I really enjoyed this book, it is very fun and I love that the characters come from mythology from all over the world.

For those who love Harry Potter

This book stood out from any book I've read. It is so creative and intriguing. I loved how there was so much mystery and the author left me with so many questions. It's engaging and interesting! I enjoyed getting to know the characters better and the new complicated magic! It was Fantastic! If you loved the Harry Potter series or fantasy, this is the book for you!


This book is a fine start to a fun series, filled with good characters and great action (on occasion almost too much action?) I particularly enjoy the settings and the appearances by characters from history and from myth and legend.

Books 1-5 are all great fun. I am impatiently waiting in line for book 6.


I have not finished this book yet but what I have read, I loved. Before school got out my teacher told me that if I liked the Percy Jackson and the Olympians, that I would like this series. I am very excited to finish reading this book and the rest of The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series.


This book was an amazing book, and it made a good start to the series.

I really enjoyed this book.

I really enjoyed this book. I was told that if you enjoyed the Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull, than I would enjoy this book. I did enjoy the read, but the ending wasn't too satisfying.


it's just fantastic
