    Michael Scott Takes a Large Bite Out of Continued Fame

    Michael Scott's Billy the Kid and the Vampyres of Vegas is a well-written and fantastically creative addition to the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series. While book retailers may list Scott's work under the teen or children's section, there is nothing childish about his work, or the story line. This installment, as with the rest of the series, is for all ages above a first grade level. This supplement, like the other books in the series, creates a world within our world using historical and mythological characters along with those of his personal creation. Each character is vividly put together and interwoven within the realm of his imagination, and lucky for the readers, also on the reader's pages. I have not had the privilege of reading other works by this author, but I can tell you that after reading this series, and the additions to the main storyline, I would have no problem recommending his writing to anyone, or reading any or all of his other works.

    Really long review... great series otherwise

    I only got the sample so i was really dissapponted when the sentence got cut off. I did read The Death oh Joan of Arc. It was really good like the rest of the series. I so cannit waitfor the Enchantress. I read a review that said Sophie was the enchantress. What a dead give away. She is basically the only character left without a book. Well, besides josh... hey! Guess what i thought of. The alchemyst movie!!!! Jim carey would nail nicholas falmel. But who would do perry? I dunno. When i pictured sophie, i thought of avril lavinge... or emma watson with her hair dyed blonde. Who would do josh? I dunno.


    This series RULES!!!!!!!!!!

    Must read!!

    Loved this companion ebook to the Nicholas Flamel Series. I liked Joan of Arc too but was glad this one was longer. Author Michael Scott could truly do a spin-off series!!

    A welcome addition to the Nicholas Flammel Series

    The immortal, Billy the Kid, is asked to deliver a relic to an unknown immortal by his elder master. Soon this begins to look like a setup, and Billy comes to know Scathach the Shadow Warrior.

    Someone, or some thing, is pulling the strings behind this, and they want Billy dead - for good this time. An unlikely team is formed as they confront a new - and very deadly - enemy from the myths of Ireland.

    I only wish this were a longer story. The 67 (ebook) pages is very enjoyable, and I could have read a book about these characters!
