So if anyone of you know me and follow this blog, you know that I love to read and I will read anything and everything. That includes YA books and I recently just finished a 6 book YA Fantasy series The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel. It is a series that mixes a lot of mythology from all over the world, combining myths and legends to form a modern day mythos of the world. I did like that he explained all the mythologies mixing together by saying all the gods of the world originally all came from the same place (think of a very large and advanced Atlantis). As someone who loves mythology and mixes it into her own writing, I really liked some of the concepts of these novels, however the execution did seem awkward and rushed in some places. Still these were fun and fast reads, something light to read when the harsh news of the world is getting you down. I would give the series a 3.5 star rating.
Author, artist, jewelry maker and all around creative person. I write in many genres and have a lot of fun doing so. Please take a look around and enjoy!
