I only started to read this series b/c J.K. Rowling mentions Nicholas Flamel in the Harry Potter series and Deborah mentions the philosophers stone in her all souls trilogy as well. This series is more for young readers, but it was somewhat interesting and kept me entertained for a while. ( )

This is just as fun and interesting as the first book of the series. Lots of action, mythology, history and geography. Looking forward to The Sorceress! ( )

Background: Dr. Dee is still in possession of the Book of Abraham the Mage and looking to release the Dark Elders into the world. Perenelle is trapped on Alcatraz with supernatural beasts guarding her and her husband, Nicolas, is in Paris with the twins. Now they are dealing with both Dee and Niccolo Machiavelli in Paris. As they unleash ancient monsters to gain both the twins and the last few pages of the Book.

Review: The Magician is the second installment of the Nicolas Flamel series, and the series moves a lot faster now that we have some background regarding both magic and the twins. This book has a lot more action than the first, more monsters and battles to escape, which are super fun to read. Scatty becomes even more intriguing as we learn a little more about her background, and more characters are introduced and they are awesome! Being a Humanities instructor I know a good deal about historical figures and a lot of the characters in these books are those very same historical figures, so it is great to see them being introduced in this light to more people. I am really enjoying this series, there are so many fun thing…magic, mythical creatures, historical people…I love it!

First words
I am dying.
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.
