Alchymist

(2004)
(Scrutator)
(The third book in the Well of Echoes series)
A novel by

 
The next book in Ian Irvine's internationally bestselling Three Worlds epic fantasy sequence (published in the UK as Alchymist).

The node has failed, rendering humanity's battle clankers and the Aachim's constructs useless. The battle has been lost. Now hordes of alien lyrinx are swarming out of the tar pits of Snizort, intending to fall upon the survivors and destroy them to the last man.

Tiaan is held prisoner by a vengeful Vithis, who is determined to extract her geomantic secrets at any cost. For his failings, Nish has been cast out and branded a traitor while Irisis, accused of high treason, has been forced to flee for her life.

The fate of humanity is dependent on the survival of one wily old man, Scrutator Xervish Flydd. But Flydd has been blamed for the defeat at Snizort. His enemy, the vicious Chief Scrutator Ghorr, has expelled Flydd from the Council and stripped him of all rights. Now Flydd is condemned to die a brutish death as a slave, hauling ironclad clankers out of the battlefield mire until his heart bursts under the strain.

'It is the most engrossing book I've read in years, the lucid prose unfolding an action-and-suspense storyline featuring wonderfully credible characters.' Van Ikin, Sydney Morning Herald.

"A page-turner of the highest order ... Arguably the most inventive fantasy author to emerge in recent years, Irvine can now consider himself comfortably ranked next to the works of Robert Jordan and David Eddings and, more appropriately, the mighty Anne McCaffrey. Formidable!" SFX.
