I love historical-twist thrillers like this, especially with the search for a mythical elixir. Looking forward to it!

Demetrius Jackson

Wonderful premise with a compelling storyline.

Elizabeth Crowens

Really exciting premise.

T.M. Parris

This has all the ingredients of a brilliant read - interesting historical context, exotic international settings, fantastic characters and lots of tension. I loved the preview and have already downloaded the whole novel. Can't wait to get stuck in!

A. J. Henry

The Imperial Alchemist has all the elements fo a great adventure. The storyline has Raider's of the Lost Ark appeal and expect it to be fast-paced action.

James King

After a choppy start, the dinner engagement sets the scene well for what may be to come. A well-crafted, engaging suspense story in prospect.<br /> Present tense narration is not my scene, and I found it hard going in the opening. But once I got into it, I was comfortable. The style and description were excellent, and I could visualise the story on the big screen. Good with few grammatical errors, the story flows even for nitpickers.

Rebecca Reddell

This sounds like a book I would enjoy reading. I'm adding it to me to-read list!šŸ˜Š

Eugene Lloyd MacRae

A great read and outstanding storytelling. A thriller full of Chinese history, legend and mysticism blended together to keep you in the story.

Jen Finelli

I really love the title, and the fact that this story focuses on East Asian legends, by an East Asian author, with an East Asian main character. We need more of this kind of representation in fiction. I'm downloading.
