- I loved The Alchemyst and wanted to read more.
Summary from GoodReads:
After fleeing Ojai, Nicholas, Sophie, Josh, and Scatty emerge in Paris, the City of Lights. Home for Nicholas Flamel. Only this homecoming is anything but sweet. Perenell is still locked up back in Alcatraz and Paris is teeming with enemies. Nicolo Machiavelli, immortal author and celebrated art collector, is working for Dee. He’s after them, and time is running out for Nicholas and Perenell. For every day spent without the Book of Abraham the Mage, they age one year, their magic becoming weaker and their bodies more frail. For Flamel, the Prophecy is becoming more and more clear.
The action never stops in The Magician by Michael Scott. The Alchemyst left off with Sophie’s powers being awakened, but Josh still being left behind, with huge explosions, the deaths of Elder Beings and all manner of catastrophes following the twins around as Nicholas Flamel seeks to protect them… or does he?
I almost enjoyed The Magician more than The Alchemyst – mostly as a result of Perenelle’s story. I loved the spooky, creepy feeling I got when I read of her imprisonment in Alcatraz, I loved seeing the events as they unfolded during that time and found myself cheering (to myself, of course) as the story progressed.
The Magician brings more historic names to the plate and does a fantastic job of sticking a bit of education in there with the fanciful, action-packed story. There’s monsters, a teeny touch of romance, shocking revelations and more in this installment of the story and you can be sure I’ll be back for more with the next book in the series.
