Breaking the Spine to give we read-a-holic bloggers some real estate to devote to books we're pining away for.
This week's installment is a book that is finishing out a series that I started about two years ago. The Enchantress is the last of six books in the The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series. The main characters - Nicholas Flamel, his wife Perry, brother and sister duo Sophie and Josh, and head baddie John Dee - were introduced in the first book, The Alchemyst. The books have gotten progressively darker and more complicated. And, the fifth in the series, The Warlock, ended with a bang and a BIG cliffhanger.
Although I'm looking forward to reading this book and finishing up the series, I'm also glad it's ending. I haven't been thrilled with the direction the series has headed. There's no wonder or joy left at all. It's become a really depressing story. A satisfying and happy ending is what I'm hoping for here. I sincerely hope Michael Scott comes through for me.
