The Missing Alchemist is book one in The Young Alchemist series written by the exceptional and talented author Caldric Blackwell and wow what a stellar start to a series! The Missing Alchemist is a book I was keen to read ever since discovering it because I always love to find adorable, heart-warming and inspiring adventure/fantasy stories to read so when I discovered The Missing Alchemist I thought ‘is this finally the perfect book?!’. Now that I have finished The Missing Alchemist I can happily write that yes it is book lovers. The Missing Alchemist is one of the most well written and well-developed stories I have ever come across, and I truly mean this as The Missing Alchemist is exceptional and should not be missed!
The Missing Alchemist is a fantasy adventure that will introduce the reader to the protagonist, Craig Pike. Craig is a young man who grew up in an orphanage so when he eventually becomes the student of the famous alchemist, Cornelius, he does not take it for granted. But soon Cornelius is kidnapped, and it is up to Craig and his friend Audrey Clife to find him. Their journey will be a dangerous one and they will encounter many creatures along the way but the journey is a thrilling one and it was so amazing to be a part of!
The story of The Missing Alchemist is a thrilling one thanks to the enthralling and action-packed moments as well as the unpredictable nature of the book that will have the readers turning the pages with haste from beginning to end. I love books that involve a journey because usually in these stories the character develops and grows as they overcome events and battles which in turn adds to the development of the character and explores life lessons throughout the book and that is most certainly the case with The Missing Alchemist. What I loved most about The Missing Alchemist is that the reader is taken on an adventure that is continuously evolving and changing and that in turn kept my attention.
Caldric Blackwell is an incredibly talented author who clearly knows how to write unique but engaging stories. It was evident to me from the start that Blackwell is a passionate writer who surely loves entertaining readers with his literature and putting a smile on readers’ faces. I loved this about the author but what I loved the most about Blackwell’s writing is his remarkable descriptions because they genuinely amazed me. Fantasy novels, in general, are difficult to write because you have to transport the reader quickly and effortlessly, but sadly this is rarely accomplished in a fantasy story but not with The Missing Alchemist. The Missing Alchemist is the way it is because Blackwell knows what he is doing! Blackwell knows how to whisk his readers away to a fantasy land and entice them with magnificent descriptions and keep readers entertained from start to finish!
Overall The Missing Alchemist is a marvelous, stellar and supreme fantasy book that will entertain, delight as well as charm young readers and even adults! And so I, of course, have to award this book five stars!
