Description-
  • Read the fourth book in the New York Times bestselling The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series, perfect for fans of The Maze Runner and Percy Jackson and the Olympians.

    San Francisco:

    After fleeing to Ojai, then Paris, and escaping to London, Josh and Sophie Newman are finally home. And after everything they've seen and learned in the past week, they're both more confused than ever about their future. Neither of them has mastered the magics they'll need to protect themselves from the Dark Elders, they've lost Scatty, and they're still being pursued by Dr. John Dee. Most disturbing of all, however, is that now they must ask themselves, can they trust Nicholas Flamel? Can they trust anyone?

    Alcatraz:

    Dr. Dee underestimated Perenelle Flamel's power. Alcatraz could not hold her, Nereus was no match for her, and she was able to align herself with the most unlikely of allies. But she wasn't the only one being held on the island. Behind the prison's bars and protective sigils were a menagerie of monsters-an army for Dee to use in the final battle. And now Machiavelli has come to Alcatraz to loose those monsters on San Francisco.

    Perenelle might be powerful, but each day she weakens, and even with Nicholas back at her side, a battle of this size could be too much for her. Nicholas and Perenelle must fight to protect the city, but the effort will probably kill them both.

    London:

    Having been unable to regain the two final pages of the Codex, Dee has failed his Elder and is now an outlaw-and the new prey of all the creatures formerly sent to hunt down Flamel.

    But Dee has a plan. With the Codex and the creatures on Alcatraz, he can control the world. All he needs is the help of the Archons. But for his plan to work, he must raise the Mother of the Gods from the dead. For that, he'll have to train a necromancer. And the twins of legend will make the perfect pupils. . .

Excerpts-
  • Chapter ONE

    "Never thought we'd ever see this place again." Sophie Newman grinned and looked at her brother.

    "Never thought I'd be so happy to see it," Josh said. "It looks . . . I don't know. Different."

    "It looks the same," his twin answered. "We're the ones who've changed."

    Sophie and Josh were walking down Scott Street in Pacific Heights, heading for their aunt Agnes's house on the corner of Sacramento Street. They had last seen the house six days earlier--Thursday, May 31--when they had left for work, Sophie at the coffee shop, Josh in the bookstore. It had started as just another ordinary day, but it had turned out to be the last ordinary day they would ever experience.

    That day their world had changed forever; they too had changed, both physically and mentally. "What do we tell her?" Josh asked nervously. Aunt Agnes was eighty-four, and although they called her aunt, she was not actually related to them by blood. Sophie thought she might have been their grandmother's sister . . . or cousin, or maybe just a friend, but she had never been quite sure. Aunt Agnes was a sweet but grumpy old lady who fussed and worried if they were even five minutes late. She drove both Sophie and Josh crazy and reported back to their parents about every single thing they did.

    "We keep it simple," Sophie said. "We stick to the story we told Mom and Dad--first the bookshop closed because Perenelle wasn't feeling well, and then the Flamels . . ."

    "The Flemings," Josh corrected her.

    "The Flemings invited us to stay with them in their house in the desert."

    "And why did the bookshop close?"

    "Gas leak."

    Josh nodded. "Gas leak. And where's the house in the desert?"

    "Joshua Tree."

    "OK, I got it."

    "Are you sure? You're a terrible liar."

    Josh shrugged. "I'll try. You know we're going to get grilled."

    "I know. And that's even before we have to talk to Mom and Dad."

    Josh nodded. He glanced over at Sophie. He'd been mulling something over for the past few days, and figured this would be the perfect time to bring it up. "I've been thinking," he said slowly. "Maybe we should just tell them the truth."

    "The truth?" Sophie's expression remained unchanged and the twins continued walking, crossing Jackson Street. They could see their aunt's white wooden Victorian house three blocks away.

    "What do you think?" Josh asked, when his sister said nothing more.

    Finally Sophie nodded. "Sure, we could." She brushed a few strands of blond hair out of her eyes and looked at her brother. "But just let me get this straight first. We're going to tell Mom and Dad that their entire life's work has been for nothing. That everything they have ever studied--history, archaeology and paleontology--is wrong." Her eyes sparkled. "I think it's a great idea. But I'll let you go ahead and do it, and I'll watch."

    Josh shrugged uncomfortably. "OK, OK, so we don't tell them."

    "Not yet, in any case."

    "Agreed, but it'll come out sooner or later. You know how impossible it is to keep secrets from them. They always know everything."

    "That's because Aunt Agnes tells them," Sophie muttered.

    A sleek black stretch limousine with tinted windows drove slowly past them, the driver leaning forward, checking addresses on the tree-lined street. The car signaled and pulled in farther down the block.

    Josh indicated the limo with a jerk of his chin. "That's weird. It looks like it's stopping outside Aunt Agnes's."

    Sophie looked up disinterestedly. "I just wish there was someone we could talk to," she murmured. "Someone like Gilgamesh." Her blue eyes magnified with sudden tears. "I hope...
