He holds the secret that can end the world. The truth: Nicholas Flamel was born in Paris on September 28, 1330. Nearly 700 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 book he protects—the Book of Abraham the Mage. It's the most powerful book that has ever existed. In the wrong hands, it will destroy the world. That's exactly what Dr. John Dee plans to do when he steals it. Humankind won't know what's happening until it's too late. And if 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.

Loved the first book on this series and i'm hungry for more, I need to read so much more of this tale. It's fantastic the world Scott's paint and show us in this narration. I do want to see where this journey will get all of the characters, specially the twins, and i'm totally shipping Josh and Scathach right now. For Dee I do think he is a victim of his own greed at some point but i like his character is pretty interesting and Flamel is so odd at times but that gives him charm. I still have 4 book to go and discover where the path will end
