In the third installment of the thrilling Amulet series, Emily, Navin, and their crew of resistance fighters charter an airship and set off in search of the lost city of Cielis, which is believed to be located on an island high above the clouds. The mysterious Leon Redbeard is their guide, and there's a surprising new addition to the crew: the Elf King's son, Trellis. But is he ally or enemy? And will Emily ever be able to trust the voice of the Amulet?

A little slower than its predecessors, The Cloud Searchers takes us to the skies on the hunt for a city that is thought to have been decimated.  Myths say that the Council took the city to the clouds to protect and rebuild.

Even though there was a lot going on, I felt like nothing happened.  How does that make sense?  I don't know.  But surprisingly, Luger is becoming one of my favorite characters.  He kind of reminds me of Uncle Iroh in Avatar: The Last Airbender.
