'Alchemist' is the first of a four-part series set between Edinburgh in Scotland and the fictional world of Santerria, and acts as the introduction to the fantasy series: 'The Four Corners of Santerria'. Terry and her uncle are both Alchemists, a subterranean race from Santerria, with metal in their blood...and Connor, a Pyrovite - a species capable of creating fire at will. Back home on Santerria the Alchemists and Pyrovites make up two of the four elemental races, co-existing alongside the Water Elementals and the now extinct Phantoms (wind). They share their world with a fifth race, the Acara; the refugees of the stars.
