Reading Level:Young Adult

The sixth and final book in the New York Times bestselling series The Secrets of the Nicholas Flamel—The Enchantress
The two that are one must become the one that is all. One to save the world, one to destroy it.
Nicholas and 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 even with the help of two of the greatest warriors from history and myth, will the Sorceress and the legendary Alchemyst be able to defend the city? Or is it the beginning of the end of the human race?
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’s 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?
When I try to come up with a word to describe this series amazing is the only thing I can think of. These books are all so well written. The characters are amazing and the storyline is unbelievable. It's hard to believe everything is real. I think I'm going to spend hours googling these characters. I can't believe such an amazing series has come to an end.
It would be really hard to include all the amazing characters in my review. I'm only going to talk about Sophie and Josh. I do think you should know there are many fascinating characters.
One of my favorite parts about Sophie and Josh is that their siblings(maybe). There's a ton of sibling rivalry. I love how they both have their own strengths and weaknesses. Of course one gets their powers forcing the other to consider the dark side. I love how they really joined together in this. I also like how they weren't going to let themselves be controlled. They both knew they had their own part to play in the world. I never would have guessed it was going to end like that for them. It was a major shocker. Honestly I think this author is a pro at killing people. I wonder if authors enjoy plotting all these huge battles and wars. I think I would :).
One of the coolest parts of this series is that it all takes place in the time span of a week. That is the coolest thing ever. All that action packed into a week. Also all the auras were pretty cool and the magic. Overall this was an amazing conclusion. I'm so sad it's over. I don't think I can even explain how epic these books are so I'm just gonna tell you to read them. If you chose not to listen to me I will happily hunt you down and force you :). 5/5 stars
