The Alchemist’s Stone (The Village Alchemist Book #2)
Picking up only a few months after the end of book one, The Alchemist’s Stone continues Malcolm’s quest to become a master alchemist by creating a philosopher’s stone, the great work every alchemist must achieve. He also needs to deal with new responsibilities and relationships in his life, including his apprentice, Danny, a young man with the power to transform metals with a touch.
After more than half a century, alchemist Malcolm Ward had yet to complete his magnum opus, the philosopher’s stone. Then a young man appeared with the ability to transmute elements with a simple touch.
For more than a year, Malcolm has taken Danny as his apprentice, hoping to guide the young man to control his power and unlock the secret he is missing for his philosopher’s stone.
But others are looking for Danny, too. Agents from the US Treasury department are trying to find the young man who can turn lead into gold. Meanwhile, a dark spirit entity that possesses those gifted with special abilities has set its sights on Danny, too.
To stay ahead of the government and to destroy the dark entity, Malcolm might need to learn a trick or two from his apprentice. Is it alchemy…or something else? In Salt City, there are no easy answers.
The Alchemist’s Stone is the second book in The Village Alchemist series. It is scheduled for a 2018 release. It will be available in ebook and print formats.
