Nicholas Flamel appeared in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter—but did you know he really lived? And his secrets aren't safe! Discover the truth in book one of the New York Times bestselling series the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel.
 
The truth: Nicholas Flamel's tomb is empty.
 
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.
    There is one hope. If the prophecy is true, Sophie and Josh Newman have the power to save everyone. Now they just have to learn to use it. 

“The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel has everything you loved about Harry Potter, including magic, mystery, and a constant battle of good versus evil.”—Bustle

    " Sometimes we need time to travel in our minds to other universes, to other realms. This series of The Alchemyst not only transferred me to times where we "were" so special, but it also taught me a key thing about HUMANI: the power is within me yet we do not know that. We need somebody else to awaken the power within us. How true is that... "

    " I've been reading teen/young adult fiction a lot these days. This is an adventurous story of a brother and sister and their ties to an alchemyst - the first book in a series of several. It's geared more for theyounger readers - I woud say anywhere from 4th grade up. I finished the first book quckly but bogged down on the second ook and haven't completed it yet. "

    " I would not recommend this book series. I found the story itself to be interesting, but slow moving. The use of mythological characters is unique, certainly, but also somewhat confusing. Nothing felt quite thought out, and everything felt like it was setting up for a series (which it is) rather than telling a story in itself. The writing is derivative and repetitive; the author constantly repeats information, in case we forgot it from last chapter, or tells you what characters are thinking or feeling when it is or should be obvious from the events going on. The reader of the audiobook did a credible job bringing this story to life, but could not overcome the insipid writing. I find myself drawn to book 2 out of train-wreck curiosity only, and regret the choice. I apologize for my harsh words to the author, and look forward to his next project, whatever it may be, as it will come with more experience and hopefully less straight-to-series marketing. "

    " Good book, but the setting of the book in the beginning was not very well suited "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill | 1/15/2014

    " My question throughout was: if you are the "world's greatest alchemist" why do you need the book to mix an elixir you have been making and taking monthly for 500 years? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allison | 1/14/2014

    " Wow. This book and its series would make a pretty great movie. "

    " It's soooooo good, and interesting!!! It defenetly makes you think and omg Scatach is such a cool character!!! XD "

    " Much like 39 Clues and The Percy Jackson. middle schoolers who love Harry Potter might like this "

    " GOod series; lots of interwoven myths and legends; my kids also enjoyed; good for teens "

    " It starts out to be a very promising series with a very interesting plot. I was very interested in it the whole way through. "

    " I did not like this book. :| Almost all of the characters are lame. The twins are specially ANNOYING. I don't think I'll be reading the next books of this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachael | 10/13/2013

    " Really enjoyed the entire series, even if they did tend to fall off toward the end. "

    " Great book! Really got sucked into this one! Read this one pretty fast. Wanting to read the whole series. "

    " This book is my definition for a cliff hanger. Not that that's a bad thing but it didn't make me want to go and read the rest of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 9/20/2012

    " Meh. To be honest, the reasons I don't like this book can really all be attributed to the target age of the book. With 16 year old protagonists, I expected it to be a bit more YA, but I think it's aimed at a younger audience. I think young me would have liked it, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Francoise | 6/13/2011

    " Enjoyable, thoroughly a blast, Exciting! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sydney | 9/27/2010

    " I'll generously give this book a three. The plot line was well thought out and I liked the mythology, but it was very slow. It took me about three months to read and I didn't retain most of it when most books I can read within a day and remember at least 80% of it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sue | 6/21/2010

    " Great characters and interesting story but so obviously written for the big screen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 6/14/2009

    " Action-packed page-turner, for sure--eagerly anticipating Book 2! My only complaint is that I wish the author would delve a little deeper into the feelings of the main characters so I could become a bit more emotionally connected to them--maybe as the series continues? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bea | 1/5/2008

    " A combination of all the myths in the world --- exactly my type. The characters are rich and colorful. "

    " Recommended by a friend. It was a quick read, and an interesting story, but didn't strike me as the book that it was built up to be. "

    " Kuciwa ah... sugan teh bakal rame, secara ratingna alus. Ceuk kuring mah asa kurang gereget. Dina adegan2 anu genting, teu karasa tegangna, teuing kunaon. Dialogna kitu anu kurang tek-tok? "
