This is the second book in the "Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel" Series
Nick, Sophie, Josh and Scatty have escaped Dr. John Dee by following ley lines to Paris, Flamel's home. They are headquartered in the home of St. Germain and Joan of Arc. Josh is given a sword and the final pages of the book that Dee covets. They must try to escape Dee and his minions while planning to get back the book. Josh's powers are at least partially awakened while the group battle their enemies and escape once again. This is a fun action adventure fantasy that reads fast and I enjoyed. Flamel's wife temporarily imprisoned on Alcatraz has her own exciting adventures and appears will soon be rejoining Flamel and the rest.
