Jack is about to discover how to make gold-but the secret art will come at a priceThe year is 1720, and Jack, a London blacksmith's apprentice, is fleeing from his master's punishment. Now a runaway, Jack's wanderings take him by the Thames River, where he plucks a curious little pot out of the water. Hoping that his find is valuable, Jack discovers that the pot belongs to a practitioner of the forbidden art of alchemy. The alchemist agrees to take Jack on as an apprentice and teach him his secret art. But what the alchemist offers will not lead to shelter or security-instead, it's something far more wonderful and perilous. Jack's quest will take him to some unexpected places, where he'll learn that there's more to alchemy than he bargained for. Will learning the secrets of making gold come at an even greater cost?
