I had another goodreads First Reads giveaway book arrive last weekend. Free books always make a weekend better!
The Alchemyst (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel Book 1)
by Michael Scott.
Nicholas Flamel was born
in Paris on 28 September 1330. Nearly seven hundred years later, he is
acknowledged as the greatest Alchemyst of his day. It is said that he
discovered the secret of eternal life. The records show that he died in
1418. But his tomb is empty and 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. In the
wrong hands, it will destroy the world. And that's exactly what Dr. John
Dee plans to do when he steals it. Humankind won't know what's
happening until it's too late. 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 Sophie and Josh Newman are
about to find themselves in the middle of the greatest legend of all
I entered this giveaway because of - and don't laugh - Harry Potter, of course! Lol. I know that Nicholas Flamel was a real person, not just a character in Harry Potter but I can't hear the name without thinking about HP! It's pretty far down the to-read list right now, though. I'll keep you posted.
