THE ENEMY GROWS STRONGER…
Emily survived the chaos of the Guardian Academy, but Max Griffin has stolen the Mother Stone. With it, the Elf King forges new Amulets that will give him the power to invade and destroy the nation of Windsor. Emily and her friends lead the soldiers of the Cielis Guard in a fight to stop him, but Max stands in their way. And when she seeks information from the Voice of her Amulet, she discovers that the Voice is much more sinister than she ever could have imagined.
I loved book five just as much as I liked the last volumes. This book picks up right after the fourth and provides a lot of back story. This back story covers Max, a little on what started this big war, and a little more on the Amulets. I felt like this book centered more around Max and his back story, but I didn’t really mind that. Kibuishi’s artwork continues to amaze me, it’s just so beautiful. He does an amazing job of setting the perfect scene for the tone of the story, and I absolutely love all of the colors. Again, I would definitely recommend it.
