So it's been about a year since I read the first four volumes in the Amulet series. And unfortunately that worked against me. I only vaguely remembered what was going on, so I really didn't enjoy this one the way I enjoyed the other ones.
Once again we are following Emily and her brother. Her brother is now a pilot and Emily is one of the last two remaining members of the Stonekeeper Guardian Council. Max is working with the Elf King; together they free a Mountain Giant, then begin attacking some of the cities. The Council goes to stop him even though they know they are not ready; they go to give their allies some help (or hope at the very least).
This volume also dealt a bit with the Void. One of the Stonekeepers had a theory that you could change the past using the Void, so the Elf prince Trellis goes to attempt to change his people's past mistakes. But the Void is not at all what it seems and he risks being trapped there.
Overall Prince of the Elves was an interesting read. But like I said, I don't remember a lot of what was going on, so in some parts the story was hard to follow. I guess I'll have to reread all five volumes right before the sixth one comes out.
*As of September 24/15, I am not taking any more requests from authors to read their books. I currently have too many books to read. I'll update this if/when that changes.*
I currently have 164 fiction books just sitting in my room to read (although that doesn't stop me from randomly picking books up at work or buying them on Kindle!). I've been keeping track of them on a paper list for years. This blog shares what I read as I attempt to get "the List" down to a more manageable number.
If you'd like to know what books are on the List, check out my Goodreads shelf devoted to them - it's my physical list digitized! I've also got a shelf for every book I've reviewed here on this blog.
Not everything I review here is actually on the List. Some books come from the library, some books are nonfiction (which are not included on the List), some books are on my Kindle (which have never been included on the List), and some books are given to me by friends and family.
Note: as of April 12/14, I am not going to add the *spoiler* warning I used to when I'm giving away details of books. I want to talk about the books I've read in whatever detail I'd like. So if you haven't read a book I'm reviewing, you might not want to read the review.
