Overview

The Necromancer (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel #4) by Michael Scott

Nicholas Flamel appeared in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter—but did you know he really lived? And he might still be alive today! Discover the truth in Michael Scott’s New York Times bestselling series the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel with The Necromancer, book four. 

   Sophie and Josh Newman are finally home, but they're both more confused than ever about their future. Neither of them has mastered the magics they'll need to protect themselves from the Dark Elders, they've lost Scatty, and they're still being pursued by Dr. John Dee. Most disturbing of all, however, is that now they must ask themselves, can they trust Nicholas Flamel? Can they trust anyone?

Unrelenting forward momentum….This book will thrill fans.”—School Library Journal

I loved reading this wonderful book! It is a story that keeps you entertained for hours.

I was in anticipation for the fourth installment of the The Series of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, and was correct in thinking that this book would not be what I expected. In fact it was greater than what I was expecting! The characters of Sophie and Josh make for quite the drama and actually had me siding with Josh's decision in the end. Although I would have rather if he teamed up with Machiavelli instead of (insert name here after reading the book). But that is just my opinion. Anyway, the story keeps you on the edge of the seat and really makes the reader ask the question, "Who do I trust?". The cast of imaginative characters creates this feel of a real adventure that is about to unfold right before your very eyes. I recommend this book to all who enjoy some fantasy, some action, and a whole lot of "everything but the kitchen sink"!

It's almost like an exotic fruit. We've never encountered anything like this book before and is packed full of thrills, mysteries, and a mouthful of suspense. Keep conjuring up those books Michael Scott.

I started reading this book, and I noticed something. These books are so thoroughly intertwined that you have to remember almost every single name, date, or character. (I didn't) There are so many references to the other books, and mythologies. That's not a complaint! Also, the book is full of suspense, and ominous hints of doom and the end of the world. This book is a good read with lots of stopping points, and nice, short chapters. Most likely I will read the other three again, and then see how good a book it really is. Although clearly not a stand alone novel, The Necromancer is a great book. I would highly recommend this book for all those who have read, and enjoyed The Alchemyst, The Magician, and The Sorceress.

Wow...again...Another amazing addition to this series. I remember walking into B&N a few years ago looking for something interesting to read...and what caught my eye? the first of this series. I was hooked after the first few pages of that book. And the second and third were no different. This was a novel I waited on for an entire year to come out. And after rushing to B&N on the 25th when it came out, I couldn't put it down. It was a great read, action and suspense around every turn. And I can't wait for the next installment.

I have loved this series thus far - but this book seemed determined to get the reader only as far as "to be continued." As with "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One," (the movie) the ending does not seem to stand on its own.

Michael Scott's "Necromancer" is a wonderful continuation of his "Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel" series. Scott manages to keep the rapid pace of his series going in this fourth installment of the series. The action scenes are even more fast-paced, if that is possible, and ensnare the reader thoroughly. While Scott's writing style is geared more toward the teen to young-adult audience, there is still much for older adults to like in this book as well. Scott, with his extensive background knowledge of mythology and folklore, manages to spin a tale which takes a vast array of mythological material and not only combine all these ideas into a coherent story, but actually manage to make the reader feel as if this tale could actually take place in the real world. While Scott takes liberties in his recreation of these myths, he still preserves enough of the history to pique an adult's interest. The only drawback that I see to Scott's writing is that his character development is sketchy. While the reader gets background information on all the characters, it seems that further development, from an emotional standpoint, is necessary to completely explain some of the actions in this story. For instance, without giving away any of the plot, there is a surprising twist right at the end of this book that makes absolutely no sense, given what we know of the characters involved. On the contrary, this decision seems completely the opposite of what it should have been. In this one case, it felt as if Scott was simply looking for a way to extend the series further. Altogether, "Necromancer", and the series as a whole, is a must-read for anyone young at heart who believes that there is at least a shred of truth in the ghost stories we tell our children. This book is completely engaging, true to itself, and virtually impossible to put down.

Sophie and Josh return home, unsure what to tell their Aunt about their adventures of the past few days. They certainly can't tell her the truth. As they walk up the road, they notice a car outside the house. Curious and hesitant, they approach the car. A woman exits and they believe it's someone they know. However, almost too late, they realize it's an identical twin. Sophie ends up kidnapped and Josh left scrambling behind. In order to save his sister, he travels back to the start of their adventure, the Flamels. Once he confides in them, they quickly follow after Sophie. The Flamels don't have much time and they have already decided to fight before things spiral too far out of control, even though it might be the last thing they accomplish. They find Sophie and those watching over her. Together, they come up with a plan of attack. Before they can accomplish their goals, they request someone to awake the fire powers in Josh. He readily agrees to the plan, already feeling inferior to his twin. However, the Flamels didn't consider Dr. Dee in their planning. While his masters aren't pleased with his failures, Dr. Dee always has a plan. This plan includes taking over the world, but he needs Josh in order to set his plan in motion. Will Josh cross over to the other side and leave his twin and the Flamels behind? The fourth book in this wonderful series won't disappoint fans with its magic, history, mythology, clever characters, evil plots, and strong sibling bonds. THE SECRETS OF THE IMMORTAL NICHOLAS FLAMEL is addicting and will leave readers on the edge of their seats.

I'll be honest; I have not read the first three books of this series. I'll be honest again; I loved this book. I plan on getting the first three as soon as possible so that I can read up on how the story got to where it is (although Michael Scott does an awesome job of setting things up so you can pretty much figure out where everyone stands and how they got there). Easily comparable to the Harry Potter books (you may remember Nicholas Flamel as the original owner of the Sorcerer's Stone in the first book), but don't be confused. Nicholas Flamel was a real person and this series in no way ties into the wizarding world of Harry Potter. Throughout the book, there are several different story lines that all work together to create a dynamic and suspenseful plot. The twins, Josh and Sophie, are trying so hard to hone their skills and learn all they can, while at the same time trying to figure out which side is the "good" side in the epic battle that is inevitably coming. The Necromancer leaves off in a real cliff-hanger and I really cannot wait for the next book to come out next year. It's going to be a long wait. If you enjoyed Harry Potter or any other fantasy or young adult fiction, you will likely enjoy The Necromancer as much as I did.

After finishing the third book in the series, I started flipping out, I WANTED THE FOURTH BOOK!!!!!! Michael Scott did it again!!!! The  local library didn't carry the fifth book in the series, and since I moved to Europe, it would take a while for the book to get here. I'm very, very,  very disappointed. This book was amazing and I can't wait for the next one!

This book was freat and had a good summary. The beginning really pulls you in from the beginning. When you finish one book,the author leaves you hanging on a cliffhanger, and you just want to get your haands on the next book.

When I first read the title of the first book, I never knew that the book would be that amazing, I always read it when I need to get away from everyday things and for fun. This book is very well written, I love the way were each paragraph changes characters, for example, one paragraph is about Nicholas then the next one is about Sophie, I think that that kind of writing leaves a mystery and a hunger for the reader to read more and more.
