Alchemist Gift is Time Travel to the Age of Alchemy with Renaissance history action, 3D characters you love and hate, beautiful descriptions that put you into scenes of Italy & Bavaria and the lives of the characters, and uplifting assurance of the goodness of man, with a satisfying ending.
I did a beta read of the book. Alchemist Gift was difficult to put down. It satisfies on so many levels. The author has done his homework on the Renaissance period of the late 1400s, early 1500s. He captures the politics, culture and religion of the times through six love stories. The human condition is apparent in the characters with love, desire, lust, kindness, brutality, spirituality, and courage. There are many strong women in the story who are strong for their character and confidence. From philosophy to science and science fiction the book introduces you to the ancient Bagdad battery that powers a Renaissance version of a laser beam up to the magical Alchemist Cabinet. The characters experience time in a non-linear fashion reminiscent of Gabriel Garcia Marquez in “One Hundred Years of Solitude”. The descriptions made me feel like I was there experiencing the events with all my senses. There is action, adventure, magic, romance, history, culture and more. This book is a full course meal.
“A style reminiscent of Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s magical realism.” – Red City Review.
