Amulet’s story is about a young girl named Emily (“Em”) and her younger brother, Navin. Two years after Emily’s father dies in a car accident, she moves with her mother, Karen, and Navin to a house that has been in the family for years. The locals believe that the house is haunted, yet Karen chooses to ignore the rumors. And soon, the family discovers a small door in the basement of the house leading to an alternate version of earth known as “Alledia”.
Emily has to decide if she wants to be the new stonekeeper after her great-grandfather passes away, and she agrees to take on her new responsibility.
I found this story to be an overall exciting and exhilarating adventure, And I’m really interested to find out more about this world.
I haven’t been able to focus on any new books this week while waiting for The Raven King, so I’m glad that I took a leap and picked this up because the artwork within was great with relatable interactions between the mother and daughter.
