P Is For Pyromancy

The word pyromancy comes from the Greek words pyros, which means fire, and manteia, which means divination; so its definition is the art of divination by means of fire. If you've ever become mesmerized the flames in a fire it will come as no surprise to you that pyromancy was probably one of the earliest forms of divination.

But of even greater importance to the world at large is the fact that Pyromancy is the name of the sequel of Alchemy, and will be coming out in the fall of 2014.

Pyromancy is the continuing saga of Ana, Sam, Juliette and Seb. After nearly destroying Chebeague, the school for magic in rural Maine, the intrepid foursome is sent to the Army Navy Academy in Carlsbad, California, along with Ana's ex-boyfriend James and Juliette's um--what is he? boyfriend? crush? Zach. ANA is not the school for rich, privileged mages that they have come to expect. ANA accepts anyone with the magical infection, but is much less prepared to deal with the insanity that is sometimes a side effect.

While they are there, they find out more about the Six, and learn that Dr. Child is not the only one with plans for them. Pyromancy is filled with excitement and adventure, but I would be lying if I didn't tell you that Pyromancy is actually a love story--several love stories actually. It is chalk full of kisses and heartache, and a surprising amount of happiness too. And of course moments that will make you laugh out loud.

I'm doing a terrible job describing it. You should go check out my pyromancy pinterest board. It explains it so much better than  I can.

Even though there are a lot of repeats, you should look at Sheena's board too.
