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.

The illustrations in the are great. The reader is sucked into the magical world and carried away with the main characters as they discover new obstacles and try to save their mom. The words are easy to understand and bring lots of voice to the characters. The end has a resolution but leaves the reader wanting to know what happens in the next book. I think this book would be great for students that like graphic novels or for students that like adventure/fantasy. ( )

After tragedy strikes their family, Emily, Navin, and their mother move to a new house in a new town. The house is super creepy and old. Emily finds a necklace with a mysterious amulet attached and puts it on. Strange things start happening, and Emily and Navin soon realize that the amulet holds a lot more power than they realized. When their mother is kidnapped by a creepy creature, Emily and Navin are hurtled into a mysterious land where they learn some secrets about their family history and race to save their mother from evil.

Amulet is a beautifully done graphic novel with fast-paced action. Kids grades 3-8 will enjoy the series. -EC ( )

I like it for kids, but the writing is maybe a little too young for me. It's a good one to recommend, but I don't think I'll want to read the rest of them (even though it goes so fast, you can almost read all the way through in half an hour).

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.
