I completed a quick read of Michael Scott's second novel of the The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series by completing The Magician in two days. I really am enjoying this series.
Part of the hook continues to be Scott's explanation for all the wonders of the world and other justifications. They make me smile! :) His use of unanswered questions also continues to appeal to me. As much as I want the answers, I am going to wait, hold off on novel three. Why? These novels are jam-packed with action. After fighting the enemy for two days, one just needs a mind-break! Plus, there are just so many novels in this series, and I do not want to complete them too soon! Yes, it's much like dangling a carrot before my very own literary nose!
Again, I encourage you to begin this series and meet the characters: Josh, Sophie, Flamel, Perenelle, Joan of Arc (yes, you read that correctly!), and many others. Very interesting! In glancing at novel three, I saw Shakespeare's name mentioned much...so this one will not wait long on me to read!
Read...yes, please read this series!
