THE WARLOCK: This is the fifth book in the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel and like the others before, is a roller-coaster ride with action galore. The author, Michael Scott, is an authority on mythology and folklore, and his books are full of characters like Isis, Osiris, Scathach, Palamedes, Joan of Arc, Machiavelli and Shakespeare - even Billy the Kid is along for the ride. This is a fun read, and as usual, the ending has you anxiously awaiting a sequel as the heroes are running out of time.
THE CURSE OF DEADMAN'S FOREST by Victoria Laurie: This is the second book in the Oracles of Delphi Keep series and like the first book in the series, brings back Ian Wigby and his sister Theodosia. Their adventures started when they explored the tunnels beneath the White Cliffs of Dover and soon they were traveling far beyond the orphanage in England. In this sequel, they travel to Spain and a cursed forest in Germany through a magic portal, seeking other Oracles to defeat a growing evil. There are three Oracles now, and the children need to gather three more to be successful,so the adventures will continue.
