The Alchemyst by Michael Scott–A Book Review

The Alchemyst (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, #1)The Alchemyst by Michael Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Picture this: a near-immortal sorcerer teams up with an Ancient warrior to protect twins who don't yet realize they have magical powers but are ultimately needed to save the world. Sound familiar? That plotline has been used often enough to be called a formula.

And yet it works. The Alchemyst by Michael Scott is a rollicking page turner that relies on sympathetic characters to keep its readers engaged. Scott's bending and blending of myth and legend adds to the fun. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a fanciful adventure.
