I liked the description of Yggdrasil too, but also the first meeting with Scatty

I looved that part and The fight at the Witch of Endors place. But, of course, the whole book was EPIC!!!! And let's not forget the fight at Scatty's dojo.

Yes it is! I also thought that the Yggdrasil getting destroyed was amazing. And one the bridge with all the birds...that part kinda freaked me out, how they were all over the car and doing all that. These are all my favorite parts!

You're right. It's full of action, man flamelssecret/clap3.gif

Include the Yggdrasil's destruction, and it is the most epic moment! flamelssecret/forum trolls.gif

I've read The Alchemyst at least a dozen times just to myself, and five times out loud to sixth graders at school, and I honestly never noticed this before:

On page 225 of the US Edition, just before her Awakening, Sophie asks Nicholas, "We're going to be trained as magicians?"

Flamel's reply is: "As magicians and sorcerers, as necromancers, warlocks and even enchanters."

Doesn't that sound great for, like, a series of books... flamelssecret/clap3.gif

Aura color: Plaid.
Scent: Cilantro.

My favorite character is Scathach easily from this book but for the whole series she and prometheus are just behind Mach

I haven't noticed this Papa Pat, after reading this it lead me to think that enchanters and enchantresses are the highest level of magic user.

Another thing that might be worthy of note: Flamel doesn't tell the twins that they'll be trained as Alchemysts/Alchemists. Does this mean that alchemy is NOT going to be on their training list, or does it mean that Flamel himself will do the alchemycal teaching? Or something else entirely.

Wish May would hurry up and get here! flamelssecret/crying.gif

There is a lot of science involved in Alchemy than any branch of magic whereas with others imagination is a crucial component, maybe he didn't mention it because it takes more time compared to others to master this art. I believe it was Perenelle who said that she never was a good alchemist because it needs focus and concentration, and she lets her imagination run wild.
