Geologist Petra Dee arrives in Wyoming seeking clues to her father’s disappearance years ago. What she finds instead is Temperance, a dying western town with a gold rush past and a meth-infested present. But under the dust and quiet, an old power is shifting. When bodies start turning up – desiccated and twisted skeletons that Petra can’t scientifically explain – her investigations land her in the middle of a covert war between the town’s most powerful interests. Petra’s father wasn’t the only one searching for the alchemical secrets of Temperance, and those still looking are now ready to kill. Armed with nothing but shaky alliances, a pair of antique guns, and a relic she doesn’t understand, the only thing Petra knows for sure is that she and her coyote sidekick are going to have to move fast – or die next.

In the past year Zel lost her father, the boy she loves, her safety, and any future she might have imagined for herself. Now she, her sister, and the band of genetic outcasts they’ve come to call their family are forced on the run when their safe house is attacked by men with neural guns. But on the way to a rumored haven in Chicago, Zel hears something – a whisper from Cy, the boy who traded himself for her sister’s safety. And when she veers off plan in order to search for him, what she finds is not what she expected. There’s more to their genetic mutations than they ever imagined…aspects that make them wonder if they might be accepted by the outside world after all.

[REVIEW] Dark Alchemy – Laura Bickle

Temperance, Wyoming, is a town of illicit drug use, rapidly-healing ranch hands, and the last known location of Dr. Petra Dee’s father. Whilst asking questions, the geologist comes across calcified corpses and a mystery that leads underground, where the most beautiful and grotesque things live.

Laura Bickle brings a fresh approach to alchemy, explaining the stages to achieve transformation in an understandable and interesting way that makes learning chemistry fun. Petra Dee is a clever and relatable heroine who keeps her eye on the prize, accompanied by her trusty coyote friend. But it’s the gobsmacking, vivid imagery of the caves and the Lunaria that will really grab readers.

This fascinating novel provides a great look at a proto-science about which I’d love to learn more. Dark Alchemy is brilliant as a stand-alone, yet a return trip to Temperance wouldn’t be unwelcome. Come for the western, but stay for the weird science!
