Book 37: The Magician

23 Apr

themagicianThe Magician (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flammel #2) by Michael Scott

 

OMG OMG so much happened! The twins are in Paris, and cannot help but cause disaster in the lovely city. First a new villain, well not really but yes really comes into play, Mr. Machiavelli, and ahhh he was so cool! I liked him as a person much more than Dr. Dee (but don’t like him as a villain). Two we meet the Fire Master, loved the flamboyant Comte de Saint-Germain and his wife, just a little lady named Joan of Arc. Three said fire master imparts all his knowledge onto Sophie, who proceeds to whip the Valkyries’ butts with her new found knowledge. Perenelle is free, and has captured the Morrigan. Josh is awakened by Mars and gains all his memories! Ack Then we get a taste of the Twins powers!!! Must read the next one soon!!!!!

Book 25: The Alchemyst

thealchemystThe Alchemyst (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel #1 ) by Michael Scott

 

When my eyes glance across book shelves, I can’t help that my eyes are drawn to series, and this was how I found myself pulling this book off the shelf. I really liked this book. I’ve read books about magic before, but never about magic and alchemy. And I think that this genre is really interesting. Often I jokingly explain things that I can’t understand as “It’s magic!” Since I don’t know a lot of the lore connected with alchemy, I think that the book did a good job with explaining the details. Josh’s inner dialogue kind of annoyed me at times, but otherwise I think it was well told. And I know I would be feeling pretty negative if my twin was the one who was able to be ‘awakened’ or as I like to call it, “superhero-ed up” haah. I think I shall rush to the library and borrow the next few books.
