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.

    Story
    "Josh is so dumb"

    Josh is pretty much the worst character, like jar jar binds bad. I hate how dumb he is. I get that the sword has altered him, and the bad guys have also tweaked him a bit. I just wish he'd stop and think for a sec. The Dr. had knowingly and deliberately tried to kill him and he's still, like Nicholas is the worst person ever. Nicholas could have ended up killing him during the awakening, but Josh pushed for that on his own and was then stupid and complained about the risk to Sophie.

    "Thank you Michael Scott for another great story"

    I'm excited and sad to be reaching the end of this amazing series. I really can't fault this in any way. Just a joy to listen to

    Story
    "Series is predictable and quite boring"
    What disappointed you about The Warlock?

    The writer has gotten totally lazy with this series. I enjoyed the first two books as the author was building the world and drawing in various mythologies. With this installment, I found myself just hoping that the male sibling would just be killed off as the author lazily just had him "be confused" into switching alliances. The author should have written true uncertaintly into the series to make it difficult to know which side was "right." I will not be buying the rest of the series as I just don't care about the characters anymore.


    What was most disappointing about Michael Scott’s story?

    Poor plot choices


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

    First time with this reader. I prefer narrators who use more inflection and emote more with their voice. As a reference Wil Wheaton is one of my favorite narrators.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    ambivalence and indifference

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

    This is a solid story about a variety of mythological figures. The narrator is able to utilize varying voices which help to bring the characters to life.

    "Barely OK if you like the series"

    My wife and I have listened to this series, and mostly like it. This book is clearly setting the stage for the last book and grand finale. For God's sake don't get this audiobook if you are not into the series, it is not very good. Michael Scott has really under-performed, producing just enough of the lightweight, cheesy action - fantasy we like. After this series is ended I won't start another by him.

    Story
    "A great book to escape the chaos of life!"
    If you could sum up The Warlock in three words, what would they be?

    I love stories about the world of magic. My real life is rather stressful on many points and it is nice to get carried away to a place of fantasy.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story keeps a great pace, it is appropriate to share with my 11 yr old daughter and I find myself lamenting that this is the last book in the series.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    too many to pick - perhaps each of the awakening of the twins' powers


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

    The magic continues

    "The story is hotting up"
    If you could sum up The Warlock in three words, what would they be?

    Tense, exciting and a bit of a whirlwind. Mr Scott has really created an amazing world with some great characters and a wonderful story. If you have been following the entire series you will certainly enjoy some of the twists that have been introduced in this book and, whilst its a long book, the series seems to be rushing to the climax.

    The growth of the two main characters is good although I have to admit that they both whine a bit - feeling sorry for themselves and their place in history. It is easy for me to forget that they are both only 15.

    Apart from that I am really enjoying this series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Definitely Billy the Kid as he is the most fun - apart from the fact that he is one of the coolest ever!


    What does Paul Boehmer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He allows me to enjoy the book whilst stuck in traffic - Its frowned upon to read whilst driving so thanks Paul.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I am definitely looking forward to the next one.

    I am a person that tries and get through 1 book a week if possible. I am Dyslexic so this is really the only way I can get through a book. I have listened to more book in a year than I read my first 20 years of my life. I found the joy of audio books in the early 2000 and have been a audible customer since 2000 or 2001. I have over 490 books in 2 different accounts and listened to 90%.

    Story
    "Getting through this series is becoming a chore"
    What made the experience of listening to The Warlock the most enjoyable?

    The narrator was pretty good and did a nice job with most of the voices.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Michael Scott? Why or why not?

    Yes because I would like to find out how this story finally ends; however, this particular series just needs to end. It is getting tiresome.

    Just get to the point already!


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

    No, so I'm not sure how it compares. He did a good job with most of the characters, but I didn't care for how he portrayed the two main characters, especially Sophie.
