The AlchemystBook - 2007
The truth: Nicholas Flamel was born in Paris on September 28, 1330.
The legend: Nicholas Flamel discovered the secret of eternal life.
The records show that he died in 1418.
But his tomb is empty.
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.
" [A] A riveting fantasy ...While there is plenty here to send readers rushing to their encyclopedias...those who read the book at face value will simply be caught up in the enthralling story. A fabulous read. "-- SLJ , Starred

This pair goes on an incredible adventure joined by the "immortal" alchemist Nicholas Flamel.

Between secrets, lies, and an newly rediscovered magical world, the twins must decide which side has the real heroes.
This book is about two fifteen-year-old twins, Sophie, and Josh, who are suddenly thrust into a magical world they know nothing about.

Luckily, they have one person on their side...Nicholas Flamel and his wife support the twins, while they go through a rollercoaster of problems, all because of a prophecy and a book. An ancient book that holds the secret formulas for eternal life.
