LOVED this! The beginning is super sad (that's not a spoiler) but the rest is so interesting and different. I loved the characters and how (even though its a graphic novel) each one feels developed. I will definitely keep going with the series! ( )

This was a happy random find at my local library - it is a middle grade graphic novel series about a girls whose family is sucked into another world and now must take on the role of the Stonekeeper, a powerful hero.

This was a beautiful book, the artwork is wonderful for this book and the color schemes add to the emotion of the plot so very well. The characters are easy to follow - Emily is a pre-teen girl who has a lot of angst from her fathers passing, Navin is her brother who is young but strong, and their mother only makes a quick appearance in this installment but she is the reason this all began and they are trying to help her.

This was a fun filled, action-packed adventure fantasy that I think all young readers will enjoy - there is something for everyone.

Very mature problems to deal with, and scary themes possibly. Very creative and I liked the colorful graphics.

This book is about a young girl who has been given power through an amulet that very few are given power from. As the chosen one to wear the amulet she must save her mother who has been kidnapped, her brother who is on this adventure with her, and an odd group of misfits she has teamed up with along the way, to destroy an evil she never existed in a place she never knew was there.

For all its flaws, this is a well-written book. It’s quick-paced and keeps your interest from the first page until the last. You don’t have to worry about young readers getting bored in the middle and not finishing the book.
