Book Review: The Fire Chronicle by John Stephens

Jan 24, 2013

Kate gets separated from her younger siblings in the adventurous sequel to the best-selling novel, The Emerald Atlas. Kidzworld has the book review of The Fire Chronicle by John Stephens.

Separated

With The Emerald Atlas in their possession, it’s time to obtain the second of the three Books of Beginning. But this poses a challenge when Kate is transported to the late 1800’s after saving her siblings from a screecher. Now that the Atlas has disappeared, Kate is stranded.

The Quest

With Kate missing, Michael and Emma begin their search for The Fire Chronicle. They, along with Gabriel, travel to a land of elves where a fearsome dragon guards their sought after book. But when the evil Rourke discovers their whereabouts, the dragon becomes the least of their worries.

The Past

Meanwhile in 1899 New York City, Kate meets a kind thief named Rafe who is destined for evil greatness. For some reason, he seems to know Kate, and is bent on protecting her. She’ll need his help if she’s ever to return to the 21st century, but at what price?

The Bottom Line

The second book in the Books of Beginning series by John Stephens is just as adventurous as the first. It offers great action scenes and a closer look at the beloved characters as each of them age one year. We definitely recommend this book, but of course, if you haven't read book 1 - The Emerald Altas - we suggest you start with that.
