The legend: Nicholas Flamel lives.

   Nicholas Flamel is the greatest Alchemyst to ever live. The records show that he died in 1418, but what if he's actually been making the elixir of life for centuries?
    The secrets to eternal life are 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. And that's exactly what Dr. John Dee plans to do when he steals it.

Great series

I'm 22 and I work at a middle school. I bought this book for one of my students and ended liking it myself. It's a fun read you won't be able to put down the series. My student and I are waiting for the fifth book to come out this summer.

Just A Good Read

Fantasy Adventure has always spoken volumes to me. 35 years later and fiction such as The Alchemist, just resonates with me. Filling my man/young-adolescent dreams with answers and possibilities for the question I have always asked, “what if these Fictions of grand adventure and good vs. evil fantasy is based on truth,” and if so, “how would the truth be brought up to 20th century comprehension?”

This book and series, just makes those questions to finally have an answer. Albeit a spectacular and far-fetched adventure with facts pulled to give the story a surreal credibility.

I love it and will continue to recycle this series till I can no longer pick up a book. Glad I discovered this series 9 years ago.

Wow

I was worried about this book. At the beginning it was how I expected it to be; Nothing special then it amazed me how great it turned out to be. It's creative and keeps getting better. I had this book read in a few days and I'm ready for the next one!
