A boy with seven days to live. An ancient curse. And one girl with the power to stop it. Hunted by Dark Alchemy and forced to leave their homes to protect their families, Taylor Montclair and Sacha Winters have arrived at Oxford's St Wilfred's College. Surrounded by Alchemists sworn to protect them, they are safe for now. But time is short. In seven days Sacha will turn 18, and the ancient curse that once made him invincible will kill him. And unleash a wave of destruction on the earth. Sacha and Taylor need answers - fast. When the safety of the college is breached, the alchemists are faced with a terrifying possibility. Could the source of the darkness be one of their own? Sacha and Taylor's only chance is to go to where the curse was first cast - the medieval French city of Carcassonne. There they will face the darkest alchemy the world has ever seen, armed with only the power of their bloodlines. In Carcasonne, this will end. What everyone is saying about the Alchemist Chronicles: 'Brilliant premise, stunning world-building, killer characters and dialogue. You need to get excited about this book.

Both of their voices were distinctive, and I could imagine that I was actually living their lives with how descriptive their words were. I loved them both equally, and was invested in their lives as much as they were... Sacha and Taylor are my newest OTP... everyone should just drop everything, and get this book ASAP - you will not be disappointed!'
