Sneak A Peek Saturday: Alchemy of Forever by Avery Williams

Sneak a Peek Saturday is a feature that I like to indulge in because I cannot wait to read the tasty tid bits that are put out there for us readers to enjoy. This week I have selected THE ALCHEMY OF FOREVER by Avery Williams. I enjoy a good love story and anything tale that transcends time, involves body swamping and the fact that you cannot kiss the one you want has my complete attention. What also makes this a great choice is that the author lives in the bay area. YEAY!!

People say 'love never dies'… but love might be the death of Seraphina. Seraphina has been alive since the Middle Ages, when her boyfriend, Cyrus, managed to perfect a method of alchemy that lets them swap bodies with any human being. Sera ran away from Cyrus years ago, when she realized that what they were doing—taking the lives of innocent people—was wrong. She doesn't want to die, so she finds young people who are on the brink of death, and inhabits their bodies. When we meet Sera, she has landed in the body of a girl named Kailey who was about to die in a car accident. For the first time, Sera falls in love with the life of the person she's inhabiting. Sera also falls for the boy next door, Noah. And soon it's clear the feelings are returned. Unfortunately, she can never kiss Noah, because for her to touch lips with a human would mean the human's death. And she has even more to worry about: Cyrus is chasing her, and if she stays in one place for long, she puts herself—and the people she's grown to care for—in danger.

  1. A Bay Area author? Very interested now. The title, too, is memorable. Although the swapping bodies part and malevolent ex-boyfriend reminds me just a little bit of Juliet Immortal.
