the secrets of the immortal nicholas flamel #5
In the fifth installment of this bestselling series, the twins of prophesy have been divided, and the end is finally beginning.
With Scatty, Joan of Arc, Saint Germain, Palamedes, and Shakespeare all in Danu Talis, Sophie is on her own with the ever-weakening Nicholas and Perenelle Flamel. She must depend on Niten to help her find an immortal to teach her Earth Magic. The surprise is that she will find her teacher in the most ordinary of places.
Ok. First of all there are too many characters. Let's make a list, shall we?
- Joan of Arc
- St. Germain
- John Dee
- Tsagaglalal <---which a="" be="" li="" name="" really="" shouldn="" t=""> ---which>
- Virginia Dare
- Billy the Kid
- Mars Ultor
- Black Hawk
And it is so goddamn boring.
Can we just be done already? Can we just kill off John Dee and Josh and be done with it? Maybe? Yes?
The only person I really care about at all is Machiavelli. I liked him from the beginning and was kind of bummed that he was evil, but he's evil in a subtle way. I like Scatty & Joan of Arc too I suppose, but they're getting the raw end of the deal.
The four main characters, Josh, Sophie, Nicholas & Perenelle are my least favorite. How does that happen?
