The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott
The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel

Worthwhile review! read it!
I liked this book! Scott is really good at painting pictures, characters and seanes. It was a very fresh idea. There were some falts in it too, though. It didn't bring your emotions into what you're reading. You didn't really relate to the characters as much, or feel how they felt. They were all really dramatic, it seemed like they were acting in a play. sometimes it was verry cheesy. Another thing was I thought the two main characters, Josh and Sophie, were to similar to the characters in Fablehaven. One thing was that sophie got her powers first. and, like if Fablehaven, they both have opposite powers. Other than those things I thought it was a good book.I really liked the aura idea. Very origonal! I still belive another writer could make the story exciting, but still using the same plot. Good read! one funny thing was that the book takes place over two days.
