“This series is well-constructed and original. Cynthea Masson does an excellent job of balancing the good and evil of her flawed characters.” ― CM Magazine

PRAISE FOR THE ALCHEMISTS' COUNCIL

"Masson has a lyrical writing style that echoes some of the English romantics' focus on beauty and nature. She excels at propelling the story forward with complex characters." - Publishers Weekly on The Alchemists' Council

"The Alchemists' Council excels with a beautifully crafted and alluring world." - Broken Pencil

"Masson's prose is dense with details and striking imagery, and her characters are compelling." - Jana Nyman, Fantasy Literature Blog

From the Back Cover

Move back through time into the alluring worlds of the Alchemists' Council

The anticipated second book in Cynthea Masson's series takes readers to Flaw Dimension, centuries before the events of book one. Rebel scribe Genevre, exploring secreted libraries with Dragonsblood pulsing through her young veins, accidentally discovers a 5th-Council manuscript with a long-forgotten alchemical formula whose implications could permanently transform both the Alchemists' Council and the Rebel Branch.

A revolution looms as High Azoth Dracaen strengthens the power of the Rebel Branch, Cedar and Saule take treacherous steps against fellow alchemists, and the unprecedented mutual conjunction of Ilex and Melia changes the fate of all dimensions. With insurgents gathering, Ilex and Melia's attempt to open a forbidden breach through time could bring salvation -- or total destruction -- to the elemental balance of the world.

The battle over free will for all of humanity continues in The Flaw in the Stone, the remarkable second instalment of this epic fantasy trilogy.
