After fleeing Ojai, Nicholas, Sophie, Josh, and Scatty emerge in Paris, the City of Lights - and home of Nicholas Flamel. Only this homecoming is anything but sweet. Perenell is still locked up back in Alcatraz, and Paris is teeming with enemies. Niccolò Machiavelli, immortal author and celebrated art collector, is working for Dee. He's after them, and time is running out for Nicholas and Perenell.
For every day spent without the Book of Abraham the Mage, they age one year, their magic becoming weaker and their bodies more frail. For Flamel, the Prophecy is becoming more and more clear.
It's time for Sophie to learn the second elemental magic: Fire Magic. And there's only one man who can teach it to her: Flamel's old student, the Comte de Saint-Germain - alchemist, magician, and rock star. Josh and Sophie Newman are the world's only hope.
Pssst! Listen to more Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel.

so far this series has been wonderful. The stories are billed as for the teenage reader, yet even as an adult I think they are fantastic. the way the characters, real people, and characters of myth/ legend are used in the story telling is exciting. Great performance that helps the listener complete his mental imagery.
Good fun story that kept the whole family engaged and was sufficiently enjoyable enough to ensure our purchase of the next book in the series.
Narration was generally good but some very questionable accents and a few absolutely horrible voice choices (Mars the God of War had a high, petulant, reedy, whiny voice that was so terrible it made me want to scream) detracted somewhat from the experience. But over all, it is still well done.
Very well read, very easy to know which character is being voiced.
Use of history and legends meld well into a story of modern adventure. Adding human emotions and desires to the motivations of the legendary characters makes them seem more real/plausible.
The next book can not down load fast enough.
Can't wait to get the next book and start reading it. You will enjoy it especially if you have a twin!
Very compelling.... I can't wait to finish one ... To start another! Outstanding performances and storyline is great. Thanks for the listen.
