Grade 6 9Scott uses a gigantic canvas for this riveting fantasy The well worn theme of saving the world from the forces of evil gets a fresh look here as he incorporates ancient myth and legend and sets it firmly, pitch perfect, in present day California At the emotional center of the tale are contemporary 15 year old twins, Josh and Sophie, who, it turns out, are potentially powerful magicians They are spoken of in a prophecy appearing in the ancient Book of Abraham the Mage, all but two pages of which have been stolen by evil John Dee, alchemist and magician The pursuit of the twins and Flamel by Dee and his allies to get the missing pages constitutes the book s central plot Amid all this exhilarating action, Scott keeps his sights on the small details of character and dialogue and provides evocative descriptions of people, mythical beings, and places He uses as his starting point the figures of the historical alchemist Nicholas Flamel and his wife, who have found the secret of immortality, along with mythical beings, including the terrifying Scottish crow goddess, the Morrigan the three faced Greek Hekate the powerful Egyptian cat goddess, Bastet and Scathach, a legendary Irish woman warrior and vegetarian vampire While there is plenty here to send readers rushing to their encyclopedias of mythology and alchemy, those who read the book at face value will simply be caught up in the enthralling story A fabulous read.Sue Giffard, Ethical Culture Fieldston School, New York City Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.
