The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel
The truth:�Nicholas Flamel was born in Paris on September 28, 1330. The records show that he died in 1418. But his tomb is empty. The legend:�Nicholas Flamel lives. 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, and in the wrong hands, it will destroy the world. Which is exactly what Dr. John Dee plans to do when he steals it. 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.
