Winter Reading 2016 Mark of Blood and Alchemy


I read an advance copy of Curio and was sent the prequel by the publisher. This story goes back to the very beginning and the events that began the struggle between the Chemists and the Defenders. It also shows the cause of the problems shown in Monument City during the first book and why everyone there is dependent on potions from the Chemists to get any nutrition from their food. There is plenty of intrigue, and enough action to keep the story moving along, and we meet some of the characters we already know, like Alaric and Olan,  but they are much younger than during the events in Curio and there are still unanswered questions and a gap between the end of this book and the beginning of the next.
