Runes, magic, fate and family are at the heart of this book aimed firmly at the Young Adult Fiction market. The background is rooted in reality thus making the story all the more credible. The Alchemist’s Daughter may be looked upon as a book for teens or adults, an action/adventure story, a mystery, a fantasy, an alternative history but ultimately an esoteric work of literature.
The writers’ aims are to write entertaining, exciting, thought-provoking novels that work on several levels. Whether they succeed or not is up to readers to judge.
Seven Runes (the series of books) is a quest and coming of age tale of Freya Vanaheim - to find the seven runes that make up the all-magik. Each book is the story of each rune and its aquisition and follows Freya over a 9 year period as she becomes the first female runemaster.
Freya enjoys a normal, non-magical, comfortable middle class life with her parents until her father initiates her into a secret masonic like sect - the runemasters .
The Alchemist’s Daughter begins in a good middle class Edinburgh home in Morningside, Edinburgh, 1900, as it rejoices to the girlish laughter of Freya and her friends celebrating Freya’s twelfth birthday. This veneer of normality is suddenly cast aside by the appearance of a mysterious stranger. What follows is a heart-stopping, enthralling adventure as Freya - with the help of friends she has not yet met - battles against enemies and forces she never even imagined existed.
