Publisher Comments:

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. Nicollo 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 Prophesy is becoming more and more clear.

It's time for Sophie to learn the second elemental magic: Fire Magic. And there's only one man who can teach it to her: Flamel's old student, the Comte de Saint-Germain--alchemist, magician, and rock star. Josh and Sophie Newman are the world's only hope--if they don't turn on each other first.

From the Hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

The First Codex is the perfect gift for readers young and old. This boxed set contains the first three books in Michael Scott’s New York Times bestselling series The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel: The Alchemyst, The Magician, and The Sorceress.

This second book continues the action with a little less reflection and a little more swords-and-sorcery. I would have liked more access to Josh's internal struggle, and more sense that his decision-making posed a dilemma for him in relation to his sister. Nice descriptions of the Paris catacombs.

In this sequel to The Alchemyst Sophie, Josh, Scatty and Nicholas are still running from Dr. John Dee. They take a lay line to Paris, Flamel's birthplace. They find a expert in fire magic and ask him to teach Sophie to use her newly awakened powers. However Dee is close behind and he has the help of a immortal who may be more powerful then than any of our good guys can hope to be.

This sequel was rather disappointing. The writing felt rushed and even clumsy, such a monumental difference from the first. The plot felt simplistic and lacked the twists and turns of the first. The characters were still great and I really liked Machiavelli, the new villain. I may try the third book and hope the quality improves.
