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!

    On a "normal" person, Polygraphs have a 70%-90% success rate. Now, the problem is that a lot of people aren't "normal". Some people are naturally anxious or have an anxiety disorder, which can mess up the results. Obese people often tend to sweat more, which will give the sensors bad readings.  So, is it a good tool for finding the truth? In certain circumstances, yes. Is it enough to convict someone of a crime? No.

    Definitely not. A person can learn to control their heartbeat and lying skills, so the tests are most definitely NOT a accurate.

    Kirsteeeeen said I should post this so yeaOk so some things about my depression are like i found out i had it when i was 10. I might of had it before then but Idk. But like is a good thing i joined kw cause that's how my friend on here like figured out that i have depression and basically made me tell my mom and dad. And like also i kinda wanted to die and stuff and then later i kinda wanted to kill my self. And hurt my self. I kinda did a little bit but like not that much. And so like i had to do this weird therapy that didn't work. And then it kept getting worse and stuff and then like i went to the doctor and got some medicine but like they didn't give me any for almost a year probably until i was closer to 12. But the first one they tried made me like wake up sometimes and basically be really anxious like freaking out so much that i thought i might hurt myself or kinda other people or do things like run away. But it kinda helped the depression during the day and helped me to sleep sometimes better but like also i stopped wanting to do anything. So then i got a different one but it made me dizzy as soon as i tried it basically and so like after 3 days maybe then I spotted. But then i had to wait for them to get out of my system. After that i starred like regular therapy where you talk to the therapist. Like people told me it was bad so i really didn't want to go for a long time, but i went and it was kind of fun i guess like i could say anything and he wouldn't like be mad about me saying it or anything like he didn't judge and stuff. So i did that for a while like 2 or 3 months and i was feeling a lot better from that and some off the things we did. But like since my dad got a new job it has different insurance so i have to switch but we're just waiting to see like if i need to right now

    EDIT:  With the events in North Korea, I think it's likely that some sort of military conflict will occur in the near future. But it wouldn't be a "World War". North Korea has two "allies" on the planet, that being China and Russia. China's President has signaled a withdrawal of support from North Korea, and Russia so far has been silent on what's been happening.  Basically, if there is a war, it will likely be The World vs Kim Jong Un.
