    Here's a tantalizing little read with made-up words, an alchemist trainee and boy who just wanted to have fun.  As always, things don't always work like you planned.  It all started when they tried to put the potion on the warlord and it fell on on the prince instead.  The prince turns into a cat.  And the two partners in crime end up in the dungeon...

    Margaret K McElderry and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published November 14th.

    The only way they can save their heads is to try to reverse the potion and turn the prince back into a boy.  They have a limited amount of time to do it and it's just not working.  She's the alchemist, he's the brains.  They finally think they might have conquered it, just as the deadline ends.

    Life gets even more exciting when they find the Czar dead.  He's sleeping on the prince's cat body and he has no blood left.  Unfortunately, the boy is accused of murder.  Never mind that he's not a vampire.  He was there so he must be guilty.

    From here on out the story gets even more fanciful.  The boy is beheaded but he's not dead.  The Czar is trying to raise the dead to head a revolt and kill more people.  The Grim Reaper has been reduced to a pile of bones.  The boy's head travels around.  You never know what you'll encounter in the next chapter.

    It was an interesting read and isn't the least bit boring.  If you're willing to suspend disbelief, you can have a good time reading this.
