This is the first time I’m going to review a final book in the series and reviewing the entire series. So here it goes

Rating: ★★★★★

1. Story: Michael Scott has given himself a challenge: write a series of 6 books that only happened in the course of less than 10 days. The outcome, a wonderful series called the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel. This series was very-well constructed. There were so many twists and turns here and there, Mr Scott was genius to have crammed them all into 6 books....more

Actual Rating: 4.5 Stars

The Enchantress was a fantastic end to one of my favorite series of all time. The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series has always had a special place in my heart, so while I was sad to see the series end, I must say it ended with a huge bang. This book was definitely my favorite of the entire series!

The Enchantress is different from most young adult books, since it doesn’t focus on romance, rather it focuses on the action. I’m a huge fan of action, I always pref...more

Gosh, so much to say about this book. The ending left me satisfied, but I am so unimpressed by Scott's writing that I will likely never pick up a book of his ever again.

This series fell prey to every fantasy cliche that drives me nuts, starting with Michael Scott trying waaaaay too hard to impress us. In the first two books, we established a hierarchy of immortals, Next Gen, Elder, and Great Elder. But Scott keeps trying to one-up himself - before the Great Elders were Archons, and before them A...more

Alright, so last night I finished reading The Enchantress, by Michael Scott. Last book in the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series. Pure drivel.

Now, I know what you are thinking. "Torry, what do you expect when you read a book meant for children?" Good point, but still, whatever happened to good story telling? None of the characters are believable, the way they transition as the story develops seems contrived, the dialogue is cheesy, the plot nonsensical, and the entire time I feel lik...more

So I just finished reading The Warlock, and what a cliffhanger. Now, I have to wait a year for this. Can't wait.

I've been reading the Nicholas Flamel series since the very beginning. I was ~10 or 11 when the first one came out. I loved it when I read it then, and I love it now. However, now that I am older I love it even more than I ever did then. The sheer amount of research that must have gone into it, the rich life and new mythos that Scott breathes into characters that are so familiar to me through mythology itself...I am absolutely in love with everything about this series. As an aspiring writer myse...more

"When in doubt, we follow our hearts. Words can be false, images and sounds can be manipulated. But this...' He tapped his chest, over his heart. 'This is always true”

Michael Scott. YOU ARE A FREAKING GENIUS!

I cannot BELIEVE what I have just read. I would have never imagined ending the series with that! From the final battle to the end, waves of continuous chills swept through me. It left me breathless. IT WAS THAT EPIC.

A very disappointing end to the series. I must say, over the last few books, the series seemed to be dragging, but knowing there was "just one more book" kept me reading. I was hoping to see a lot of threads tied up and see how everything played out. In summary, I was unimpressed. I don't claim to know what Scott's writing process was like, but from my (reader's) point of view, it seems he was just adding things in here and there trying to make everything make sense, but failing at it. A good se...more

After 6 intense and action packed books, I was really expecting the Enchantress to blow the series out of the water. Unfortunetly, it didn't. The book was incredible and enjoyable, but I expected a bit more because this ending had so much potential. But the good stuff first. I really did love what Scott did with Billy the Kid, Virginia Dare, and Machievelli. I just couldn't imagine Billy being evil, and Machievelli was heading towards the good side throughout the book. Virgini...more

Seeing as how this is the last book in the series, Michael Scott was probably under a lot of pressure to make it end with a BANG. He probably felt that he had to do a GRRM and knock out a whole cast of characters, which he did. It was a fucking massacre. The whole process practically screams "I'm trying too hard!" Perhaps he was just trying to induce some sense of emotional response to the characters' deaths, but meh, I didn't feel anything. Especially considering how cheap he made them feel to...more

It's pretty close to a one star, but I do like some of the characters enough. So who is the Enchantress? I have no idea. It's lovely to title a book something and for a reader to get through it with no idea who the title is referring to. That is not the main problem with this book or series however. It was just too much. Too many characters, too much random story lines. I'm actually not even really sure what the purpose of this entire series was. We already knew what was going to happen in the f...more

Well...The story is finally over and I'm not sure I am pleased with what happened with this story. All of the things that I loved about the first 3 books slowly melted away from the overall story as we got closer and closer to the end. The most disheartening thing, was seeing how Mr. Scott marginalized Nicholas Flamel: the title character of the series. Surely the story was equally about "the twins of legend," but in my opinion, the author became so tangential that it became off-putting.

It is u...more

Five stars for the last book and 10 stars for the serise, books 1-6. I loved it!

This last book wrapped up everything that began in book one and I am almost sorry it is over. I really would love to re-visit some of the characters again. I didn't get enough of them. I really would enjoy hearing more adventures.

I loved Michael Scott's writing style throughout the whole series. He has a wonderful sense of timing and humor in his dialogue. His characters are bigger than life and they love and care a...more

The series is finally over. I was so excited to see the final ending and how it would all come together. At the end of The Warlock, I was concerned that Josh was going to be a bad kid and try to destroy the world, while Sophie would have to stop him in order to save it. But in The Enchantress, that changes. Warning: spoilers ahead!

