Out Now – The Alchemist’s Apprentice (The Zero Enigma V)

14 Dec

A Stand-Alone Novel set in The Zero Enigma Universe …

Five months after the House War, the city of Shallot is on edge. The Great Houses plot and plan against one another, while the magicians rebuild and the common folk fear another outburst of fighting. And one young nobleman has a plan.

Rebecca is a half-caste shopgirl in an apothecary, dreaming of an apprenticeship that will allow her to rise out of poverty and finally make a name for herself in a city that has no use for her kind. But when her master undertakes a commission for an enigmatic young nobleman, she finds herself drawn into a maelstrom of criminals, ambitious nobles and a plan that may shake the foundations of the Great Houses themselves …

    Finally managed to finish it – it was a fantastic book to rival your SiM series. I hope Rebecca will be seeing more books of her own eventually and that this wonderful universe you’ve created will be seeing many more entries!

        I didn’t use those exact words, but I did say it was a must-read and gave it 5 stars 🙂 The second thing I did after finishing! (The first being the post I made here!)

    Interesting that Rachel Griffin (from Lamplighter’s books I assume) makes an appearance.

      Yep, by permission. (Jagi Lamplighter wrote a crossover set in the Zero verse.)
