"A fallen city where terrible secrets are revealed...
Emily and her friends think they'll find the help they need in Cielis, but something isn't right. Streets that were once busy are deserted, and the townspeople who are left live in fear. Emily is soon escorted to the Academy, where she's expected to compete for a spot on the Guardian Council, a group of the most powerful Stonekeepers. But as the number of competitors gets smaller and smaller, an awful secret is slowly uncovered- a secret that, if left buried, means the certain destruction of everything Emily is fighting for."

My Rating: 5/5

This has been by far my favourite instalment in the series. It was dark and hard hitting. All in all, an incredible use of illustration to demonstrate our characters power as well as their ability to think quickly. Although I found the ending to be slightly predictable (I'm an adult, not middle grade to be fair), I still loved it. I think that this fourth book got down to the point and I'm more than interested in what will happen next. The world is tremendous and I would imagine it only gets better from here. So buckle up and read these amazing graphic novels.

Thanks for reading,
