It's a collection of all the short stories that Michael Scott published combined into one book! It features characters that we met throughout The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series.If you're a fan of the series, then this a must read for you! These are stand alone stories, but if you haven't read the main series, you will definitely spoil some things for yourself. The stories themselves features some of my favorite side characters from the main story, like Virginia Dare, Billy the Kid, Machiavelli, Aoife, and Scathach. Along with those that we are familiar with, the stories feature some new Immortals that you may recognize! I always love researching the new characters to learn more about them.It's hard to talk about the plot since each short story is self-contained. The short stories also vary in length, with some characters getting a lot longer stories than others. Some of the stories are also more riveting than others, but they were all enjoyable to read. I loved getting to spend more time with these characters and really enjoyed learning new things about them. In particular, I loved Virginia Dare's story since it features Edgar Allan Poe. I really enjoyed her character in the main series and was ecstatic to find out she had her own short story. It did not disappoint. She's still as badass as she was in the main series.. It was also nice to read about Aoife and Scathach and their relationship. I found myself wanting more stories about these characters since they've all lived such long, interesting lives. Michael Scott does a wonderful job of painting a picture, the imagery is just as vivid as it was in the main books.My only critique is that the ebook version had a few noticeable typographical errors throughout the book. It's not super distracting, just something I observed. I would recommend this version of the short stories since they're all combined into one book for easier access. I would recommend this book overall for fans of the main series. It's a great addition to your collection and definitely a must have!

The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel is a collection of 9 short stories in the same universe and with the same/adjunct characters as Michel Scott's main series which begins with The Alchemyst, The Magician, etc. Released 2nd Nov 2021 by Penguin Random House on their Delacorte imprint, it's 512 pages and is available in hardcover, audio, and ebook formats. It's worth noting that the ebook format has a handy interactive table of contents as well as interactive links and references throughout. I've really become enamored of ebooks with interactive formats lately. These are engaging grand stories, beautifully written. For fans of the main series, these stories are side trips, with more thorough explorations into the background of many of the characters who are secondary in the books (Aiofe, Scathach, Billy the Kid, Machiavelli, and Virginia Dare). This collection induced a deep and heartfelt "aaaah" from me because I found myself in the novels really -wanting- to know more about them, and this collection does just that. The author has a rare gift with characterization and descriptive prose and all of the stories flow very well. Ostensibly marketed as YA, fans of speculative fiction will be enthralled whatever their age. I'd recommend that readers be at the higher age end of YA; there's some fairly hefty action contained here which might not be entirely appropriate for younger readers. Nothing egregious, but a couple descriptions scared my socks off. Top shelf fiction, wonderfully written and transporting. For readers who only know the name Nicholas Flamel from Harry Potter - this is not even tangentially related. For readers who seek out this collection because of Scott's main series, you're in for a treat. I also loved the generous length of these stories. The author isn't afraid to give them the length and development they need. A couple of the stories could probably be more precisely described as novella length. Five stars. I can only think of a couple times I've rated story collections or anthologies 5 stars, and this collection richly deserves the distinction.Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.

Discover the truth now!Book Review:This short story collection has eight stories. When I average out the star ratings for each story it comes to around a 3-star rating.The first story is Aoife of the shadow which I gave s stars. This is about one twin sister who is in the shadows mourning the loss of her sister. It goes through how the loss happens. By the way her sister isn’t dead they just aren’t speaking to each other. The story was a bit long and I got bored.Story Two: Scathoch The Shadow and the Clan of Eriu was a 4-star read. This is the twin sister to Aoife. Scathoch is lost and is trying to find way to help someone she knows. On her way she is attacked by the Eriu. The Eriu didn’t attack her to hurt her they were trying to protect her by not allowing her to enter a certain area. You will have to read the story to find out why.Story Three: Nicholas Flamel and the Codex. I gave this story 3.5 stars. This story tells you how they got the Codex.Story Four: The Death of Joan of Arc. I gave this story 4 stars. Did Joan of Arc really die or was she saved. You will have to read the story.Story Five: Machiavelli: Guardian of Paris. I gave this story 3 stars. Machiavelli guards Paris. Things are happening there that shouldn’t. He goes on an adventure to find out what is going on and to put a stop to it.Story Six: Virginia Dare and The Rat Catcher. I gave this story 3 stars. Who is the rat catcher? Why is Virigina Dare after him? This is about a captain who has 13 packages that need to be delivered to a swampy area in the middle of night. What is in the packages and why deliver them at night? Read the story to find out.Story Seven: Nicholas and the Krampus. I gave this story 3 stars. This actually is about Santa Claus. Santa Claus tricks Nicholas and wife into going on a trip with him. The Krampus wants to get rid of Santa Claus and the Flamels need to stop it from happening or there will be no Christmas.Story Eight: Billy the Kid and the Vampyres of Vegas. I gave this story 4 stars. Billy is in Vegas for a fun time and the Vampyres want to get rid of him.That was a quick review of each story. It was hard keeping it simple, and I know very vague, but I didn’t want to give much away. If you want to learn more, you will have to read the book.

