The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel

The Alchemyst - Michael Scott, Erik Singer A surprising and refreshing view of magic and the ever prevailing fight of good against evil.

Mr. Scott tells us that the main characters in this, the first in the series, and indeed some of the events he writes about, are indeed non-fictional. It makes me wonder just how much of this genre is imagination and how much is embellished fact.

I have to admit to having to use my own imagination to spruce up the imagery, but it is the first in the series, and the plot and story are intriguing enough for me to say I really like it and look forward to the next volumes in the series.

I highly recommend this to any lover of mysticism, magic and thrilling fantasy.
