The Alchemyst (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel)

I decided I needed some inspiration to keep posting on this blog.  So I am going to start crossposting my book reviews that I do over at  If you also use Goodreads let me know and I will follow you there.  I am not going back and posting old book reviews, just new ones.  Here is the first.


This was a free book from Amazon. I read it and liked it and will probably buy future books. Although the next two are at $9.99 right now, so I may wait until the prices drop.

This is a young adult fantasy book. I have seen it compared to Harry Potter, but I don’t think that is a great comparison. It is two modern kids that help out an man they know and find themselves at the center of a magical battle.

It is a pretty good read, but at the end of the book, you are really just getting started in the story. So I assume it will be about the same quality in the next books.

Review of book 2 and 3book 4 and book 5.
