Finishing off last week with the final installment of Lauren Kate’s Fallen series, RAPTURE, I am moving onto Michael Scott‘s final book in the Secrets of The Immortal Nicholas Flamel series, The Enchantress.
I have loved this series from the beginning and am both excited and sad to see it end.
The two that are one must become the one that is all. One to save the world, one to destroy it.
Nicholas and Perenelle Flamel have one day left to live, and one job left to do. They must defend San Francisco. The monsters gathered on Alcatraz Island have been released and are heading toward the city. If they are not stopped, they will destroy everyone and everything in their path.
But even with the help of two of the greatest warriors from history and myth, will the Sorceress and the legendary Alchemyst be able to defend the city? Or is it the beginning of the end of the human race?
Sophie and Josh Newman traveled ten thousand years into the past to Danu Talis when they followed Dr. John Dee and Virginia Dare. And it’s on this legendary island that the battle for the world begins and ends.
Scathach, Prometheus, Palamedes, Shakespeare, Saint-Germain, and Joan of Arc are also on the island. And no one is sure what—or who—the twins will be fighting for.
Today the battle for Danu Talis will be won or lost.
But will the twins of legend stand together?
Or will they stand apart—
one to save the world and one to destroy it?

This week on Road Trip Wednesday, YA Highway asks the question:
What’s the best book you’ve read in February?
Hm … All of the books I’ve read in the month of February were great. I started off the month with Suzanne Collin’s THE HUNGER GAMES series, finished Lauren Kate’s FALLEN series with RAPTURE, read The 19th Year series, AFTER DARK and the sequel, DAY AFTER by Emi Gayle–both awesome–and I rounded out the month with Michael Scott’s final book in The Secrets of The Immortal Nicholas Flamel series, THE ENCHANTRESS. Lucky for me, my line edits haven’t begun on TIED, so I’ve had more free time to read everyone else’s stuff for a change.
There were two books I gave 5 Stars to in February — well, one book actually and one series of books.
THE HUNGER GAMES series by Suzanne Collins was truly an incredible, pull-you-in-and-refuse-to-let-you-go story, and for that reason, it was my favorite series for the month of February.
BUT … DAY AFTER by Emi Gayle, was my favorite book for the month.
Both of these reads, although YA, are completely different and therefore can’t really be compared against each other. Dystopian vs Urban Fantasy. I am, and have always been, the biggest fantasy fan, and DAY AFTER delivered for me in that category. It’s not due for official release until May, though, and you’ll have to read AFTER DARK first, too! 😉
So, you guys? Favorite books for February?

I read all the time.
And the books I love, I read over and over again. It’s par for the
course I assume. One of my favorite authors is Michael
Scott. The Secrets of The Immortal Nicholas Flamel series
is wonderful. Full of rich history embedded in to a fantastical
fictional world. It’s this weaving of history and fantasy that I so
relish in writers. It’s not a common gift unfortunately, so when I
happen to run across these types of authors I am thrilled.
Mythology for me is simply magical and Scott is a master in this
genre. I find myself getting lost in what the past may have been
like here on Earth.
Wondering how all these incredibly unbelievable myths can really be
so unbelievable. I find myself moving in to these other worlds with
ease and not wanting to leave. The Necromancer, the fourth book in the series, I am sad to
say I have not yet read but am anxiously admiring the book cover and know like all those before it, it will have a
lasting place on my overly full shelves. I will not be able to put
this book down until it has been read cover to cover and cover to
cover again. Kudos to Mr. Scott and Thank you for sharing your
