American Alchemy: Gold by Oliver Altair grabbed my attention with the form of a personal letter dated June 1, 1850. The letter paints a gruesome landscape of greed, deceit, sorrow and revenge. I had absolutely no clue what the author had planned, and being so unpredictable made the story that much more entertaining. The mix of American history and ancient alchemy is as brilliant as the gold within these pages.
I would love to read more from this author in the future...
