That dynamic has changed in the fifth installment, The Warlock. While Sophie remains with the dangerously weak Flamel and his wife Perenelle, Josh has joined their antagonist, Dr. John Dee, now in possession of the formula for immorality that has kept the Flamels alive for hundreds of years. While a group of warriors attempt to destroy Danu Talis—you know it as Atlantis—to help humanity survive, a scourge of monsters is about to be set loose from Alcatraz to destroy everything. Scott’s rich tangle of folklore and history builds toward the conclusion that will come in the sixth and final book—but enjoy this one with the author this week. (Scott Renshaw)
