The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel

Rating: It was amazing!

This is the first book in this series and it has a great start. It starts out very calm and average with twin brother and sister, Josh and Sophie Newman work at their jobs. Sophie works at a coffee shop and her brother work across the street at a bookstore. The bookstore is owned by Nicholas Flamel who, they don't know is immortal. He is the keeper of the Book of Abraham the Mage which holds the secret of never ending life and the world's secrets. It contains everything you would have ever wanted to know. Problem is that the bad guys who are after the book have found it, they destroyed the bookstore and the two witnesses happened to be Josh and Sophie, who now have no choice but to run and hide. But not only did they take the book but they also took Nicholas' wife, Perenelle, who is also very powerful and is able to use "magic" which is the power of their own personal auras. One good thing is that Josh was able to rip the last to pages of the book which are a vital part fo the book, some of the spells or rituals can not be cast without those pages so now Nicholas with the twins are looking for the book and his wife and the bad guys are looking for them to get the last two pages of the book as well as to kill Nicholas and the twins. Yet another twist to the book is that the twins are a viral part of a prophecy that Nicholas had read about in the book. Can't wait to see what happens next!

I would recommend this to: Anyone interested in supernatural situations
