The Warlock

The Newman twins have finally been divided. The end is near. In San Francisco, Josh has chosen a side - and he will not stand with his sister, Sophie, or the Alchemyst, Nicholas Flamel. He has chosen to fight along side John Dee and the mysterious Virginia Dare. Sophie will do anything she can to find her brother, but her training must continue. With Perenelle and Nicholas as weak as they are, Niten must help her to master Earth Magic. Without this, she will fail and the human race will be doomed forever... Can she save the world alone? Fans of the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series will be breathless in anticipation of this thrilling penultimate chapter in Sophie and Josh’s adventures.

Praise for The Warlock

“[Michael Scott is] the King of fantasy”

Irish Times

“The things that make these books thrilling are constant - Michael Scott's intricate grasp of mythology and history, the action-packed plotlines, and his larger-than-life characters. There's enough fantasy, myth, wizardry and adventure to engage young and adult readers alike”

Teresa DiFalco, parents-choice.org

“Highlighted for its combination of "fantasy, history and folklore".”

The Telegraph
