More Flamel

The Warlock (2011) and The Enchantress (2012), Michael Scott

Yesterday’s post was about Vols 1-4 in this series. Today I finish it up.

So much fun! Sophie and Josh are in deeper trouble, Nicholas and his wife Perenelle are about to die, horrible monsters are set to ravage San Francisco, other characters have gone back in time to Danu Talis (aka Atlantis), and Dee is gleefully pulling the strings to bring about the end of the world.

UnknownSounds melodramatic? It is! A thrill ride, indeed. Scott’s knowledge of world mythology is immense, and it all comes into play here, as gods from all continents but Antarctica (and perhaps Australia) play pivotal roles. In these volumes, Scott answered a question about Sophie and Josh’s parents that had puzzled me for some time, in a way that made me gasp. I love it when that happens.

A tip of the hat to the cover artist, Michael Wagner. If you’re not getting these books in hard cover, you’re missing the high-quality embossed designs. Icons and images on each cover relate to the story inside, and you can waste a few hours trying to trace each one to its source. Ardent fans are adding to the Nick Flamel Wiki even as I write.
