Agatha Christie meets Stranger Things in this award-winning mystery.
A chance for a new beginning in Portland, Oregon. A stowaway from Paris who’s slowly turning to stone. And an alchemical mystery neither can refuse.
Unpacking her belongings in her new fixer-upper house, alchemist Zoe Faust discovers a stowaway. Dorian is a living, breathing gargoyle―not to mention a master of French cuisine―and he needs Zoe's expertise to unlock the secrets of a centuries-old text that may save his life.
Zoe is trying to put her old life behind her, but how can she say no to her new friend who’s turning to stone?
Love quirky and humorous mysteries, mischievous gargoyles, and a cast of friends you’ll want to join for a cup of tea?
Don’t miss the first book in the Anthony Award-winning Accidental Alchemist Mystery Series by USA Today bestselling author Gigi Pandian.
