AN ALCHEMICAL OFFER - a guest post by Ailsa Abraham
Two great books, reduced for one week only from 19.02.2016
What would you give for a world free of war, dependence on fossil fuels, pollution and terrorism? That is the premise for the Alchemy series.
An accidental discovery solving the problem of fossil fuel brings this Utopian vision closer – but at what cost? Could there be unforeseen consequences, and how dire would they be? Who could fight demons if all established religion had been abolished?
Put aside demons and add two people more doomed than Romeo and Juliet who are forced to fight alongside each other. Mix in some very energetic Goths and an undercover Christian Granny for an explosive result as the stories move at breakneck speed into the near-future, blending magical realism with pizza, ritual with slang, deepest hatred with impossible love, shape-shifting with public transport.
