The two that are one must become the one that is all.  One to save the world, one to destroy it.

San Francisco:
Nicholas & Perenelle Flamel have one day left to live and one job left to do.  They must defend San Francisco.  The monsters gathered on Alcatraz Island have been released and are heading toward the city.  If they are not stopped they will destroy everyone and everything in their path.

But every with the help of two of the greatest warriors from history and myth, will the Sorceress and the legendary Alchemyst be able to defend they city?  Or is it the beginning of the end of the human race?

Danu Talis:
Sophie and Josh Newman traveled ten thousand years into the past to Danu Talis when they followed Dr. John Dee and Virginia Dare.  And it' on this legendary island that the battle for the world begins and ends.

Scathach, Prometheus, Palamedes, Shakespeare, Saint-Germain and Joan of Arc are also on the island.  And no one is sure what - or who - the twins will be fighting for.

Today the battle for Danu Talis will be won or lost.
But will the twins of legend stand together?
Or will they stand apart -
one to save the world and one to destroy it?

Even that synopsis above was annoying.

Well, I'm not very happy with this whole series.  It started out promising, but then went downhill pretty quickly until we got to this final installment.  Like the book before this there were just too many characters, too many things happening all at once and that made it so difficult to keep track of what was going on.


There was so much death and not enough conclusion.  Are we just to believe that time keeps running around in this circle, the events just destined to repeat themselves again and again?  I knew who Marethyu was, there could really only be one person so that revelation wasn't very exciting.  What I really wanted to know was what happened to Aoife?  Obviously, she's saved because of the last two lame sentences in the book, but that must've been quite an adventure.

I don't know.  I just don't like books where the end is the same as the beginning.  What was the point of that?!
