I read this book when I was around 13 or 14. It was between 2015 and 2016. I remember it was the last book in the series and the back cover had an illustration of an (old) man wearing a green bowler hat and suit.

Basically, this group of teens, possibly three boys and two girls, were tasked to take down an evil sorceress. This sorceress had a daughter called Eris and she killed all her boyfriends. One of the female characters could turn into a Chinese dragon and was related to a villain from one of the first books.

I remember something about a golem taking the place of the main male protagonist and I also remember that the final battle took place on the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Additionally, the teens posted a spell on YouTube to try to find the remaining kids to fulfil the prophecy.

There were lots of elements involving time travel, knights (briefly), and hamburgers.

  • Hi, welcome to SF&F. We don't know how old you are, so approximately what year was it when you read this?

  • Reminds me a bit of the 3rd X-Men movie: Teens with super powers, check. Shapeshifter, telepath, check, check. Climax on Golden Gate Bridge, check. Old man in a suit, check. (Xavier doesn't wear a green hat though) Girl who kills all her boyfriends, almost check, as anyone who touches Rogue could die from it. Evil sorceress - sort of check, that is where Phoenix starts going dark. Time travel - check in the later movies, but not that one. Dec 28, 2022 at 20:33

This is a guess since I don't own a copy of the books, but could this be The Magnificent 12 Series by Michael Grant?

In the first book, The Call, we are told twelve children have to gather together to battle the wicked Pale Queen and her daughter Ereskigal. The daughter's name Eriskigal is close to Eris, though apparently in the book she is known as Risky.

A review of the last book in the series, The Power, mentions the golem and the final battle on the Golden Gate bridge.

Meanwhile, back in Sedona, the golem pretending to be Mack, is being fought over by new-chief-bully Angie and Risky, the Pale Queen's evil (but drop-dead gorgeous daughter). Which all leads to a stunning climax on the Golden Gate Bridge.
