    Aj the Ravenous Reader

    I didn t expect much from The Alchemy of Forever I ve been putting the book on hold for the longest time possible because I simply assumed it s going to be the same old fantasy sci fi yawn inducing read but I started it yesterday and finished it the same day I was quite surprised to find it an entertaining read about a girl named Sera who has lived for than 600 years because Cyrus an alchemist who discovered a concoction that will allow a soul to inhabit a human body it chooses saved her from d [...]

    Reincarnation has always been an iffy subject for me I m not easily interested or impressed with it I can happily say that the Alchemy of Forever is by far the best reincarnation story I have ever read though I haven t read that many but still it was awesome In The Alchemy of Forever, when Seraphina dies next to Cyrus, the man who was to take her hand, he gives her a drop of Alchemy potion he s discovered, that allows Seraphina to attach her soul to another body She can now live forever jumping [...]

    The scariest thing about Incarnates is that we look just like everyone else.Another YA with a brilliant premise that doesn t quite deliver, The Alchemy of Forever is bad when it could have easily been epic Sera is an immortal or Incarnate, like they re called in this one who has to steal other people s souls to take over their bodies as her s dies after about every 10 years Cyrus is the one who turned her and her love for him died out a long time ago Sera s decided that her current body will be [...]

    I really do not know what is going on in the YA universe lately, but the quality of writing from debut authors is dropping drastically This book was just ridiculous It was completely unbelievable in every way, and the underdeveloped characters were all idiots I should have known not to read this book when it said for fans of the Immortals series, but noooooo I wanted to give a new author a chance Yea Big mistake Let s start with the characters Seraphina is supposed to be this unselfish, caring p [...]

    This book is AWESOME That s really all I want to say, short and sweet But because this is a review, and I want the world to read this book, I guess I will go into a bit detail The book starts out with a rockin setting, way back in the 1300 s, where we first meet Sera I love seeing that touch of otherworldly ness It s so different from what we know today.Chapter two fast forwards several hundred years later, to current day It s great to see how much Sera has evolved She s a wonderfully done char [...]

    Providing readers with a thoroughly interesting and unique perspective on incarnation, Avery Williams has great promise to offer with her Incarnation series, a good portion of which is executed in The Alchemy of Forever Williams take on the thought provoking concept of incarnation is certainly a refreshing and alluring one, touching less on religion and life after death, as I had initially expected, and on science, which I found to be exceptionally original and fascinating The characters in The [...]

    The Alchemy of Forever I don t have much to say on the subject It was one of those books that you absolutely have no opinion on, because you couldn t care less Yes, this was a good book, yes, I would read the next one, and yes, I have nothing to say The plot was good, interesting, but could have been better The idea behind it was good and the twists and turns kept me reading I liked how not everything went the way it was supposed to be.Some characters were completly useless and a waste of words, [...]

    Stacia (the 2010 club)

    The ending of this book quite possibly made me giddy 3.5 stars.2012 The year of the villain One could only hope Real villains are due for a comeback Not the good boy turned bad type of character I m talking rotten to the core villains The kind we love to hate The kind we all hope have no redemption, other than the sort which involves a shallow grave.If the ending of book 1 is any indication, I do believe we have the possibility of getting to read about one extremely disturbed villain in book 2 A [...]

    First of all, guys do check this out I have made a fan made cast for this book youtube watch v hYIb65Well, this book was something And I mean it in a good way _ The cover was just okay for me, the blurb seemed nice but the trailer here made me read this book Yes, I am a sucker for good trailers and even if the book has been rated one star, I would have read this simply because of the trailer.The story seemed nice It was good yet slow This was like a developing story and since this is just the fi [...]


    Jessie(Ageless Pages Reviews)

    Read This Review More Like ItOn My Blog Short but sweet, The Alchemy of Forever is deceptively simple and remarkably engaging The plot may not be entirely the most original, nor the writing the most striking, though it certainly has its moments of sparkle, but this was an unputdownable read Finished in under three hours, my first experience with the series of the Incarnates was like the perfect sugary snack between actual meals filling while eating and left no feelings of guilt or shame when I w [...]

    That was really cool Just when I thought I ve read every type of YA book imaginable, The Alchemy of Forever takes me by surprise.Seraphina is a 600 year old Incarnation, an immortal who takes other people s bodies to continue living But after six centuries, Sera is tired of living and killing other people just to extend her own life She plans her own suicide in secret, desperate to get away from her controlling sorta but not really boyfriend, Cyrus Only in the act, she accidentally takes another [...]

    Rachel Gunter

    The Alchemy Of Forever was a quick and easy paranormal read about a girl who can live forever, but only by taking over the body of somebody else I liked Sera, she was brave to stand up to Cyrus, and clearly had developed a conscience over taking over bodies The romance was nice but I hope it s explored a bit in the next book And I want to see if anyone in the Morgan family Kailey s friends find out about Sera and the alchemy And that ending view spoiler I wonder if Cyrus has done something to N [...]

