This is the second book of the Nicholas Flamel series and I was not disappointed. The twins, Sophie and Josh, are still being hunted by Dr. John Dee and are still trying to awaken Josh’s hidden powers. They are now in Paris trying to find any type of help they can while trying to keep the remaining two pages of the codex out of the hands of the Dark Elders. They are constantly on the lookout for evil gods and monsters while questioning Nicholas Flamels motives, and searching for Nicholas’s wife Perenelle. This is a really great series. I love how the author draws popular characters out of the different mythologies and legends of the world.
