    4. An absolutely amazing sequel that was even better that the first, Chantress Alchemy was a brilliant read It had thrills, secrets, betrayals, romance, and it was all wonderful Loved it Lucy became an even stronger character in this book In book 1, she was already badass, but she got even tougher in this book She proved that it wasn t just her magic that made her strong She also had the strong will and cleverness that made her a force to be reckoned with, magic or no magic She was just great, an a [...]

    6. I read Chantress last year as one of my Alyssa Recommends and enjoyed it well enough, then it took me a lil while to get this book and it s been sitting in the TBR pile for quite some time, but finally I started it a few days ago, and although it didn t grab me instantly and I had to put it aside to finish some other books, once I got back to it, I read it in one sitting I had some issues with Lucy at first because she was such a mix of unsure and reckless at the same time, that she was a bit fr [...]

    7. This book was such an emotional roller coaster I thought that Lucy s life after defeating Lord Scargrave would be much calmer but it seems her adventures never end In the first book we didn t have the chance to experience the life in the palace but now we can see the way Lucy s life changes after entering the court, a place full of plots and traitors New characters are introduced in this book and they all are as much interesting as suspicious I could feel Lucy s pain as she was facing her strugg [...]

    14. As seen on my blog It is with a mind filled to the brim with mentions of The Philosopher s StoneHarry that you Oh wait Wrong book But all the same, magic is abound And in Chantress Alchemy, Amy Butler Greenfield has brought it back with a vengeance Book two isn t exactly a direct continuation of book one, which is absolutely fine with me sometimes we need that in trilogies, books within them that could stand completely fine on their own, thank you very much The author was successful in bringing [...]

    15. Wait, what That s how this one ends Well that just stinks 3.5 stars, then, instead of the 4 I was prepared to give it.So I don t recall all that happened in the first book, but I do remember the main points Strangely, however, I don t remember this Wrexham guy at all But I m pretty sure I hate him enough after one book to make up for not remembering him from the first.Honestly, I was pretty frustrated or with a good deal of the characters in this book Wrexham, the King, basically all of the Cou [...]

    16. It s been about a year since I d read Chantress but I still remembered liking the book Because of the time that s passed though, I couldn t remember some of the plot details of the earlier book But it s no matter because Amy Butler Greenfield does a decent job at recounting some of the key events in the earlier book and it took me no time at all to get back into Chantress Alchemy and delving back into Lucy s world, with her guardian Norrie, her love Nate and her fledging Chantress powers.After L [...]

    19. This is the second book in the Chantress Trilogy The first book was one that I thought was great and really enjoyed, with the magic and the singing and the alchemy The sweet little romance between the main character and her love interest certainly helped too Now this one picks up what seems to be about a years or so where the first book left off Lucy being called back to court isn t what she wants at all She has been practicing her magic, but it is changing like so many things in her life Lucy h [...]

    20. I will start off by saying that while I really loved Chantress, Chantress Alchemy was EVEN BETTER I felt that Amy Butler Greenfield really stepped it up with the second book in this trilogy Because we had gotten soo much backround information, character and world building in the first book, Chantress Alchemy was able to start right off with the action Everything really just worked for me I loved how mysterious and exciting this book was It was jam packed with court intrigue, adventure, magic, an [...]

    24. Let me just start off by saying that this book is one of the must action filled books I ve read in a long time With the first book, Lucy was just discovering herself and what it truly means to be a Chantress The first book in the story was filled with such slow sweet character development and world building But in the second book, everything that needed to be set up was done, and the story just took up beautifully I feel like his is the first series, where I actually enjoyed the second book bett [...]

    25. REVIEW Chantress Alchemy may be second in its series, but it certainly stands well on its own All I know is I tore through the pages of this novel, eager to know what would happen to Lucy, to the King, and to the rest of the Kingdom Basically, Greenfield has managed that rare trick of writing a sequel that s even better than its predecessor If you ve read my review of Chantress, one of my comments on Lucy was that she faded into a crowd of typical fantasy heroines Chantress Alchemy has certainly [...]

    26. Too rapid of a pace, and a somewhat undeveloped cast of characters, the world building and the hare brained romance are the flaws of Chantress Alchemya writing style I myself found fault with participated also Tho though, mind you, it was NOT a bad book in the least Lucy, Nathaniel, Henry IX of Britain and Sybil and Gabriel were all bright characters Particularly I myself favored the concept of Shadowgrims and their opponents the Chantresses Needless to say the Shadowgrims were from the prior bo [...]

    27. In this sequel to Chantress, Lucy finds herself summoned to Court again to find the stolen Golden Crucible, an alchemical tool that is essential in making the Philosopher s Stone But all she finds is a starving kingdom and a court filled with intrigueChantress didn t seem like the kind of book that needed to have a sequel, which perhaps explains the general feeling of meh that permeates this book Chantress Alchemy certainly has its strong points The writing is strong and graceful, especially wit [...]

    28. Chantress Alchemy reminded me why I love the Chantress series so much The magic, hidden secrets and the danger around every corner always have my desperately turning page after page Lucy is stronger than ever in Chantress Alchemy, and even with all the dangers around court, she manages to remain ever outspoken and strong As the story of Chantress Alchemy twisted and turned, it always left me guessing the next turn or reveal Lucy faces terrifying danger, and unknown foes at court, and the King is [...]

    29. 3.5 stars.I really enjoyed this book Like the first one, it is a story that you want to savor but at the same time you want to race through because it is so captivating Also like the first book, there is a mystery going on that is fast paced and adventurous There were two things that I didn t like about this book Now this isn t a huge spoiler but it is in some ways so if you don t want to know anything at all about the relationships of the characters, I would advise you to stop reading In this b [...]

    30. Starts out even stronger than the first book, but begins to sag in the middle Long, aimless conversations and new character introductions just drag out the plot needlessly Lucy couldn t possibly be distracted by everything but the urgent mission she s been tasked with At this point, she doesn t even think about it, like she hopes if she ignores it it ll go away I mostly felt in the dark about the vanishing of her magic I didn t feel the stakes of it until the reason was revealed at the end, hen [...]
