[Graphic Novel Review] The Last Council (Amulet #4) by Kazu Kibuishi

Graphic Novel Review of The Last Council (Amulet #4) by Kazu Kibuishi

The Last Council by Kazu Kibuishi is book number four in the Amulet series. Like the others in this series, I absolutely adored this volume.

Let's dive in!

The Last Council (Amulet #4) by Kazu Kibuishi

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.

My thoughts:
In this volume, things took quite a dark turn!

While we didn’t see Leon specifically training Emily here, she seems to have a better handle on her power. But not only does she had a better control, she also seems more powerful. I’m really looking forward to where this is going!

We got to meet a few new characters in this book. I’m hoping they will stick with the crew and help support Emily as she takes on the next task.

Per usual, Leon was there with his words of wisdom:

I was also really happy to see that the characters continued to support Emily, even after her "failure":

Per usual, I just loved the artwork!

And of course I loved this scene:

My final thoughts:
I can't wait to dive into book 5!

Thanks for reading!


  1. Wow, it seems like you're really enjoying this series. I managed to read the first one last year but never really continued. Maybe I should put some more on reserve at my library (which is actually closed until the 15th due to renovations - which stinks).

    1. I sure am! I actually have the others waiting at the library for me! I've gotta venture out and pick them up today :) Oh darn! Sorry to hear your local library is closed for a bit :(

    2. I have another branch I can go to but it's not as convenient or as easy to reserve things so I guess I can't complain too much.

    3. Ah yeah... I totally get it though. We have two local branches and the one I go to is MUCH more convenient.

  2. Hi!

    This whole series looks fantastic. I really will have to try and get some !

    Happy Monday!

    1. Definitely!! :) I'd love to see what you think about them!
