In Scott's series (which isn't based on Potter at all, I just think Potter fans will like it), Scott creates a story based on Nicholas Flamel's book with the secret of the elixir being stolen. There is a prophecy in the book that says this will happen and that the power of twins must be awakened. They can save the world from the Dark Elders--and of course they can also destroy the world if they work with the wrong side.
Great series and I'm looking forward to the other books.
Dr. Dee hasn't wasted any time; he immediately called for reinforcements - Machiavelli is already in Paris and waiting for them. With Sophie's newly awakened powers, they are able to escape. Nicholas leads them to the home of his old student. There, they regroup, rest, and recharge.
Once Dr. Dee arrives in Paris things begin to happen. He wants to capture the twins plus the last two pages of the codex, and he's willing to do anything to catch them.
The twins fight back, along with Nicholas, Scatty, Francis, and Joan of Arc. Together they make a stand, but is it enough to stop the powerful Magician?
Michael Scott blends mystery, fantasy, and history perfectly together into an adrenaline-filled, addicting novel.

The author has introduced two villains. As the more action unfolds with these two, I am not sure that one of these will turn away from the dark side at the last minute.... time will tell.
Already into book three....
