Book Review: The Alchemy of Forever (Incarnation #1) by Avery Williams

Seraphina escapes her controlling immortal boyfriend, Cyrus, only to wind up in a teenager’s body. Kidzworld has the book review of The Alchemy of Forever by Avery Williams, book one in the Incarnation series.

How It Began

Way back in the 14th Century, Seraphina Ames had a chance encounter with the local apothecary’s son, Cyrus, outside of the masquerade ball. When a couple of beggars stabbed Seraphina, Cyrus fed her an elixir that saved her life, and made her immortal. But there was a price. Through a kiss, Seraphina was forced to inhabit another person’s body. After ten years, that body would start to break down, at which time she’d have to claim a new one.

The Controlling Boyfriend

For over 600 years, Seraphina has lived under the watchful reign of the controlling Cyrus. But Seraphina has had enough. She doesn’t want to take anymore lives, she wants to experience death, and, most of all, she wants to escape Cyrus.

The Escape

Without Cyrus knowing, Seraphina plans an elaborate escape on the night that she’s supposed to take a new body, which will ultimately lead to her death. But when she witnesses a car accident with its 16-year-old driver on the verge of death, she unintentionally takes her body. For the first time since the 14th century, Seraphina occupies the body of a teenager, which means rules, school, parents and dramatic friendships. But there are perks to this new life: she has a home with a loving family and a cute neighbor next door. As long as Cyrus never finds her, she could live this way for years. But that, of course, is easier said than done.

The Bottom Line

The Alchemy of Forever is a quick read, but it has an engaging plot that mixes the many aspects of teenage life with immortality. Unlike a typical controlling boyfriend, Cyrus has wealth and stealth on his side, along with a charm that has other woman swooning. This is the first book in the Incarnation series, and we definitely recommend it to anyone who loves paranormal teen books
