Amulet Book 9 Release Date
In 2014, the writer of the series Kazu Kibishi confirmed that the novel series will consist of nine books. At the same time, he predicted that the last volume would come out in 2021. Unfortunately, the pandemic interrupted the writer’s plans and the book’s release had to be postponed.
Kibishi explained the reason for the delay in Amulet Book 9’s release on Twitter. He said,
“Amulet 9 has been different than any book I have worked on before. It requires much more information to be curated/compressed into the final product. Here’s a look at the amount of content created so far. This energy will be condensed into a small book that fits in a backpack.”
The caption was paired with a picture consisting of four huge stacks of paper.
He also added,
“Right now, I’m working on Amulet 9 Book 9, the concluding volume in the series. When we come closer to completion, Scholastic Graphix (the publisher) will announce a release date.”
As of now, the publisher’s schedule has set the release date on April 5,2022. However, the date may be pushed back incase of unforeseen circumstances.
In Amulet Book 8, we saw the Amulet completely possess Emily but she manages to escape. The next book will pick the story up from here. Her relationship with the Amulet has changed forever. Thus, will she take help from it in the future?
Each book in the Amulet series is different from each other and each one focuses on a terrible tragedy in Emily’s life. From saving her mother to escaping from the elves to going on dangerous missions, Emily goes on several adventures throughout the book series. The ninth book will also deal with a new problem and a new journey that Emily and her brother must embark on. However, this time, they may not get any help from the amulet!
