Book 43 :The Necromancer

18 May

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 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.
