Overall Rating: 5 Stars
Title: Chantress Alchemy
Author: Amy Butler Greenfield
Series: Chantress #2
Lucy races against time and magic in this compelling sequel to the “richly and thoughtfully written” (Publishers Weekly) Chantress.
Lucy is the last Chantress, the only remaining girl who can sing magic into the world. Since she defeated the evil Lord Scargrave, England has changed – and not for the better. With crops failing and the people rebelling, Lucy is called urgently back to King Henry’s court. His Inner Council is convinced that making gold through alchemy will save England. But a critical element to the alchemical process has been stolen. Lucy is tasked with finding it with her magic… or else. And until she succeeds, the castle is on lockdown.
Court too has changed. Scargrave’s brutal Chantress-hunter has become King Henry’s closest advisor. Lucy’s beloved Nat has fallen out of favor and is shunned by his colleagues. Their romance means trouble for both of them. Worst of all, something goes wrong with Lucy’s magic. The palace is a labyrinth, and there’s a monster at its heart – a monster who may have the power to defeat Lucy once and for all.
Amy Butler Greenfield returns to the beguiling world of Chantress for a suspenseful tale of courtly intrigue, music, and magic in Chantress Alchemy.
This is another one of those books that you get so caught up in, you forget what’s happening around you. A perfect way to block out reality.
This book is so good!
I’ve been waiting and waiting to find a perfect fantasy/magical book that I can get lost in and this did just the trick. I knew before I even read the series that it was going to be a good one.
I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good fantasy book with a little bit of romance to make their day a little more magical!

Book Boyfriend Rating: 3 stars
I was about to give him ⅘ stars but then the end of the book came. It’s like a rollercoaster with him, exciting but scary.
