Aspen Pacific, a seventeen-year-old not-so-average girl, and her younger sister Ragan are determined to find the legendary Seraph, an immortal, medieval alchemist that resides in the furthest reaches of the mystical world of Ragnfrid-Taron. He is rumored to be one of the most ancient, all-powerful alchemists, and he is the sisters’ only hope for learning the craft.
Shrouded in naiveté and ignorance, Aspen must learn the whirlwind of truths and discover the many hidden secrets that exist in this supernatural place. No one is entirely who she thinks, and mistakes and choices from the past rarely remain unknown forever. Many are blinded by their greed for gold and their desire for immortality, but there are still good souls in Ragnfrid-Taron.
As clashing worlds collide, dangerous enemies, unexpected alliances, and shimmering portals are revealed. Dark beings known as tempests threaten the very existence of alchemists, while guardian angels known as messengers use their psychic foresight to deliver prophecies and warnings.
Filled with romance, deceit, fantasy, near-death encounters, and medieval chemistry, this eye-opening novel stretches the limits of your imagination. The quest for the Philosopher’s Stone, a mysterious, ethereal creation that allows for the “perfecting” of metals into gold, is a wild one.
I have so enjoyed this book and I'm not much of a reader!! BUT, I am excited to read this entire series! Looks like this is the first of 6 in a series that the Author is in the middle of writing! I have one more chapter left and the second one "Schism" has been ordered! I'm excited to take the journey as they each become available
Thank you Laura Ander for helping me get interested in reading and to take time to dive into a new and different world! :)
So at first I thought this was just going to be another ordinary run of the mill fantasy fiction book from some new author I have never heard of. When I finished this book, my whole opinion of it completely changed. The detail and the character development in this book are just amazing! I am sucker for a good story and this book left me demanding a sequel. Your money would be well spent on this new up and coming author and this exciting tale of alchemy. Please release a sequel soon!!!!!
P.S. The protagonist in this story is amazing. I would marry her.
I loved the book. I thought it was very entertaining and a great read. I highly recommend.
Fantastically fun fantasy with a modern twist. If you enjoy fantasy and science fiction this book will be a quick read and is perfect for a long flight. I look forward to Laura Ander's next book and see where this series leads. Should be a must have for any comic con type.
