The Magician (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, #2)The Magician by Michael Scott

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I'm a bit embarrassed to say I'm hooked on this series. Maybe it's the puzzle of how the author is going to bring in various mythologies and historical/legendary figures. Sometimes it's the locales. I'm not saying it's high art--it's Young Adult fantasy, and not the best. But it's readable, compelling at times in its plotting (if I read it just before I start to drive somewhere I find myself wondering what's going to happen next, which is generally a good sign), and the characters are reasonably complex.

As a diversion, I really think it succeeds.
