This is a great book but as a note the the author: it is tated on the bottom of page 280 in the enchantress that Palamedes was at the graden party in San Francisco, and recieved a emerald tablet, when he was in fact on the opposite side of the world in London trying to find Scathach and Joan of Arc. Otherwise the book series is great. Just this one bit of info that was slightly annoying.

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (2):

It's almost shocking how so many moving parts come together so well in the end -- and it's all pretty satisfying, too. Series fans have been waiting for the monsters on Alcatraz to come out of their cages since Perenelle was imprisoned there -- was it way back at the end of Book 2? Here they come, in the final Book 6, grossly outnumbering a wild assortment of characters (Billy the Kid, Machiavelli, Black Hawk, Odin, Hel, the Flamels), their diverse magical and godly talents making the fight to the finish one surprise after another. And the extreme creep factor of Quetzalcoatl's "evil twin" running the show is a very nice touch.

The surprises also keep coming in the other storylines (which irksomely change from one to the next every chapter). Big secrets come to light about the twins, their parents, and the orchestrations of Abraham the Mage. The only thing that stands out as strange: The twins' story doesn't dominate, as you might expect in a young-adult series. Every one of Scott's key fascinating characters plays a part here and gets a truly grand send-off.
