Third in the series, tiring.
I'm well into this book and frankly beginning to tire off the constant name - dropping of famous people who are unbelievably immortal, and the inclusion of every mythological creature you've ever heard of, and some you probably have not. The storyline seems to have stagnated and although I really enjoyed the first two books, now it is beginning to pall. The narrator is excellent, no complaints there! I'm unlikely to buy more in this series.

Narrator mispronounces everything!
What did you like best about The Sorceress? What did you like least?
The story was great - I waited until the last book and bought the whole set of audiobooks to listen to, back-to-back, so I could get the whole story at once. The story is so detailed, it was just too difficult to keep up with reading each book as it came out. But I do love the fact that Michael Scott incorporates characters from mythologies of all cultures and civilizations in this adventure. What I liked least in this installment was the narrator, Paul Boehmer, who apparently knows nothing about mythologies of any culture by his terrible mispronunciations, which, to me, were very annoying and distracting.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I'd have to say my favorite character was Shakespeare - like most of us at some point in life, he made a bad decision once and was misjudged by it for a very long time. He redeemed himself rather well.
What didn’t you like about Paul Boehmer’s performance?
He managed to mispronounce every single god/goddess's name in this! Perhaps I am over-sensitive to this as I am a mythology buff, but narrators should be required to learn how to pronounce the names of the characters in the book they are reading/performing
Could you see The Sorceress being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
I could see the whole Nicholas Flamel series being made into a series of movies like Harry Potter, or a mini-series at the very least. The special effects would be costly, but well worth it, I think.

battle after battle
I loved The Alchemyst and liked The Magician but found The Sorceress rather weak, just battle after battle between not particularly imaginative creatures and the main characters, who seemed to be more carefully drawn in book 1. There are a couple of inconsistencies in the details signifying that perhaps the author wasn't totally paying attention. The narration is somewhat flat and not always true to the text. To write a series requires a commitment this author hasn't really made.
