The mother of two siblings gets abducted by a tentacled monster, so of course the kids have to figure out the secrets of their mysterious new home so they can save their mom. Fantastical, with beautiful artwork.

A family tragedy brings Emily, her brother Navin, and their mother to a new house that's been in the mother's family for years. Emily finds an amulet, which leads to their mother being kidnapped, which leads them to heading into a strange and new world. Family secrets begin to emerge and everything seems to be decently set up for the next one. I'm certainly curious.

Kibuishi has done his homework when it comes to myths and fantasy quest stories. Older readers might recognize moments that match Lord of the Rings or the Star Wars films. When I met the fox bounty hunter Leon Redbeard in the second volume of the series, I was immediately reminded of Strider from J.R.R. Tolkein's stories. There are rugged heroes, mysterious prophecies, and many examples of bravery and friendship thoughout the three books. It also successfully keeps its characters from falling into stereotypes. Few in this adventure are completely evil, and everyone offers understandable motives for their actions.
