Book 46: The Rising

1 Jun

therisingThe Rising (Darkness Rising #3) by Kelley Armstrong


Here I was waiting patiently for the conclusion of the trilogy and after reading it I just felt meh. Which probably has to do with the Daniel/Maya ending. I just loved Rafe so much. But I can see that the kids made the right decision by making a deal with the Cabal, and it is basically learning super soldier training that you can later use to escape. What I loved about this book was the A) mentions of Women of the Otherworld characters (Savannah in the house whoop) and B) when they joined up with the Genesis kids! I definitely preferred that trilogy/cast of characters. Man what does it say about me, when my favorite character(Chloe) is only in less than 50 pages of the 400. She just has the best lines!



Book 43 :The Necromancer

thenecromancerThe Necromancer (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel #4) by Michael Scott


Of course everything is going to come back to the crystal skulls. Haha. Old Archon technology. I liked the Witch’s memories moments and we finally get to meet the Hooked-Handed man. He seemed evil before but now good, so we shall see what’s happening here. On to the twins, Josh, really you’re going to listen to Dee again? Silly Boys. You’re only supposed to trust Sophie, why would you turn away from her! Dumb! This novel was also filled with twins. Aoife and Scatty, obvi Josh and Sophie, Prometheus and Zephaniah, the dream twins. Does Nicholas/Perenelle have a hidden twin somewhere? Oh it also looks like Machiavelli might just turn on the Elders, yay!




Book 41: The Sorceress

thesorceressThe Sorceress (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel # 3) by Michael Scott


This book has reaffirmed my wishes to be a Sorceress. Dang Perenelle is super awesome and super bad-ass. No wonder she is my favorite! She also has all the right allies. First the spider, Areop-Enap who valiantly fought the flies, and now the Crow Goddess. It was priceless when Machiavelli and Billy the Kid saw them embracing in friendship. Second she makes all the right moves. Using the Archon stake she stabbed Nereus. Scry-skyped with Scatty, and escaped Alcatraz. When Machiavelli revealed the some of the Dark Elders feared her, I gave a whoop at her power. On the twin side of the story, I like the Mars strategy brainfused Josh, very useful. The revelation that the Witch and Mars were married, not unexpected but loved the delivery of the news. Now that the Flamels are reunited what kind of trouble can they be in?




Book 37: The Magician

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.
