Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mercury Retrograde (Dark Alchemy #2) by Laura Bickle Lots of stuff happening in this second book. Too much to tell without spoiling it for you. I'll do my best. Gabe and the other Hanged Men are also hunting the Basilisk. They need its blood to save the alchemy tree that gives them life. It's dying and the serpents blood might be their last chance to save it, and themselves. We're back with Petra and her loyal companion, Sig, and they are quickly drawn into the mystery of a giant serpent slithering through the park, killing in horrific ways. The hunt is on. Something kept me from falling immediately in love with this one. Not sure what, but by the end, the author got five stars out of me. I adore Petra, Sig, and Gabe. And she always gives me the most spectacular villains to vote off the island.

Editorial Reviews

“Petra’s adventures in a magic-choked version of Yellowstone continue to balance nicely with a sense of fun, well-done and subtle worldbuilding and characterization, plus some serious stakes. Our protagonist is competent, resourceful and tough without becoming unrealistically formidable. The series feels like it’s building splendidly.”
