The first in a phenomenal new fantasy trilogy, where the power of words can change the fate of all dimensions

As a new Initiate with the Alchemists’ Council, Jaden is trained to maintain the elemental balance of the world, while fending off interference by the malevolent Rebel Branch. Bees are disappearing from the pages of the ancient manuscripts in Council dimension and from the outside world, threatening its very existence. Jaden navigates alchemy’s complexities, but the more she learns, the more she begins to question Council practices. Erasure ― a procedure designed not only to remove individuals from Council dimension but also from the memories of other alchemists ― troubles Jaden, and she uses her ingenuity to remember one of the erased people. In doing so, she realizes the Rebel Branch might not be the enemy she was taught to fight against.

Jaden is caught between her responsibility to the Council and her growing allegiance to the rebels, as the Council finds itself at the brink of war. She is faced with an ethical dilemma involving the free will of all humanity and must decide whether or not she can save the worlds.

About the Author:

Cynthea Masson is a professor in the English department at Vancouver Island University. After completing a Ph.D. in English with a focus on medieval mysticism, she undertook a postdoctoral fellowship involving work with medieval alchemical manuscripts at the British Library. In addition to articles on mysticism and alchemy, many of her award-winning academic publications over the past decade have been in the area of television studies. She is the co-editor of the academic book Reading Joss Whedon (Syracuse University Press, 2014); her fiction includes The Elijah Tree (Rebel Satori, 2009). She lives in British Columbia.

Review:

“Masson has a lyrical writing style that echoes some of the English romantics’ focus on beauty and nature. She excels at propelling the story forward with complex characters.” ― Publishers Weekly

“The Alchemists’ Council excels with a beautifully crafted and alluring world.” ― Broken Pencil

“An intelligently written, character-driven fantasy novel . . . The Alchemists’ Council by Cynthea Masson definitely merits a gold seal of approval.” ― BryceRaffle.com

“Masson’s prose is dense with details and striking imagery, and her characters are compelling.” ― Jana Nyman, Fantasy Literature Blog

“I knew that when I reached the end of the book I would be sad . . . sad that I would have to wait for the next installment! . . . Thank you Cynthea Masson for blowing my mind!” ― Lost in the Rain Blog

”Cynthea Masson has crafted a sophisticated fantasy realm that intersects our own. Her multi-dimensional characters and skillfully woven plot will keep readers guessing about allegiance and motivation, even among the story’s protagonists.” ― Scene Magazine

“Masson uses her academic expertise in medieval manuscripts to create a convincing fantastical world in which the disappearance of bees from alchemical texts threatens ecological sustainability.” ― The Bull Calf
