The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel #4: The Necromancer by Michael Scott

The Necromancer  (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, #4)My name is Perenelle a Flamel. I have lived for almost seven hundred years among the humans, but other immortals also walk the earth, like my husband, Nicholas. We have found the twins of legend, Sophie and Josh, and their powers have been Awakened in order to save all the humani. My husband and I will die within the next two weeks if we can't recover The Codex, but more importantly, we must stop the monsters trapped on Alcatraz from being released and causing havoc in San Francisco. Prometheus teaches Josh the most powerful magic of fire, but something strange is going on. Josh has never fully trusted Nicholas or myself, and I'm not sure what's going on in his mind. Dee seems to have affected Josh, and the Elders now want the evil sorcerer captured for his failings. However, Dee is planning revenge against them, and I suspect the sorcerer is willing to sacrifice Josh's life to achieve it. The survival of all humans is at stake...

You will not like this book if you have not read the other books in the series. It does not have as much action as them, but multiple, major conflicts provide the drama. There are still questions as to which characters are good and which are bad. The Flamels keep secrets from the twins, and Josh tells his sister they can't be trusted. Josh trusts Dee more than them, but Dee also seems to be planning to enslave all humans. Another major bad guy, Machiavellli, may be growing a conscience, and I won't be surprised if he ends up doing something good. The end of the series is coming soon with a huge "flashback" to a battle where the age of humans began.
