Rating 8/10

This seems like a good start for a fantasy series. It was interesting, magical, had great characters and with a good ending that would make one want to pick up the next book in the series.

I read it in a few days, and it went by so quickly…

However it made me want to compile a table of fantasy books I’ve read with some of the magical creatures/powers etc. that appear in those. So for “The Alchemyst”, there’s

* magic

* alchemy, the philosophers stone and turning cheap metals into gold

* vampires

* witches and wizards

* werewolves and wereboars ­čÖé

* portals between places

and so forth.

I’d recommend this book if you’re a fantasy fan.
