Signed Book Sunday: The Sorceress by Michael Scott


JBN Signed Book Sunday
Signed Book Sunday is Meme run by JeanBookNerd.

What is SIGNED BOOK SUNDAY?

We are all in this community because of our common interest in reading. The books and stories have become somewhat a piece of us. Whether it be the meaning behind the stories or it has become associated to a period of a time in our lives, books have become more than just entertainment for our imagination.

Books are our gems and they become more of a treasure when they are signed by the author. Now that book has become more personal. It provides valued stories as to when the author signed it and the conversation that was engaged during the signing. These moments are unique and were only experienced by you. Having our favorite books signed is a testament to our love for reading.

Signed Book Sunday will be an outlet for us to showcase books that we have collected over the years with that once special scribble claiming that it was touched by the author. Everyone is welcome to join in on the fun. 

Show your signed books to others and see what others have collected through the years.

To participate, use the Signed Book Sunday Button (Above) and link back to JEANBOOKNERD with photos of your treasured Signed Books, Comics or Graphic Novels. You may provide details of your one of a kind experience or perhaps a moment that made a lasting impression. Share your Signed Book Books now and learn story behind other's signed books.



Book Three in the New York Times bestselling series.

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.

Irish-born Michael Scott began writingover twenty-five years ago, and is one of Ireland ‘s most successful and prolific authors, with one hundred titles to his credit, spanning a variety of genres, including Fantasy, Science Fiction and Folklore. He writes for both adults and young adults and is published in thirty-eight countries, in over twenty languages.

He is considered one of the authorities on the folklore of the Celtic lands and is credited with the resurgence of interest in the subject in the mid-1980’s. His collections, Irish Folk & Fairy Tales, Irish Myths & Legends and Irish Ghosts & Hauntings have remained continuously in print for the past twenty years and are now included amongst the definitive and most-quoted works on the subject.

His horror novels, Banshee, Image, Reflection, Imp and Hallows are considered cult classics of the genre and draw heavily upon his encyclopaedic knowledge of folklore.

In the United States , the first two volumes of his fantasy trilogy, Silverhand and Silverlight, were published to exceptional reviews, Publishers Weekly declaring “This shows how good fantasy can be.”

Whom The Gods Love, a ground-breaking dark-fantasy set in the hitherto unexplored world of ancient Etruria before the rise of the Roman Empire and The Merchant Prince, an historical fantasy set in the Elizabethan era, give an example of his breadth of writing. The Irish Times called him, “The King of Fantasy in these Isles.”

Michael Scott is an accomplished scriptwriter and headed up the drama department in Tyrone Productions, the creators of Riverdance. He has written for the stage and screen and also created and scripted documentaries and drama for television. He has also scripted high profile events such as the Special Olympics which were held in Ireland in 2002 and the Irish Film and Television Awards.

The Alchemyst was published by Random House in May 2007, followed by The Magician (2008), The Sorceress (2009), The Necromancer (2010) and The Warlock(2011). The final book in the series, The Enchantress, will be published in May 2012. Translation rights have been sold into 38 countries.

Praised for his “unparalleled contribution to children’s literature,” by the Guide to Children’s Books, Michael Scott was the Writer in Residence during Dublin’s tenure as European City of Culture in 1991, and has featured in the 2006 edition of Who’s Who in Ireland as one of “the 1000 most significant Irish.”

  7. We live in wooded areas and I loved to go exploring and find animals and fossils. There were streams and ponds. Wild blackberries were everywhere and they are still my favorite.

  8. My favorite event from my childhood is when my cousin put me on a wild horse at the local rodeo. She snapped a picture and my mom was freaking out that I was on the horse's back. I was five years old.
