Amulet, by Kazu Kibuishi (1978-)
Amulet – The last council is book 4 in the series. Emily is getting older and more control of her amulet. This book is probably the most violent of the series in my opinion. In this book Emily meets some arch enemies. She meets eight other stone keepers and they and Emily have been sent on a quest. to find the mother crystal. However, the other stone keepers and the council are destroyed by Max, one of the eight stone keepers. As a reader I became more anxious for Emily because there were lots of fights between the stone keepers.
I found this book confusing, but I still enjoyed it.
