The Prophecy Fulfilled

The Warlock begins where The Necromancer left off. Sophie and Josh are divided after a misunderstanding that fulfills an ancient prophecy. Sophie is working alongside Nicholas and Perenelle Flamel whose long lives are quickly coming to an end. Meanwhile, Josh is in the hands of Virginia Dare and the untrustworthy Mr. Dee. Both twins know that one is destined to save the world and the other to destroy it. But neither knows which side they’re on. While both want to be the hero that saves the world, they don’t want their twin to be responsible for the destruction.

Danu Talis

Time and space do not exist in a linear pattern. That’s why the greats like Shakespeare, Saint-Germain and Joan of Arc have been sent back in time to destroy the island of Danu Talis (a.k.a Atlantis). Only its destruction will preserve the world as it is now. But not everyone in this humungous cast of characters thinks that taking down Danu Talis is the way to go.

The Bottom Line

The cover of The Warlock, like the other books in this series, is enticing and inviting. But the story inside requires dedicated readers who can absorb a lot of information. The series unites mythological gods and creatures with many of the Greats in history. But with sooo many characters, it can be an overwhelming mouthful if you’re starting with book five. Our suggestion? Begin with book one, The Alchemist, and get to know the characters from the beginning.
