Book four in the series brings twins Josh and Sophie Newman back to San Francisco for a very brief reunion with their Aunt. But they barely have time to call their parents and let them know they're OK before their adventure continues. Nicholas and Pernelle have also returned to San Francisco, and along with a few new players they band together in an effort to stop Machiavelli from releasing the creatures trapped in Alcatraz. Meanwhile, the rest of our heroes (Scatty, Joan, Shakespeare, Palmedes and Saint-Germain) are reunited in an alternate location with a great battle of their own to stop. How will either team succeed with their forces split?

I'm sad to report that I was disappointed in The Necromancer. I've really loved each of the first 3 books in this series, but found this one to be uneventful filler. The last 30 pages contained all the necessary portions of the story, and rather than bore us with 200 pages of filler, this could have (and should have) been the opening chapters to book #5. And then after wading through hundreds of pages of build-up, we're left with a rather abrupt cliffhanger. I was honestly shocked when I turned the page to find out that the book had ended after only a few chapters of action.

While I wasn't impressed with The Necromancer, I will most definitely continue with this series. I very much want to know what happens in the end. Hopefully this one was a mis-step and the next book will actually have something in it.

This book continues on the same line as the 3 previous books. More people pop up from mythology. Still there is intrigue and the story seems to lead to some action scenes. Here I am disappointed. You have these characters who are in each right a master of magic. At every hint of danger their aura's start to flicker, ready for action. Yet when they meet you get one flick of the wrist magic spell and then that's it! Each book seems to prepare for the next book and doesn't seem to conclude any issues. I thought that this book would lead the final book, but I found that there are two more to go. After predicting it several times, Josh finally goes to the dark side. But the way it is done was not as expected and keeps you on your toes about this. The story simply gets more and more confusing with all the gods, elders, immortals. Sometimes you wonder if the book was written to bring out all these mythologies. But the story keeps you wanting more so it can't be that bad! So if you liked the first 3, then you should be okay with the fourth. I have continued to the 5th!

Sophie and Josh return home, unsure what to tell their Aunt about their adventures of the past few days. They certainly can't tell her the truth. As they walk up the road, they notice a car outside the house.

Curious and hesitant, they approach the car. A woman exits and they believe it's someone they know. However, almost too late, they realize it's an identical twin. Sophie ends up kidnapped and Josh left scrambling behind.

In order to save his sister, he travels back to the start of their adventure, the Flamels. Once he confides in them, they quickly follow after Sophie.

The Flamels don't have much time and they have already decided to fight before things spiral too far out of control, even though it might be the last thing they accomplish. They find Sophie and those watching over her. Together, they come up with a plan of attack.

Before they can accomplish their goals, they request someone to awake the fire powers in Josh. He readily agrees to the plan, already feeling inferior to his twin.

However, the Flamels didn't consider Dr. Dee in their planning. While his masters aren't pleased with his failures, Dr. Dee always has a plan. This plan includes taking over the world, but he needs Josh in order to set his plan in motion. Will Josh cross over to the other side and leave his twin and the Flamels behind?

The fourth book in this wonderful series won't disappoint fans with its magic, history, mythology, clever characters, evil plots, and strong sibling bonds. THE SECRETS OF THE IMMORTAL NICHOLAS FLAMEL is addicting and will leave readers on the edge of their seats.

I admit, these books probably were not targetted at my age group but I'm completely addicted to them. The meshing of real life with fantasy works really well and makes for a very compelling story. Only a few minor issues that would spoil the book itself but not enough not to complain about here. A very good read imo for any fan of fantasy or fiction.At least try the first book or borrow from your local library to see if you'd enjoy the rest.