    Michael Scott wrote nine short stories about some of the characters appearing in his excellent 6-book series, The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel. For unknown reasons, I think this compendium only includes seven of the nine. Some of the stories are very good: the story about Nicholas and Perenelle obtaining the Codex and the story of Nicolas Machiavelli saving Paris. Some were not: the one about the Shadow Twins (Aoife and Scathach) and the one about Joan of Arc. The rest were decent.I l Michael Scott wrote nine short stories about some of the characters appearing in his excellent 6-book series, The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel.

Some were not: the one about the Shadow Twins (Aoife and Scathach) and the one about Joan of Arc. The rest were decent.I liked this observation: Cities from the air are the most magical of places—you can see their twists and curls, the sweep of roads and stretches of boulevards. London is a scattered mystery from the air; the black line of the Seine cuts through Paris, emphasizing the straight lines of the boulevards and the confusion of narrow side streets; Rome is a wonderful jigsaw; Hong Kong is a glittering jewel. New York is different. The straight lines make it look like a child’s drawing of what a city should look like…until you get to the big rectangle of Central Park cut out of the middle, which looks like someone erased the center of the drawing.

    This is a collection of short stories set in the world of the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series by Micheal Scott, with characters we know from the series.These stories followed a favorite character or two at a time as they had to defeat some sort of evil. My favorite stories were the ones including Scathach, though Machiavelli's chapter was also quite good. Also, I would've liked to learn more about Marethyu! A short story from his perspective would've been so cool!The way they were This is a collection of short stories set in the world of the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series by Micheal Scott, with characters we know from the series.These stories followed a favorite character or two at a time as they had to defeat some sort of evil. My favorite stories were the ones including Scathach, though Machiavelli's chapter was also quite good. Also, I would've liked to learn more about Marethyu! A short story from his perspective would've been so cool!The way they were written and maybe partially due to being short stories, there seemed to be a lot of build up in the form of "oh, no this thing is super scary and dangerous, no way we're going to survive!" and then they proceed to defeat it relatively easily. Maybe a bit of sloppy writing? However, I didn't mind too much, they were still fun to read.Anyways, this was a fun read, and overall, I think I enjoyed it more than most of the actual series, which I feel bad saying considering how much more planning and time must have gone into those books. You could probably read this without reading the Nicholas Flamel series, but you might be a bit lost in the overall world building. But if you don't mind that and this sounds interesting, go ahead!

Two of the novellas were published many years ago, the rest are newer works. I was disappointed that not all of the “lost stories” are included with this volume. Goodreads says it is #1-9, yet there are only 7 to 8 stories, depending on if you group the first two together (like Goodreads does). I enjoyed the stories and visiting these beloved characters and it could have only been better if all the stories were included.

    This was the book series I read growing up while everyone else read Harry Potter. For this reason, it brought back so many fond memories. The excitement I experienced while waiting for the next book to be released was felt when I happened to come across this gem at the local bookstore. I would recommend reading the series first as these stories are very much shortened and do not capture the complexities of the world/characters. One last thing: Why has none of the series been turned into a movie? This was the book series I read growing up while everyone else read Harry Potter.

    ❤️❤️❤️❤️ I adore this book, I've missed these characters so much and reading these short stories was just a wonderful adventure for me. Virginia Dare, Niccolo Machiavelli, Billy the kid, the Flamel's, Scatty and her sister Aoife. William Shakespeare and Edgar Allan Poe even Saint Nicolas! I was in a whirlwind of adventures all over the world, inserted in action packed journeys with these amazing characters. I'll definitely re read it more slowly this time and savor every second.

Stepping back into the world of Nicholas Flamel, Scathach & Aoife, Machiavelli, Shadowrealms, and the Elders was so delightful. Each story was engaging and this book pleasantly surpassed my expectations. I love how short the chapters are. It makes for a quick read, despite the size of the book. It’s also nice that they are all compiled together in one volume. I had read one or two previously, and wanted to read the others, but it can be hard to track down a single novella. For thise who enjoyed the series and want to explore more of the Flamels’ world, I highly recommend this book. I was provided an eARC of this book by Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    The short stories are a wonderful accompaniment to the series that Micheal Scott wrote on Nicholas Flamel. Even if you haven't read "The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel" series, these stories will delight.These can be read as a standalone but you will be drawn in to reading the series. While these books are cataloged as Young Adult; They can be enjoyed by adults too. I totally enjoyed reading each entry and wish there were more!

    Wonderful little book that dips back into the SINF universe and gives us some more about our favorite characters- my personal favorite stories were the Shadow Twins stories with Aoife and Scathach. They're all decent to very good though, and my only complaint is a few typos that really didn't impact my enjoyment of the book.

    Pretty good. The first and a few of the other stories would be worthy of novel-length treatment. I was disappointed that the final story was verbatim a story already published and purchased by me as a lost story. That spoiled the experience a little for me ending with a whimper. PS. I googled up Sétanta and this story quotes the info I found there verbatim at times. Curious.

    Very interesting book. I have a feeling I would have understood it much better if I had already read the original series of books. But it definitely makes me want to read the original series more than when I added it to my to-read list.
