The Alchemyst's Apprentice

For Kayla, Avril, and Yzrael (nicknames).

amicis omnia saecula

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.

And they are.

Sophie and Josh are the twins of prophecy and they did save the world from coming to an end. The Book of Abraham the Mage is in safe hands of the hook-handed man, but he did not know that there is a hidden prophecy from the book.

And know the world is again in danger. And four friends are the only ones with the power to save the world now.
