It is the last book of the series. It is a good ending. Not necessarily happy, but good. The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel is one of my favorite series, so of course I chose this book. I believe that every character ended this book as something different than they started. Some objects changed also. Even the four swords of power, Joyeuse for Earth, Excalibur for Ice, Durendal for Air, and Clarent for Fire, changed their form and were united. I really liked the idea of a fifth major power, an element, I suppose, a perfect mixture and balance of the other four - Aether. I doubt that any other person has taken traditional mythology and made it into something so different, so accurate, so realistic. Michael Scott has outdone himself in this marvelous book, the dramatic conclusion to his original mythology series.
About the genre of this book: fantasy is the closest you had, but it's really a mythology book.
