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 four of the New York Times best-selling series the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel. 

The belief: Sophie and Josh are the twins of prophecy. 

The reality: Nicholas Flamel has been wrong before. 

Sophie and Josh Newman are finally home, but they're both more confused than ever about their futures. Neither of them has mastered the elemental magics they'll need to protect themselves from the Dark Elders, they've lost Scatty, Macchiavelli is coming to unleash on their city the menagerie of monsters imprisoned in Alcatraz, and they're still being pursued by Dr. John Dee. 

And most disturbing of all is that now they must ask themselves, can they trust Nicholas Flamel? Can they trust anyone?

“Unrelenting forward momentum.... This book will thrill fans.” (School Library Journal)

building, Building, BULIDING - Can't wait!

This novel intensifies your feeling for the characters. By the end of this book you have so much invested in the story that you want to know the end; but are starting to mourn that there are only two more novels. This is the 2/3 point in the series. Be prepared for heartbreak and surprise – who is who. The strands of the base story complicate in this installment leaving you unsure of what twists and turns lay ahead -- excellent. There are storms brewing on every front, elder and immortals and on the side of good and the side of evil. You’ll have some big questions at the end of this one for sure.

Josh Newman's insecurity is utterly annoying

Josh Newman's insecurity is utterly annoying. I find myself loving the story less and less because of this character.

Eh, I wish this was as good as the first three

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

This series started off with a bang and has been slowly going downhill. The narration is fine but I'm starting to become annoyed with the plot points. This book expanded the number and complexity of the story lines being followed (and many of the new ones don't add anything). Nothing is resolved in this book and Josh (who was always a little whiny) becomes such an annoying little idiot that I almost don't want to listen to the next book despite how much I want to know how everything ends.

Good, but needlessly frustrating!

I actually enjoy this series(despite the narrator who everyone rags on). It is an enjoyable listen, but it is necessary to note that the plot is a bit predictable at some points and ridiculous at others. It isn't that the twins shouldn't show mistrust of the flamel's, it's just that the level of distrust seems overly dramatized, and needlessly heightened to no foreseeable resolution. Anywho, there I leave you with a brief two cents

Just a fun book.

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

Frustrating

Josh as a character is very annoying, that character alone makes it hard to read/listen to. That, and the fact that the author has the need to repeat that every one can speak a dozen languages, we get it man.

Performance

The story was very good but the performance needs work. You can hear the narrator licking his lips and his lips smacking!
