The Alchemists' Council (The Alchemists' Council #1)
Jason Henry's review
Jul 16, 2016
I grabbed this book almost at random from the store because I liked what the title seemed to imply (politics and a richly developed magic system) and I was not disappointed! I was so impressed with the author's mix of existing alchemical lore and her own creations to craft the world of Council Dimension, and she portrayed everything so convincingly that I was shocked not to find a Wikipedia page for "Novillian Scribe" or "Azoth Magen" I also loved how the cosmology of the book magnified the effects of personal choices, making the stakes colossally high while still remaining intensely personal for the characters. Good stuff.
