Publisher's Summary

Nicholas Flamel's heart almost broke as he watched his beloved Paris crumble before him. The city was destroyed by Dee and Machiavelli, but Flamel played his own role in the destruction. Sophie and Josh Newman show every sign of being the twins of prophecy, and Flamel had to protect them and the pages from the Dark Elders.But Nicholas grows weaker with each passing day. Perenelle is still trapped in Alcatraz, and now that Scatty has gone missing, the group is without protection. Except for Clarent, the twin sword to Excalibur. But Clarent's power is unthinkable, its evil making it nearly impossible to use without its darkness seeping into the soul of whoever wields it.If he hopes to defeat Dee, Nicholas must find an Elder who can teach Josh and Sophie the third elemental magic - Water Magic. The problem? The only one who can do that is Gilgamesh, and he is quite, quite insane.

Narrator leaves a lot to be desired

Why oh why do they change narrators in a book series? Just when you get used to a style, a cadence, a tone of voice, there's a new one to get used to. And this guy, is just ssssllloooowwwww. He seems to always be deliberately slowing down his speech patterns. He speeds up a bit, catches himself and slows down again. The second book was wonderful. It was fast paced and exciting and the excitement came through in the voice of the narrator. This guy is putting me to sleep! I am so disappointed that he is the narrator for the next book as well, I will have to switch to the print version and I'm sad.

battle after battle

I loved The Alchemyst and liked The Magician but found The Sorceress rather weak, just battle after battle between not particularly imaginative creatures and the main characters, who seemed to be more carefully drawn in book 1. There are a couple of inconsistencies in the details signifying that perhaps the author wasn't totally paying attention. The narration is somewhat flat and not always true to the text. To write a series requires a commitment this author hasn't really made.
