Amulet 3 : The Cloud Searchers
by Kibuishi, Kazu






Kazu Kibuishi's #1 New York Times bestselling graphic novel series continues!



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.





Kazu Kibuishi is the Eisner-nominated creator of the #1 New York Times bestselling Amulet series, and of a collection of his popular webcomic, COPPER. He is also the cover illustrator of the 15th anniversary paperback editions of the Harry Potter series. He lives in Seattle, Washington, with his family. Visit him online at www.boltcity.com.





This third book in Kibuishi's fantasy-epic Amulet graphic-novel series has the gaggle of heroes led by young Emily, the requisite prophecy fulfiller with unharnessed powers, searching for a fabled city in the clouds while dodging capture by evil elf overlords. Star Wars and Tolkien continue to loom large as influences, and the cinematically grand visuals of otherworldly scenery continue to be one of the series' deftest draws. But plenty of action and complex characters (including a few who were bad guys not too long ago) will also satisfy. The series looks poised to settle into a nice long Bone-like run.

In this third installment of the Amulet series, Kibuishi maintains the lightning pace that propelled the previous two volumes. Now aligned with Leon Redbeard, Nevin and Emily find themselves confronted with a new nemesis: an assassin hired by the Elf King, one who seeks to destroy Emily, her crew and, ultimately, the Elf Prince himself. Together, the crew sets off for the mythical city of Cielis in hopes of finding the Guardian Council and unearthing more answers to Emily's true purpose as a stonekeeper. Followed by the assassin, the crew faces perilous skyward obstacles in a race against the clock. Throughout the series as a whole, the author has never watered down difficult moments-characters die, tragic accidents happen-and that tone continues to resonate. He excels at his action sequences: largely worldless but chock-full of edge-of-your-seat momentum. A richly drawn graphic-fantasy series following in the footsteps of Bone and a must for all fantasy fans. Anticipate readers clamoring for the next episode.
