In The Alchemyst, Michael Scott weaves a tale full of magic and mythology told through the eyes of two siblings. Sophie and Josh are thrust into the world of magic and must learn to use their powers and battle powerful foes along the way. At first glance, I thought I would enjoy this book much more than I actually did. While the book has a very interesting plot, the two characters start to grow annoying after a while. The dialogue between the two teens feels somewhat artificial and forced. However, if you focus more on the big picture of the plot, it makes the book a little better. I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy fantasy and mythology books.
