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!
