Product Description

Product Description

To a master alchemist like Addie, impossible is just another word for challenge. When a fiery explosion destroys the Alchemica, the premier alchemy institute in the United States, she’s left with nothing. No home, no colleagues, and no memory. Learning what happened seems impossible, but she still has one strength, and in her opinion, it’s the only one she needs. She hasn’t forgotten a thing about alchemy.

Addie brews a potion to restore her lost past, but remembers only the flames of the Alchemica’s destruction—and a man among the ashes. A man with the elemental power of fire, who just happens to be the leader of the magical community. He might know what happened, but getting him to tell her will require some…creativity. The magical aren’t fond of alchemists. Some say it borders on hatred, but Addie isn’t one to back down from a challenge, even if that challenge happens to be a man who can turn her to ash with a thought.

About the Author

Becca Andre lives in southern Ohio with her husband, two children, and an elderly Jack Russell Terrier. A love of science and math (yes, she’s weird like that), led to a career as a chemist where she blows things up far more infrequently than you’d expect. Other interests include: chocolate, hard rock, and slaying things on the Xbox. She also finds writing about herself in third person a bit strange.

A cool, well-paced urban fantasy. I breezed through the entire series up to 3.5. Strong characters, interesting dark fantasy characters and interactions. New looks at existing fantasy roles. Original "return of magic" setting is easy to get to know and compelling.

HASH(0xb28a06fc) out of 5 stars Awesome, sexy urban fantasy Sept. 28 2013
By KinDallas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Well written, fast paced and twistier than a mountain road...if you love a great urban fantasy, you need to try The Final Formula. Every character is fully realized, and who doesn't love a feisty, sarcastic heroine?

Addie is an alchemist with a problem--she has total amnesia. Rescued from the ruin of the Alchemica, the premier Alchemy institute in the U.S., she remembers nothing about her past...except alchemy. And she's darn good at it. But why?

After preparing a memory potion, Addie hopes to remember everything that happened. Instead, she gets sketchy memories of the night the Alchemica burned...and of the Fire Elemental, one of the four leaders of the American magical community. A man who could turn her to ashes with a thought holds all the answers, or so she thinks.

From there, things take a number of twists and turns as Addie, her friend James (who has his own secret) and the elementals race to find out what happened that night before someone else does.

What I love most about this tale is Addie's world view. She's snarky, but vulnerable. Hard, but naive. She hopes everything will turn out for the best, but plans for the worst. She has heart, but knows how to outsmart an enemy. Addie's study in contrasts, and that makes for a compelling character. A big plus--her romance with Rowan is just plain hot. There's a dark side to all this as well, including a double-cross, a pack of zombies and something haunting in Addie's past. I'm dying to read the next installment.

HASH(0xb279c348) out of 5 stars Wonderful Story! Ready for second book . . . Sept. 29 2013
By Neith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I loved this book and am hoping it was the first in a series! Becca Andre has created a very interesting world where magic has returned and alchemy works. Addy (short for Addled Alchemist) has lost her memory and is desperately seeking to get it back. Her best friend, James, is a Hellhound as well as a budding alchemist. There are Elementals, necromancers, zombies and plenty of others to keep things lively. Fast pace keeps the reader from getting bored.

Main characters are well drawn and the writing is quite good. Did run into one formatting weirdness where one scene ran into another in a confusing manner. Otherwise very professional effort for a first book. :-)

HASH(0xb279c3a8) out of 5 stars This Formula Works Well Nov. 23 2014
By Amber B Enterprises - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Not much for the supernatural. However, this writer did a wonderful job weaving a tale and sucking in the reader. She clearly has talent, but could use a professional editor. Otherwise I would recommend you give this story a chance. It stands by itself quite well. Although there are more in the series, this one is an intense thriller, with enough magic, for folks who enjoy the world or magic, the elements and alchemy.
I recommend this book for a fun read, and you may get hooked enough to get the rest of the series.

HASH(0xb279c468) out of 5 stars Surprisingly Good! July 11 2014
By D A Bale - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Paranormal is not usually my thing, so I was pleasantly surprised by how wrapped up in this book I became. I was intrigued by Addie (and loved how she came by that name) and the mystery surrounding what happened to her and to the Alchemica Academy. Addie was a strong and confident character while still suffering from amnesia over the events of that night when the Academy blew up. A few of the character interactions were a little off, and I was confused by what some of the magical characters were all about (but I attribute that to my own lack of paranormal reading experience), but overall I found the story engaging enough to keep me up waaay past my bedtime. And now I've already purchased book two and am looking forward to reading it.

An interesting storyline and characters and the fact that it spurred me on enough to purchase book two give four stars to this novel.

HASH(0xb279ca08) out of 5 stars It started out a five Aug. 6 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A bit of magic, mystery and great characters. I thought a really good bok for a variety of family members. Until two characters had descriptive sex! What! No longer a book for tweens. I am not a teenager (age 64), but I found myself wondering if it contributed to the story line. Not really, but it did narrow the field for readers. I finished the book which came to rather a sorry ending and encourages the reader to purchase the next book. It's up to you to chose.
