The Scarlet Alchemist by Kylie Lee Baker - Book Review

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was exactly what I expected it to be! I loved the main characters from the get go, their entertaining personalities drew me in straight away. I also adored the alternate Tang dynasty China setting and the concept of alchemy and the rich using it to live longer was a great concept. The challenges she faced were well delivered and kept as fast pace and intriguing storyline. I actually ended up reading this in one day, it kept me that engaged. I don’t want to say much about plot but every time I expected one thing to happen the author took it in a different direction. I’m excited to see where she takes the story in the sequel, the ending was wonderful and high stakes but she set up the next book well!

A great read with one of my favourite settings!

A bit about me… I love all things morally grey and magical! 

My favourite series is Red Rising and I’m sucker for found family. 

I drink way too much tea and live out my fantasy dreams by visiting medieval festivals and doing archery! 

If I’m not reading you’ll find me writing my book or dreaming of far away places.
