For fans finished with the Harry Potter series, this is an excellent path to take. The legend of Flamel is introduced in Rowling's first book Philosopher's Stone, and this series follows that storyline--that Flamel is immortal because of the elixir of life.

In Scott's series (which isn't based on Potter at all, I just think Potter fans will like it), Scott creates a story based on Nicholas Flamel's book with the secret of the elixir being stolen. There is a prophecy in the book that says this will happen and that the power of twins must be awakened. They can save the world from the Dark Elders--and of course they can also destroy the world if they work with the wrong side.

Great series and I'm looking forward to the other books.

Sophie, Josh, Nicholas, and Scatty retreat to Paris after the disaster on the West Coast. They arrive inside the Basilique du Sacré-Coeur. For Nicholas, he's returning home, but he hasn't been there for hundreds of years. Everything's changed.

Dr. Dee hasn't wasted any time; he immediately called for reinforcements - Machiavelli is already in Paris and waiting for them. With Sophie's newly awakened powers, they are able to escape. Nicholas leads them to the home of his old student. There, they regroup, rest, and recharge.

Once Dr. Dee arrives in Paris things begin to happen. He wants to capture the twins plus the last two pages of the codex, and he's willing to do anything to catch them.

The twins fight back, along with Nicholas, Scatty, Francis, and Joan of Arc. Together they make a stand, but is it enough to stop the powerful Magician?

Michael Scott blends mystery, fantasy, and history perfectly together into an adrenaline-filled, addicting novel.

Fully enjoyed this book. I found that I liked it better than the first one, but you must read the first to enjoy the second. Lots of action filled with lots of magic. The magic defenses are really creative. You always have to wonder how you defend yourself against the all powerful villains. But the author creates very plausible special spells to slow down or destroy the bad guys. Amazing how the author introduces new characters in the book and has them related to some historical fact. The author has started to re-describe some action scenes. This is a bit annoying since he goes into too much detail. There is no problem referring back to them but not with too much detail. But this is only a minor flaw. I still read the book in one weekend. Couldn't put it down.
The author has introduced two villains. As the more action unfolds with these two, I am not sure that one of these will turn away from the dark side at the last minute.... time will tell.
Already into book three....
