Review from: Children's Book and Media Review:

Josh and Sophie Newman are now in Paris with Scatty and Nicholas. The more Nicholas uses his magic, the faster he ages. If they don't get the Book back, Nicholas will die in a few weeks. Not only are they being chased by Dr. John Dee, but also the immortal Niccolo Machiavelli—both very dangerous men with Dark Elders on their side. This unique bunch of people find shelter and food from a former student of Nicholas. The Comte de Saint-Germain and his wife Joan of Arc. Josh still doesn't trust Nicholas, but he and Sophie have nowhere to go. Sophie is still learning to control her newly Awakened powers, and with the help of Joan and Saint-Germain teaching her the magic of fire, Sophie is starting to understand how dangerous it can be to have magic. Dee and Machiavelli set in motion a plan to capture the twins with a mythical creature the Nidhogg. Little do they realize that Josh has the twin of Excalibur, Clarent. Josh fights off the Nidhogg and runs after it as the Nidhogg attempts to escape with Scatty in its claws. Josh eventually defeats it and willingly goes with Dee and Machiavelli to have his powers awakened. He is awakened by the God that Sleeps, or more well known as Mars. Sophie and Nicholas rescue Josh and flee to London. While all this is happening, Perenelle has defeated the Morrigan at Alcatraz and is now in league with the spider Elder, coming up with a plan to stop Dee from bringing the Dark Elders back into the world.

Book 2 From The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel...

If you like fast moving books... this series is for you!  There is always something happening with one or more of the Characters. The book is hard to put down, but then, all of this series is written the same way... Fast and furious!

I love all the characters, the real ones, the mythical ones and the ones that came out of Michael's mind along the story line and all he had to be sure was correct information along with the fantasy part. 

These books are listed as "young adults" but I am 76 and enjoying them for the second time!!

Michael Scott has written many other books but this series is my favorite.!

Thank you Michael!  And I wish you would write a few more short stories about some of the other character and put them together in another book!!
