Review quote

"Treachery, not trust, propels this dizzying whirl of subplots with an obligatory threat to the universe and a cliffhanging, surprising ending" -- Mary Shine Thompson * Irish Times * "An excellent addition to the series and moves the story on to a completely different level. By the end of the book everything has changed again and the cliffhanger ending hooks you again and keeps you hanging on desperately for the next book" -- Andrea Chettle * Fantasy Book Review *show more

Back cover copy

Trust no one . . . Josh and Sophie Newman have finally made it home - but San Francisco is no longer a safe haven for the twins. They have not yet mastered the magics they desperately need for protection against the Dark Elders, and Dr John Dee is still hunting them down. Worse still, the twins are no longer sure if they can trust Nicholas Flamel - or anyone. Having failed to retrieve the missing pages of the Codex for the Elders, Dee is now an outlaw - and the new prey of all the creatures sent to hunt down Nicholas Flamel. But Dee has a plan - to raise the Mother of the Gods from the dead. For that, he must train a necromancer. And the twins of legend will make the perfect pupils . . .show more
