Twins Josh & Sophie Newman’s lives are turned upside down by the revelation that they are supposed to be the saviors of mankind. They are told they are the twins of Gold and Silver by Josh’s employer, a bookseller who turns out to be an alchemyst named Nicholas Flamel – and he’s over 500 years old. This is the first book in the Nicholas Flamel series and I decided to reread it. It is really interesting the way the author weaves the past with the present using historical figures and mythological figures and lore to create this story.
