[Graphic Novel Review] The Stonekeeper's Curse (Amulet #2) by Kazu Kibuishi

Graphic Novel Review of The Stonekeeper's Curse by Kazu Kibuishi

The Stonekeeper's Curse by Kazu Kibuishi is the second book in the Amulet series. Just like the first book, I absolutely loved this one!

Click here if you missed my review of Amulet #1: The Stonekeeper.

The Stonekeeper's Curse (Amulet #2) by Kazu Kibuishi

In this thrilling sequel to AMULET #1: THE STONEKEEPER, Emily and her brother Navin head for Kanalis, a beautiful and mysterious city of waterfalls, where they hope to find the antidote for the poison that felled their mother. That cure lies in the eggs of a giant serpent atop Demon's Head Mountain, but the kids' archenemy, Trellis, is headed for the peak, too. A battle that will engulf all of Kanalis is looming. It's up to Em to triumph over evil while controlling the amulet's power . . . without losing herself! 

My thoughts:
This one is going to be short and sweet, as I don't want to give too much away!

In this book, Emily and Navin are starting to adjust to their new lives post-Amulet find. In books like this, I get really nervous that the character with new found power will just automatically know exactly how to use it. So I was relieved when we saw Emily learning slowly with guidance from others. Sure, some was a bit too easy, but for a middle grade book, it worked. I was also so excited that we got to learn more about the backstory of the Amulet's power. 

The artwork in this book was exactly like the artwork in the first, which was a relief to me. I can't stand when the artwork in a series changes with each book. The artwork here is just so stunning! Check out this page:

My final thoughts:
Just like Amulet Book 1, I enjoyed every second of this read! I can't wait to jump into Book 3! 

Thanks for reading!
