I feel so guilty for having read this. It was spring break though to be fair... ( )

Good sequel to Alchemyst. High quality fantasy for young adult/Harry Potter crowd. Recommended. ( )

[This is a review I wrote in 2009]

**In a class of its own, brilliant**

I am bound to cause controversy when I claim that this series is better than Harry Potter; better than the Northern Lights trilogy; better than Abhorsen; better by far than a whole host of similar genre novels - all of which I have thoroughly enjoyed, but I haven't enjoyed anything quite as much as this unputdownable series from Irish author, Michael Scott. You won't find even the smallest amount of space-filling or extraneous writing here - it is all fantastic. And, no, I don't know the author, I don't work for the publishing house, I just really love these books and would like to see the author receive the recognition he deserves. He's right up there with J. K. Rowling, with Philip Pullman, and a whole host of other world class fantasy writers in my opinion.

Josh and Sophie Newman, twins, ordinary American teenagers until their latent magical powers were recently recognised by six-hundred-year old Nicholas and Perenelle Flamel; these two are absolutely vital in the quest to save civilisation and prevent the Dark Elders from seizing ultimate power and destroying vast swathes of the world and its inhabitants. Josh and Sophie are the world's last and only hope.

'The Magician' is book two of the series, following on from 'The Alchemyst'. The Codex is the key - the ancient book of Abraham the Mage - Nicholas and Perenelle need the book to enable them to keep renewing their spell of immortality but the book has already been snatched from their grasp by Dr. John Dee, working on behalf of his dark masters, some of the most powerful Dark Elders in the universe. However, Nicholas and the twins managed to hold onto the last two pages and these are vital to unlocking the secrets of the book and the Dark Elders cannot act without them. Sophie's magical powers have been awakened but Nicholas now hopes to find a way to have Josh's powers awakened too. These two, he is convinced, are the twins of legend; twins with auras of gold and silver which together makes them pretty nigh invincible. This brother and sister, it is written in the ancient Codex, will have the power to either save or destroy the world, but they are new to this underworld of magic, their powers are yet young and they will need to be trained in the elemental magics and learn a lot very quickly. Can Nicholas and the extremely ancient (yet still youthful) vampire warrior Scatty teach them enough to protect themselves? Not only are they fighting against the magic of the powerful Dee, but now sly and cunning Niccolo Machiavelli has combined forces to capture the missing last pages of the Codex. Will it be too little too late for Perenelle who has been captured and is held prisoner by magical beasts on the island of Alcatraz? Will Josh and Sophie put their trust in Nicholas, or will his limited revelations and his lack of openness lead the twins to question their faith in the ancient Parisienne?

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. Start with 'The Alchemyst'. For ages 11+ but can be enjoyed by all ages. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. ( )

Twins, Sophie and Josh Newman, Nicholas Flamel and the warrior Scatty barely escape California alive and flee to Paris. There they are pursued by Niccolo Machiavelli, another immortal, who wishes to capture them and return the Dark Elders to power. While seeking refuge with one of Flamel's old apprentices, Josh and Sophie meet another legend as Sophie tries to learn to control her new powers. But time is running out, quite literally, for Nicholas and his wife as each day they spend without the book of Abraham the Mage, they are rapidly aging.

I'm quite surprised at how much I am enjoying these books. They are quick reads but lots of fun while reading them. I have no problems believing the plot (even though ancient gods and goddesses walking the earth stretches the imagination). Again, I liken these books to the Percy Jackson series. ( )

Another fine example of young adult literature by Michael Scott, “The Magician” brings more memorable characters from history into the thrilling pages of the second book in the “Secrets of Nicholas Flamel” series. Now that Sophie’s been Awakened and learned the magic of air, she must continue her training with the magic of fire. Her brother Josh, ever envious of her abilities continues to wonder about his own powers, and if they can be Awakened too. A page-turner I couldn’t put down, I highly recommend this to anyone who loves historical fiction or fantasy. ( )

Perched on top of the water tower on Alcatraz, surrounded by huge Dire-Crows, the Morrigan sang softly to herself. It was a song first heard by the most primitive of ancient men, now imprinted deep into humankind's DNA. It was slow and gentle, lost and plaintive, beautiful ... and utterly terrifying. It was the Song of the Morrigan: a cry designed to inspire fear and terror. An on battlefields across the world and down through time, it was often the last sound a human heard in this life.
