    Great story

    Zoe Faust is an alchemist. She has been around for several hundred years. She lives in Portland with best friend Dorian, a Gargoyle chef. Between gardening and working on her house, she spends time with her boyfriend, Max.  She is walking by an art gallery when she sees a painting of her ex mentor, Nicolas Flamel. She realizes that Nicolas Flamel has been imprisoned. Before she can talk to the artist, he has been killed and the painting stolen. Zoe also is seen wearing a necklace that the artist was wearing when he was killed. Is she now a suspect? Art forgery. hidden messages and a bad guy going down. I loved Zoe but Dorian is my favorite. Some recipes included. I received this book from Net Galley and Midnight Ink for a honest review. The opinions are my own.

    Love Dorian!

    I have a certain fondness for this series I can’t really explain. I know that seems a weird thing to say, but to me it makes perfect sense. Anyway, this latest in the series finds Zoe trying to save her mentor who she thinks is hiding somewhere or has been kidnapped. In the middle of that, there has been a murder, and she is drawn into because the painting that has clues that might help her find mentor Nicholas is owned by the family of the victim. I do love all the characters in this book, especially Dorian. Who doesn’t love the fun gargoyle?! This one was, as always, well-written and interesting. I found a couple of the elements of the crime to be a little too coincidental and convoluted, but I could look past that. I’m looking forward to what’s going to happen next. I recommend this book and series! I was provided the e-book which I voluntarily reviewed.

    Accidental alchemist’s illusion

    This has to be at least the fourth series I have read that has featured the Flamels. Popular from the 1500s on their names have been linked throughout history and now with our alchemist Zoe Faust. The story is about what happened to the pair from past to future and how they relate to Zoe and her friends in Portland. Hopefully Zoe and Max can eventually get onto the same page.

    A great new read!

    urban-fantasy, suspense, alchemy, mystery, law-enforcement The story was great even though I didn't binge reread the earlier books! I think that it's a strength of the author that the reader is not disadvantaged by either not having reread prior books or even not ever having read them. But about this one, the publisher's blurb gives some idea of what to expect (other than the unexpected), but it's getting into the whole spirit of the author's imagination that makes it such a wonderful read. I've seen it mentioned that the books are for younger readers, but that is an inexact judgment. True, there is no graphic violence, erotica, or gratuitous use of the f bomb, but I think that they're great and I am retired from being a jail RN! I requested and received a free ebook copy from Midnight Ink via NetGalley. Thank you!
