Rating: 5/5 stars
I got a copy of this book to review through NetGalley. I feel like I have waiting for the 6th book in the Amulet series to release for eons (okay only two years…but it feels like forever). It was definitely worth the wait.
The story really starts to come to a head as our characters work with the Rebels to face off against the elf king and Max. However, even Max has come to realize that the Voice from the Amulets has it’s own agenda. Max is determined to get all the Amulet bearers together and confront the Voice.
This was a wonderful continuation of the Amulet series. I reviewed this in eGalley format and only the first quarter or so of the color was done on the illustration, however the coloring that was done was awesome. The illustration of this book was just as beautiful as the previous books.
There are plenty of battles, giant suits of mechanical armor, steampunk inventions, and magical amulets. Characters that have been absent are back in the story. It was great to see all of our characters back together again.
Emily and Navin have both grown into powers to be reckoned with. Trellis is also in the story some but I wish we had seen more of him. I will be honest, it took me a bit to place everyone because at this point there are a ton of characters and the story is pretty huge.
Overall I really really love this series and this book continues it in a way that should please the fans of this series. Highly recommended to those who love fantasy. This is spectacular fantasy story with steampunk and sci-fi elements and absolutely stunning illustration.
