The Necromancer

Book 4




The fourth book in the New York Times bestselling series sees the dark magic of the Elders pose an even greater threat to Sophie and Josh Newman, who must enter into a war with John Dee and his menagerie of monsters.

Sophie and Josh have returned to San Francisco. They must protect themselves from the Dark Elders, but they've not yet mastered the magic they'll need to do so. Their trust in Nicholas Flamel is shaken, and their friend Scatty is missing. Unbeknownst to the twins, John Dee has amassed an enormous army of foul creatures, with which he plans to battle Nicholas and his wife, Peronelle. In order for his plan to work, he must train a necromancer to raise the Mother of the Gods from the dead. The twins of legend will make the perfect pupils in his diabolical scheme.

Praise for The Necromancer

An excellent addition to the series and moves the story on to a completely different level. By the end of the book everything has changed again and the cliffhanger ending hooks you again and keeps you hanging on desperately for the next book

Andrea Chettle, Fantasy Book Review

Treachery, not trust, propels this dizzying whirl of subplots with an obligatory threat to the universe and a cliffhanging, surprising ending

Mary Shine Thompson, Irish Times
