This series has been a joy to read for the past few years, and I was both excited and sad to approach this final book. I found myself reading chapters at a time, then forcing myself to stop so that the journey could go on. The character development is wonderful, and the heartfelt journey of each of the main characters climaxes in each of their epic battles in this final book.

I won't reveal any details, but there is a surprise ending that totally shocked me - I mean you never see this one coming until it's too late. If this series ends up being made into a movie, it must have great directors and actors, but I think it could be an awesome series of movies.

This book provided great closure on most major issues, but some questions did linger, such as the fate of the individual Archons, and the origin of the ancient weapons, and it makes me wonder if there will be a spin-off series of books to address them.

If you haven't been introduced to this series, please pick up the first book, The Alchemyst, and get to reading!!!

We're finally at the end of of Nicholas Flamel's journey, and I'm glad to say this book was not a disappointment.
Without spoiling it for those who have not read The Enchantress yet, let me just say that I suggested you buy this last installment to the series. While not as intriguing as the first book (which, to be fair, is where it all started), The Enchantess provides closure for each character by the ending. (And for me, closure was an ABSOLUTE MUST!)
The imaginative world Scott has produced remains vividly "enchanting" in this book while weaving together multiple characters from different "universes/folklore". It shouldn't work, or at least, it would be hard to place such characters within the same universe for a reasonable purpose. But somehow, it does work quite smoothly (in my opinion, anyway). While it is not historically accurate, this series (and this last installment) does well to at least introduce its audience to the characters (and their origins). Each character has his or her own strengths and weaknesses. Some characters are even well-developed that they can be considered 3-dimensional, displaying actions and/or thoughts beyond their given stereotype.

My only complaints come from:
1. Too many additional characters. It's fun being introduced to many of the mentioned characters. It just goes to show you how diverse Scott's thinking was when he wrote this book. But after a while, it became tiring to keep track of this person and that person and that person. Each character was given a sufficient description, so (s)he'd appear less like an extra. Were they interesting? Yes, but to a certain point. If the character served a greater purpose to the fate of the main characters and plot, then they were quite interesting. Otherwise, you can think of the character as an extra to "enhance" the plot. It helped...to an extent.

2. Josh and Sophie. Please tell me I'm not the only one who finds these two annoying. Sophie does not waver in her faith of the Flamels as much as her brother. My problem is with Josh. Yes, it's natural to be skeptical. But Nicholas Flamel is one of the greatest minds of Earth, and I'm sure if he did more research on his "boss," he wouldn't be so hesitant and reckless. It drives the plot forward, but it's quite annoying when a character refuses to view all sides of the story. While I am upset by that, Josh has redeemed himself by the end of the book.

As for the product itself, the packaging was well done. The cover was shiny, textured, and new. No complaints. Merely praise for a job well done on representation.

So do I recommend this book? Yes. And if you want closure, it's a definite a must have.

The Enchantress, Book 5, The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel
By Michael Scott

This book is the end of Scott’s 6-part series. I very much enjoyed each book, as much for the fantasy of every conceivable god/legendary being/creature every heard of (and I few I’m convinced Scott made up himself) being able to be convincingly stuffed into one 6 part story as for the story itself. I started buying the books for my great-nieces, as the main characters are teenagers. But, of course, I need to read them, too!

Many of you may have never heard of Nicholas Flamel prior to his appearance in the Harry Potter Book “The Philosopher’s Stone.” However, he was a real life schrivener and manuscript seller from the 1300/1400s. His reputation as an alchemist arose only after his death. Look him up.

I did that a lot reading this series – look people and things up, that is. The series features gods, legends and creatures galore. I’m going to list just those mentioned in this book, although that doesn’t mean they actually appeared in the book, just were mentioned. But, if they were mentioned, it does mean they made an appearance elsewhere in the series. Believe me, this is a short list compared to everyone/thing that appeared in the entire series.

