The sixth and final book in the New York Times bestselling series The Secrets of the Nicholas Flamel—The Enchantress
The two that are one must become the one that is all. One to save the world, one to destroy it.
Nicholas and Perenelle Flamel have one day left to live, and one job left to do. They must defend San Francisco. The monsters gathered on Alcatraz Island have been released and are heading toward the city. If they are not stopped, they will destroy everyone and everything in their path.
But even with the help of two of the greatest warriors from history and myth, will the Sorceress and the legendary Alchemyst be able to defend the city? Or is it the beginning of the end of the human race?
Sophie and Josh Newman traveled ten thousand years into the past to Danu Talis when they followed Dr. John Dee and Virginia Dare. And it’s on this legendary island that the battle for the world begins and ends.
Scathach, Prometheus, Palamedes, Shakespeare, Saint-Germain, and Joan of Arc are also on the island. And no one is sure what—or who—the twins will be fighting for.
Today the battle for Danu Talis will be won or lost.
But will the twins of legend stand together?
Or will they stand apart—
one to save the world and one to destroy it?-Goodreads
What a great conclusion to an awesome series! I started reading The Secrets of The Immortal Nicholas Flamel six years ago, and I have to say that this one was the best of all!
One of my favorite parts about this book was the plot! Michael Scott does a fabulous job of really wrapping things up and answering all the questions that were previously unsolved in earlier books! I also love how he was able to blend different types of mythologies together to make them all work. This book definitely has a lot of action and suspense! Also, I love how the author was able to keep the reader on his/her toes and not know what was going to happen next! I will say that at times this book was a little bit confusing because their were so many different characters it was hard to keep track of them all! The twist at the end of the book I didn't see coming at all which was great because I love when unexpected things happen in books!
The two main characters, Josh and Sophie, really progress so much throughout this novel. They really balance each other out and you can see how much they care for each other. I do wish that we got to see a little bit more about what happens to both in the future (because this is the last book) and I was a little bit unsatisfied with the ending. Michael Scott also does a really great job of showing the progression of the other minor characters such as Scathach, Joan of Arc, Shakespeare and Saint-Germain. I really liked seeing how each character was able to grow from book to book. The other two main characters, Nicholas Flamel and his wife, Perenelle also were great in this book! I feel like I know them so well as characters because I have seen them grow throughout the series.
Overall, Michael Scott does a really great job of wrapping up this series! I am sad to say goodbye to The Secrets of The Immortal Nicholas Flamel series, but I am glad that this book ended with a bang! If you love different types of mythology, and action, this series is for you and I highly recommend that you check it out!!
My Rating: Four out of Five Stars
