A Reader’s Guide to Cynthea Masson’s The Alchemists’ Council

Sci-fi and fantasy writer Matthew Graybosch is writing a series of blog posts with in-depth commentary on the first instalment in an acclaimed new fantasy trilogy by Cynthea Masson. Each week, Matthew and his guest blogger, Eric "Stile Teckel" Higby, will be synopsizing a chapter of the book, as well as providing insights and historical context to Cynthea’s setting.

Cynthea will also be answering questions and providing her own feedback on her blog, News From Council Dimension, so be sure to check that out, too!

We’ll update this post each week with the new links so you can follow along and add your comments.

Just a head’s up: both blogs contain *gasp* spoilers of the book, so consider yourself warned.