First the Gods/Elders/Archrons/Ancients:
Quetzalcoatl
Prometheus
Isis
Osiris
Mars Ultor (aka Huitzilopochtli)
Odin (aka Baleyg the Flamikng Eye)
Hel
Scathach (aka The Shadow)
Aoife (Scathach’s sister)
Nereus (aka Old Man of the Sea)
Bastet
Marethyu (Death)
Eris
Aten
Zehaniah (The Witch of Endor)
Hekate
Coatlique
Amenhotep
Anubis
Chronos
Medea
The Crow Goddesses: The Morrigan, Macha and The Badb (all in one body)
Xoloti (Evil Twin of Quetzalcoatl)
Janus
Ard-Greimne
Dagon
Inanna

And now the Immortals:
Nicholas Flamel
Pernelle Delamere Flamel (his wife)
Machiavelli
Billy The Kid
Niten
Dr. John Dee
Virginia Dare
Black Hawk (Ma-Ka-tai-me-she-kia-kiak)
William Shakespeare
Palamedes (Saracen Knight)
Comte de Saint-Germaine
Joan of Arc
Tsagaglalal (She Who Watches)
Gilgamesh
Abraham The Mage
Barbarossa
Zenobia
Pyrgomache
Khutulun (“Shining Moon,” niece of Kubla Khan/related to Genghis Khan)
Ynagulnid
Macandus
Davy Crockett

Moving on to Creatures:
Areop-Enap (Old Spider)
Boggarts
Trolls
Cluricauns
Minotaur
Windigo
Oni
Dragon-kin
Wyverns
Firedrakes
Huskrommyon (The Crommyonian Boar)
Sphinx
Anpu
The Spartoi
Sackmen (Torbalan)
Disir
Nidhogg
Fir Dearg/Mna Dearg
Vetala
Moss People Cucubuth
Tomovi
Torc Alita (wereboars)
Bear-sarks (Berserkers)
Monokerata (evil unicorns)
Karkinos (Giant Crab)
Wyrm
Smok
Lindworm
Asterion

Phew!

Also, in this particular book, there were things and places, such as Yggdrasill (The World Tree), tonbogiri rifles, vimana (a flying saucer type craft), the Pyramid of the Sun in Danu Talis (Atlantis) and lots of action at Alcatraz and in San Francisco. And don’t forget the numerous Shadowrealms that existed in this and other books in the series.

And let’s not forget the Twins of Legend, and I guess who you’d call the main characters of the series, Josh (The Gold Twin) and Sophia (The Silver Twin). And, yes, being from Lafayette, IN, right next door to Purdue University, I couldn’t help but picture them twirling batons, rather than their swords of power: Clarent (The Sword of Fire), Joyeuse (The Sword of Earth), Durendal (The Sword of Air), and Excalibur (The Sword of Ice). I also heard the Purdue fight song as an earworm whenever the books talked about the Twins of Legend!

So that’s a lot of characters and a lot dimensions and a lot of timeline to follow. Especially in this last book, where you are one chapter in the present, the next 10,000 years ago in Danu Talis and where people who are related and/or acquainted know each other well in one timeline and not at all in another.

But, it all made for a fantastical and mesmerizing read. I do not intend to go back and try to write reviews for the other 5 books in the series. Suffice it to say that you should read them from the beginning. Here’s the Order: The Alchemyst, The Magician, The Sorceress, The Necromancer, The Warlock and, finally, the Enchantress.

Scott did a boatload of research for this series, and it paid off. He does a great job of popping characters and creatures, places and things, in and out of the action. And action there is. From the beginning of the first book this the final battle near the end of the last book, the reader is on a roller coaster ride of legend, lore, gods, immortals and the struggle to maintain the world as we know it. Buy, rent or borrow the books, take a deep breath, and plunge right in.

Of course, I was thrilled that I noticed absolutely no spelling errors or grammatical errors. I was also really stocked when I came across this Star Trek reference starting at about 1650 on my Kindle (and continuing through 1668):

…I’m feeling a little paranoid. Did you ever watch Star Trek?”



They’re usually accompanied by a guy in a red shirt. Always a crewman you’ve never seen before. And as soon as you see the red shirt, you know he’s going to die.”



Billy leaned forward. “Don’t you see …” The bobbing light threw his glittering eyes into shadows. “Wer’re the red shirts.”

Loved that touch. :-)

Sorry, folks. I really have nothing to complain about (other than trying to juggle that huge cast of characters, etc. in my tiny, aging brain). Just go read the books. I think you’ll enjoy them.
