one of the best series I have come across. the use of characters and mythology is amazing and the creativity and detail are sublime. bittersweet as I don't know what to read/listen to next
The whole series was gripping from book one through to the finish. It was a sad feeling to know that after I'd finished the series there was no more. Well written and imaginative.
Have read all 6 books and none have been a let down. The story has excitement all the way what a page turner. Although I found this series of books under teenage and I left that many years ago I found it gripping. Hope that Michael Scott has another story in him. Audible only gave me 5 stars to give the books I would certainly give more. Paul Boehmer as reader was an excellent choice.
"Beautiful end to an incredible story."
Loved it! What an incredible series. The performance of the reading kept me continually engaged. Boehner is fantastic! Absolutely fantastic!
A very fun and exciting read.... I'm hoping there will be more in this series to follow... It's fun to follow the twins... But I guess when it's over, it's over...
"An epic conclusion."
This book was simply amazing and a very stunning conclusion to a series that I found myself addicted to since the first book. I find myself rather melancholy at knowing that this is the last book in the series, but I was pleased with the way it ended.
Many questions had been raised throughout the series, and all of them were answered in this last book. I was not disappointed in the way this book ended at all. I could see myself listening to this series again.
One of my favorite things about this book though was the character development. Throughout the other books, I had always wondered just what would become of some characters. I was shocked several times by the way some characters developed, though it was never a bad shock. All in all, this book was very much worth the money I spent, and the time I took to listen to it. I had a very hard time putting this one down. I was entirely riveted.
"Interesting cast of characters/juvenile prose"
I just finished the series. I had to keep reminding myself that this book is written for teens. The characters are fun to put together (Prometheus and Shakespeare for example).
The whole time loop concept is problematic for any writer and has never been done well by any of them. After all a story is based on the assumption of causation and once you break that assumption it is difficult to care about what happens to a character. If they die in one time line and live is another then why struggle over past events?
The main problem in this book is prose. I thought I might be sick if I heard one more repetition of someone drawing a "deep shuddering breath". all characters are constantly a a point of nervous collapse. The exaggerated emotional state of the characters forced me to keep repeating to myself that this book is written for the adolescent personality. I think the author should give the young reader more credit and apply a bit more subtlety.
My wife and I eventually finished the book only because we had read the others and wanted to see how things worked out.
If I had it to do over again I would not have started this series.
"A Staggering Disappointment"
You know, you listen to five books, to the adventures, the twists and the turns and sometimes you just want to scream at the author at the sixth. I could not have believed that Scott would finish in such a poor, unenlightened, uninspired way. I am heartsick with disappointment. If that is not enough, the ending just doesn’t hold with the universe that Scott himself created begging numerous questions and leaving unforgivable gaffs. Just too bad!
I am really disappointed in the last volume of this series. I barely finished it. Sad, too, because I had enjoyed the previous volumes. The plot just breaks down.
"5 Stars All The Way!"
This was an amazing way to end a phenomenal series. Lots of twists and revelations appear to Sophie and Josh in this final installment of "The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel" series. It was truely one of the best series that I've ever read.
"Great Book Great Series!!"
Terrible Narrator! The series itself is fun, the end is a bit underwhelming, and leaves some plot holes. But overall it's a good book. The narrator should have been check he mispronounces everything and his accents are terrible!
"It's over? Yay!!"
This series started off strong and then ran out of gas two books ago. A creative ending to an average series.
"a journey that lasts a little to long."
It was a great story in all, it was a little redundant , but great over all. The ending could have been a little better in my opinion .
