TITLE: THE MAGICIAN
AUTHOR: MICHAEL SCOTT
Details: no. 2 The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel
While Perenelle tries to find a way to escape from the Sphinx and Alcatraz in San Francisco, Nicholas and the twins Josh and Sophie find themselves in Paris where they immediately face a new opponent in Nicolo Machiavelli. John Dee is on his way to Paris and when he gets there he and Machiavelli will unleash unimaginable forces on the city.
And while Sophie's awakened powers continue to grow as she learns fire magic, Josh gets ever more jealous of his sister's abilities. And he still hasn't made up his mind about whom to trust; Flamel or Dee?
This is a very imaginative series of books, well researched and very well written. I hope the wait for the third and final book won't be too long.
