Although this is a negative review, don't get me wrong. I've enjoyed this "Nicholas Flamel" series,
and I'll obviously buy the sixth and final book when it comes out, but this installment, the Warlock,
was a complete bore.

Although I just finished reading it yesterday morning, I'm already having trouble remembering anything
that happened in it - that's how forgettable it is. There are multiple storylines - one for Dee, Dare
and Golden twin, Josh, one for the other twin (sophie) and her aunt and Perrennelle, one for Scathach and her friends lost somewhere in time, one for the Isle of Danu Talis storyline set in the extremely distant past, and then a few other miscellaneous stories involving Mars, Isis and Osris, and others.

None of the storylines are interesting, that's the first problem. The "thrill of the chase" element, present in the earlier books with Flamelle protecting the twins from Dee and miscellaneous demons, is gone in this book. A second problem is that the overarching storyline - this Danu Talis stuff with the Egyptian Gods and some big battle which had members from every ancient civilization present - is really convoluted and confusing. And finally, and sadly, this fifth book really seems like filler and a money-grab.
In theory, if you need a fifth book in a six book series such as this one, the fifth book should be getting all the pieces in place for the hurly-burly action that should be happening in book six. I don't really believe that this happens in the Warlock.

I finished this book and immediately went to the final book. I should have taken some time to write a review since I don't remember to much what happened in this book. I don't recall if things happened in one of the previous books or this last one that I am already partially through. In other words the books are written pretty well the same way that it is hard to get them in the right sequence. The author did finish the book with a cliff hanger that I had not expected.

The teams of characters seem to be all over the place and even worse in time. Not sure what it all has to do with the Twins who are now separated. And where is Flamel? Like the previous books when all these gods and immortals with amazing powers meet in battle, you end up with sword and fist fights and a rare occasional puff of magic. The author is starting to repeat more and more the same comments. It almost looks like that he is trying to create another book for sale before the final book to end the story. But as mentioned before, I am on the final book to find out what happens at the end. I am intrigued about the character with the hooked hand, the Destroyer. Who is he really? Since we are in the time travel scenario, it has to be one of the main characters. But which one?
