The Alchemyst by Michael Scott

In this book we are introduced to Nicholas and Pernelle Flamel (of the famed Sorcerer's Stone.....from Harry Potter). They are living as the Flemings, owning a book store and coffee shop in San Fransisco. Their teenage employees (and twins) Josh and Sophie get caught up in Nick's quest to save Pernelle from Dr. Dee and find the codex which Dee has stolen. Nick thinks that the twins are the twins from the Codex, with pure silver and gold auras.

It's an interesting read. I love the references to the Elders (creatures and characters from myth). The story drags a bit here and there but overall a decent read. I would definitely continue reading the series.