    Seraphina first died when she was 14 years old But the smitten son of the local alchemist tipped a vial of immortality to her mouth and made her an immortal, an Incarnate Switching from body to body after the old one wears out, living her life inside vessels stolen from others 600 years later and Seraphina has had enough She s tired of living with the guilt of killing people, tired of living under Cyrus ever watchful eye, tired, tired, tired So on the night she is meant to take a new body, she m [...]

    Seraphina whose last name is Ames according to the book product description, although I don t think we ever read that in the book itself is killed during a robbery in London when she was 14 Fortunately, Cyrus, a boy she likes, is with her when it happens Cyrus s father is an apothecary, and Cyrus has developed a potion which will allow her soul to be free to inhabit the body of another Cyrus makes Sera drink the potion fortunately he carries some with him everywhere before she dies and helps her [...]


    Megan

    THE ALCHEMY OF FOREVER, a 2012 debut by Avery Williams, promises the mix of immortality with the drama of teenage discovery I didn t know what to expect diving into this otherwise, except for the fact that at 256 pages, it was going to be a quick read Sadly, quick read is pretty much one of the few things this story has going for it The plot flows quickly with good writing at times just a tad clunky and the pacing is smooth, but things go downhill quickly from there.The story of Seraphina Ames, [...]


    Rayne

    Review originally posted at mycutebookshelf 2012 0Yes I read this because of Full Metal Alchemist That show is one of my favorite animes ever, if not my very favorite, so seeing as this book shared some elements with FMA, I decided to give it a try I wanted some resemblance I didn t want the exact same plot of the first anime adaptation of FMA So this story was not original to me at all But I was willing to set aside my discomfort with that Turns out, there were other things to worry about with [...]

    WHAT No, no, no, no How can it end like that Full Review This book was so flawlessly written The pages and the chapters all blended together so incredibly well that it was basically impossible to put this book down The writing and the descriptions in this book were so stunning and honestly gorgeous even so than the cover I found myself rereading sections and pages 2 or 3 times.I mean is this not an amazing excerpt They say Halloween is a time when the veil over the world of the spirits is the t [...]

    It only takes a good plot and or an amazing cover to get me to read a book Alchemy of Forever caught me by its very intriguing plot Not that I haven t read anything like it, but I was curious enough to find out how this goes Alas, a book with so much potential but fell short At first I couldn t figure out why the book felt off for me Then I kept thinking, it was okay but there just wasn t enough clarity for me I had to do a bit of review reading over what exactly was my problem with the book bec [...]


    Jessica

    That cover is atrocious It should apologize to everyone who has to look at it, but proves that you can t judge a book by its cover I hated this book before I started it because of that cover I even resented the person who gave it to me a bit because LOOK AT IT The paperback covers are much acceptable but I, unfortunately, have the hardcover.Anyway, the review.This book was, contrary to the way it looks, not bad It s an extremely short read and has all the making of a horrifying YA PNR but it to [...]

    I started The Alchemy of Forever three weeks ago, got halfway through it, then accidentally abandoned it at my dentist office an hour away from where I live This caused many annoyed shouts of expletives when I realized I couldn t finish it later in the evening A recent trip home for the holidays turned it back up in my greedy little hands and I devoured the rest of it immediately.Avery Williams s 2012 debut starts in London in 1349 A man named Cyrus is pursuing the beautiful Seraphina at a maske [...]

    Whew Talk about a book that can force you to forget about daily chores Seriously, when I first received this book, I just thought it was going to be another young adult paranormal to add to my list of reads without any thought However, once you start reading about Sera and Cyrus you forget everything else just to find out what is going to happen.The first part of the book features Sera and Cyrus It goes into detail on how the two met and how they have come to be immortal Cyrus learned of a way [...]

    This review can also be found here I bought this book in July of 2012 at Books A Million during a sale for 3 and it sat on my bookshelf untouched until recently I really wish that I had read this one sooner since I absolutely loved it Everything about this book drew me in, from the plot to the settings and the characters themselves I ve never read a book anything like this one The idea of Incarnates taking over new bodies every time they are about to die was a completely new thing for me and I a [...]

    3.5 starsI actually wasn t expecting much from The Alchemy of Forever because, for some reason, the summary didn t click with meI guess things turned out pretty well, all things considered There were parts that I loved, but there were others that I felt meh about.The Good1 Sera Some people might find her character a bit too angsty, but I never really got annoyed with her probably because I could see where she was coming from I loved reading about her guilt and her contemplations of death even th [...]

    Also posted on the blog jana thebookgoddess If there was one word I would describe this book, it would be short Yes I know that s not the best description, but yeah SHORT As in, short in character development, short in novel length seriously, I think I m the only one who thought this book was just a half of a book , short in romance, short in action and yes, you get the idea, right I heard that this was a very surprising read in a good way, but I came out very disappointed The first few chapters [...]

    4.5 starsAvery Williams entices and ensnares in this dazzling debut.Seraphina, or Sera as she likes to be called, is a heroine that possesses a subtle kind of bravery Emerging after centuries of guilt and desperation, it propels Sera to take some pretty drastic measures to get away from her boyfriend, Cyrus, and the ruthless measures he s been taking to stay alive I liked Sera a lot She s honest with herself and you can see the weariness her life has brought her She has a conscience.I read some [...]
