Finished reading on August 3, 2013
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
* alchemy, the philosophers stone and turning cheap metals into gold
* witches and wizards
* werewolves and wereboars 🙂
* portals between places
and so forth.
I’d recommend this book if you’re a fantasy fan.
