Overview

The Fire Chronicle (Books of Beginning Series #2) by John Stephens

After the tumultuous events of last winter, Kate, Michael, and Emma long to continue the hunt for their missing parents. But they themselves are now in great danger, and so the wizard Stanislaus Pym hides the children at the Edgar Allan Poe Home for Hopeless and Incorrigible Orphans. There, he says, they will be safe. How wrong he is. 

The children are soon discovered by their enemies, and a frantic chase sends Kate a hundred years into the past, to a perilous, enchanted New York City. Searching for a way back to her brother and sister, she meets a mysterious boy whose fate is intricately—and dangerously—tied to her own.

Meanwhile, Michael and Emma have set off to find the second of the Books of Beginning. A series of clues leads them into a hidden world where they must brave harsh polar storms, track down an ancient order of warriors, and confront terrible monsters. Will Michael and Emma find the legendary book of fire—and master its powers—before Kate is lost to them forever? 

Exciting, suspenseful, and brimming with humor and heart, the next installment of the bestselling Books of Beginning trilogy will lead Kate, Michael, and Emma closer to their family—and to the magic that could save, or destroy, them all.

I kniw the John Stephens will not dissapoint me, he didn't with the last book, and i kniw he wont with this book, because this is going to be the next Harry Potter, it will turn into a movie, and then my life will be compleeted, then they will make a movie for the second movie for the 2nd one!!!!

Imagnatine, inventive and egrossing. Just wish there was more to it. The cahrechters need more development. Forgive spelling, please. Overall, I liked it, despite the flaws. Good summer read for tweens.

When does the next one come out? I have been waiting forever! The fire chronicle really built on the emerald atlas. I might even venture to say that the 2nd was better than the 1st. Can't wait to find out Emma's book!

I can't wait for the third book in the series. This is a great series and reminds me a lot of Harry Potter. The audio book version is fantastic as Jim Dale is the best! (He also read the Harry Potter audio book version)! If you like Harry Potter, check this series out!
