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.
Anyone among you a fan of Shakespeare? Get ready for some entertaining reading as Scott raise the stakes with each installment. I have to say, he is the master of his genre and continues the thrilling journey through history’s myths and legends.
The Sorceress is an adventure in its own and it is definitely worth following. Michael Scott has created a perfect epic fantasy world filled with legendary characters.
In order to to properly understand the plot, I would certainly reccomend you read the series in sequence starting with The Alchemyst, As you read through the series, I advise you to google the characters.
Seriously, Who wouldn’t love a novel with a little bit of history?
Here is one of many of my favorite lines in the novel.
“I spend all my time trying to keep thoughts away and ignore them….But here you are, trying to remember your own life, writing your thoughts down so that you don’t forget. I suddenly realized what it would be like not to know, not to remember.”
