Complete 5 Golden StarsRTC after next re read probably in 2020 for a start of a new series, this book was absolutely interesting Exciting, mysterious plot, making questions in our minds along with protagonists, lovable characters, Magic with a such a unique system, I actually didn t know I needed to see that before seeing it in this series in our world.Now I m thinking, this series, kind of reminded me of the Librarians tv show or that show reminded me of this series, if I want to say it according to chronologically creation of both but as I was writing it I recently finished binge watching the show the idea just strike me because we see many ancient famous characters during this series duh, the bold example is Nicholas Flamel himself mythological characters or historical real people.I love Josh why are you even surprised I always fall for the main character XD his character development through this series are awesome, one of a kind I mostly liked the villains in this book too, they were interesting, cool charismatic even sometimes I was wondering maybe we are with the protagonists at the wrong side of the story you know, I wondered maybe the dark side is not actually the dark side I never asked this question in all my reading life except this series.a confusing strong plot with mysteries thrills, you don t know where is up or down after drowning in this series such a must read for a mythology lover, regardless of the age people says it s a middle grade but even if it was it was such a great one I read it in my late teen years also interesting choices for the titles which made me think who that was referencing to.my 4th series in top fav series.it s worth reading definitely also gorgeous cover The Alchemyst The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel 1

MotionThis Page Turner Promises Plenty Of Action To Come Kirkus Reviews The Necromancer Unrelenting Forward MomentumThis Book Will Thrill Fans School Library Journal This book was awful So awful, it warrants me actually putting in a review.First of all, there isn t enough Nicholas Flamel There is far too much of the twins that kind of become Nic s apprentices, and attatches way too much teenage exposition to them And we don t need the two of them mentioning that their parents are archaeologists every other page We got it the first time Move on And even if their parents are archaeologists, they re not necessarily going to know as much about it as they seem too When you re 15, you try to stay away from your parents as much as possible And there seriously didn t need to be as much name dropping around the character of Josh I swear to God, whenever the story was from his perspective, there was always a name dropped of a movie or a video game, and there was always mention of his laptop, his cell phone, and that he had been on the football team And the repetition of the name dropping, or them mentioning their parent s profession, was enough to make you put a gun barrel in your mouth It felt way too forced Too much like he was trying to be all, Look I m one of you He turned a potentially kick ass 2 1 2 thousand year old vampire into a lame teenager Not a cool one, something you might have imagined Bill and Charlie Weasly being No, she was lame and just happened to be able to kick ass cuz she was a vampire.And some of the other gods could ve been completely awesome like Morr gan but they came off kind of lame, without any real power, and seemingly easily manipulated.Scott really could ve done something awesome with this, if he had decided to do a kick ass Sword Sorcery story a la Highlander The Series Instead, it felt like a teenager s attempt at High Fantasy cough Eldest Inheritance, Book 2 cough , and not a very good one at that And seriously, mentioning LotR at the beginning of your book, does not a High Fantasy make Nor does having something that s the equivalent of the Force, a good fantasy make. Quick review on this one Oh how this book conflicted me so On the one hand, I really enjoyed the story and the characters but ultimately the shoe horning of SO MANY historical events and figures into the story just curbed my enjoyment of it I get what the author was trying to do Flamel was a real person who supposedly discovered the secret to immortality but the cramming in of all of the historical figures that he encountered along the way as well as the significant historical events just killed it Could have been so much better but as it isjust average. I ll try to be fair here, this is a YA book and it comes in telling us it s going to play with historical and mythological figures.and play it does I found the book annoying and wonder at the damage we re doing to our youths and their knowledge of mythology, what we can learn from mythology, from the archetypal characters, thoughts, and ideas they contain Okay, part of rant over There are different types of YA books Some are yA while others are Ya This is in style and execution of a Ya book with emphasis on the Young rather than the adult With it s repetitive story telling asking something and then farther on asking it again, and again especially by the boy was a sort of constant Then however, along with the juvenile storytelling you get attempts at semi adult content that doesn t really work view spoiler What annoyed me so much Well, I happen to have a special feeling for the C Chulainn legend I m not sure how good it is for youths to learn be told that Sc thach is a vampire I know vampires are ubiquitous now but a mythical Celtic hero, trainer of C Chulainn making her a teenage vampire , I shudder even now Shall I go on The kids are annoying mom and dad are archeologists believe me I know this becauseas noted before repetition , they just kept telling us over and over The kids , the twins apparently know quite a bit about this subject, they retained it seems everything ever uttered about it along with a few other subjects, but apparently not much else Well, of course somehow occasionally one of them especially the young lady seems to show odd flashes of almost encyclopedic knowledge of some things We are told again over and over about the electronic devices they depend on especially the young man They apparently learned everything they know from movies, video games, and maybe their downloaded music Maybe had they bothered to download a couple of books These two drove me crazy they couldn t find electrical outlets in the world tree, and it flummoxed them okay hide spoiler I enjoyed The Alchemyst than I thought I would It didn t sweep me away with the must finish this book now feeling, but I also was never bored Fans of Harry Potter, Fablehaven, Rick Riordan s Percy Jackson books, and even The Da Vinci Code will find interesting connections and similarities here And yet Scott manages to bring something just a bit new to the table as well I was interested to learn that many of the main characters Nicholas Flamel, Perenelle Flamel, and Dr John Dee were actually real people and much of what is told as their back story is actually known about them Other characters in the book come from mythology and folklore Only the twins, Josh and Sophie Newman, are the author s own creation I was also