Really great and page turning! I thoroughly enjoyed the mixing of all kinds of mythology and history. It really peaked my interest in other types of world mythology other than the popular Greek/Roman. The author has an endless supply of characters, pulling them from real life, fiction, and some in-between so that you never really knew what kind of character to expect next. A great and age appropriate read for kids (and adults) who like history, fantasy, and adventure.
When the legend that Nicholas Flamel lives due to his ability to make the elixir for life is discovered to be true, Dr. John Dee begins his plot to steal the Book of Abraham the Mage from him in order to rule the world, but knowing that they are the only ones with the power to stop him, Josh and Sophie quickly set their own plan in motion to do so. Reprint.
