By Kevin Andrew Murphy

In the revolution-torn nation of Galt, not even a war hero is above suspicion. After being blown halfway to bits, former grenadier Norret Gantier returns home, only to find that those he knew have all been executed for treason or changed by the weight of years. One thing remains, however: the boarding house that was once the manor of Madame Devore, the town's duchess and head alchemist, before she fled the revolution. Yet perhaps the manor isn't as abandoned as the townsfolk think. As Norret struggles to rebuild his shattered life, he's drawn steadily down into an alchemical mystery that will take all his esoteric knowledge to solve. But can he find the duchess's lost legacy before the local officials make him a date with the guillotine?

From fan-favorite author and alchemical scholar Kevin Andrew Murphy comes a fantastical mystery set in the award-winning world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

This was a fun story! I enjoyed how much time passed over the course of the story. It was important that the narrative take place, but it could occur over a long period of time.

Will Kevin be writing more for the Pathfinder Tales?

I think it's safe to say that you'll see Kevin around these parts again. In the meantime, you can check out some of the amazing holiday fan poetry he's done for us over here and here!

Reviewed!! This is one of my favorite Tales from the Web Fiction.

I am slowly working my through the backlog of reviews that I want to write. I still need to get Death's Heretic reviewed, along with a whole slug of fiction that I picked up during the "Buy 3 get 1 Free" sale.

I really enjoy the characterization of this story, and the depth of alchemist lore that the author goes into. Makes me want to play the class.

It's taking all the Willpower I possess to finish this story without making an alchemist before the end.
