I am so very excited today. For the first time, like ever, I actually won a competition that I entered. I enter so many competitions on blogs and stuff, but I never win anything. So I was so very excited to receive an e-mail telling me that I had one a competition! Woo, go me. Haha.
What I one was a book called The Alchemyst by Michael Scott, I am really excited to read it. It sounds really interesting.
Here's the blurb for anyone that is interested:
He holds the secret that can end the world.
The truth: Nicolas Flamel was born in Paris on 28 September 1330. Nearly seven hundred years later, he is acknowledged as the greatest Alchemyst of his day. It is said that he discovered the secret of eternal life.
The records show that he died in 1418. But his tomb is empty.
The Legend: Nicholas Flamel lives. But only because he has been making the elixir of life for centuries. The secret of eternal life is hidden within the powerful book he protects - the Book of Abraham the Mag. In the wrong hands, it will destroy the world.
That's exactly what Dr. John See plans to do when he steals it. Human kind won't know what's happening until it's too late. And is the prophecy is right, Sophie and Josh Newman are the only ones with the power to save the world as we know it.
Sometimes legends are true.
And Sophie and Josh Newman are about to find themselves in the middle of the greatest legend of all time.
Sounds pretty cool right :) I will probably post a review when I read it, but that won't be for a little while. I just borrow out like a heap of books from the library yesterday that I am really excited to start reading!
Anyway, so I would just like to thank Jess over at The Tales Compendium for the chance to win this awsome book :) If you haven't already go check out her site. Her reviews are awsome. So thank you!
