| Well who has really Shepherded and lead the twins the whole way, how do you make it so many years without telling a "few" lies, I stated this before I started doing my research, and the only one that has been questioned before is.................... Nicholas Flamel.|
So now we have to distinguish between Nicholas and/or Germaine, germain never Shepherd josh, only sophie, and scatty is a girl so she is out of the running, noone else has had as much contact with the twins as flamel.
I agree with everything you said there but, Nicholas as the one Michael is talking about just seems too obvious. I mean we have known almost from the very beginning that the twins (and us) should not trust Nicholas completely.
I mean Hekate as much as says so in this exchange:

| "And Flamel knew this could happen?" Josh asked, feeling a great surge of anger begin in the pit of his stomach. He felt sick. The Alchemyst had known the Awakening could, in all likelihood, send him and Sophie into a coma, and|
yet had still been prepared to let them go through with it. The rage burned
within him, fueled in equal parts by fear and a terrible sense of betrayal.
He'd thought Flamel was his friend. He'd been wrong.
"Of course," Hekate said. "He told you there were dangers, didn't he?"
"He didn't tell us everything," Josh snapped.
"Nicholas Flamel never tells anyone everything." One side of Hekate's face
was touched with the silver light radiating from Sophie, the other was
sheathed in black shadow.
We have been incredibly conditioned not to trust Nicholas so I just think it would be almost anti-climatic to have Nicholas be the one that is lying. We know that already, right?
Yes i agree with you as, well but maybe thats the twist, we are all looking for, its the MAIN main character, the one who the books are based, it all makes sense if you really think about it, it mentions that Flamel is and outstanding alchemist, but never tells us anything else.
And it is obvious, so obvious that Mr. Scott is hoping people will over look him completely and misinterpret the books and look for someone else, and be completley blown away when it is him, we all have been looking the other way and won't expect it, so no its not anti climatic.
We have been conditioned yes, but he is the one that is trying to save the world with the twins so why, wouldn't he be a good candidate, no one said the necromancer was bad, just cause it deals with death, doesn't mean its bad, who said a line that was like, magic isn't bad its how you use it that makes it bad (it was in a podcast or in the books, I can't remember). It makes perfect sense to me now to throw Flamel back into the running.

| I've known Nicholas Flamel for a very long time. He is many things-Dangerous and devious, cunning and deadly, a good friend and an implacable enemy-but he comes from an age when a man's word was indeed precious. If he gives you his word that he's done all this for your protection, then I am suggesting that you believe him. ~ Scathach|
