I know they are kids' books, but has anyone else read the Alchemyst: The secrets of the immortal Nicholas Flamel, by Michael Scott? There are only 3 of the 6 total books so far, but they are a lot of fun. Lots of strange characters from Dr. John Dee, Hekate, Macchiavelli, The Witch of Endor, the Morrigan, and so many others. It is a lot of fun, once you get past the fact that its intended audience is younger than you are. I just figured on a website called Alchemy, many people would be interested. Unfortunately, the three books due in the series will be released one per year. So long to wait! The three already are The Alchemyst, the Magician, and the Sorceress.

www.dillonscott.com/young-adult-books/index.htm in case you want to check them out.

Thanks for reading!

Nothing to see here, move along folks.

When it coes to information in different variations, I don't mind the intended audience... got a few 'child'-information books about dragons, magicians and egypt. If nothing else, then the variety you can get is worth the gold for them. I'm always interested in different views, and in a childs book there can be a lot different then for the adult.

Never heard of these books tho, but they sound interesting - only information I got one Nicolas Flamell is through Harry Potter. I'll try to see if they got them closeby, here in Sweden, and maybe I'll get them if so

My beauty is not the shape of the body,
but the voices in you mind;
the thoughts you can't live without

No, the time period is present day, but it is Flamel's time, he is immortal in the book, and is something like 600 years old. The first three books take place over about 6 consecutive days, but in modern time.

I found these books to be quite enjoyable despite the toned down content.
Crammed full of mythology and legends, very interesting,
great for introducing someone to the mysteries out there.

But the hodgepodge gets a bit bizarre at times.
Michael Scott thinks up myth variations and interactions
that never would have occured to me.
