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

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

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

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

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

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.

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 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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

Well that was ... weird! I feel like the last book and this book could have been condensed into one. The ending felt a little bit rushed, and everything I suspected came true. I am satisfied with the ending, but I do still have some questions. I really enjoyed this series, although I don't think I'd ever read anything else written by Michael Scott, as I did not like his writing style. The story made it awesome, though.
