The Imperial Alchemist

A. H. Wang

A legend buried for 2000 years. A race against time to uncover the truth.

210 BCE, CHINA. The most powerful emperor China has ever known is on the brink of death. In desperation, he sends his trusted alchemist on a quest for the mythical elixir of life.

His fleet never returned...

NOW, renowned archaeologist Professor Georgia Lee is determined to unlock the secret to the greatest discovery in human history. But she's not the only one seeking the precious elixir of life. Pursued by those who will kill to possess it, Georgia must find the one man who can help her win this deadly treasure hunt.

With every twist and turn bringing her closer to her enemies, she is thrust into a globetrotting, pulse-pounding adventure from the forgotten tombs of ancient China to the treacherous jungles of Taiwan.

Meticulously researched, this is a tale blended with rich historical facts to recreate all the drama, intrigue, and mystery of East Asia.
