The Enchantress (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel #6)
By Michael Scott

4 out of 5

This is the concluding book to what has been an epic tale. Dee has taken Sophie and Josh back in time 10,000 years to the day Danu Talis fell. There they meet Dee's Elders, Isis and Osiris, who just happen to be Sophie and Josh's parents! Isis and Osiris want Sophie and Josh to take their rightful place as rulers of Danu Talis and follow Isis and Osiris's plan of action. But what if Sophie and Josh have different plans? And what of the prophecy, one to save the world, one to destroy it? Elsewhere, Scathach, Prometheus, Palamedes, Shakespeare, Saint-Germain, and Joan of Arc also find themselves on the day Danu Talis fell. They work to help bring Danu Talis down, but at what cost to them? Back in present day, San Francisco, the Flamels are stuck on Alcatraz with an island full of deadly monsters. With the help of Niten, Prometheus, Billy the Kid, Machiavelli, Hel, Odin and Mars, will they be able to contain and defeat the monsters on the island, or will they fail and the monsters ravage the city?

What a conclusion to this tale! There were a few books in the middle of this story which, in my opinion, were dragging on. But now I realized how important every little boring detail was. The ending, which was amazing, answered all questions and lived beyond my expectations. Up until it happens, I never saw the twist coming, and that's just how I like it. Many people died, but their deaths were justified, and they died with honor, every single one! What a great way to end this series!
