Start your review of Firelight (Amulet, #7)
Wow! This series is so great. It is fun and exciting. The artwork is amazing and the imagination to set up the world is boundless. This book takes us underwater where memories are stored. The story is pretty much a cliff hanger to beat all cliff hangers. The story moves at a quick pace and covers a lot of ground.

I'm almost caught up to what is being published now which means I am going to have to wait for #9 just like everyone else. That is a bummer. It's so good and I want to know how it ends.

Oh my, Emily! This series always catches me off guard. I don't expect much and then it grabs at my heartstrings. I love the heart behind this story and can't wait for more! ...more

I think what I love most about this series besides the plot in general and the characters of course is the amazing coloring that is done by Jason Caffoe. Holy crap! He is amazing, and I want to find more stuff he's contributed on if he has any. Definitely recommend this graphic novel series to everyone! ...more

I can confidently say that if I was able to read this installment right after the sixth one then I would've given this 4 stars. However, because it's been awhile since I read it, I found it really hard to jump into the series again. I found it quite confusing at first as I tried to remember all the characters and plotlines. That being said, once I mostly figured out what was going on, I really enjoyed it! The art was beautiful as always and I like where the story is going :)

Read on date of publication. Things are slowly getting more interesting. I can see there being at least two more instalments.
Zombieslayer/Alienhunter {comatose with common sense}
"You think we will become monsters."
"History teaches us that you will both lose this battle."

Emily, Trellis and Vigo are off in search of Algos Island, the lair of all memories.
Warned of their impending battle against the Voice, the evil force inside the Stones by their adversary Max, the three Stonekeepers must break the hold the Stones have on their memories.

But this task comes at a heavy price.
To get their memories back, Emily and Trellis will have to accompany an old foe into dark depths.

For a while, especially book 5 and 6, the storyline was starting to get confusing. There were so many things going on in each book in this series that i was having a hard time catching up. It was fast-paced but everything was happening all at once that i, as a reader, started losing track of all the important scenes that happened and the characters that we were introduced to throughout the series.
But anyway, this book felt less confusing and things are making a bit more sense. I enjoyed it a lot

This graphic novel is a quick, fun read targeted at middle grade readers. In this installment, Emily and her sidekicks make it to Algos Island. Why are they there? Well, to access lost memories so they can understand the events of Trellis's childhood, and what happened between him and his father, of course. Things do not go smoothly, but then when do they ever in a quest?

Emily is center stage in volume, and could it really be true that the Amulet chose her for her weaknesses rather than her stre

Wow! Crazy things happening. This is the seventh book in the series so I can't discuss too much. I read book 6 right when it came out so I kind of forgot what happened at the end so jumping back into this one was a tad confusing.

Emily, Navin and Mom have been separated on purpose. They all have a group and a goal in mind. In this book we see what each has been up to and what the end game is. It's up to Emily. Will the world that she has been trying to fight for be destroyed by her own hands or

It was the best Amulet ever!!!!!!If you read them that is proof that all Amulet books are
A)The best graphic novels of all time (along with Smile and Sisters)
B)Getting better and better as you read them.
It was easy for me to figure out that Emily's weakness was that her father had died.She was so sad looking that I bet she would do anything to get him back.All she really wanted when she arrived was to get her family back together.But I think she's finally excepted that she's going to have to do s

7th book of the series and it still hasn't let me down. I completely flew through this! I was sucked in the artwork. I mean, look:


I loved how just when you thought this couldn't get any better, you were slammed in the face with a plot twist.


This was such a fun read! If you haven't read this series yet, I don't know what you're waiting for. Just, go for it. It doesn't even matter you're age; you'll still love it.

I loved the first 6 books in this series but I don't think this one was as good. I don't know if I missed something in the previous books, but it felt like almost too much stuff happened in this book. The author set up the storyline in a way that just seems like there isn't going to be any way out of the problem that the book ended on. Of course, there is probably going to be some over complicated plan to save everyone in the next book. I DO like that this series kills off characters. It

This is the seventh book in the Amulet series and it feels like it has been taking absolutely forever for these to release. It’s been pretty much two years between each book for the last couple books in this series. That being said this was an incredible addition to the Firelight series. Last I read Kibuishi has ten books planned for this series. This is a series that both me and my nine year old son adore; so it’s a fantasy graphic novel series that is great for middle grade and older readers.

This is my favorite so far in the Amulet series. The adventure and excitement continue, while the back story continues to develop. Some of my questions have been answered, but boy does it end in a cliff hanger. I'm excited that the next book should be coming out this month. ...more
