Teen Fantasy: The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott

About the Book: Have you ever wondered why almost every different belief system and mythology have similiar circumstances, similiar monsters, and similiar heroes? Maybe it is because all of the legendary stories of mankind are based on, at least in part, all of the same legends. And what if those legendary heroes, monsters, and legends still lived in secret in the world today? Josh and Sophie, twins from the modern day city of San Francisco are about to find out.

The King's Ruling: A nonstop adventure from page one, the Alchemyst is the first of six books in the The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series. As the story is about a fantasy adventure taking place in present day there are moments that the reader must suspend his or her disbelief, but as a whole Michael Scott creates a great fantasy adventure that is accessible to everyone yet still grounded in historical mythology.

Spoilers:--->Even though Josh is the annoying twin I think he may turn out to be the hero of the story. I love the historical characters in this story but the gods seem to be pretty easy to kill off. <---
