The Magician (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel #2) by Michael Scott

Nicholas Flamel appeared in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter—but did you know he really lived? And he might still be alive today! Discover the truth in Michael Scott’s New York Times bestselling series the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel in The Magician, book two.
   After fleeing Ojai, Nicholas, Sophie, Josh, and Scatty emerge in Paris, the City of Lights. Home for Nicholas Flamel. Only this homecoming is anything but sweet. Perenell is still locked up back in Alcatraz and Paris is teeming with enemies. Nicollo Machiavelli, immortal author and celebrated art collector, is working for Dee. He’ s after them, and time is running out for Nicholas and Perenell. For every day spent without the Book of Abraham the Mage, they age one year—their magic becoming weaker and their bodies more frail. For Flamel, the Prophesy is becoming more and more clear.
    It’s time for Sophie to learn the second elemental magic: Fire Magic. And there’ s only one man who can teach it to her: Flamel’s old student, the Comte de Saint-Germain—alchemist, magician, and rock star. Josh and Sophie Newman are the world’s only hope—if they don’t turn on each other first.

Readers will be swept up by a plot that moves smartly along, leaving a wide trail of destruction and well-timed revelations.”—Kirkus Reveiws, Starred

I loved reading this wonderful book! It is a story that keeps you entertained for hours.

I can't say if I like Book #2 better than Book #1...but I did enjoy it and can't wait to read #3. I'm almost sorry I discovered these books before all five were written because I hate waiting. It's sometimes fun to start a series after it is completely written so you can go from one book to the other. I like the new characters that have appeaared in this book. There is more dimension than just (evil) Dr. Dee. I'm not always sure I think Josh should be overcome with so much doubt just because he is jealous of his sister's powers, but then that could be I just don't want him in Dr. Dee's hands. Since the balance is evened out in this book, it will be interesting to see what happens in Book #3. Compared to some of the other teen series I have read (Harry Potter, Twilight), I definitely put these above the Twilight series and right behind Harry Potter in terms of writing and being a well written book. I love all the combination of myth, fictional and real people. I constantly google someone to read more about them.

I just finished reading the first two books, and the story just keeps getting better and better. I read the first book in 3 days, the second book in 2 days....the third will probably be even quicker! The books are very well written. If you like action-packed adventure and fantasy mixed with mythology, you will really love these books! I can't seem to put them down! Bravo to the author!

An excellent continuation of a wonderful series. However, I did find one discrepancy regarding the twins relationship to each other, which you are bound to discover for yourself when you read it. A much more intense story, better vocabulary, and for intense than the Alchemyst. If you read the first book and are unsure if you want to continue reading the series, CONTINUE!!!! It only gets better :)

After running away from Ojai, Nicholas, Sophie, Josh, and Scatty arrive in Paris. This is the home of Nicholas Flamel. Niccolo Machiavelli lives in Paris and is working for the evil Dr. Dee and they're tracking Nicholas around the world. Every day Nicholas and Perenelle spend without the book they age one year. While this is happening in Paris Perenelle is being held captive in a cell in Alcatraz guarded by a Sphinx. I would give Michael Scott an A because I loved the way he incorporated magic into a fun exciting story. I also enjoyed all of the surprises the author adds in the book. My favorite part was when Josh went to help save Scatty from the Niddhog because Josh was never a big fan of Scatty. He tended to stay away from Scatty because she was a vampire. That was my favorite surprise and that's why I would give Michael Scott an A. I would recommend this book to 4th to 6th graders because there is a lot of magic that will excite kids. It is also good for 6th graders because there is a thrilling story line that will make you want to read the sequel.

The Magician is a nice followup to the success of Michael Scott's thrilling novel, The Alchemyst. The book takes place mainly in Paris as the twins (Josh and Sophie Newman) attempt to escape the clutches of Dr. John Dee and Niccolo Machiavelli. This story makes a nice companion to The Alchemyst as Sophie further continues her development of the five magics and Josh begins to wield Clarent, the coward's blade. And Nicholas Flamel further continues his century-old dispute with Dr. John Dee. This thrilling encounter brings in true mythological characters like Nidhogg, the Disir, and other creatures and beings of several multi-cultural myths and legends. All and All, The Magician is a nicely done followup to the roaring success of Michael Scott's first novel in the series, The Alchemyst.

After a narrow escape from California, master Alchemyst Nicholas Flamel, (real) vegetarian vampire Scathach, and the supposedly all-powerful twins Sophie and Josh, find themselves in Paris. Flamel is overjoyed to see the city of his birth in the 1500's, but not everyone is a happy camper. Josh is growing increasingly jealous of his sister's new magic powers. Sophie is growing more and more convinced that the only reason why her little brother (by 26 seconds) is in danger at all is the work of their so-called allies. Like-minded after a disastrous run-in with a ginormous monster, Josh is starting to wonder whether the bad guys might be the good guys after all. I'm afraid that my head will explode if I read The Sorceress anytime soon. Well, that's actually a good thing, because Michael Scott's characters, despite being actual mythological creatures and people, are packed with personality and feeling that make them seem real. The plot, however, got a bit confusing during the climax and the some of the characters started acting a lot less believable in the middle, but otherwise, I loved this sequel to The Alchemyst. The best part for me was the blend of modern and magical, which wasn't too different from the style of Percy Jackson. -Literary Pizazz,
