Publisher: Wednesday Books
Synopsis: Thea Hope longs to be an alchemist out of the shadow of her famous mother. The two of them are close to creating the legendary Philosopher’s Stone—whose properties include immortality and can turn any metal into gold—but just when the promise of the Stone’s riches is in their grasp, Thea’s mother destroys the Stone in a sudden fit of violent madness.
While combing through her mother’s notes, Thea learns that there’s a curse on the Stone that causes anyone who tries to make it to lose their sanity. With the threat of the French Revolution looming, Thea is sent to Oxford for her safety, to live with the father who doesn’t know she exists.
But in Oxford, there are alchemists after the Stone who don’t believe Thea’s warning about the curse—instead, they’ll stop at nothing to steal Thea’s knowledge of how to create the Stone. But Thea can only run for so long, and soon she will have to choose: create the Stone and sacrifice her sanity, or let the people she loves die.

Never read or heard of this book.
Right now, reading The Golden Compass. Thinking maybe read the rest of the series.
My TBR list consists of Mayor of Casterbridge, Hard Times, Kidnapped, Gulliver’s Travels, Little Women, Secret Garden, A Little Princess, and rereads of Harry Potter and Narnia.
You have a lot of good classics on your TBR. I hope you enjoy! 🙂
Still need a new fantasy to read- if I love The Golden Compass, probably will buy the rest of the series.
Actually, when I was at bookstore the other day, I came across the Nevermoor series. Think I will eventually read it. That day only bought Mayor of Casterbridge and Little Women
I love Little Women, and I’ve heard a lot of wonderful things about the Nevermoor series!!
I was told if you love HP, you will love that series- even the back of the first book said that
I read this one a few weeks back and I did enjoy it for the most part! I enjoy historical fiction and don’t mind the slower pace that sometimes comes with it. It was definitely different to what I’ve been reading so far this year 🙂 Hope you enjoy it!
The premise sounds so interesting, and I do enjoy historical fiction. We’ll see… 🙂
My mind is blown at the amazing ideas and plot lines authors come up with. Everything about this sounds incredible. I even love the word “alchemy.”
I agree! So intriguing!
I actually have an ARC for this one and am excited to get to it! Great choice ☺️
I read this one and it wasn’t for me but I know others have liked it!
