Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the fifth installment of this bestselling series, the twins of prophesy have been divided, and the end is finally beginning.

With Scatty, Joan of Arc, Saint Germain, Palamedes, and Shakespeare all in Danu Talis, Sophie is on her own with the ever-weakening Nicholas and Perenelle Flamel. She must depend on Niten to help her find an immortal to teach her Earth Magic. The surprise is that she will find her teacher in the most ordinary of places.

Synopsis:

US

Synopsis:

Read the fifth 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.

The twins of prophecy have been divided--the end has begun.

Alcatraz:

Although their ally Dr. John Dee has been declared utlaga, Machiavelli and Billy the Kid will follow the plans the Elders have laid before them: they will loose the monsters of Alcatraz on the city of San Francisco, thereby triggering the end of the humani race.

Danu Talis:

The Shadowrealm that Scatty and Joan of Arc have entered is far more dangerous than they could ever have imagined. And they haven't landed here by chance--the warriors were called for a reason. So were Saint-Germain, Palamedes, and Shakespeare. The group was summoned because they must travel back in time to Danu Talis and destroy it. For the island of Danu Talis, known in humani myth as the lost city of Atlantis, must fall if the modern world is to exist.

San Francisco:

The end is finally near. Josh Newman has chosen a side, and he will not stand with his sister, Slophie, or the Alchemyst, Nicholas Flamel. He will fight alongside Dee and the mysterious Virginia Dare.

Unless Sophie can find her twin before the battle begins, all is lost--forever.

Praise for The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series:

The Alchemyst

[STAR] “[A] A riveting fantasy…While there is plenty here to send readers rushing to their encyclopedias…those who read the book at face value will simply be caught up in the enthralling story. A fabulous read.”—School Library Journal, Starred

 

The Magician

[STAR] “Readers will be swept up by a plot that moves smartly along, leaving a wide trailer of destruction and well-timed revelations.”—Kirkus Reveiws, Starred

 

The Sorceress

“Master yarnspinner that he is, Scott expertly cranks up the suspense while keeping his now-large cast in quick motion….This page –turner promises plenty of action to come.”—Kirkus Reviews

 

The Necromancer

“Unrelenting forward momentum….This book will thrill fans.”—School Library Journal

This book was a fabulous addition to the series. It brought back characters from previous books and he even created a few more. The end is finally coming with the next book, which is sad, but at the end he left us with one more twist that will bring you back for the final book.

As the cover suggests, this book strikes GOLD!

The fifth installment of Scott's fantastic series of mythological and historical inter-fusion could not have come with a better background color for the cover, GOLD! Because that's what this book is! This extremely fast paced title will have you flipping page after page, and before you know it you've polished off the whole thing. And isn't that what a good book is all about? Keeping your hands glued to the covers?

Continuing the story of teenagers Josh and Sophie Newman, The Warlock follows the siblings as their paths part ways and they find themselves further and further from each other. Nicholas and Perrenelle Flamel have the odds stacked against them, as they are literally fighting for their lives. The hodgepodge grouping that has stepped back in time to the island nation of Danu Talis, led by the mysterious hook-handed figure of Death, battles against insurmountable foes. The God of War Mars Ultor is awakened, Billy the Kid and Machiavelli struggle with releasing the cache of monsters, Dee and Dare continue to corrupt Josh, and Sophie finds out just who her Aunt Agnes really is!

Early in the book we find the ever confusing motives of the Witch of Endor uttering a single line that is true to it's core, "this world is in need of a warlock"! Indeed we were, Mr. Scott... Indeed we were!
