If I'm not mistaken I believe that is referring to the symbol at the VERY top and bottom of the cover, in the middle.

I'm not really convinced that it is, as the symbol is not exactly the same. But anything is possible!

You are right Hitman, the symbol right at the top of the cover isn't exactly that rune, but I'll admit they do look very similar.... anyways, the rune doesn't always just mean humanity, the divine spark and becoming whole. It can also mean intelligence, divine structure, ability and awareness... but when it's upside-down, it is usually associated with cunning, mortality, self-delusion and slyness.. (the list goes on for each orientation but I know I am already off-topic, so I just kept it short). So if it is some sly reference to Mannaz (The Self), what would its repetition at the bottom of the cover mean, taking into account that it seems to be in the upside-down position?

Well, the symbol at the bottom could easily be a reference to the whole group/community, which might refer to the world. That's my idea... a little obvious

Wow, coolness, we're finally gonna see some Aztec/Mayan deities and possibly Japanese ones. Nice to see the range of mythologies expanding a little more.

I agree - these six covers together are going to look stunning.  However, English readers should be aware that the UK publishers are now talking about rejacketing the series with entirely new covers.  I am not sure what this means for the Necromancer onwards, but I've a feeling that it will appear with the new cover style.

(And, as a complete aside - your scent did make me laugh)

NOOO!!!!!! :'( Say it isn't sooo!!!!! Oh well that is my venting for the day. Anyway I still think that the green man is Odin. When I looked up the green man it said that he was associated with Norse mythology and egyptian gods. In this case I will use Norse mythology and Michael said that the Yggdrassil was taken straight from Norse mythology and who did he also say had an Yggdrassil? (besides Hekate) Odin!! I rest my case

Yay. I am not the only one who thinks that the man in the corner is Odin! Whee!

The whip. Can it be the same as the one Perry used through Sophie in The Alchemyst? You know, the one that changed Bastet and The Morrigan's children to their original forms. Or it can be Perry's whip that was made from Medusa's hair. Not sure.

Wow, you guys are so committed to the forum. But, then again, I am thorougly obsessed with it. I can't help it. This is basically the best series I have read since Harry Potter.

Sorry for getting off track. The kinja sign. I know it has been discussed. I also think that it is Aoife's Japanese friend. I mean, it makes sense. But, probably only in the mess of ideas I call my brain. He seems dark and dangerous enough to have something, anything, to do with death.

As for the Mayans, Google will have to help me with that. flamelssecret/read.gif flamelssecret/idk.gif

Random House has recently updated their website to include the cover and release date of book #4 in The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series, entitled The Necromancer!

There are some VERY interesting images included... Please give us all your juicy thoughts!


And here it is!!!

Plus we got a release date of April 27th 2010 (Date was revised to May 25th 2010)... A month earlier than last year! Thoughts?

ummm interesting, the cover is full of mysteries, i like the crystal skull, the face in the middle just like from the Aztec art, the Japanese word means death, and the is that the picture of wind or water ? flamelssecret/idk.gif and the whip. flamelssecret/read.gif
