The Alchemyst Chapter 6

By Michael Scott

Chapter 6

  • The action flits to Dr. John Dee in a car, proudly taking a picture of his prisoner, Perenelle, for his cell photo album. 
  • He sends the photo to a mysterious phone number. 
  • We learn that Dee is in awe of the elegant Frenchwoman, but has no clue just how powerful she is. 
  • It turns out that Perenelle is a powerful sorceress. She and her alchemyst husband make quite the power couple. 
  • Dee traces a curling symbol on Perry's left hand, and a mirror image on her right. Strange.
  • She sits up and tries to speak, but she cannot: apparently Dee has placed her under a warding spell. We're guessing that means he put a magical gag order on our girl.
  • Dee's phone rings, and he asks the person on the other line if he or she received the photo he sent. 
  • Perenelle can hear cackling on the other end of the line, and Dee says that he has the Book. 
  • He suddenly drops the phone when he realizes the two pages Josh tore from the book are missing. 
  • Needless to say, the dude is not happy. He makes to turn around, but then he changes his mind.
  • He tells the person on the phone that he will be in need of the Morrigan's services.
  • The who?
