12 Days of Christmas! Day 9- The Alchemyst: The Immortal Secrets of Nicholas Flamel

The Alchemyst

The Immortal Secrets of Nicholas Flamel

By Michael Scott

One of my absolute favourite more recent YA book series.  These books are the most amazing mixture of history and fantasy.  Some historical people/creatures/gods make appearances, and most of the time they are portrayed acting the same way that they would have during their life span.  With tons of twists and turns, there is always something bigger and more surprising around the corner, even if you think you've figured out what is going on.

Two teenagers, Sophie and Josh, become involved in a legend.  The legend of Nicholas Flamel.  Supposedly Flamel can never age, and his secret is in a particular book.  A book that Dr. John Dee intends to steal.  A book that could have dire consequences in the wrong hands.

These books are incredibly hard to put down.  Buy them and you will be living with legends, Sophie, and Josh for a while.
