Book Preview: The Sorceress

I know I frequently reference Gordy from The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian by Sherman Alexie, but I have good reason for invoking the spirit of Gordy right now. I promise. The Immortal Secrets of Nicholas Flamel is a series I’m going to have to read those three times that Gordy suggests. Right now, I’m still reading for the story. This story takes its characters all over the world. Scott stays true to the history of the sites he pulls into (and sometimes destroys).

The Sorceress has fantastic pacing. The story cuts between what’s happening with Flamel and the twins, Machiavelli, Billy the Kid and Dr. John Dee in such a way that you can’t stop reading because you want to know what the continued action is with one character while reading about another.

I’m honestly not sure if I haven’t skipped all the way to the results of the third reading (if you’ve read Part-time Indian, you know what I’m talking about).
