Product description

Read the third book in the "New York Times" bestselling The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series, perfect for fans of "The Maze Runner" and Percy Jackson and the Olympians. Nicholas Flamel's heart almost broke as he watched his beloved Paris crumble before him. The city was destroyed by Dee and Machiavelli, but Flamel played his own role in the destruction. Sophie and Josh Newman show every sign of being the twins of prophecy, and Flamel had to protect them and the pages from the Dark Elders. But Nicholas grows weaker with each passing day. Perenelle is still trapped in Alcatraz, and now that Scatty has gone missing, the group is without protection. Except for Clarent--the twin sword to Excalibur. But Clarent's power is unthinkable, its evil making it nearly impossible to use without its darkness seeping into the soul of whoever wields it. If he hopes to defeat Dee, Nicholas must find an Elder who can teach Josh and Sophie the third elemental magic--Water Magic. The problem? The only one who can do that is Gilgamesh, and he is quite, quite insane.

While it's not the best in the series, it's still a great read. New characters make the scene with lively personalities. Famous people from the past also make an appearance. The problem with this book though is that it didn't really seem necessary for an entire book. Barely anything important in the plot happens and it takes way longer than it should have. It almost seems that this book was just to get you warmed up for the book after it. If more happened in this book it would have been better. But they were stuck on one problem the entire time and I'm pretty sure they still haven't even solved it. Still it's a good read for fans of the series and I can't wait to read the rest of them.

Sophie and Josh are still on their whirlwind adventure. They've moved from Paris, leaving confusion and disaster in their midst, and are traveling to London. When they arrive in London, they've been noticed and are being tailed.

Dr. Dee is still after the twins. However, the stakes have been raised.

With them both awakened, he doesn't need Nicholas Flamel alive. He also needs to find the twins fast without letting them slip away again or his master will inflict terrible consequences upon him. Meanwhile, his partner in crime, Machiavelli, heads to the island of Alcatraz to finish off the Sorceress. His master's also concerned about the number of failures in regards to capturing the twins and the Flamels.

Time is of the essence to seize both the twins and to open the doors between worlds. Plus, every hour the Flamels grow weaker and older. Can they hold together and combine their strength to fight off the evil beings?

Michael Scott blends mystery, fantasy, and history perfectly together into an adrenaline-filled, action-packed, fast-paced, addicting novel in THE SECRETS OF THE IMMORTAL NICHOLAS FLAMEL series.
