The Magician: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, Book 2 | [Michael Scott]

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

After fleeing Ojai, Nicholas, Sophie, Josh, and Scatty emerge in Paris, the City of Lights. Home of Nicholas Flamel. Perenell is still locked up back in Alcatraz and Paris is teeming with enemies. Niccolò Machiavelli, immortal author and art collector, is after them, and time is running. 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 Prophecy is becoming more and more clear.

Publisher's Summary

After fleeing Ojai, Nicholas, Sophie, Josh, and Scatty emerge in Paris, the City of Lights - and home of Nicholas Flamel. Only this homecoming is anything but sweet. Perenell is still locked up back in Alcatraz, and Paris is teeming with enemies. Niccolò 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 Prophecy 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.

Pssst! Listen to more Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel.

    "A fun read. Very enjoyable."

    Not a complex plot or a vast number of characters. All enjoyable. lots of action. A great bedtime read for all ages. A fine second volume seamlessly picks up from the first.

    Story
    "The Nicholas Flamel series continues"
    What made the experience of listening to The Magician the most enjoyable?

    The way the narrator, Eric Singer, used different accents and timbres in his voice.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    St. Germaine


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The voice of Mars Alto. He didn't terrify me or make me think of scary, all-powerful Elders.

    "Holding us spellbound"

    There is quite a bit of repetition in these tales - so I can tune in and out as my son listens to it. I wouldn't have the patience to listen to the whole thing, but it is keeping him hooked.

    I am a person that tries and get through 1 book a week if possible. I am Dyslexic so this is really the only way I can get through a book. I have listened to more book in a year than I read my first 20 years of my life. I found the joy of audio books in the early 2000 and have been a audible customer since 2000 or 2001. I have over 490 books in 2 different accounts and listened to 90%.

    Story
    "Anmature Writing at BEST."
    What would have made The Magician better?

    The storyline and plot isn't original. It’s taken two books to tell a part of a story that could have been told in three chapters. Repeated thoughts, and feelings occur so often that you can quote word for word what is going to be said after the second and even the third time of hearing it! The writer has a limited vocabulary, and lacks the ability to describe feelings and actions of the characters in basic conversation. Most of the time he overstates actions and feeling. DUDE, WE GET IT...HE'S MAD! It reads like I write...which isn't good and should not be published. Honestly – the author has a good idea for a story, with interesting facts, and creative interpretations of myths and mythical creatures (although some facts are overstated, and farfetched); however - I think this writer would have been better off submitting his idea for the books to a good writer so the story could be told well. I'm half way through listening to this book and nothing has changed at all; well nothing that couldn't be told in one chapter, or maybe even in a half chapter.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I'm not listening to book three in this series. My ears are bleeding already and I'm half way through book two. I just have to finish it...because I paid one credit for it. I suggest, if you like mythical creatures, you read some of Tamora Pierce's books like "Wild Magic". I started with "The Circle of Magic" series. Now, that's a great writer!


    How could the performance have been better?

    The performance is great considering the material.


    What character would you cut from The Magician?

    I'd cut the brother - or give him some other personality besides - village idiot. He is probably the most predictable character I've ever had the displeasure of listening too. This character repeats himself more than any other character in the book...and that's saying something. Also, he contradicts himself continuously. I assume this is the author's way of stating he is confused...but believe me...WE KNOW HE'S CONFUSED! That was well covered in the first book.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't like to tell people not to support a writer. But if you value your dollar...don't waste it on this book. Sorry. I feel bad for this review, but honesty is always best. It is possible that the writing gets better as the series progresses, but I'd rather not risk it.
