Nicholas Flamel, legendary alchemist of the Middle Ages, recently noted in THE DA VINCI CODE and HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER'S STONE, plays a central role in this tale of myth and fantasy. Flamel enlists teenage twins Sophie and Josh to help him fight the evil Dr. John Dee, who not only kidnaps Nicholas's wife, but also steals an ancient Codex from a San Francisco bookshop. Narrator Denis O'Hare keeps his pace in sync with the fast-paced plot. He handles various accents with ease, giving character and personality to the story's mythological creatures. This title may prove to be especially popular as it is intended to be the first in a series and may be headed to the silver screen.
