“How will I take my next breath, if something happens to her?”

The successful mixture of suspense, paranormal and romance that we experienced in “The Seer’s Daughter” now continues in “The Alchemist’s Son”. I enjoyed this book as much as the first one, perhaps even more.

The romance between Sage and Ethan was still strong and I couldn’t get enough of their intimate moments. Sage stubborn as always tried to handle everything by herself, of course Ethan would never leave her unprotected

A stunning conclusion to an incredible series!

This is Part 2 of a 2-part series called Beyond The Grave. I read the first part, The Seer's Daughter, a couple of weeks ago and shrieked about that here because I LOVED it. I do think that you need to read The Seer's Daughter first; while this book contains some call-backs and summary, there's a lot that you would miss about the plot if you hadn't read the first book.

That said, go the hell out and buy both of these books now because they are freakin

After reading ‘The Seer’s Daughter’ I could not wait for the next instalment, which definitely did not let me down. ‘The Alchemists Son’ is flawlessly written and brilliantly wraps up the story from book one, jam-packed with so much drama and suspense that it could be read alone (although I'd seriously recommend you start with the first!).

In this book the strange goings on in Cryton are getting increasingly worse. With murder, possession, and unexplained happenings all over town, Sage needs to g
Wow I am totally loving this series, it's been a nice change from the books I've been reading, I forgot how much I enjoy fantasy and supernatural themes. In this follow on from The Seer's Daughter, Sage is coming to terms with her gifts and learning more about them in order to fight the evil, while Ethan still has to learn how he and his ancestors fit into the big picture and how he is needed to fight the evil and protect Sage. Being such a logical person, will he be able to do this in time to s ...more

The excitement continues in the second installment of the Beyond the Grace Series, which picks up right where the previous books left off. I wouldn’t recommend reading this book unless you have already read the previous book, but in my case there were plenty of reminders to refresh my memory of the first book even after a few more months.
Things I loved about this book: the creepy, chill-inducing moments with demons and dark spirits and just general creepiness. Great cast of characters that are

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of The Alchemist's Son after expressing how much of a fan I was of Book 1 - The Seer's Daughter. The Alchemist's son took me back to the strange events happening in Cryton and threw me head long into the lives of Sage and Ethan as they seek out the satanic serial killer lurking in the shadows. Ethan's special ops team are a prominent feature and rightfully so - these boys are the whole package - tough, sexy and fiercely loyal. I could read a book based solely ...more

The second book in the series. I believed that the book would be far more entertaining than the first. The characters remain the same and we are introduced to Ethan's band of brother's who pledge to help Ethan to end his mission to save his love and a town.

The evil is growing in the small town and the showdown between good and evil will happen on midnight by the blood moon. Sage is missing several things that she will need in her circle to banish evil and the demon is fighting her at every pass.

Wow what even more amazing than book 1! I had to read book two as soon as I finished book 1. It is extremely well-written and just asdelightful to read as the first. I love paranormal romance with a passion and this one was wonderful.

This was the perfect follow up to The Seer's Daughter! It was constant action, and I never knew what was going to happen next. It was funny, frightening, exciting, heartbreaking, and I loved it from cover to cover! There were twists and turns I didn't see coming and thrills around every corner. I loved it!

Sage Matthews needs to find out the name of the evil entity that is haunting her hometown and seems to have a hold on her family through many generations. It's the only way to even begin to fig

This is the second book in the Beyond the Grave Series. If you haven't read book 1, The Seer's Daughter, then you should!! In saying that, the author has done an amazing job of bringing parts of book one into book two.
The Alchemist's Son does not disappoint. This book picks up where we left off in book one. Sage and Ethan are joined by his special-ops team mates. As they race to try to beat the deadline, mentioned in the prophecy, all are tested and their beliefs push to the limits. Friends are

Ah this one is a must I say. I read the last one first, then the first one, and now this one.

It will also be get it together quick and do or die time for most. Hair raising and causing it to curl mixed with heat in the moments too of passion.

