really liked it

The Alchemists’ Council is a complicated and colourful read.

The worlds Masson paints are magnificently constructed and easy to follow. The character roster is deep, but everyone has a quirk that keeps them distinct from the rest. Jaden, the protagonist, learns more and more about the Council that challenges her sense of morality.

As plots intertwine and more rules from Council dimension are discovered, more twists and turns drive Jaden’s quest for answers. Just when you develop a set of expectations the plot shifts again. Plot development and pacing are crucial elements of a sci-fi/fantasy novel and Masson delivers. An added bonus I found to be totally refreshing is that this piece of young adult fiction doesn't need a romance plot to drive it forward.

I definitely recommend The Alchemists’ Council, especially to trade fiction, sci-fi, and fantasy enthusiasts.