The story was interesting and engaging until nearly the end. I thought it was interesting that so many elders die in the last book. I thought those guys were suppose...more

I’ve read every book that has been in the Immortal series and every single one gets better and better. I thought this book brought a good ending to the story, tying most things together, but left a little confusion within me. Before finishing the book I didn’t realize this was the finale in the series, and I’m really sad to hear that. It really was a good, captivating, and well written story. The characters are and always have been very diverse and entertaining in their own way. You hope for the...more

Now this is what I call EPIC!

The plot is fast-paced and every characters that have appeared in preceding installments come together in this book. Battle after battle flows together with the plot, which makes this book spellbinding. It got really moving during the battle that I felt sad for some characters. Those who said Battle of Hogwarts is epic should read this book, especially the last chapters where the last battle in Danu Talis occurs, and, whoa, the twist in the end would totally blow you...more

Compared to the rest of the books in the series, this was a definite improvement. In fact, after reading "The Enchantress", I realised that the downfall of this series was in its editing. What could have been finished in three books, was unnecessarily dragged on for six and a lot of the lure of these books was lost on the way.

A whole host of superfluous characters and unnecessary diagloue could have been done away with, and this series would have been among the top books in recent fantasy. But a...more

Such a disappointment. Four books leading up to this. Four books carrying the story of two 15 year-old twins, a boy and a girl, thrust into a non-stop race to save the world and in the end, I'm left with the question: Did they save it.

This book, just like the other four was good, don't get me wrong. It was just as much an exciting read as the other books in this series. The book is well assembled, carrying the plot at a breakneck pace to the conclusion. The characters (considering this is fantas...more

I've got mixed feelings about the final installment of this series. First of all, I think that one of the key themes -- whether humankind is worth saving -- is developed beautifully through the book, and the closer, more intimate look at many of the Elders and their relationships helps to bring this theme to life much more richly. There are some very moving conversations and scenes. However, I still had issues with the pacing -- some scenes moved entirely too quickly, some dragged on for what se...more

I wish I could say that I found this a great ending to a series and a splendid book in itself, but I really can't.

Where I sort of liked the previous novel, which had a good cliffhanger and some interesting twists, this part is just a simple clash between good and evil. All of the good ones are honourable (even ready to die for a cause), whilst those who are bad are overconfident and scurry away like rats when they are no longer winning.

Granted, I did not see the final reveal coming and I was ple...more

In januari 2008 verscheen het eerste deel van de serie, die ik toen vrijwel meteen kocht nadat ik in een tijdschrift een recensie las (zo ging dat nog in die tijd. Kuch kuch). Sindsdien heeft de serie me meegenomen naar een magische wereld vol mythologie en strijd, vol goden en afgoden. Heerlijk vond ik het. Wat mijn bankrekening ook prettig vond is dat er naast een hardcover, ook altijd een paperback verscheen voor een mooi prijsje. Gevolg: de helft van mijn serie is hardcover en de andere helf...more

I'll begin by saying that my low rating of this book has more to do with plot than anything else. My review is probably going to be a bit harsh, so if you loved the Nicholas Flamel series, you're probably going to hate my review.

I want to give a warning that I'm going to give spoilers. So please be prepared if you haven't read this book. Although, just as a friendly comment, I don't know why you'd be reading reviews if you haven't yet read the book. ;p

At this point I'm going to give a few words...more

These books started out fun and entertaining and got more and more hokey all the time. The one before this was pretty outlandish and left me wondering if I really wanted to take the time to read the last - but I had to finish the series.

The last book "The Enchantress" was ridiculous! There were so many plot lines and characters it was impossible to follow. No one and nothing dies until the last 5% of the book . . . and there were hundreds of characters in the middle of a war! This last book came...more

Rating: 2/5

I don’t know why I had to complete the series. I mean, I didn’t like the pacing of the story: breakneck with no character development or at least no meaningful and natural character development. There were too many characters to care about any one of them. Josh annoyed the heck out of me. Sophia was likable but not enough to really care and that’s our two main characters and then Nicholas and Penny (‘m not going to type her whole name as as I’m not going to type the whole names of the...more

The final book in the series is finally here and, I must say, not really worth the wait.

I was disappointed. I had been looking so forward to it and hoped it would be the icing on the cake. It wasn't. It was more like that disappointing crumbled cookie mix between layers. I'm going to try to not include spoilers, but if I do - I apologize.

That being said - it wasn't terrible. It just seemed to go on and on and on. It jumped around so much, due to the characters being in different timelines and lo...more

This was the big defining moment, after years of build up, cliff hangers, and one of the most complex plot lines I've ever read, could Michael Scott bring this story to a satisfying conclusion? Was all my annoyance by the lag between instalments and the big breaks between the cut-throat action worth it? Was there going to be PAY OFF??!!

I have on word for you.
YES.

The Enchantress was everything I had hoped it could be, and then some. Chock full of surprises and satisfying answers it rounded out th...more
