{Synopsis} – 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} – Emily and Navin are making a trip to Kanalis, in the hope and attempt to find a cure for their mother. Their mother was poisoned in the last book and now they are attempting to save her life. There is a lot that is going on in this book.

Both Emily and Navin end up getting separated in an attempt to keep Navin safe. However, once Navin gets to where he is headed, he learns that Emily isn’t safe and he decides to go on his own mission to save her. Many of those around him decide that it is in their best interest to go with him and help him succeed. They do save her, but it comes at a cost for the house in which they are residing.

Emily struggles through most of the book, she is fighting against the amulet. The amulet talks to her and tells her to let it take control and it can help her save herself and those she loves most. She doesn’t want to let that happen and the fight is draining her on so many different levels.

We learned in this book that their biggest enemy is the Elf King and we learned how he’d come about. We learned that one of her best allies is the son of a guard that the Elf King had killed. And we learned a whole lot of other history. We mostly learned that even though things aren’t going as one would like, that Emily and Navin are up to the fight and the challenge needed to protect those around them and those they care deeply about. I look forward to reading the next book in the series very soon.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
