Summary

‘Run!' Will said to Eloise. She hesitated and he pushed behind her, grabbing the bird out of the air. But the sound of beating wings didn't stop. Eloise let out a cry and when he turned she'd been scratched on the head and was hitting another crow away. The vampire William of Mercia continues to search for answers about his long, un-dead life, together with Eloise, the girl with whom his fate is entwined. But the darkness doesn't yield its secrets easily.
As they edge closer to the truth, it becomes clear that something evil knows their every move, and this time it's targeting the person Will needs most of all. Lost in a frozen landscape, powerful adversaries are locked in a battle that not everyone can survive, as destiny collides with a sorcerer's dark arts....

The difficult middle book of a trilogy...

.. not so difficult after all. I like that we get to here about events from the perspective of different characters.

Carl Prekopp excellent as ever. So good to hear regional accents done properly.

Honestly, it's a great trilogy. Have a listen!

Fantastic Sequel

Would you consider the audio edition of Alchemy: Mercian Trilogy, Book 2 to be better than the print version?

Yes

What did you like best about this story?

The beautiful style, the sympathetic hero and the realistic and fantasy blend.

What about Carl Prekopp’s performance did you like?

He somehow managed to make his performance moving but not over the top. It was just right.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Gothic Vampire Mystery

Any additional comments?

This book continues the story of Will as he attempts to learn the truth about his destiny, helped by the human Elouise and hindered by Windom, a sorcerer whose one aim in life is Will's destruction. Amazing!
