Read Strange Alchemy Online Free - Gwenda Bond's first book Blackwood has been reimagined and brought back to life with new vision. On Roanoke Island, the legend of the Lost Colony—and the 114 colonists who vanished without a trace more than four hundred years ago—still haunts the town. But that’s just a story told for the tourists.
When 114 people suddenly disappear from the island in present day, it seems history is repeating itself—and an unlikely pair of seventeen-year-olds might be the only hope of bringing the missing back. Miranda Blackwood, a member of one of island’s most infamous families, and Grant Rawling, the sherrif’s son, who has demons and secrets of his own, find themselves at the center of the mystery.
As the unlikely pair works to uncover the secrets of the new Lost Colony, they must dodge everyone from the authorities to long-dead alchemists as they race against time to save their family and friends before they too are gone for good.

This had a very interesting premise. As someone who resides in the state of Virginia, my interest was piqued when I read the blurb and I knew I had to pick this up. The first 50% of the book was absolutely captivating; I couldn't put this down and I just had to know what was going to hap...

There aren’t that many YA stories written around the legend of the Roanoke disappearances, or at least not many that I know of, so I’m always excited when I stumble upon one. Such was the case with Strange Alchemy by Gwenda Bond. I hadn’t heard of this book prior to it being reworked and rereleas...

I have mixed feelings about Bond's work. My previous experiences with it had me loving one book ( Girl on a Wire ) and disliking the next ( Girl in the Shadows ) so I wasn't sure what to expect from Strange Alchemy, especially as it's listed as a revised version of her first book.
I'll say this fo...

DNF Se nota demasiado que este es uno de los primeros trabajos de Gwenda y no le llega ni a los talones a la Saga Lois Lane.
Tenemos una isla y una familia maldita que no puede salir de ahí.Todo pinta bien hasta que te encuentras con un slow pace,puras obras de teatro que claramente son relleno y...

Gwend Bond was in my authors' list of to be read since a long time. I catched few details of some of her books on Goodreads, so when I saw that Netgalley was offering this title, I didn't say no.
And it was a wise choice, since I enjoyed Strange Alchemy quite a lot.
Firs of all, I need to write tha...
