The Sorceress Review

The Soceress
Written By: Michael Scott
Published: May 26, 2009

Goodreads Synopsis:

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.

My Thoughts:

The Sorceress is the third book in The secrets of The immortal Nicholas Flamel series by Michael Scott. Flamel and Perenelle are aging rapidly with every passing day.  The twins are both awkened and in need of training in the lemental magics. Sophie already has the training of both wind and fire and Josh has yet to get any training in the elemental magics. Perenelle finds an ally in an unlikely place but it is necessary for her escape from Alcatraz. Dee and Machiavelli have failed once to capture Flamel and the twins and their elders are angry. With Scatty gone the only thing they have for protection is Clarent, the twin sword of Excalibur. Clarent is known for the evil power it possesses and Dee wants it for his collection, luckily Scatty taught Josh some moves with it and he should be able to weild it well. Can Flamel get both twins trained in all the elemental magics before he and Perenelle succumb to old age? Will Josh be able to fight the power of Clarent or will he succumb to the evil?

I love this Series, this book was fantastic and picked up exactly where The Magician left off. I love Perenelle and she seems extremely intelligent and powerful. Flamel is a man of many secrets and wisdom, but are his intentions good? I love all of the action in this series, it is constant and wonderful I love all of the gods and goddesses in this series and all of the myths within the story. Michael Scott is a fantastic writer and I already have the next book in this series and can't wait to read it.