interested in the use of modern gadgets, especially in the beginning Mostly the modern gadgets such as an iPod, texting on a cell phone, and googling for information via a laptop are used to give background information to the reader while showing that these kids are modern teens although at one point even one of the Elders uses a cell phone As the story progresses, though, the gadgets are left behind.I wouldn t rank this as one of my all time favorite fantasy stories even if I m just limiting to books I ve read this year But I did enjoy it and will certainly read the sequels as I get a chance If we had half stars, I would give this 3.5. REMEMBER This is Fantasy Welcome.I experienced a world that was filled with ancient characters both good and evil , strange creatures, and wonderfully described scenes with TONS of detail.I met twins, a boy and girl, with pure auras who possess magical powers that once awakened will change the world A 600 year old alchemyst who performs magic and when doing so the air around smelled like mint His wife possibly the same age is magical in different ways and befriends ghosts A 2,000 and a half year old Warrior who s also a vegetarian vampire An evil man about 400 years old creating mud people and zombies to do his evil bidding as he abides to evil that s far greater than his own I saw creatures from legend, myth, and nightmares Along the way many well known faces from history pop in and out of the storyline I heard mention of Joan of Arc, King Tutankhamen, and Queen Elizabeth I, just to name a few.This story sounds almost unbelievable, right OK, so maybe all these myths that are intricately mixed into real life can be overwhelming, although it works for me I love this stuff How could such a vast amount of information be put into a story and actually make sense I don t know but it does And it was easy to understand, take in, and digest as long as I continued to pay attention It was clever It was delicious. Dear Josh,let me start out with you You could ve been a really great kid but apparently, the author just couldn t make up his mind about you One minute you re an ordinary kid who likes superheroes and doesn t do well in school and then you become this person who has a super computer and uber nerdtastic knowledge Whoa, big difference I feel sorry for you I really do I get jealousy I get envy What I don t get is how you and Sophie never fight Is it just that in those two days that I was extracted from my world and put into yours, siblings and constant fighting and all the things that go with brother and sister was recreated into this perfect world where it s mushy gushy unconditional brotherly love and nothing else Sincerely,AnnoyedDear Sophie,You re really annoying I would like you if you stopped being you You re quite the hopeless case.Sincerely,The TruthDear Nicholas,You can go die in a hole and then come back to life and dissolve slowly in a pot of acid and then come back to life again to be slowly and maliciously tortured for eternity You should ve never existed in the first place.Sincerely,Rightfully AngryDear Pernelle,Why did you marry Nicholas Sincerely,ConfusedDear Scatty,You are pretty awesome Still, you re 1,000 years old and still have the maturity level of a teenager And I don t really get why you hang out with Nicholas Sincerely,You Could Do BetterDear Dora,You remind me of my own grandmother Sincerely,ImpressedDear Hekete,why the heck did you say yes to Nicholas and awake Sophie I mean, where is your common sense Don t you have any wisdom Sincerely,FrustratedDear John,You re supposed to be dead Live with it.Sincerely,We re better off without youDear Crow Goddess,you re so unimportant I don t remember your actually name Crows are cool so I don t think you should ruin them for me It s really selfish of the author to have him ruin crows Sincerely,I know you re not to blameDear Bastet,I liked you better as the Egyptian goddess.Sincerely,Go back where you belong.Dear crows,goddesses don t exist Get that through your bird brain and live life.Sincerely,myths will be mythsDear cats,I love you guys You re great Keep doing you, sweetie xoxo 3 Sincerely,Proud momDear rats,The cats will eat you.Sincerely,Just saying Okay I liked this book a lot than most people who have written reviews I feel that it s because I didn t go into it with many preconceived notions I had hoped it would be related to Harry Potter, but when I realized it wasn t I moved on I also didn t read the book because I was a huge fan of the real Flamel If you read it for either of those reasons, you will most likely be disapointed.15 year old twins Sophie and Josh have gotten summer jobs in San Franciso Josh works at a bookstore, and Sophie works across the street One day, a group of evil men come to attack Josh s boss, and it ends up that they are headed by the evil John Dee, Elizabeth I s spy, and that Josh s boss is none other than the immortal Nicholas Flamel Before flattening the bookstore completely, John Dee and his henchmen steal a very old book, except for the last 2 pages, which Josh has a tight hold on It ends up that the book is the secret to Nicholas Flamel s long LONG life, and that the last 2 pages are key, so now Josh s life is in danger, and Nicholas Flamel is aging before his eyes Josh, Sophie, and Flamel flee the city, with Dee in pursuit, but they soon learn that there is to the 2 of them, Josh and Sophie, than they have ever realized, that they are special, and perhaps Flamel is not being completely honest about his reasons for wanting them to accompany him on his journey.I felt a little confused why Nicholas Flamel couldn t make another stone, or whatever, to extend his life without the book that Dee took You would think that he would have the method down pat during the last 600 so years.The book does something different with magic that I d never read before, which is link it to the 5 senses According to the book, the reason that the average person cannot do magic is because their senses are dulled, and when the magic starts happening, there are an amazing number of smells described I did think the book did something dangerous, because it tied itself way too much to the present ipod, wikipedia, Shrek, the new Spiderman All of that is really going to date it in time It did make good historical references, linking the story to events that happened in the past, like the potato famine, and the great fire in London That somehow made the events in the story believable and immediate I also learned from the book, because the characters in it are ones I never have heard of before, like the Morrigan It was cool that he worked, somewhat, with characters who already exist I bet it would be easier to make them all up, but it was cool to see how they would all interact if they were together.Like Into the Woods, which I just reviewed, I think this book would make a really excellent movie, and in fact, some of the scenes would play out better in a movie than they did in the book I would definitely see it There is a sequel, which is coming out soon, and I m going to read it The ending leaves you with a cliffhanger, so I m glad I didn t read it when there was a long wait til the next book.
