The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series by Michael Scott
Some characters are etched in my mind mainly because they were overshadowed by their counterparts or peers. When the surname Flamel is mentioned, everyone is quick to associate it with the alchemist, Nicholas Flamel.
Very little is known about his wife Perenelle Flamel, who was equally powerful, if not more. But this series focuses on her, the famed wife of the famous alchemist, and this shows her individuality more than any other books I have read about the couple.
I have seen other books where Perenelle Flamel was mentioned, and none of them have shown her characterisation in this detailing. What I love about these books are the special powers attributed to the famous Flamel spouse. It made me immensely happy to read a well fleshed-out character.
The song I dedicate to this character: Beyoncé – ***Flawless ft. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
