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.
