Publisher's Summary

The fourth book in the New York Times best-selling series.

San Francisco: After fleeing to Ojai, then Paris, and escaping to London, Josh and Sophie Newman are finally home. And after everything they've seen and learned in the past week, they're both more confused than ever about their future. Neither of them has mastered the magics they'll need to protect themselves from the Dark Elders, they've lost Scatty, and they're still being pursued by Dr. John Dee. Most disturbing of all, however, is that now they must ask themselves, can they trust Nicholas Flamel? Can they trust anyone?

Alcatraz: Dr. Dee underestimated Perenelle Flamel's power. Alcatraz could not hold her, Nereus was no match for her, and she was able to align herself with the most unlikely of allies. But she wasn't the only one being held on the island. Behind the prison's bars and protective sigils were a menagerie of monsters—an army for Dee to use in the final battle. And now Machiavelli has come to Alcatraz to loose those monsters on San Francisco.

Perenelle might be powerful, but each day she weakens, and even with Nicholas back at her side, a battle of this size could be too much for her. Nicholas and Perenelle must fight to protect the city, but the effort will probably kill them both.

London: Having been unable to regain the two final pages of the Codex, Dee has failed his Elder and is now an outlaw—and the new prey of all the creatures formerly sent to hunt down Flamel.

But Dee has a plan. With the Codex and the creatures on Alcatraz, he can control the world. All he needs is the help of the Archons. But for his plan to work, he must raise the Mother of the Gods from the dead. For that, he'll have to train a necromancer. And the twins of legend will make the perfect pupils.

Pssst! Listen to more Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel.

    "Goes on and on and on and on"

    I have really enjoyed this series of books for the most part. But come on now, these books just go from the frying pan into the fire time after time! If you are an adrenaline junkie this is your read! I,on the other hand, like some quiet times woven into a story that develop the charters or the landscape, and give my adrenals a chance to catch up. The break neck pace these books go out actually burned me out and I sped forward to finish it. Also the readers of the first two books were amazing and this guy, not so amazing.

    "Way too weird"

    Throughout this series it seems as if the author is determined to drag in every mythical creature, event, and person possible. Even to the point of making actual historical people into fantasies. I managed to listen to the books to this point, but I can't stand to hear any more. The rest of the series will have to go on without me.

    I especially enjoy historical mysteries. I don't like to know how things end before I begin.

    "A waste of time and money"

    This is the worst in the series. Clearly written just to string out the series and resolve nothing. Don't waste your time. If you are smart you will never start the series as it goes nowhere but in circles. Very disappointing. Hope they never make the movie.

    "Not as good as the rest"

    I was a little disappointed with this book. It recovered at the end but the other books in the series were better. I will still listen to the next one.

    "Great"

    I loved the whole series. Can only highly recommend!! Too bad there are still two books to go, due 2010 and 2011 as far as I know. I'm definitely looking forward to each of them.

    I love to read! However, since I'm exhausted when I get home, I don't really want to do anything that causes me think. So, I watch TV.

    "Disappointed"

    I really enjoy this series; however, I am not happy with the ending of this book. I don't like how we were just left hanging. I feel like the book could have gone further. My question is when does the next book come out, because it feels unfinished.
