the last council
amulet series #4
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....
