Authors: Sheena Boekweg, Melanie Crouse and Sabrina West
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
We didn’t know how much we had to lose until we were infected with magic. Sam was in love, Juliette was the main caretaker for her siblings, and Ana and her dad planned the best parties in New York. But we lost it all when we were shipped to Chebeague, an exclusive school for newly infected mages.
Everyone knows about the mages, those who survive the infection and end up with magical abilities. We’ve seen the power of magic, the high-paying jobs, and the world fame. But we never saw the cost. We didn’t know we’d be forced to give up everything: sanity, family, even the right to talk on the phone.
We didn’t know mage was just another word for prisoner.
I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.
This world of magic is different than any other I’ve read about before and I found it interesting. Someone is infected with magic, gets crazy for a while, and then ends up with powers. Once someone is infected, they aren’t allowed to lead a “normal” life.
I like how Alchemy is in journal form and the reader can follow what each character is thinking by reading those journals. The main characters are unique, they each bring a different point of view, and I liked all three of them.
This story is well written and full of magic, suspense and humor. It is a good book not only for young adults but adults as well. I’m looking forward to reading the next book!
About the Authors:
Sabrina West, Sheena Boekweg and Melanie Crouse never dreamed they would actually create a book worth publishing when they started writing together. Alchemy was merely supposed to be an exercise in flexibility. And it has been that, but it is so much more. Friendships that span the American continent have been forged, and unforgettable characters have been created.
Writing this first book in the Prophecy Breakers was a fun-filled adventure, and we hope that reading it is just as fun for you.
