The Alchemyst

Born in Paris nearly seven hundred years ago, Nicholas Flamel is revered as the greatest alchemyst of his day, said to have discovered the secret of immortality. Records show that he died in 1418. But his tomb is empty…

Nicholas Flamel lives – and the secret of eternal life is hidden within the book he protects. It is the most powerful book that has ever existed. In the wrong hands, it will destroy the world. And that’s exactly what evil occultist Dr John Dee plans to do when he steals it. Humankind won’t know what’s happening until it’s much too late. But a prophecy says that Sophie and Josh Newman have the power to save the world. Some legends are true. And these young twins are about to find themselves inside the greatest legend of all time…
