Book #1- The Enchantress

Title- The Enchantress
Author- Michael Scott
Series- Book 6 in The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel
Genre- Fantasy
Pages- 513
Pages to date- 513

The Good:
The first five books of the series opened up many questions, and this one succeeded in answering every single one. What I enjoyed most what that the ending, unlike so many children's books, was not predictable at all. In retrospect I realized the author did drop some hints, but they were subtle enough to keep the conclusion a surprise.

The Bad (spoiler alert):
The book revealed that Aoife was rescued, but didn't catalog the actual event, which was a bit disappointing.
Much of this series took place in big U.S. cities, but most of this book takes place in the fallen city of Danu Talis. This makes it lose a bit of reader connectivity, but fans of the series won't be too jarred by it.
I am still wondering who the titular enchantress is. In all the previous books, the title character was easily identifiable. I wish this one was similar in that vein.

The Verdict:
The Enchantress is a great ending to a great series that will please any fan of the previous books and leave no question unanswered.
