In the fifth installment of this bestselling series, the twins of prophesy have been divided, and the end is finally beginning.
With Scatty, Joan of Arc, Saint Germain, Palamedes, and Shakespeare all in Danu Talis, Sophie is on her own with the ever-weakening Nicholas and Perenelle Flamel. She must depend on Niten to help her find an immortal to teach her Earth Magic. The surprise is that she will find her teacher in the most ordinary of places.

My Review

Well this is the second consecutive week that I have reviewed a book from The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series. I got my hands on this book when I was at the Book Expo of America in New York a couple of weeks ago; Mr. Michael Scott was signing the book the very day it came out. That is something I was very excited about. This book series is most definitely the best series I've read this year.

The Warlock was pretty much just awesome in a pot. Add some salt, little bit of freshly ground black pepper, and you got a pretty good book entree. In other words, this book is a mixture of all the right ingredients that you need to have an incredible, epic story.

I have said it many times before and I will say it once again; this series just keeps getting better with each book. The Warlock adds to the series in ways I wouldn't - couldn't - even imagine. I am convinced that Mr. Scott is incapable of writing a bad book. But, this is purely my opinion; although these books have a very wide range of readers, there will be those who hate the book. These people would either be young whippersnappers probably under the age of ten or so, or them  teens who prefer just not to read. I can't really see anyone older picking up this book, but if they did, they would probably like it. There is a lot of historical and mythological content that would keep even Yoda guessing on where the series will go next. And that dude usually knows what gonna happen. Unless... Clouded by the Dark Side, the future is.

The Enchantress,  book six of The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series, will be coming out summer of 2012. This will be the final book in the series and I simply cannot wait to get my hands on it. I have extremely high expectations for this book and can only hope it will be a genius and awesome as the previous books of the series.
