Amulet: Book Five: Prince of the Elves

by Kazu Kibuishi, 199 pages

Max's backstory is revealed, shedding much light on his actions in the present, as Trellis and Emily slip in and out of the past in their struggle to understand the Voice and how to right their world.

Ah, now I have more sympathy for Max.  And it's good to see Trellis and Emily overcoming their original antipathy and contrasting mindsets in their efforts to fight a common enemy, whatever its true nature.  Kibuishi has created an involving world and story, here, and I just wish we didn't have to read it in pieces, as I'm always wanting the next one.
