The Magician Book Review

The Magician Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Sep 26, 2008
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

Join the immortal Nicholas Flamel and friends in the sequel to the best-selling book The Alchemyst! Here’s our book review.

Author: Michael Scott

Hunted by bad guys, separated from his love and getting older every day - life is rough for the immortal Nicholas Flamel! He's teamed up with Josh and Sophie, twins with a destiny to save or destroy the world, to keep the secret of eternal life from the villainous Dr. Jon Dee and Nicollo Machiavelli. It's a rocking roller coaster ride through California, Paris and more. Sit down tight and read our book review.


Magic and Mayhem

Magicians, alchemists, [KWLINK ]vampires[/KWLINK], gargoyles, villains and the end of the world! This book is packed full of twists and turns as the twins discover their magical powers while fleeing from Niccollo, Dee and their horrid allies. With friends and enemies crawling out of every corner, the heroes are on a mission to rescue Nicholas's wife and teach Sophie the powerful magic she'll need to be able to save the world.


A Roller Coaster Ride in a Book!

The first book was a whirlwind of adventure, but it was so fast that you didn't really get to meet the characters. This time, things slow down a teensy bit so you can say "Hi!" to Nicholas Flamel and his friends. It really helps get you involved in the story, especially the twins Sophie and Josh. But it's just a tiny slowdown and the action will still keep you glued to the page!


Phony Magic

Most readers won't notice, but if you're a history buff you'll see that some big historical names show up in this story, but the author is really sketchy on detail. There are also so many characters that you can get confused if you don't start with the first book - The Alchemyst.


The Final Chapter

When you start reading this book, make sure you buckle up! It's a high-speed ride with mountains of action, adventure, drama and maybe a little screaming. A few spots seem sketchy, but most of the story is awesome and you'll fly past everything fast enough that you'll hardly notice. And, when you're done, the preview chapter of the next book in the series, The Sorceress, will leave you wanting more!

    you can be fairly certain of your orientation at about any age around thirteen, or younger, too, maybe, but i do think that you'd need a more extensive understanding of sexuality before you're actually sure? your own sexuality and of sexuality in general. i mean, there is this misconception about sga orientations being s*x-central, which isn't true, since a young kid can have crushes on the same gender without even knowing about s*x at all in the first place. still, this is the difference between having an idea of your orientation and being certain of it (even if you may not be certain for many years after adolescence, too. it's not obligatory to figure it out before 20 or something). and it's really never too young for anybody to realize and acknowledge their attraction towards the same gender, it's just a matter of, will that attraction last for long enough after that for you to come out as the respective orientation? it's not just that you, as a girl, may be attracted to girls and boys now and later may just be attracted to boys--it could go totally the other way and find that you actually are only attracted to girls, but that only depends on your specific case and i don't know the details. it's fine to experiment with these labels i guess, but it's fair to say that many people will stop taking you seriously once you come out twice, thrice or more times as different things, because you hadn't thought it through properly. not to say that a single move like this that you do at thirteen will prove to be fatal or anything, though, if you live in a community that wouldn't put you at actual danger upon coming out, that is. you don't have to even choose a label if in the end you're not really sure, there shouldn't be pressure to do so. just go with something general and you'll get the point across. also keep in mind that 'coming out' isn't just a one time thing, and it's actually a continuous thing. sexuality won't come up in every discussion and you won't just go around yelling 'i'm gay!' around the whole city or something, you'll need to tell a lot of new people about it if you choose to and it will keep coming up. you can be out at school, but not at home. you can be out with friends, but not with the whole class. etc.  coming out isn't even such an important aspect in the first place if you ask me and it's a bonus pressure if you will. coming out will eventually come naturally when you get a same-gender partner and all, anyway, if you don't want to hide it forever or anything. good luck with that choice (in case i'm not too late with this reply, in which case good luck to whoever might be reading this for their own issue).

    To be completely and utterly honest, i think it's slightly young. I wouldn't go any younger that 16. Being 13 myself, i think it's hard trying to decide and put a label on something like this. If you bisexual, great! Straight, great! What i'm saying is....We have PLENTY of time in life to decide, so don't rush it just to say "Hey, i'm bi!" Or "Hey, I'm straight!"

If its what they feel on the inside, thats never going to change with a age. 4. dont use character quotes. rlly bothers me. Use ur OWN quotes or a pic or something, not a dead character from Harry Potter k?  Oh i'm so sorry if the right to have my own views has offended you, i'm just  saying that the way i see it is that at the age of thirteen a kid is now being introduced to topics such as these and their hormones are now kicking in and they should give themselves time to grow, these are my views and i'm entitled to them, just the way you are to yours. Second of all its my signature , i'll put what i want and quote what i want from who i want, and if it bothers you that much then just be the big kid you are and ignore it, K?
