Continued the torrid pace of the first two books. The twins of Legend continue to battle the Dark Elders, with action in London and Alcatraz this time. ( )

This book was good! However not the best. I found it has similar issues throughout all the books so far being it kind of drags on? It's not terribly drawn out but I do feel at times that the author put as much as he could down to fill the quota. Kind of like when I'm writing an essay and don't quite reach the word minimum. Now, I'm not saying it's bad or boring. In fact I quite like the series! Reading some of these other reviews I would say I might be in the minority here (at least in the written reviews) but I do genuinely enjoy the storyline! Not only that but I feel like the characters do act and react in a very realistic manner. I mean some guy you work with brings you into a world you don't know of and your life gets put in danger what seems like every hour of the day, I too would host some reservations. Is it annoying? Sure it can be, but it's also more realistic. I mean we as a reader can see multiple points of view and these characters cannot. These kids especially are trying to make decisions and they are right to feel frustrated and untrustworthy of a guy who will never give them answers or if he does it feels like only half of an answer. The fact that Nicolas won't tell them everything doesn't quite make sense to me however, especially because he knows it's making the twins doubt him and the cause, so why he wouldn't just lay it out flat? I don't know if I'll ever understand. Another thing I don't quite get is how fast auras recharge? It seems like Nicolas never has any and I mean even the slightest amount of aura even if he's been resting and asleep for a while or hasn't used his aura in big ways for a while. However, Dee and Machiavelli who have also been drained of their aura also have bounced right back and are ready like an hour later. Now with how much I've questioned you might be thinking, my god why 4stars then? why not fewer? And that is because overall I do actually enjoy reading this. sure I might question or not understand maybe even dislike certain things the author has done, but I have enjoyed it. I have been in such a reading funk recently and this book (and the past two) have actually made me stay up to finish reading a chapter or two. I WANTED to go and read more and I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. The chapters were short enough where I could pick up and read a chapter or two in no time and it made me feel like I could finish it. Not only that I never got bored reading it, everything that happened it happened one after another and it kept me engaged. I can't wait to start the next book in the series! ( )

I am loving this series. The books are fun, imaginative and easy to read. I enjoy seeing the way the author has worked to make legends and myths come alive in today's world. I highly recommend these books. ( )

This series continues to get exponentially better with each new installment. In this third book, Flamel, Josh, and Sophie are on the run in London–Dee’s home turf–so they need to be extra careful. They meet up with Gilgamesh to learn how to control water.

All I can say about this book is wow! I love how much focus is on Perenelle in this one. She’s easily my favorite character, so I enjoyed getting to learn more of her backstory and reading about her completely subverting all the horrible plans the Dark Elders have for her. She’s truly a force you don’t want to mess with, and I love watching her prove that again and again, even when the odds are stacked so completely against her. What’s great is that the way she gets out of situations never seems improbably are too coincidental; she just uses her smarts and thinks outside the box, which is fun. I greatly enjoyed her character arc in this book.

Josh continues to annoy me, but I think that’s just what his character is going to do for the whole series. I find him too whiny, though he has gotten a little bit better since the first book. He’s at least more bearable and likeable in this book, which is nice. The immortals who are introduced in this book are super fun and very much a surprise. I hope we get to see more of them. These books are also really starting to rev up in action; this one certainly seems nonstop. It’s full of battles and struggles and running away; the world has a nice foundation, so Michael Scott is just amping up the plot at this point. While the main story is mostly resolved by the end, The Sorceress very much hangs on a cliffhanger, so have the fourth book ready if you know that’s going to bother you.

I’m very much enjoying this ride through this fantasy world and can’t wait to pick up book 4!

Scott's been hinting at the fact that Perenelle Flamel is more powerful than she seems, but this entry starts to back that up. The frenetic pace of the series is starting to catch up with me - it's difficult to keep track of events, characters, or even the books. Every blends together in a blur. ( )
