The Enchantress by Michael Scott
Nicholas and Perenelle Flamel have one day left to live, and they must make the most of it by completing this final task. They must defend San Francisco, which has just recently been overrun by monsters and demons. The monsters, which have been captured and held in cells, will soon be released into the city. If the beasts do not get stopped, they will kill everyone and destroy everything in their path. Luckily, the beasts do get stopped when Nicholas and Perenelle finally use their auras, which they have been saving and rarely using for such an occasion.
The author did set out what he wanted to do. At the end of the fifth book, the author ended in a cliffhanger, as well as leaving many loose ends that need to be tied, which he did do perfectly in the sixth book, The Enchantress. The plot and flow of the novel felt a bit rigid, as the point of view got jumped around in the chapters of the novel, as well as the chapters themselves. The author clearly did some research on famous figures in history, and did an amazing job of implementing said characters into his novel, and giving them some actual important parts, instead of just being fill-in characters. This book appeals to people who enjoy science fiction, as the book deals with magic, warlocks, immortality, as well as demons, and this book would also appeal to people who enjoy history, as the book takes in some famous figures in history and implements them into the storyline. This book appeals to both middle and high school audiences, the book has simple language, with some bigger words sprinkled in there. Lyonel L.; Teen Reviewer
