The Apothecary

Title: The Apothecary
By: Maile Meloy

Move over Harry, Ron, and Hermione; meet Benjamin, Janie, and Pip. But there are no wands here and no parallel otherworlds; just cold, battle-scarred, postwar London... as well as an ancient tome, shadow government, and a secret alchemical tradition in which the exquisite transformation of matter is not only possible but key to countering the cruder science of atom-splitting and world domination. This book is an elixir in itself, a powerfully charged blend of science, magic, politics, suspense, humor, and history in a tincture of superb prose.
