The Alchemyst – Michael Scott (2007)

Twins Sophie and Josh Newman are pulled into the violent and explosive life of immortals Nicholas and Pernelle Flamel.

Caught in a deadly battle that has been raging for millennium, the twins quickly realize that they are in over their heads as they are forced into battles with characters from all walks of human mythology.

The Crow goddess the Morrigan, Bastet the cat-headed Egyptian goddess, and Dr. John Dee, the Queen’s personal occultist, astronomer, magician, and spy, and the Sphinx are the first in a line of foes the teens need to overcome.

While the Witch of Endor and Hecate are valuable allies.

The action of the book takes place over the span of 24 hours, lending urgancy to the forward movement of the plot. Thankfully, the first chapter of the second book is enclosed in the first book, which makes the wait to get to the library just a little easier.

In this book we meet:

  • Nicolas Flamel

  • Pernelle Flamel

  • Dr. John Dee

  • The Witch of Endor

  • The Morrigan

The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel Book #1

Followed By: The Magician
