Mini Reviews: The Flamel Secrets

The Magician
The Secrets of the Immortal of Nicholas Flamel, Book 2

By Michael Scott

A fantastic sequel to The Alchemyst! It moved quicker and contained more “action” scenes. Since most of the characters were introduced in the previous book, there was more time for some character development. I’m looking forward to The Sorceress, next in the series, to develop Perenelle’s character… I think she could be my favorite! I’m still adjusting to a clash of myths/legends because I typically like stories that keep them categorically separate, but I am finding it an interesting read nonetheless.

Audiobook Performance: ★★★★

The Sorceress
The Secrets of the Immortal of Nicholas Flamel, Book 3

By Michael Scott

Holy buckets don’t miss that epilogue!!

“The two that are one,” he mumbled, “the one that is all.”

I thought that phrase was used WAY too much, but now I’m on board again!! About the time my eyes gloss over, I am reminded why I love this series. It has absolutely nothing to do with the magic system (which btw, is explained away with: “at the heart of all magic is imagination”). I also don’t care for the twins, Josh or Sophie. So, I can’t put my finger on exactly why I really like this series, but that doesn’t bother me because I do have fun with it! It’s one of those series that I love, then put down for way too long, and then wonder why I didn’t just finish it already!

I still absolutely LOVE Perenelle and I hope there is a lot more coming from her as the series continues. She’s cunning, but I’m holding out for her spectacular moment that has been given a lot of foreshadowing…

Audiobook Performance: ★★★★½
