MONDAY, June 6th at 7pm: More from THE ALCHEMYST
Sophie and Josh Newman are 15-year-old twins who are working at their summer jobs in The Coffee Cup in
Francisco when a mysterious man, John Dee, comes into
the book store right next to them for a book, the Codex – or Book of Abraham
the Mage. Josh witness both Nick and Perry using magic. They discover that Nick
is not an ordinary bookseller, but is the medieval and the legendary alchemyst,
Nicholas Flamel, being kept alive by making the elixir of life (a secret from
the Codex) for him and his wife, Perry (Perenelle).
Dee also uses magic and takes the Codex by force while Josh is holding it – resulting in two pages being left behind "The Final Summoning" pages that Dee needs to raise the Dark Elders, the beings whom
Dee serves, and who has kept him immortal for several
hundred years. Both Flamels need the Codex to make the elixir of life, or they
will age rapidly and die within a month. Also, if they do not retrieve the
Codex, Dee will summon the Dark Elders to
destroy the world and return to an age in which humans are but slaves and food.
