Publisher's Summary

A legend buried for 2,000 years. A woman compelled to uncover the truth.

210 BC, China. The most powerful emperor China has ever known is on the brink of death. In desperation, he sends his most gifted alchemist and sorcerer on a quest for the mythical elixir of life.

His fleet never returned...Now, world-renowned archaeologist Georgia Lee is compelled to hunt for a mysterious man who may hold the secret to the greatest discovery in human history.

Her search takes her on a thrilling journey from an ancient tomb in China, through traditional Japan, to the blistering Australian Outback, and the dizzying heights of verdant mountains in tropical Taiwan. But what begins as an investigation into an archaeological riddle turns into something very sinister. Georgia starts to suspect that perhaps she is the one being hunted instead...

Meticulously researched, this is a tale interwoven with rich historical facts to recreate all the drama, intrigue and mystery of East Asian culture.

If you love an intellectual adventure thriller that is also a pause-resisting mystery, get The Imperial Alchemist now.

Compelling until preachy Climate

the story is compelling until the middle when it becomes preachy about the climate and environmental. At least the preachy stops and the story continues. I almost returned it because of the preachiness.
