About this item

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.

"From the Hardcover edition."

I'm a huge JK Rowlings, Harry Potter Fan and have been looking for something as enjoyable and magical to read. This is it. It's geared to a bit older group, I think pre-teens, teens and those of us who enjoy going back to younger years will enjoy the read. It's captivating and takes to you to another place while keeping you in today. I highly recommend to any and all who enjoy fantasy/magical reading. Just the fact the main characters named were touched on in Harry Potters first book with Dumbledore is what caught my attention. I kept half expecting "Nick" to refer to him at any time. Mr. Scott does an excellent job of describing and helping you picture the scenes and worlds you enter. Enjoy the read, the Magician is just as good and I look forward to more...

I love this series. I already own three of the books so I was searching for the first book in the series to start completing my collection and I found it here for only five dollars and I was so happy. The book arrived a day before it was scheduled to and was in perfect condition. I will definitely buy more books from walmart online!
