More Great Young Adult Books

I'm hooked and I can't wait until the next installment of "The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel".
The series is based on both history and fantasy. You will find it in the YA section. Yes, another YA fantasy that adults will also enjoy. Michael Scott weaves figures and history into a planned six-volume fantasy. Twins Sophie and Josh find themselves in London in the third book and their powers are growing. Their goal is to get to Stonehenge where a portal can take them back to San Francisco. But Dark Elders have other plans.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, their guardian Flamel's gifted wife Pernelle survives clouds of poinsous insects and attacks from the octopus-legged Old Man of the Sea to escape from Alcatraz Island. Master yarnspinner that he is, Scott expertly cranks up the suspense while keeping his now-large cast in quick motion. He also continues to blur the line between the two sides, injecting the notes of ambiguity that will leave readers wondering. Ending in a welter of revelations, reunions and unresolved plotlines, this page-turner promises plenty of action to come.
