Jack is about to discover how to make goldbut the secret art will come at a priceThe year is 1720, and Jack, a London blacksmith's apprentice, is fleeing the punishment of his master. Now a runaway, Jack's wanderings take him to the Thames River, where he plucks a curious little pot out of the water. Hoping that his find will prove valuable, Jack discovers that it belongs to a practitioner of the forbidden art of alchemy. The alchemist agrees to take Jack on as an apprentice and teach him his secret craft, which will lead not to shelter or security, but to something far more wonderful and perilous. Jack's quest will take him to unexpected places where he'll learn that there's more to alchemy than he bargained for. But will learning the secrets of making gold come at too great a cost?
