I wasn't a huge fan of the first volume. But I wanted to give the series another try, so I checked this out from the library. And I was much more impressed with this volume.

The art, same as the first volume, is beautiful. Kibuishi has an amazing style that is whimsical and fantastic. He also creates great characters. Cogsley and Miskit are two super cool sidekicks. And the walking house! I want one.

The story definitely picks up in this volume. You get more conflict, some bac
Not as good as the first one, it was pretty much the same story line with Emily yet again trying to save her mum and her struggling with her amulet powers.

I didn't like that apart from Emily and her mum there were no other female characters, Emily was always surrounded by guys.

The artwork was on point though, it was the most enjoyable aspect. I especially loved the pages where there was just one large panel of some kind of scenery, they were beautifully drawn.

The elves are getting close and the action ramps up as Emily and Navin race to find a cure for the poison that is killing their mom. Emily must learn to control the stone as it fights to try and take control of her. This was even better than the first volume!

This installment was definitely a step-up from the first! Excited to see more of this world and uncover more of its secrets. And the art is absolutely fantastic!

Side note: For Christmas, I'd like a house that walks, kthxbye.

These books are so quick to get through and a lot of fun. The story is certainly middle grade and therefore there's not a lot of terribly dark moments or any vile language, it's PG, but the dark elves are still scary bad guys!

Kazu Kibuishi is a great image maker. The images within the book really do bring the story truly to life and the colours and images chosen for each panel are beautiful and well thought out. The tonal, chalky colours give such a serene sense of wonder on some idyllic scenes

Okay this was really good. It was a big step up from the first one and I really enjoyed this!! I'm so excited to get into the second one. The plot got a lot more complex, I really like the characters and the art is stunning. So glad I decided to continue with this series.

This one was even better then the first one!!!
I really love this world! The fantasy of this series is phenomenon!!!
The characters are everything!!!
I really like where the story is going!
I need to read volume 3!!!
I absolutely loved this!

The plot was definitely more developed in this book. And it was so action-packed. I was on the edge of my feet several times. Frankly, I'm really surprised I loved this so much, considering most of the graphic novels I've read have just been... okay. This could be a strong rival to Fairy Tail, Vol. 01, and I love me some FT.

We learned some new things in this volume. Apparently, there are multiple Stonekeepers. I was getting the vibe that Em was the whole "Savior of the Wo

Just as good as the first. The story continues flawlessly, picking up right where we left off. And once again, getting to the action takes absolutely no time.

I took much more notice this time of the frames that took up two entire pages. They always portray large portions of the landscape and whatever building or town that's being highlighted. These large drawings are always gorgeous.

This time the amulet tries even harder to take control of Emily. Luckily, she's super strong and is fighting it w

An even more solid follow up to the first book.

The Stonekeeper's Curse finds Emily and company on the run for a cure for her mother, while danger is close by, very, very close. As with the last time, this volume is fast paced, packs a lot of action and delivers good characterization. I liked the fact that the worldbuilding continues in this one, with new settings and fantastical beings. It's also a shade darker, which I think will be the course of the series. The most interesting new development

(Warning: spoilers for Amulet, Vol. 1!) When Emily and Naven's mother is poisoned, they set out on a journey to Kanalis to find a cure. I grew fond of this new setting, and the creatures that lived there. This was essentially the same plot line as the first book, but I liked it a lot more. There were some good topics in the book that the author touched on, which I appreciated.

During Amulet, Vol. 2, Emily deals with trying to keep her amulet from getting too much power and overtaking her. I like

In the first book, I thought that it was pretty cool and whimsical and wondered if Kibuishi could keep up with it since it seemed like he poured every ounce of amazing creativeness he has in the first volume. So when I picked up the second book, I was amazed that it has actually gone better than the first one. Kibuishi, as I look at him now, has fantastic whimsical imagination that could drive children, teens and adults alike hooked in the world he created.

This second volume picked up right wher

Amulet book 2 was a really good book.It was shocking that the stone wanted to take over Emily's body it was the power of the stone. But Emily refuses to let it take her over; she fights though. All the drama between the stone and the elves. But I really like this book and very excited to read book 3.

Wow just wow!!! I never thought I would like this, it was gamble for me. Since the only graphic novel I read was Saga (and it's under the "adult" category) and this one is more on the "kids" side, I thought I wouldn't like it but I was so wrong. This second installment was EPIC!!!

Em is on a journey to finding a cure for her mother and along the way she met a vital character, Leon. Who proved to be a person (or animal/fox) of importance for her to control the stone's power. And Navin oh Navin, I

WOAH! What an epic sequel!
So, in this instalment, we pick up right after the events of the first, so you're immediately sucked back into the world.
The story was a lot more interesting in this instalment and the entire story was so fast-paced and full of adventure. The characters are fun and interesting to learn about and I'm excited to see where the story goes.
The artwork in this series is quite nice and I really enjoy its simplicity. Sometimes in graphic novels, the illustrator tends to overdo
I just didn't feel like the second installment was as fun as the first. It seemed like there was just a lot of crazy things going on and while the art was still fantastic, the plot for me started to feel lacking. Meh.

I love the this second book because now that she knows how to use her amulet she can fight with the elves. And how the evil elves want to kill her but they can't and I love the comics that this book has.
