If you haven't read the Nightblade series yet, I suggest that you do so. Although The Alchemist's Touch will still be good even if you don't. But I love how the two stories are cross-referencing and I think most people would agree.
Garrett Robinson does a fantastic job of getting you completely inside the minds of the characters, in both series, and this is one of my favorite things about reading. It's great to read a good storyline, but to be completely immersed in the heart and soul of the characters while reading a great storyline is absolutely fabulous!
Just a heads-up, because I didn't catch on right away, the epilogue to these books comes after the acknowledgements and about the author portion of the book, so keep turning those pages or you may regret it!
And just so you know, the second book in this series, The Mindmage's Wrath, is even better than this one. I didn't think that could be possible, but I became completely addicted and could hardly leave my house until I finished it. There are even more plot twists, action, and revealed secrets than the previous stories. Now I'm just sitting here anxiously awaiting for the next one to be released next month and can't wait to find out how the characters from this series get tangled up with the characters from the Nightblade series.
That said, the book is enjoyable and very inclusive. The story is fun and the world is well thought-through. The writing itself stumbles a little for me and the overuse of the word "mayhaps" dragged me out of the book but I enjoyed the story and world enough that I've read every book the author has written.
This won't go on my favorite's shelf but it definitely wasn't a waste of time reading it.
Ebon is an interesting character who I found refreshing in the fantasy genre. It's quite clear, by this point, that Mr. Robinson is quite a master of the tropes of the genre. If you like fantasy, this is a book, and a series, you would be foolish to miss out on.
If you're a fan of Harry Potter over the age of 16 (because, real talk, The Alchemist's Touch isn't graphic but it does contain reference to sexual experience and some violence) you'll like The Alchemist's Touch.
Literally every other paragraph the author uses the word mayhap in a sentence. I'm sorry but this is a huge pet peeve of mine, when an author latches onto a word and uses it incessantly. Mayhap his editor should have brought this to his attention instead of letting him use it 20 times per chapter...........
