This book was quite amazing, some say that normaly second books are the worst when it comes to series but I truly doubt that in this case.
I love the caracter of Nicolas Maquiavelo and all of the fights, I feel like Josh is really starting to get the caracther ark he deservs, while Scatty was great (as always). Sophie is also starting to get a caracther ark, and this book will leave you with even more questions about Nicolas Flamel and Perenelle.
This book was definitly quite unes¡xpected. I really think they could pull of a "turn to the dark side" with Josh. After all One to safe the world and the other to destroy itI'm going to go read the Sorceress.
