An interesting end to an interesting, complex/complicated series. Two main complaints for both this book and the series - 1.) Too many characters and scenes resulted in too much confusion. I really think the book would have benefited from a tighter focus. 2.) Nicholas Flamel was hardly mentioned. I know the main action was with Sophie and Josh, but it felt kind of odd sidelining the title character. Despite those two complaints, I found the book to be an interesting and fun read. ( )

The Enchantress is the final book in the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series. Beginning where the 5th book, the Warlock, ended-- a great war is brewing between the Elders who are friendly to the Humani (humans) and the Dark Elders who want them dead. All gods great and small, old and young, are taking sides, and the lines between good and evil are getting blurrier by the moment. Good characters are doing evil stuff, while the evil ones are finding glimmers of redemption. Gold and silver Twins of Legend Josh and Sophie Newman have found themselves in Danu Talis, the legendary Isle of Atlantis—10,000 years in the past before the island first disappeared. The other shocker is that they have learned that two of the most powerful Elders in the city, the great Egyptian gods Isis and Osiris, are their parents and want to use them to overthrow the beloved ruler and lead all gods and humans into a bright new era of peace and prosperity (or do they??). The author has created quite a series and this book helps explain many of it’s mysteries. I feel the author wraps up the series in an unexpected but satisfying way. 4 out of 5 stars. ( )

This book is a continuation of the Warlock, the last book in the Nicholas Flamel series. In this epic book, the group of heroes charge into battle in both past and present, on Earth and on Danu Talis. Sophie and Josh Newman both meet the two mystical beings, Osiris and Isis, who claim to be the twins’ parents. Osiris and Isis retrieve the four swords of power, and give two to both Josh and Sophie. In armor made of gold and silver, the twins march into one of the oldest places during one of the oldest times on the oldest island ever.
Across the fabric of space and time, Nicholas, Perenelle, Niten, Billy The Kid, Machavelle, and even more immortals fight the soon to be overrun San Francisco. The Flamels and Machavelle reawaken the Old Spider, aka. Aerop Enap to help protect the city. Billy nearly dies to a giant crab, Mars Ultor dies, as well as Hel and Odin.
What will happen to these epic heroes? ( )

Great fantasy book! Loads of mythology and historical figures. Teachers can assign students a character to research for an extension activity. ( )
