Excerpts-

  • From the book The anpu appeared first, tall jackal-headed warriors with solid red eyes and saber-teeth, wearing highly polished black glass armor. They poured out of a smoking cave mouth and spread around Xibalba, some taking up positions in front of each of the nine gates that opened into the enormous cave, others sweeping through the primitive Shadowrealm, ensuring that it was empty. As always, they moved in complete silence; they were mute until the final moments before they charged into battle, and then their screams were terrifying.

    Only when the anpu were satisfied that Xibalba was deserted did the couple appear.

    Like the anpu, they were wearing glass and ceramic armor, though theirs was ornate rather than practical, and in a style that had last been seen in the Old Kingdom of ancient Egypt.

    Minutes earlier, the couple had left an almost perfect facsimile of Danu Talis to travel across a dozen linked Shadowrealms, some remarkably similar to earth, some completely alien. And although the couple were both by nature intensely curious about the myriad worlds they ruled, they did not linger. They raced through a complex network of leygates that would lead them to the place known as the Crossroads.

    There was so little time left.

    Nine gates opened out into Xibalba, each one little more than a roughly carved opening in the black rock wall. Avoiding the bubbling pits of lava that spat sticky strings of molten rock across their path, the couple traversed the width of the Shadowrealm from the ninth gate to the third, the Gate of Tears. Even the anpu, which were by nature fearless, refused to approach this cave. Ancient memories rooted deep in their DNA warned them that this was the place where their race had almost been exterminated after they'd fled the world of the humani.

    As the couple neared the circular cave mouth, the crude and blocky glyphs carved over the opening began to glow with a faint white light. It reflected off their mirrored armor, illuminating the interior of the cave, painting the couple in stark black and white and, in that instant—briefly—they were beautiful.

    Without a backward glance, the couple stepped into the dark cave mouth . . .



    . . . and less than a heartbeat later, a couple dressed identically in white jeans and T-shirts winked into existence on the circular stone known as Point Zero before Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France. The man took the woman's hand in his and together they set off at a brisk pace, picking their way through the debris of stones and broken statues that still littered the square where Sophie and Josh Newman had used Elemental Magic to defeat the cathedral's animated stone gargoyles.

    And because this was Paris, no one looked twice at a couple wearing sunglasses at night.

  • School Library Journal

    June 1, 2011

    Gr 2-6-The titles in this series introduce young viewers to a variety of artists and their work. In this program, Puffer the puffin goes to Florence, Italy, where his friend Polly teaches him about Renaissance artists. Elements of the Renaissance are briefly introduced and then information about Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Raphael is presented. A brief biography of each artist is presented, and two examples of his art are examined in detail. The material in the DVD is based on the book (Crystal Prods., 2010) by Pamela Geiger Stephens. Jim McNeill's soft, computer-generated illustrations are simply animated. There are also photographs of these masterpieces: "5 Grotesque Heads" and "Mona Lisa" by Leonardo da Vinci; Michelangelo's "Pieta" and "The Creation of Adam" (carefully framed for elementary audiences); and Raphael's "The School of Athens" and "St. George and the Dragon." This simple yet interesting introduction to an important part of our artistic heritage will be embraced by art teachers for use with young students.-Teresa Bateman.

    Grades 7-12 It's almost over, isn't it? After all, Nicholas Flamel is dying, and Perenelle will soon follow. Dr. John Dee has stolen the Codex, the twins Josh and Sophie have been alienated from each other, the Shadowrealms are crumbling, and Dee plans to destroy the world. Readers of the intelligent, complex series The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel will be delighted that folklorist and mythologist Scott still has plenty of plot twists and magic in store. Replete with familiar and new characters and even a trip back to Danu Talis, this next-to-last installment will not disappoint.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2011, American Library Association.)

    In this fifth book, Josh, going against his twin Sophie, has chosen sides with wicked Dr. Dee. The action-driven installment relies heavily on prior knowledge of the series and of the historical figures it has introduced (sometimes to the detriment of character development). Fans of the series will appreciate this adventure's shifting alliances and surprise twists.
