I started reading the Amulet series last summer when I came to this Library the first time and I loved on the very first page (although the first page was sort of a downer) now I am on the third book and it was again exciting and kept me on the edge of my seat! I would definitely recommend this book!  Shaker Heights Public Library Catalog
