After fleeing Ojai, Nicholas, Sophie, Josh, and Scatty emerge in Paris, the City of Lights. Home for Nicholas Flamel. Only this homecoming is anything but sweet. Perenell is still locked up back in Alcatraz and Paris is teeming with enemies. Nicollo Machiavelli, immortal author and celebrated art collector, is working for Dee. He’s after them, and time is running out for Nicholas and Perenell. For every day spent without the Book of Abraham the Mage, they age one year—their magic becoming weaker and their bodies more frail. For Flamel, the Prophesy is becoming more and more clear.

It’s time for Sophie to learn the second elemental magic: Fire Magic. And there’s only one man who can teach it to her: Flamel’s old student, the Comte de Saint-Germain—alchemist, magician, and rock star. Josh and Sophie Newman are the world’s only hope—if they don’t turn on each other first.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 2/20/2014

    " I liked this book. I found it easier to "get into" than the first one, probably because there is now backstory and the characters are more developed. It was a lot of action, and not as predictable as the first book. I look forward to the next installment in the series to see what trouble these characters get into next. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 2/12/2014

    " As the second book in the series it kicks off right where the first one ended. Nicholas and the twins are in paris which is home to numerous dark elders and enemies but Nicholas is able to find saint german and Sophie gets trained in the elemental magic of fire. Josh gets his hands on clarent the sword of fire and twin the excalibre the sword of ice which dee has. As Machiavelli is given orders from his dark elder to capture the twins as dee arrives in paris. The second book in the series is just as good as the first and adds a different way to see mythological history. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsey | 2/4/2014

    " This book is even better than the first. I love the new characters and can't wait to see what Machavelli has up his sleeve. Also while certain parts of the book are certainly predictable there was enough unexpected twists (or just plain lack of the expected) to keep me interested. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dinah | 2/2/2014

    " Quick read. It is OK. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Drew Mc | 2/1/2014

    " A good story, perhaps for a younger reader. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Athornton | 1/24/2014

    " I read the first book in this series for a book club. Not my normal genre of literature but I found it interesting. It is like a mystery, trying to figure out who controls Dee. Plus there is tons of action trying to evade different monsters and characters. I especially like that this book took place in Paris and mentions lots of historical places. Plus, using different characters from history like Macchiavelli and Joan of Arc make it interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Devi Lusyana | 1/21/2014

    " The magician mostly told bout John Dee. Quite fascinating and full of suprise here and there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bocha V. | 1/19/2014

    " El libro supera mucho al primero, y mientras el autor da vida a (la mayoria de)todos los mitos en un contexto "realista", la historia te atrapa, y te llena de dudas a medida que avanza. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jess - The Tales Compendium | 12/18/2013

    " I really really love this series and the magician was just as good as the first, if not better. cant wait for 'the sorceress'. They are such a great mix of mythology, history and present day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiffany Hunt | 12/12/2013

    " A very fun continuation to the adventures of Nicolas, Sophie,Josh, Perenelle, and Scatty. Great new characters really add to the fun. Love the appearance of such historical figures, like Joan of Arc and Machiavelli. Ready for book three! "
