Publisher's summary

Nicholas Flamel appeared in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter - but did you know he really lived? And his secrets aren't safe! Discover the truth in book two of the New York Times best-selling series the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel.

The enemies: Dr. John Dee and Niccolo Machiavelli.

Their plan: Steal the rest of what Nicholas Flamel has fought to protect.

John Dee has the Book of Abraham the Mage, which means the world is on the brink of ruin. Except he's missing two crucial pages, pages that Nicholas, Sophie, Josh, and the legendary warrior Scatty have taken to Paris.

But Paris is teeming with enemies - and old acquaintances like Nicollo Machiavelli. On the run and with time running out for Nicholas and his wife, Perenell, Sophie must 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.

"The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel has everything you loved about Harry Potter, including magic, mystery, and a constant battle of good versus evil." (Bustle)

Good book, decent narration.

I really enjoyed the story of the book and the effort of the author to make all the fantasy elements somewhat grounded in real life. Whitch makes the story (atleast for me) easier to get deeply emersed into.

I liked the narrators accents but i felt like he often missed the emotions of the scenes and could work on improving the delivery of the emotional content.

But all in all, a good book that is worth a listen!

Didn't want the book to end.

I didn't mind the narrator at all. Overall could wait to finish and yet can't wait to start the next one to find out what happens.

I wish this was real!

This is a worthy sequel to book 1 of The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel. Good character developement and the wild pace continues. Wonderful setting in Paris, past and present. Too bad Denis O'Hare didn't continue the narration.
