Audience: Children, Younger Teens
Emily, Trellis, and Vigo visit Algos Island, where they can access and enter lost memories. They're hoping to uncover the events of Trellis's mysterious childhood -- knowledge they can use against the Elf King. What they discover is a dark secret that changes everything. Meanwhile, the voice of Emily's Amulet is getting stronger, and threatens to overtake her completely.
Well, rats. Emily doesn’t fair well in the latest installment of Amulet. It still had plenty of adventure and great art. However, it felt like a book that sets up for more action later and doesn’t feel like a story on its own. I should have reread book 6 before reading 7, and I’m definitely looking forward to 8. A lot comes up in Firelight, but a lot is unresolved as well.
