About book: I was torn over the ending to the Alchemist series. Sure, it was a wonderful series, and I'm glad I read through it all, but it wasn't my absolute favorite.On one hand, I feel like most of the plot lines received satisfying conclusions and most of the major questions were answered.On the other hand, there were plenty of other plot lines that were either hastily addressed or not addressed at all. For example, when Josh became the hook-handed man at the end, I felt like that was a lazy plot twist to make up for the fact that Josh never completed his training. It was as if the author was saying, "Oh, it's okay that Josh never learned Earth magic because his hook made him omniscient." (I know that sentence sounds completely ridiculous, but it does make sense if you've read the full ending.)Also, the final couple of lines don't make sense to me. First of all, the Flamels were near death the last time we saw them, so I doubt that they could have survived for a full month before attending Aoife's wedding. And speaking of Aoife, she had been out of the picture since the end of Book Four! The author gave absolutely no explanation about how she was able to defeat Coatlicue and return home for her wedding.The time travel paradox regarding the twins bothered me most of all. They gain their ultimate powers (and Josh his hook) thousands of years before their adventures with the Flamels, yet they are almost completely ordinary when their adventures begin. How is that? Did they somehow lose their powers? Do their 'ordinary' selves and their 'superpowered' selves simultaneously exist in the same timeline?I sincerely hope the author can explain all of these inconsistencies.I know that I've done a lot of complaining in this review, but I did love these books. The Alchemist series is definitely in the top ten list of series I've read, maybe even the top five. In fact, I'd like to re-read this series sometime. I'm sure it'll be just as exhilarating the second time around. SPOILERS AHEAD!!! ALERT, ALERT! This book is amazing because it has an aspect of every element. I think that every book should make the reader have powerful emotion, and this book did. At the end, once I found out out who Marethyu was, I felt happy and sad at the same time. I also feel though, that the author rushed the end, and didn't finish or describe Josh destroying Danu Talis. He also didn't explain what happened when Sophie and Josh met again. When I finished the book I cried I was so sad that I was done. I loved the Enchantress. Michael Scott is a great author.Varsha V.
