The Sorceress by Michael Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
As the third installment of "The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel", "The Sorceress" delivers more action, characters, and plot twists. The story begins with Pernelle still on Alcatraz while Nicholas and the twins look for help in London. Scott manages to develop the main characters even more in this novel - we learn about past twins, Elders, and those who came before the Elders. We learn that Pernelle has a reputation (which buys her a bit of breathing room).
The action moves along at a steady pace in the novel as well, though not so fast as to lose the reader.
I want to say more, but I do not want to spoil anything for readers of this series. I will say that you need to read the first two books first, as much of this novel will not make sense without the background.
