The Magician by Michael Scott

I have recently read The Magician by Michael Scott and I really enjoyed it. This book is the second book in a series of so far 4 books, and I recommend reading the first book, The Alchemyst, before you read this book.  Anyways the genre of The Magician is Fantasy. The main characters are Josh and Sophie Newman and Nicholas Flamel. Josh and Sophie are part of a prophecy and they are chosen to save the world from the Dark Elders. There are 2 types of elders, the original and the Next Generation. These two are split up into two other groups, The Dark Elders, or the ones who want to take over the world they once owned, and the normal Elders, who accept the fact that humans now rule the world.
The Dark Elders want to rule the world and the only thing stopping them are these twins, Josh and Sophie. Dr. Dee, who is working for the Dark Elders, is chasing Nicholas Flamel, Scatty, and the twins all over Paris. While Dr. Dee is tracking them down, Nicholas is taking Josh and Sophie to masters of the elemental magics to train Josh and Sophie so they don’t fall into the wrong hands. In the magician Flamel, Josh, and Sophie, and Scatty are being chased around Paris.
I think this book is for boys and girls because there is a boy and girl main character. I really enjoyed this book and think everyone should read it.
