9780552564847: The Black Reckoning: The Books of Beginning 3

The final book in the bestselling Books of Beginning trilogy that began with The Emerald Atlas, which the New York Times called “a new Narnia for the tween set.”

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.

About the Author:

John Stephens wrote and produced television for ten years. During this time, he read His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman and fell in love with fantasy for young readers. He spent the next several years waking at 4 am every morning to write his first book, The Emerald Atlas, before heading to work for the day. John lives in Los Angeles with his family.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4–7—In this series conclusion, it is young Emma's turn to take center stage and obtain the Book of Death, which the 12-year-old handles with bravery, imagination, and the willing assistance (nay, sacrifice) of beloved friends both new and old. There is high adventure: war with all its inherent idiocy (finding a leader is impossible when the witches, gnomes, and elves despise one another), the hunt for treasure, and an unsettling visit to the Land of the Dead. There is also humor, this time in the character of Willy the Giant, whose large body is easily matched by his wits and heart. Fear, frustration, and violence also feature in this story, as well as heartbreak. Ultimately, however, the lost are found, the world is saved, and love manages to win out in the end. With no guarantee of survival, the Wibberly siblings prove themselves to be worthy guardians over life and death. Readers will need to have read the first two books for maximum enjoyment. VERDICT A fine, if somber, end to an excellent fantasy trilogy.—Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Library
