Secrets of the Immortals
History as you know it is a lie.
The truth: Nicholas Flamel was born in Paris on September 28, 1330. Nearly 700 years later, he is acknowledged as the greatest Alchemyst of his day. It is said that he discovered the secret of eternal life.
The records show that he died in 1418.
But his tomb is empty.
The legend: Nicholas Flamel lives. But only because he has been making the elixir of life for centuries. The secret of eternal life is hidden within the book he protects- the Book of Abraham the Mage. It’s the most powerful book that has ever existed. In the wrong hands, it will destroy the world.
Sometimes legends are true.
The world is filled with people and creatures that span the centuries of long past. Most working for what they call the Elders. Gods from every myth ever told. Powerful beings that can create and destroy entire cities with their powers.
Most individuals are blissfully ignorant of these truths. But a select few have been awakened to their full potential. The awakened can draw upon their life force to perform incredible feats, some even rivaling the Elders themselves.
