The adventures of siblings Kate, Michael, and Emma come to a stunning conclusion when they must find the last Book of Beginning—the Book of Death—before the Dire Magnus does, for when all three books are united, their combined power will be unstoppable. 

Soon Emma is on a journey to places both worldly and otherworldly, confronting terrifying monsters and ghosts, and what is darkest within herself. As the fabric of time begins to fray, she becomes the final piece of an extraordinary puzzle. Only if she can master the powers of this most dangerous book will she, Kate, and Michael be able to save the world from the dramatic, deadly final confrontation between magical and ordinary people that the Dire Magnus has in store.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This fantasy trilogy closes with both satisfying finality and the realistic, requisite heartbreak that comes with saying goodbye.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Fans of The Emerald Atlas will find much to love: the adventure-driven plot, a scattering of deliciously scary moments, and Stephens’ offbeat take on Tolkienesque dragons, dwarves, and elves are sure to delight.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review), on The Fire Chronicle

  • “Fans of the first book won’t be disappointed, and will eagerly anticipate the next one. The Emerald Atlas was very good. This one is even better.”

    School Library Journal (starred review), on The Fire Chronicle
