The Stonekeeper is the first volume in the Amulet series. It sets the stage for Emily and Navin’s adventure. We learn of their father’s death and their subsequent move to their great-grandfather’s disheveled house. It is here Emily finds the Amulet, and Emily, Navin, and their mom Karen are taken to Alledia, an alternate world. In Alledia, they meet their great-grandfather, Silas Charnon, and his assistants, who help maintain the house in this alternate world. These assistants include Miskit, a talented rabbit, and robots named Cogsley, Ruby, and Morrie. Emily and her family quickly learn that they were destined to save this alternate world from as yet unknown evil.
