Despite being more than 100 years old still a very enjoyable book about the aspirations, hopes and misadventures of a (misguided?) young man, from a very small village, who is going serve his country (Belgium) in Congo colony.
Since releasing his first book in February 2015, Matt Ryan has published ten books, including the bestselling Preston Six series. His fans were thrilled when he announced his second series, the Alchemist Academy, which takes place in the same world. Today Ryan reveals why he created such an unique magic system for this series, why the teachers at the Academy are so ruthless and how Allie's character came to be.
