The Sorceress by Michael Scott



Summary

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.


I was so glad when my boyfie told me that finally third book of Nicholas Flamel is being published! I've been waiting for.. rr, I dunno, for a loooong time, so I was so excited, and went find it in hurry! I remember once I've written about the first book. Well, it's pretty recommended to you to read both first and second book to get understand about the story plot.

Sophie and Josh Newman, the choosen twins, come back, after destroying beautiful Paris with their power, in order to against John Dee, and Nicollo Machiavelli. While Sophie had finished learning of the Magic of Air and Fire, they must find someone to teach them other powers. So, Flamel decided to take them to London, where he could find another Elder.

The third book is more twisted and have various character than previous one. It also has more action scenes, and I think you'll be exhausted imagining this book. I wonder if they would like to make movie based on this book, but I don't wanna be disappointed, because I don't think whoever will make the movie, should have no idea how to insert all details in this book. This book details a lot! You can see, for time setting, Michael Scott only set two days. For each book! So, when you decide to miss a scene, it won't be a complete story plot.

However, I don't really like to give you spoiler, but please, who among you are a great fans of Shakespeare?? If you really are, you must read this book, because he's gonna be an important character here! yes, believe it or noooo.. :)And, maybe, have you heard about Billy the Kid? If you haven't, please google, he is one of our newcoming antagonist.

As I told you before, if you feel Harry Potter is less pleasure, and look for more exciting adventures than The Chronicles of Narnia, you should enjoy this ones.
Happy reading!
