Nicholas Flamel appeared in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter--but did you know he really lived? And he might still be alive today! Discover the truth in Michael Scott's New York Times bestselling series the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel with The Sorceress , book three.

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.

"Master yarnspinner that he is, Scott expertly cranks up the suspense while keeping his now-large cast in quick motion.... This page-turner promises plenty of action to come."-- Kirkus Reviews

good book

the cool thing about this book is that the symbol on the cover hints to plot of the story. It has historical characters that I really enjoyed.

Perenelle Flamel is still trapped on Alcatraz in San Francisco, and as if having the deadly magic-sucking Sphinx hunting her down isn’t bad enough, Billy the Kid has arrived with reinforcements. However, the bad guys seem to have underestimated the Sorceress. She has had a little time to recharge her powers, and is ready and waiting for whatever he brings her way. But the Crow Goddess and the Old Man in the Sea are the ones coming for her. They could be trouble. Especially if they unleash the bizarre army of monsters locked in the cells of Alcatraz Prison.
Nicholas Flamel has traveled to London with the twins. Both of them have had their powers awakened, and their gold and silver auras are the strongest and purest anyone has ever seen. Sophie has already been trained in both the Magic of the Wind and the Magic of Fire. Josh, however, is still powerless and a bit jealous of his sister. The goal is to have Gilgamesh the King train them in the Magic of Water. The only problem is, the last time Flamel and Gilgamesh talked, the King tried to kill him. All their hope lies in the crazed mind of the oldest being alive. And Machiavelli is hot on their trail. If Gilgamesh can’t help them, then they might be stuck without options. The Flamels are aging faster with each day and desperately need to find the Book of Abraham the Mage or they’ll die.
The Sorceress is an exciting novel. The third installment in the Nicholas Flamel series, it introduces several new characters, and is full of action and surprising twists. Not a boring read by any means!

At the end of each chapter the author changes perspectives which builds the suspense and i love that about this series. This series gets better every chapter.
