Michael Scott


Book Three in The New York Times bestselling series.

Nicholas Flamel's heart almost broke as he watched his beloved Paris crumble before him. The city was destroyed by Dee and Machiavelli, but Flamel played his own role in the destruction. Sophie and Josh Newman show every sign of being the twins of prophecy, and Flamel had to protect them and the pages from the Dark Elders.

But Nicholas grows weaker with each passing day. Perenelle is still trapped in Alcatraz, and now that Scatty has gone missing, the group is without protection. Except for Clarent—the twin sword to Excalibur. But Clarent’s power is unthinkable, its evil making it nearly impossible to use without its darkness seeping into the soul of whoever wields it.

If he hopes to defeat Dee, Nicholas must find an Elder who can teach Josh and Sophie the third elemental magic—Water Magic. The problem? The only one who can do that is Gilgamesh, and he is quite, quite insane.

The Alchemyst

  • The magical battle in the bookshop between Flamel and his enemy, Dr John Dee.
  • A terrifying chase across the Golden Gate bridge.

  • And then south to Ojai to meet a famous Elder.  Unfortunately, Dee arrives there too and the scene is set for the final battle

The Magician

  • Magically transported to Paris, France, the twins encounter another of Flamel's enemies: Niccolo Machiavelli.
  • Protected by the ancient warrior Scathach, they are rescued by Flamel's old student, a master of fire.
  • When Dee arrives in Paris he calls upon an ancient prehistoric creature to attack St Germain's house. Scott draws upon his vast knowledge of world mythology to conjure up one of the great monsters and the chase across Paris is thrilling.
  • In the catacombs beneath the city, they encounter The Sleeping God and Josh is made a dangerous offer.
  • And finally, before Notre Dame Cathedral, Scott once again mixes the real and the magical to fashion and extraordinary and thrilling climax.


He holds the secret that can end the world.

The truth: Nicholas Flamel was born in Paris on September 28, 1330. Nearly 700 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.

The legend: Nicholas Flamel lives. But only because he has been making the elixir of life for centuries. 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. 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 time....

After fleeing Ojai, Nicholas, Sophie, Josh, and Scatty emerge in Paris, the City of Lights. Home for Nicholas Flamel. Only this homecoming is anything but sweet. Perenell is still locked up back in Alcatraz and Paris is teeming with enemies. Nicollo Machiavelli, immortal author and celebrated art collector, is working for Dee. He’s after them, and time is running out for Nicholas and Perenell. For every day spent without the Book of Abraham the Mage, they age one year—their magic becoming weaker and their bodies more frail. For Flamel, the Prophesy is becoming more and more clear.

It’s time for Sophie to learn the second elemental magic: Fire Magic. And there’s only one man who can teach it to her: Flamel’s old student, the Comte de Saint-Germain—alchemist, magician, and rock star. Josh and Sophie Newman are the world’s only hope—if they don’t turn on each other first....

From Michael Scott, author of Haynes’s highly successful biography of Barry Sheene, here is a fabulous series of character studies of the premier motorcycle racers, from bomber pilot Les Graham, who won the first 500cc World Championship in 1949, to American, Nicky Hayden, boasting the Number 1 plate in 2007 MotoGP, and on to the 2007 champion. Famous names like Mike Hailwood, Giacomo Agostini, Kenny Roberts Senior, Mick Doohan and Valentino Rossi are studies, but so are lesser-known heroes who rode the storm to brief glory.
