Waiting for Wednesday

The Waiting on Wednesday idea came from Jill at Breaking the Spine and as I was thinking about all the fabulous books I'm waiting not very ptiently for, I realized it was obvious which book I had to talk about this week, given our free download special.

So yes, I'm waiting and waiting for The Sorceress by Michael Scott. The third in the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series. Nicholas Flamel's heart almost broke as he watched his beloved Paris crumble before him. The city was destroyed by Dee and Machiavelli, but Flamel played his own role in the destruction. Sophie and Josh Newman show every sign of being the twins of prophecy, and Flamel had to protect them and the pages from the Dark Elders.

But Nicholas grows weaker with each passing day. Perenelle is still trapped in Alcatraz, and now that Scatty has gone missing, the group is without protection. Except for Clarent — the twin sword to Excalibur. But Clarent’s power is unthinkable, its evil making it nearly impossible to use without its darkness seeping into the soul of whoever wields it.

If he hopes to defeat Dee, Nicholas must find an Elder who can teach Josh and Sophie the third elemental magic — Water Magic. The problem? The only one who can do that is Gilgamesh, and he is quite, quite insane.

It is such a good series. May 26th just can't come soon enough for me.

Yes it is. As you can see from my previous post, Kepler's was one of the bookstores hosting this free download but I've been having trouble making this work. But you can certainly get it from other bookstores sites and it is so worth it. It's a great series.
