Read the third 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.
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.

Scott's been hinting at the fact that Perenelle Flamel is more powerful than she seems, but this entry starts to back that up. The frenetic pace of the series is starting to catch up with me - it's difficult to keep track of events, characters, or even the books. Every blends together in a blur. Read full review

This third book in the series is just as fun and adventurous as the first 2. I'm looking forward to see what comes to The Alchemyst and the twins. I really liked the "cliff hanger" ending of this book. Read full review
