[Graphic Novel Review] The Cloud Searchers (Amulet #3) by Kazu Kibuishi

Graphic Novel Review of The Cloud Searchers (Amulet #3) by Kazu Kibuishi

The Cloud Searchers by Kazu Kibuishi is book number three in the Amulet series. Like the previous two, I absolutely adored this.

Let's dive in!

The Cloud Searchers (Amulet #3) by Kazu Kibuishi

Emily, Navin, and their crew of resistance fighters charter an airship and set off in search of the lost city of Cielis. There they hope to find help from the Guardian Council's powerful Stonekeepers. It's a mission that Alledia's survival depends on, and time is running out--Emily's got to find Cielis before the Elf King finds her.

My thoughts:
This series continues to impress me!

In this book, we continue to see Emily learning more about her power and how to control it. I really liked that when we see her training with Leon Redbeard, he says, "Do you remember what you learned at Demon's Head? The ability to hold someone without destroying it. Now you will need to take it a step further." This helped to both slowly guide her training as well as giving the readers a little refresher. Wonderfully done!

The artwork is so stunning; I love the style so much. I mean, just look at the color palette here:

Here is another example of the amazing artwork:

I continued to enjoy most of the cast of characters, especially the new ones that we got to meet in this book! Per usual, I really loved Leon Redbeard's levelheadedness.

My only complaint about is about the mother. It seemed to me that in this book, the mothers character just isn't consistent. One second she's listening and being supportive but the next she's not listening and causing issues. Rather than being a fully developed character, it's like she's just written in to certain scenes to help the story along.

Luckily, that didn't take away from my overall thoughts about the book! I would still highly recommend this series, beginning with book one of course. As soon as I finish typing this, I am going to request book four from my local library!

Thanks for reading!
