the last coucil

the last council
amulet series #4
kazu kibuishi
graphic novel/fantasy/adventure/ya
published 2011

Emily and her friends think they'll find the help they need in Cielis, but something isn't right. Streets that were once busy are deserted, and the townspeople who are left live in crippling fear. Emily is escorted to the Academy where she's expected to compete for a spot on the Guardian Council, the most powerful Stonekeepers. But as the number of competitors gets smaller and smaller, a terrible secret is slowly uncovered--a secret that, if left buried, means certain destruction of everything Emily fights for. 

Nothing is as it seems & nothing is as it should be.

In the last book I was thinking to myself that Emily & Trellis needed to learn to trust each other in order to get what they both want.  This time I was thinking Emily needs to trust others less and herself more.

That's really all I can say about that without giving too much away.

The art is amazing, as usual and the story moves along quickly.  Maybe too quickly in some spots.

Evil, evil, evil everywhere....
