Inhaltsangabe

Nicholas Flamel appeared in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter - but did you know he really lived? And his secrets aren't safe! Discover the truth in book one of the New York Times best-selling series The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel. 

The truth: Nicholas Flamel's tomb is empty. 

The legend: Nicholas Flamel lives. 

Nicholas Flamel is the greatest Alchemyst to ever live. The records show that he died in 1418, but what if he's actually been making the elixir of life for centuries? 

The secrets to eternal life are hidden within the book he protects - the Book of Abraham the Mage. It's the most powerful book that has ever existed, and in the wrong hands, it will destroy the world. And that's exactly what Dr. John Dee plans to do when he steals it. 

There is one hope. If the prophecy is true, Sophie and Josh Newman have the power to save everyone. Now they just have to learn to use it. 

“The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel has everything you loved about Harry Potter, including magic, mystery, and a constant battle of good versus evil.” (Bustle)

Love it!

I really love the way Denise O‘Hare reads it. Just as emotional as it was when I read the books the first time. I love the way Michael wrote this story. It keeps you running with all the charecters, feeling everything along with them :)

A bit boring

When I bought this audiobook I was expecting something exciting like Harry Potter, but alas, I was sadly mistaken. The story is an amalgam of Greek, Egyptian and Celtic/Norsk lore. There is no real story, just a series of action, fight and flight scenes with annoying characters and no character build-up to speak of. I kept waiting for the exciting core of the story, but no such luck. The thing I appreciated so much about the Harry Potter series was the slow build-up of an exciting story that mixed the mundane with the magical. The world building happened slowly. This series seems to go the mainstream route of lots of action without real background story. I must confess, I kept falling asleep all the time while listening and was almost bored to death by the whole thing. I certainly won't be listening to the rest of the series. Clearly, not everybody can use old myths as deftly as JKR.

The reader did a good job at emulating various accents, and was pleasant to listen to.
