Twins, Sophie and Josh Newman, Nicholas Flamel and the warrior Scatty barely escape California alive and flee to Paris. There they are pursued by Niccolo Machiavelli, another immortal, who wishes to capture them and return the Dark Elders to power. While seeking refuge with one of Flamel's old apprentices, Josh and Sophie meet another legend as Sophie tries to learn to control her new powers. But time is running out, quite literally, for Nicholas and his wife as each day they spend without the book of Abraham the Mage, they are rapidly aging.
I'm quite surprised at how much I am enjoying these books. They are quick reads but lots of fun while reading them. I have no problems believing the plot (even though ancient gods and goddesses walking the earth stretches the imagination). Again, I liken these books to the Percy Jackson series.
