   Wonderful Series of Books
My boys, ages 8 and 10, absolutely loved them. This set was purchased as a present for a child who loves to read because my kids wouldn't let go of their copies. My kids tell me that these books had wonderful plots and were written in a way that held their interest, said Blair. One is destined to save the world and the other is destined to destroy an ancient world. Nicholas Flamel and his wife are looking for these twins their entire lives and are guarding the codex which has the knowledge to destroy the world or save the world. There are three main themes: magic, sorcery and ancient ruins. Recommended for kids ages 9 to 10, but not for children with special needs. Strong writing, great grammar. It's great to have your kids hold on to that last bit of magic. This is just the first part of a three-part series, and there will be more. Highly recommend.

Adaptable and Effortlessly blends historical and mythological with the modern world. Action explanations and seem to come at just the right time, and the story flows perfectly, Morgenthau said.

   Excellent read
If you like fantasy and ancient times, this set will keep you reading. I read all six books and wished they had been more. I'm an adult. It's just that easy to read. Delightful.

   Great series!
For those who like Harry Potter these books are a side story to those movies. My 12 year old son absolutely LOVES them.

   Books Were Interesting
When I ordered the series, I was told that two of the books were good, but the third was a totally unrelated book. It is, however, irritating that it happened. The books themselves were also entertaining, Simon said. Whereas other fantasy books by other authors focus on one mythical source at a time, The Lord of the Rings trilogy by Stephenie Meyer focuses on one mythical source at a time, ancient Greek Gods, wizards, Roman Gods, Norse Gods, etc. Smashing it all together, these books are truly masterpieces. The book deals with a lot of plot holes, and the fact that the writer was a fiction writer made the story seem contrived. So far, I prefer Riordan and Rowling, but this writer is not without merit.

   great for an advanced 3rd grade reader
It's a tough sell for a younger kid who reads at a high level, especially if the book deals with relationships or has a dark edge to it. This series definitely does have some killing, but it's not crazy or super evil, and it revolves around the twin-boyfriend relationship, not any sort of girlfriend stuff, Reeves said. I also liked that the author of the first book, Michael Lewis, put the reader at the center of the action. I've enjoyed it as much as my nine-year-old has, and I don't feel bad about letting him read it, Mrs Hughes said.
