Publisher's Summary

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.

And I thought the Rocky series was long....

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes - the story is good, but Paul reads it a little more slowly than I'd like

What was most disappointing about Michael Scott’s story?

That it repeats the details a little more than necessary in order to keep new readers in the loop. The story should have had an ending by now but it keeps going and going and....

Would you listen to another book narrated by Paul Boehmer?

Not unless it was the next (and hopefully the last) in this series. His reading style is too slow for me. His voices are excellent, though.

Was The Warlock worth the listening time?

I have to say no. Had it ended, then I would have said yes. I feel tricked.

Any additional comments?

I understand trying to make the series last and a good story isn't usually complete in one book. However, I think by book 5, I'm getting a little tired and will consider ending my listening with this book.

Ok

Would you try another book from Michael Scott and/or Paul Boehmer?

Probably. It's a good story but it's just lasting too long. Narrator is great but I wish that they could keep the same one from book to book.

What was most disappointing about Michael Scott’s story?

I really thought that book 5 would be the end, but it just opens up more story lines and characters.

Have you listened to any of Paul Boehmer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Maybe - would depend upon how many movies it was made into.

Awesome Listen!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book without stalling. Michael Scott KNOWS how to make a great realistic book.

What other book might you compare The Warlock to and why?

I can only compare it to the rest of the series.

Which scene was your favorite?

When the group went to Danu Talis.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The world needs a warlock.

Any additional comments?

Keep up the great work Mr. Scott!

Drawn out ending to series

This exciting series did need a proper conclusion, but the addition of so many new characters made the ending drag on and on until the middle of the book.

It really made me listen

Michael Scott brings you in and wrings you out with each book in the series. This installment is no different. The story holds you tightly for the entire length of the telling. Mr. Boehmer, with respect, conveys all the voices admirably, although a few are so similar I had to "rewind" a few times to recapture the context of the story. Together, they endear you to hero and villain alike - no Dr. John Dee is still detestable throughout - but a few twists really took me by surprise. I look forward to book 6 wholeheartedly.

Too many characters, lots of loose ends

I don't recommend this book. I found the multitude of characters confusing and not well developed--how could there be with so many! I'm an adult who reads a lot of this genre, and I had a hard time following the story line, so even a bright child would probably be perplexed. I felt no attachment to any of the characters because each one is so sketchy. The story line is just okay. The narrator does the best he can with this mess.

Loved the ending

You have to read the first 4 books but I did love the ending. This series may or may not be intended for teenagers or the youth. It is a nice fun series. I am a seriously avid reader, and finish a novel per week. I picked up the first book in the series for my daughter. I ran out of books and picked it up. I have read all of them now. They are fun.
The series has characters that are well wrritten and believable. The goals and problems are very truthful. Michael Scott has to have or had a few teenagers because he has them down pretty well in the books.
Now don't think you are about to read a literary masterpiece but the stories have heart, soul, well planned themes and flow, and realistic well described characters. I love a good book and these are just that. GOOD BOOKS

Book 5 is going Strong!

VERY imaginative and fun series! To those who think he's milking a "cash cow" I say DON"T BUY IT! I personally am glad it's not over yet.It's not about getting to the end,it's the journey! So if you're not enjoying the ride get off the bus! For the rest who get immersed in the characters and creepy monsters,you will like this one too!

Best of the Series!

This audible book is the best I have ever listened to. The reader does the voices very well and with all the twisting that takes place it is essential to know who is talking. This book was awesome! I could not stop listening. The worst part was the cliff hanger ending.

The Warlock: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas

I have read all the previous books, and they were pretty good, but, how this one ever got the rating it did I'll never know. Hoping that it would get better, I listened to the entire first half and, well, it never did. The narrator is very good which is probably the only saving grace. I feel cheated that I wasted a whole credit on this book and would not recommend it to anyone.
