Review: The Cloud Searchers by Kazu Kibiushi

Grade: Great
Series: Amulet Vol. 3
Author: Kazu Kibuishi 


Emily, Navin, and their crew of resistance fighters charter an airship and set off in search of the lost city of Cielis. There they hope to find help from the Guardian Council's powerful Stonekeepers. It's a mission that Alledia's survival depends on, and time is running out--Emily's got to find Cielis before the Elf King finds her.

So, this is quickly becoming one of my favorite series, Graphic Novel or regular Novel. I love this series!! The characters, the plot, and the world especially. This book was a wonderful continuation to the series. It continued to build on the plot, it developed the world a bit more, we also got more background info on some characters. It was all I wanted and need in a continuation of a series.

The plot was just as fast paced as the first two, maybe a bit more. We are going deeper into this story-line so more serious stuff is happening. In my mind, a lot of scenes vital to the story happened in this one. So, this plot was just so good and an amazing read!! I also like how the plot keeps on going along. We are getting to the really good parts of the plot and I can't see what happens in the next one!

I like how we are slowly getting more and more information and depth from these characters and the world. We are learning about some characters past, *cough* the prince *cough*, and the author is just slowly building on the depth of the characters that he established in the first two books. This is just so great to read!! It's making the characters feel more and more real and it's like you are getting to know them so well. Its like friends that you learn more and more about the longer your friendship continues.

Added to the characters is the world. This author basically took his tactic with building depth for the characters and applied it to the world, which is working out great. This author keeps slowly giving the readers more facts about this world. Every now and again Emily and her family will have something about the world explained to them or they will figure it out and thus you as the reader learns it. This is such a great way to write world-building when you are firstly drawing the world. It makes you as the reader feel like you are in the story, because you are learning about the world right along side the characters.

This was an amazing continuation of this series!! It had everything a reader could want in the continuation of a series. The plot kept going forward at a great pace, the characters have so much depth and they keep getting more, and the world is just so wonderfully drawn and explained!

This book got....

Happy reading
