It's okay, but probably ultimately not my cup of tea. I never really got over how they inherited a new house in the first book and barely spent any time there ... so I may not be the target market, as I imagine most readers prefer action to redecorating.

(Note: 5 stars = amazing, wonderful, 4 = very good book, 3 = decent read, 2 = disappointing, 1 = awful, just awful. I'm fairly good at picking for myself so end up with a lot of 4s). ( )

Although Emily and Navin managed to rescue their mother, she is now unconscious and slowly dying of poison. They use Silas's house to travel to the city of Kanalis, where they hope to find medicine that can cure her. Unfortunately, the main ingredient for that medicine is the fruit of the Gadoba tree, which hundreds have died trying to obtain. Meanwhile, Prince Trellis has been taken back to his father, the Elf King, who once again sends him out to find and kill (or capture?) Emily because she's a Stonekeeper. Trellis is accompanied by Luger, one of the Elf King's henchmen, to ensure that he'll do the job right this time.

Book 2 didn't work quite as well for me as Book 1. The world was still fabulous, I still generally liked the art, and the battle at the end was pretty cool, but the characters didn't really grab me and the revelations about the amulet, although not unexpected, were a little depressing. It sucks that Navin gets the uncomplicated joy of piloting something that's essentially a mecha house while Emily gets powers that come with a constant risk of corruption. Here's hoping she actually gets to enjoy her abilities at some point.

The detail about the residents of Kanalis being affected by a curse that gradually turned them into anthropomorphic animals was interesting and unexpected. And yeah, I noticed that Miskit never answered the question about whether the curse was contagious, so there might be an "Emily or Navin is turning into an animal" storyline in the future.

Emily and Navin were joined by Leon, an anthropomorphic fox who for some reason was destined to teach her how to use her powers (never mind that he wasn't a Stonekeeper himself, as far as I could tell). It's possible that the rest of the series could be devoted to Emily and Navin's efforts to help the rebellion against the Elf King. Although Trellis is still presented as an antagonist, just a different brand of evil than his father, I have a feeling his path is going to be that of the reformed villain who ends up joining forces with the rebellion.

Will I continue reading on? Maybe, but not right now. This is the last of the volumes I own, and I'm not interested enough in the series to buy or check out more.

Meine Meinung
Weiter geht es in der Geschichte mit dem zweiten Band der Reihe. Der erste war schon sehr spannend und so geht es auch hier weiter.

Die Kinder haben ihre Mutter gerettet, doch sie ist krank. Sie müssen das Gegengift besorgen, doch das wird nicht leicht. Sie müssen mutig sein und zusammenhalten. Ein neues Abenteuer in einer fremden Stadt steht ihnen bevor.

In Kanalis, der Stadt, in der es evtl. einen Heiler für die Mutter der Kinder gibt, leben nicht nur gute Menschen, die ihnen wohlgesinnt sind. Dort begegnen sie auch den Elfen, die weit entfernt sind von den lieben und hübschen Elfen, die wir sonst vor Augen haben, wenn wir “Elfen” hören. Diese Dunkelelfen sind hässlich und gefährlich und kämpfen auf Leben und Tod. Sie bringen Grusel und Gewalt in die ganze Geschichte.

In diesem zweiten Band wird auch ein Geheimnis um das Amulett und den Elfenkönig gelöst, das den Fortgang der Serie noch spannender macht.

Mir gefallen auch die fantastischen Ideen, die der Künstler Kazu Kibuishi hier in die Geschichte einbringt; laufende Häuser, alte und sprechende Bäume, Menschen, die sich in Tiere verwandeln… Der schöne und bunte Stil ist auch hier wiederzuerkennen und macht großes Vergnügen, die einzelnen Bilder zu betrachten und alles in ihnen zu entdecken.

Weiterhin ist der Text in den Sprechblasen recht spärlich bestückt, insgesamt aber kindgerecht.

Ein gelungener zweiter Band der Serie, der mit einem Cliffhanger wieder Freude auf den dritten Teil macht, der voraussichtlich im Juni erscheinen wird. Ein Lesevergnügen für Jung und Alt, das vielleicht sogar Lesemuffel zum Buch greifen lässt. Absolute Leseempfehlung! ( )

Not as fun as the first one, but definitely expanded the world and the threat. I really liked the bad guy, and the obvious Zuko knockoff is still great, despite being an obvious Zuko knockoff. This series really hits the middle grade spot. ( )
