This brilliant book, written by great Irish writer Scott, tells the story of two twins who, in the course of two days, discover magic exists. Josh and Sophie are whipped away from their normal life and thrown into a dangerous world where their pure silver and gold auras bind them to an ancient prophecy. When they befriend Nicholas and Perenelle Flamel- husband and wife who supposedly died hundreds of years ago. Nicholas has found the secret to immortality, and he and his wife live in California under the names Nick and Perry. When Sophie’s powers are awakened, a rift begins to divide her and Josh- he hates feeling apart from her: they have always been equal. They have the power to save or destroy the world, but must first come to terms with their magic abilities.
The story continues with the next book: The Magician
