The Alchemyst, by Micheal Scott

The only knowledge some may have of Nicholas Flamel is that he
was mentioned in Harry Potter. However he was a real man and
a colorful character. This *fantasy* (not what actually happened,
as far as we know) novel tells the story of two teens who, by a
twist of fate, end up in the middle of a fight that has gone on for
centuries. Flamel once took on an apprentice, John Dee, who
when he discovered that Flamel had the ability to be immortal
attempted to steal the book from Flamel. Flamel has eluded him
for five centuries, but can he still stay hidden in our modern

I didn't expect much, this book has had very mixed reviews, but
I highly enjoyed it. Sudden plot twists and fascinating characters
keep you on the edge of your seat and wanting more. The
writing was fast and flowing, almost poetical at times. Very easy
to read.
5 stars,
