Review: "The Necromancer" by Michael Scott

The Necromancer  (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, #4)The Necromancer by Michael Scott
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

"The Necromancer" continues the adventures of the twins, Josh and Sophie, as time runs out before the end of the world. I will limit my detailed comments about the story so as not to spoil it for anyone. But I am including my general comments.

Pros: I love how the characters develop. Both the twins, Dee, Machiavelli, and the Flamels grow in this book. Even characters who appear for a chapter or two are not two-dimensional. Michael Scott knows his characters. I also love the plot twists. Foreshadowing prepares the reader for some of the action, but even then I felt a bit surprised at the ending.

Cons: The biggest con would be that this is not a stand alone book. You need to read the first three books in this series, or you will be lost. Now, I love reading series so this is not a problem for me. But if someone finds this book first, she needs to find "The Alchemist" and begin reading there.

Overall, "The Necromancer" is another solid book from Michael Scott. Now, to next book!
