2010 book 91

Michael Scott's The Sorceress
Not that this isn't a fun series to read, but it has a few problems that make it kind of a lesser series. Namely, all the action so far--in three books--has taken place in less than a week, which leaves little time for realistic character development. And on that same note, two of the protagonists--the teenagers with A Special Destiny--aren't particularly interesting or likable. Plus the villains come off as completely incompetent when they should be terrifying. Still, the titular sorceress, Peregrine Flamel, is a great character, gutsy and smart, and this book was worth reading for her alone.
