I read The Magician by Michael Scott. It was a great book, full of action, suspense, and an plot that will make you hungry for more. It has perfect combination of fantasy, mythology, and history that will lure you in. In the book, Josh and Sophie Newman had just fled from the evil Dr. Dee. Sophie has been taught in the magic of air in Ojai, California. Now it's time for Sophie to learn the magic of fire. Dr. Dee and the Dark Elders are in pursuit of Nicholas Flamel and the twins. Time is running out. Josh and Sophie Newman are the world's only hope. I would recommend this book almost anyone. It is a great series and you will lose yourself in its pages as you journey through a world of alchemy, magic, and wonders.
