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.
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

The Enchantress (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel #6), Michael Scott
The Enchantress is the final novel in the six book series, The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel. It was written by Irish author Michael Scott. Enchantress picks up where its predecessor, The Warlock, left off. Two of its central characters, the fifteen-year-old twins, Sophie and Josh Newman, have been re-united after being briefly separated. The twins, along with John Dee and Virginia Dare, go back in time to t

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.

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

A quick review reflecting the whole series...

On the surface, the six books of The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel are fun, fast-paced and make for a perfectly fine YA adventure story. Scott's love (and knowledge) of mythology is clear and engaging, and the incredibly large cast of characters both historical and legendary are sure to encourage a deeper curiosity.

This is a “Chosen One(s)” story line; although the title of the series suggests a focus on Flamel, the story revolves around th

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.

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

Finally, I could move on after I finish reading this last installment of the book series. I was quite surprised that it was Josh and not Sophie who save the modern world and destroyed the Danu Talis. I was really rooting for Sophie to be the chosen one because I don't like Josh's attitude on the 4th and 5th book. But after contemplating on Josh's journey, I think it really suits him to make the biggest sacrifice and become a hero.

Josh experienced a lot of emotions such as anger, jealousy, uncert

My god, what a clusterfuck. I am so unbelievably disappointed in the direction this series has gone, and particularly how it ended. I have no problem with this as a children's series, I am an adult and I love my YA/children's stories, but I'll be damned if my childhood self could keep track of half the shit that's been going on and adding to the massive pile of poop that's been gathering since the second book.

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.

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.

My beloved Immortal , though not in this Shadowrealm now, Suzy..

Remember this epic.. we've started reading last February. about a very strange week in the life of a twin "Josh & Sophie" and the immortal Nicolas Flamel, with bunch of other real life historical and mythology characters such as Shakespeare, Machiavelli and Dr. John Dee...that we've read 3 books of together

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
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

First of all, Michael Scott can not write. If he had written one book, it wouldn't have been such a problem. But as he is writing a series, all his little things he does (his repetition for effect has no effect and it painfully obvious, his imagery drags on and is unhelpful, and his details clash) are incredibly obnoxious. So first of all, bad writing. Yuck.

Second of all (not everyone finds this a problem, but I do) he gets a lot of things wrong. Historical facts, geographical facts, etc. It's c

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

1.5 stars . tldr: so much of this book (this series, really) was just unnecessary filler, predictable, and underwhelming.

the toll of battle is maddeningly inconsistent - 2 earthlords, the most ancient people known to exist (and therefore implied to be the very most powerful who ever lived ever etc) are defeated with literally one hit each (admittedly with a powerful weapon). but some random giant crab takes out 3 people (all of whom are very powerful themselves)? 1 monster might be easily defeat

Such a disappointment. Four books leading up to this. Five 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.

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

After finishing the 5th one in this series yesterday, I wasn't sure if I wanted to delve right into this one, because I was a little disappointed with The Warlock. But I have to admit, I liked the big red bow at the end of this this one. He reigned in the huge cast and everything seemed to be tied up nice and neat.

I liked the writing of Michael Scott. As he kept this series going, he managed to keep it interesting. The whole thing was well done.
