prince of the elves

prince of the elves
amulet series #5
kazu kibuishi
graphic novel/fantasy/adventure/ya
published 2012

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. Emily seeks information from the Voice of her Amulet, but instead she discovers the Voice is much more sinister than she ever could have imagined.

Here we are full of history, Trellis's history mostly, but bits of Max's as well although there is still much mystery surrounding him as well.

The war is beginning and the Guardian Council is quite outnumbered.  Emily is getting stronger though and she is done waiting for answers.  She's a great character.  And the ending, although not the end, was great.  I only wish I had started reading this when the series was complete so I didn't have to wait to find out what happens next!
