Reviews

Gr 6-9-Michael Scott's tense sequel (Delacorte, 2008) to The Alchemyst (Delacorte, 2007) finds teen twins, Sophi and Josh, once again on the run from Dr. John Dee and the Dark Elders who are trying to obtain the book of Abraham the Mage--an item of incredible power that would allow the Dark Elders to enslave humankind and destroy the world. With most of the book in their possession, the dark servants are desperate to obtain the all-important final two pages of text. In the midst of the breathless chase, Sophi is learning to use and control her new-found powers and Josh is envious that Sophi's powers have been awakened. Josh also has his doubts about their supposed ally, Nicholas Flamel, leading him to question who the bad guys really are. The conclusion will leave listeners anxious for the next installment. Erik Singer does a laudable job giving voice to a wide range of characters, convincingly portraying everything from two modern American teenagers to ancient Italians who switch between archaic and contemporary speech. Even the language of a variety of mythical monsters comes across as authentic. Singer keeps up the pace and tension of this edgy ride perfectly, creating a wonderful listening experience.-Deanna Romriell, Salt Lake City Public Library, UT Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
