    Read the first book in the New York Times bestselling The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series, perfect for fans ofThe Maze Runner and Percy Jackson and the Olympians.

    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.
