Product Description

Product Description

Book Two in the Alchemy's Apprentice Series. Marco is about to enter the stage of great happiness in life, he thinks. He has been given a castle and a noble title by the Duke of Barcelon, and he has the most beautiful woman in the world as his beloved fiancee. They have a wedding planned for the upcoming spring, and they are happy together. He has his alchemy to dabble in and work on. Life could not be better.
But a pair of serious accidents forces him and Mirra's brother Glaze to travel to the Isle of Ophiuchus. And even though he is miraculously healed at the temple atop the island, he is given a commandment by the spirit of the island - he is sent on a deadly and arduous quest to recover a scale from the mythical monster, the Echidna, though he doesn't even know where the monster is, or even what it is.
He and Glaze and their unwilling new companion, Porenn, the acolyte of the island who Marco has met before, begin on their way to find out how to proceed with his quest. But before they even finish the first stage of the journey, they find complications and difficulties that will thwart Marco's plans for a straightforward journey.
A long dangerous trip, through the wintertime mountains, will test Marco and his companions. And he'll be forced to travel with watchdogs who keep an eye on him, and tempt him to stray at the same time. Even finding success brings surprising twists in Marco's plans, and by the end of the his story, Marco won't know what his future holds, except another journey.

Other than the fact that I love Jeffrey Quyle's books, this is a total continuation of excellence in the Alchemy series. The characters are exciting and full of individual personality. The plot is well paced and often unexpected.

I look forward to the next book of the series!

Looking forward to the next book. Couldn't put it down as it was very captivating. Have read all of Jeffrey Quyle's book and each is better than the last.

4.0 out of 5 stars Echidna's Scale 12 Dec 2013
By Hope - California - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Jeffrey Q has done it again--written another grand adventure. This story is creative and kept pulling me along to see what would occur next. This 2nd book of the Alchemy Series involves a Sacred Quest undertaken by Marco, 3 creatures from other species, and Marco's new human friend, Kate. Each of their skills are called forth to battle and outwit all the dangers and obstacles which arise enroute to the underworld. Although the book could benefit from a re-edit, the grammatical aspects are not so prevelant as to keep this from being entertaining and a good read. Recommend. I suggest that Jeffrey Q. advertise his books so more people can enjoy them.

Quayle like to build up your hopes and then dash them down to nothing while stringing you along for the next book. The ending was exactly the same as his other series. Yes I will buy the next one but I have to ask myself why? There is allot of conflict with one episode of danger after another with no real ending.
