The Warlock by Michael Scott

Subtitle:  The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel.  Sophie and Josh are off on another adventure and fleeing from danger again.

Delacorte Press Books published this book at the end of May and sent me a copy for review (thank you).  This is the fifth book in the series.  It's written for ages 12 and up.

This series is fascinating.  The author mixes mythological characters with historical and contemporary characters.  The story flows from present time to the past.  Everyone's motives are murky and the bad guys can't even trust each other.  The twins, Sophie and Josh, get separated and align with different factions of the ongoing war.

The story is tense, fast flowing, and complicated.  With magic, insanity and evil all happening at the same time, you have to pay attention every moment's events.

The last book will come out next year, and it appears it may turn into a stand off between Sophie and Josh.  I'll just have to wait until then to see how Mr. Scott finishes his story, but I'm hoping it isn't sad.

Here is a link to the website that will tell more about the author, the series and this book:

Why not pick up a copy now and read the new installment in the twins of prophecy lives?  

Happy reading!