This episode will have you biting your nails and sitting on the edge of your seats as the suspense and danger continues to increase. It's impossible to determine what will happen next in this unpredictable storyline. Terrible situations arise and heinous acts are constantly happening. This book presents the most intense and chilling moments in the entire story. It is difficult to determine If Sage and Ethan will have a future at the conclusion of this tale. I would recommend reading this story. ...more

The fight

We all have our own skirmishes between good and evil...eating that cookie that isn't allowed in our diet, telling a white lie to do as to not hurt someone's feelings, etc. These are extremely minor occurrences! The fight between good and evil, love and hate, truth and lies in a much grandeur scale began with "The Star's Daughter" and completed with " The Alchemist's Son". Truly a fantastic story of true, pure love. I would definitely recommend.

Another Fantastic book!

Wow! Athena Daniels has done it again! I’m in love with this series and again I couldn’t put this book down.

I don’t want to spoil it for you but you will want to read this. It ties in with the rest of the series but can be read as a stand-alone too.

This book kept my attention... as much as I felt the need to know what would happen next...I was scared of what would happen next. Love the love story within scary story as it unfolded.
Hated for it to end, yet could not wait to find out the ending.

**Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book.**

The conclusion of this paranormal series goes out with a bang!

Sage has had the shock of her life when she discovered she was fated to be the one to put a stop to a demonizing... well... demon. And not just any, but a powerful monster who is poised to unleash darkness and chaos on the world. Not a job that I would want, either.

Her new beau, Ethan, is in a similar boat. He may have finally come to terms with the fact that something super

Wow! What a fantastic sequel. Sage and Ethan use everything in their power to defeat the Dark Master, finally ridding the world of evil and hate. With the help of her Nan's band of witches, and her newfound friends, she must enter the circle on the evening of the blood moon and perform a sacred ritual to banish him. But there is more that has to be done to make sure that he is gone forever and the greatest sacrifice she could possibly imagine has to happen for this to be achieved.

We get to see the final days leading up to the ritual that must take place to, basically, save the world!
No pressure right!

Sage and Ethan are more determined than ever to complete this task due to a recent discovery.

Time is not on their side to gather all the elements needed to banish the demon. There has to be seven people for the circle, the words needed have to be practiced, the name of the demon needs to be known and then there is finding the Alchemist’s son.

The Alchemist's Son is the concluding part of the Beyond The Grave series, and a more fitting, climatic, and chilling ending to this story I can't possibly imagine.

Sage and Ethan are still fighting against the demon possession that is in town, whilst Ethan is also trying to ensure that the government doesn't step in to 'help' like they did last time. The scenes between these two are off the charts heatwise, but it isn't just about sex with them. It may sound corny (but it isn't) but there is a

In The Alchemist's Son by Athena Daniels, Sage Matthews and Ethan Blade continue the supernatural adventures begun in The Seer’s Daughter in which a small Australian town has come under a demonic influence. It's one that crops up every hundred years, and unless the demon is banished, chaos will reign.
After the death of her grandmother, white witch Sage is an integral part of the prophecy that has the potential to finally get rid of the demon once and for all. But she hardly knows anything about

Athena Daniels has done it again. She has created a spell-binding tightly woven story packed with all the things that keep us reading. THE ALCHEMIST'S SON is a sequel to her first book of the BEYOND THE GRAVE series, THE SEER'S DAUGHTER. I would suggest that you read that first before you rush into this book (and you will want to do just that). If you're looking for a book that will keep you awake at night while you sit on the edge of your seat, you've found the perfect book. If you're looking f ...more

If you haven't read The Seers Daughter (book one) then please read it before this book so you will get the first part then read this for the second part. I must tell you that you will need tissues for various reasons lol it's packed full with a love so divine and lust so delicious and like two sides of a coin there's hatred so dark and danger so close. You will not be able to put this book down you will be so engrossed into the story. ...more
