I did not like the beginning of the latest installment of the twins of legend as the author expected you to know where things left of in the (weak) predecessor book. The twins remain separated as Sophie remains with the Flamels while Josh is off with John Dee and Virginia Dare, and many of their friends have travelled back in time to save the world. The battle intensifies as Josh seems lost to the bad guys and Sophie tries to help him. Good fantasy again. ( )

The ending was amazing, I did not see that coming! ( )

As with the previous four books in this series, a very fast, exciting read. It is always difficult to put these books down or keep from saying 'I'll read just one more chapter.' It is going to be torture waiting a year for The Enchantress to be published. ( )

Dit boek was okay, denk ik.

Het probleem met dit boek, en de rest van de serie, is dat er te veel karakters in worden geïntroduceerd. Allemaal zijn ze op de een of andere wijze met elkaar verbonden. Het bijhouden van alle deze personages is vervelend. Ieder van de nieuwe figuren is of een Oudere, een Volgende Generatie of een Onsterfelijke.

Bijna geen van de karakters, misschien met uitzondering van Scathach, Machiavelli en Dare, veranderen echt. Ze blijven vlak en uitwisselbaar.

Het verhaal uit dit boek speelde zich op een dag af, en pas op de laatste 20 pagina's was er pas echt wat actie, de rest zijn een soort vulling. Het was misschien beter geweest als delen van dit boek waren toegevoegd aan het volgende (Zieneres), minus de opvulling.

De mythen en legendes worden in deze boeken op een interessante manier tot leven gebracht. Van de meeste hadden ik nog nooit gehoord, maar dankzij de krachten (duistere) van Google wel meer te weten gekomen. De auteur heeft hier duidelijk wel onderzoek verricht.

Het einde was verrassend, en niet op een goede manier.

2.5 OK for listening to while running errands, but the author is really dragging the series out w each succeeding book holding my interest less. Wrap it up already! ( )
