Not my favourite in the series, but still so good! I can't wait for the final volume.

3.75 The story felt a little disjointed, but that might be a result of having such a long period of time between reading the last two books. The artwork is fantastic as usual and there are some nice messages throughout the story.

Long awaited!! This was so full of surprises and reconnection with characters. Definitely a set up for the final volume, but a great one nonetheless.

I really like what the author did in this book. I was a little confused after the last one, but I felt this one brought the plot back on track. There may be a few lose ends, buts that’s what having books in a series is for!

I'm so disappointed. After the last book I was so excited for this book, and I was so let down? I waited so long for this book and I felt like it was a filler and only like 50 pages were relevant. Definitely my least favourite book in the series. I feel like Navin's sections were so boring and like 90% of the book was Navin so...
Idk, I waited a long time for this book and I'm disappointed in the outcome.

Oh boy! So many ‘what!?’ moments. The ending isn’t as much of a cliffhanger as the previous book, but it still makes me want to read the last book right now!!!

Amulet Book #8: Supernova by Kazu Kibuishi has #197 pages.

In this book, the elf race are looking like they are going to attack the city, so the generals of the city tell everyone to evacuate the city. The elf king plans a stealth attack on the city, but the elf king’s orders was for all the troops to simply surrender. For the capture of the elf troops, the city throws a big celebration/party for the whole entire city; including the elf stone keeper (he turned to the good side, because he wants

How do I describe this book? I had really high expectations after Firelight, and it . . . kind of fell short? It was still a good book, but some things just didn’t work for me.

- Trellis. Come on guys, this one was a given. It was especially great when I opened the book and the first section was a two-page spread of Trellis. That made my fangirl heart happy.
- The Encounter With Emily. The artwork was just so amazing and the emotions were so high...... <3

This is the eighth volume in the Amulet graphic novel series. The illustration remains amazing and the story makes some good progress too. I continue to be impressed with how well done this graphic novel series is.

In this volume Emily struggles to gain control of her Amulet and escape the Void. Meanwhile Trellis is trying to take his place as rightful king of the Elves. Navin goes to Lighthouse One and leaves on a mission to help protect the worlds against the Shadow forces.

Last week my son bought Supernova at his school's Scholastic book fair. I don't think I've ever seen him so excited to buy a new book. He's read each book of the Amulet series at least ten times.

It's been ten years since the first Amulet book, The Stonekeeper, was released and this newest release, Supernova, is an epic journey into space and a new planet called Typhon. This story has a fast-moving plot with reveals and surprises. There is a big focus on self-acceptance, personal growth, fear, co

My daughter and I have read all of these. I think the series starts off very strong, and has some really powerful parts, but it’s always been a tad off. I dislike how the mother is portrayed in the book, and while I like books with strong young protagonists, in this book, the children are constantly either more powerful than everyone else (the main girl, Emily), or being told several times per book that they are natural leaders (her brother). (Which makes no sense, because he’s not shown leading ...more

I placed my Scholastic book order. As I did, I spotted this. I had given up hope of this series continuing. I read this two and a half years ago. I enjoyed the series, but admittedly, I have forgotten the story. I suppose that is why I didn't care for this book as much as I probably would have if I read it with the others.

The characters seemed fractured. I struggled to keep up with the scenes, who was who, and what was going on. On top of all that, I recall stunning images from this series. I th

I blew through all 8 volumes in about two weeks. I liked Amulet more throughout those first 5 installments, when it was a fantasy/steampunk saga that slowly unraveled a richer and more complex world. #6, #7, and #8 have gone full high-tech space opera and it's hard not to feel character development being sacrificed for greater spectacle. Half-baked subplots and world building inconsistencies have also piled up. If #9 wasn't the conclusion I'd probably not have kept reading, but it's easier to fo ...more

Amulet Vol. 8: Team Exposition!

So sad to see a series that started off with such a bang limp toward the end so haphazardly. Was anyone else surprised that we waited 8 volumes to see the Elf King unmasked only for it to happen as an afterthought in a couple of panels? A lot of the scenes, particularly involving Emily, in this volume felt like that to me, as if the author realized there were some plot lines he needed to get tied up. Unfortunately Emily's character was reduced to rushing from here

Well, if I'm being honest, I don't believe I could write a coherent summary of this series. I sometimes feel like I'm following along with a movie that I've half-napped through; everything connects, but some of it is in pure dream logic. There's so much happening that, while I get the gist, my brain is undoubtedly missing important details. Thankfully, my eyes keep catching the gorgeous artwork.

I quite liked the callback to the first book in this volume, and I'm looking forward to seeing how ev

At this point I am simply confused.
Can someone please explain to me what is happening?
How did we end up in space? and for what reason? why do we need those trees again?
Like in the last few issues Navins storyline is so uninteresting to me I just dont see the point.
This is so convoluted I dont even know anymore why there is a war and whom we are fighting.
This series started out really strong and I loved it!
It has been going downhill for a while now.
Weve been told how horrible, dangerous and evil

While Navin joins his friends and new allies aboard Lighthouse One to face the darkness spreading across multiple planets, Emily must come face to face with the Voice once again to free herself from the void and join her family before the final battle can be waged. Kibuishi continues this invigorating series with more colour, charm and twists that will have readers holding their breath with awe and shock. Emily is going to have to face strangers that may hold deeper bonds with her than she could ...more

I have been waiting 2 years for this book - and it was worth the wait! As usual, Kibuishi has produced some fantastic illustrations and complex plot line to satisfy young and old readers. My only complaint with Kibuishi's writing is that plot points sometimes come too quickly, or you need to have held on to previous knowledge in other books to understand who's who. Clearly the kids don't have a problem with this, as these books are consistently checked out. Only one book is left in this series - ...more

My students and I have waited a long time for this book! I’ll say that it met (but did not exceed) my expectations. I felt as though there were some gaps of information that could have been filled in better. And now we have even more characters to keep track of. It definitely sets things up for an exciting conclusion, and I honestly don’t know how they’re going to wrap everything up in just one more book. Looks like the wait is on to find out!
