Amulet, Vol. 6: Escape From Lucien by Kazu Kibuishi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Amulet (Book 6)
Finally book six arrives. It feels like a long wait for this volume and with two years between it would have benefitted from a basic "the story so far" blurb but I settled back into the story fairly quickly. The plot is piquing at this point and we have the first resolution within this intricate quest fantasy. The main characters have developed and progressed so much since we first met them. Kibuishi gives the story real emotion by allowing characters to perish in the act of duty or as inevitable retribution but we also see the return of characters set aside a few books ago which always brings delight when there is a lovable recurring cast. The art, as always with this series, is stunning and almost seems ready for big screen. Great addition to the middle grade quest fantasy series.
