Revealing Flamel’s immortal secrets on Wikipedia

The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series coversI do not edit my wiki page.  It is managed by the good people at Flamel’s Immortal Portal and the associated Fan Forum, which is the only official fan site and the one I visit every day.  The Portal and Forum act as a gathering place and discussion ground for fans.  It is moderated of course, and completely child friendly.  It is safe to say that the moderators know as much about the books as I do

Michael’s Recent Updates

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
Michael Scott, The Warlock

“OK," Josh said evenly, "I've seen men made of mud, I guess I can accept spying rats. Do they talk?" he wondered aloud.
Don't be ridiculous," Flamel snapped, "They're rats."
Josh really didn't think it was a ridiculous suggestion.”
Michael Scott, The Alchemyst

“The strong survive, but the courageous triumph.”
Michael Scott, The Warlock

Rustin Petrae Thanks for adding me as a friend. I am just about to finish up The Warlock. Great book. I really like how you seamlessly melded all the world's myths together and made it make sense.

Michelle Sedai of the Brown Ajah I finished The Enchantress yesterday, and I must say it was a wonderful conclusion to the series, though a very bittersweet one! :) I'm very glad I've had the opportunity to read your books, they are all wonderful!
