the cool thing about this book is that the symbol on the cover hints to plot of the story. It has historical characters that I really enjoyed.

Perenelle Flamel is still trapped on Alcatraz in San Francisco, and as if having the deadly magic-sucking Sphinx hunting her down isn’t bad enough, Billy the Kid has arrived with reinforcements. However, the bad guys seem to have underestimated the Sorceress. She has had a little time to recharge her powers, and is ready and waiting for whatever he brings her way. But the Crow Goddess and the Old Man in the Sea are the ones coming for her. They could be trouble. Especially if they unleash the bizarre army of monsters locked in the cells of Alcatraz Prison.
Nicholas Flamel has traveled to London with the twins. Both of them have had their powers awakened, and their gold and silver auras are the strongest and purest anyone has ever seen. Sophie has already been trained in both the Magic of the Wind and the Magic of Fire. Josh, however, is still powerless and a bit jealous of his sister. The goal is to have Gilgamesh the King train them in the Magic of Water. The only problem is, the last time Flamel and Gilgamesh talked, the King tried to kill him. All their hope lies in the crazed mind of the oldest being alive. And Machiavelli is hot on their trail. If Gilgamesh can’t help them, then they might be stuck without options. The Flamels are aging faster with each day and desperately need to find the Book of Abraham the Mage or they’ll die.
The Sorceress is an exciting novel. The third installment in the Nicholas Flamel series, it introduces several new characters, and is full of action and surprising twists. Not a boring read by any means!

Finally! This book is the best one so far. I have been waiting and waiting for Perenelle to play a bigger role I the story. She is one of the best characters in the book. I can't stand nicholas's whining all the time! Lots of action. This book made me want to read more!

At the end of each chapter the author changes perspectives which builds the suspense and i love that about this series. This series gets better every chapter.

The Third book getting deeper into the tale of Nicholas Flamel and the Twins. Another brilliant page turner.

Perenelle
Jul 08, 2013

The twins of legend have both been Awakened, and Sophie now possesses the two elemental magics of Fire and Air. Now Nicholas Flamel must bring them from a destroyed Paris to England to seek Gilgamesh the King, who can teach them the magic of Water. However the twins are starting to wonder whether Flamel is really to be trusted - especially since he omitted to tell them that Gilgamesh was quite, quite insane.
