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.

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.

Narrator mispronounces everything!

What did you like best about The Sorceress? What did you like least?

The story was great - I waited until the last book and bought the whole set of audiobooks to listen to, back-to-back, so I could get the whole story at once. The story is so detailed, it was just too difficult to keep up with reading each book as it came out. But I do love the fact that Michael Scott incorporates characters from mythologies of all cultures and civilizations in this adventure. What I liked least in this installment was the narrator, Paul Boehmer, who apparently knows nothing about mythologies of any culture by his terrible mispronunciations, which, to me, were very annoying and distracting.


Who was your favorite character and why?

I'd have to say my favorite character was Shakespeare - like most of us at some point in life, he made a bad decision once and was misjudged by it for a very long time. He redeemed himself rather well.


What didn’t you like about Paul Boehmer’s performance?

He managed to mispronounce every single god/goddess's name in this! Perhaps I am over-sensitive to this as I am a mythology buff, but narrators should be required to learn how to pronounce the names of the characters in the book they are reading/performing


Could you see The Sorceress being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

I could see the whole Nicholas Flamel series being made into a series of movies like Harry Potter, or a mini-series at the very least. The special effects would be costly, but well worth it, I think.
