Tour Schedule

The Alchemists Academy Book 1: Stones to Ashes by Kailin Gow

What do you learn the Academy? Wirt asks. Magic? The responsibility to use your powers responsibly? Uh...something like that, his roommate Spencer said. More like how to rule worlds. Wirt, is used to being shuffled from foster home to foster home, adopting a devil-may-care attitude toward the world along the way. Now he s in a school he can t escape, learning to develop his latent magical abilities, for what use, he doesn't save his world or to destroy it...


The Alchemists Academy Book 2: Elemental Explosions by Kailin Gow

A new student has entered The Alchemists Academy, and he brings with him an explosive power that threatens the Academy and the legend of Merlin. Wirt thought he was the only bad boy at the Academy, but he was wrong. Not only is Roland Black worse than Wirt, but a new teacher had replaced one of their beloved teachers, and she has more planned for Wirt and his friends than just lesson plans. Alana, his crush has grown prettier, and now he is rivals for her attention with not only his best friend Spencer, but newcomer Roland, as well. On top of that, it is their second year, and the year where all the students must pass a test to move on to the Elite Class at the Academy. The Elite Class is the only class in the third year at the Academy, and the students who fail will be sent home, others will face something even deadlier.



“Are things not going well with you and Alana?” Wirt asked.

“There is no ‘me and Alana’.”

That made Wirt’s eyes widen. They had certainly seemed very friendly at the end of last year. So friendly, in fact, that Wirt’s hopes in that direction had withered and died, leaving him feeling empty for days afterwards. All that, and they weren’t actually together?

“What happened?” Wirt demanded.

“We dated for a bit over the summer,” Spencer admitted. “We saw each other every day, with her mother working as my father’s cook, and we were finally happy to admit that it wasn’t just being friendly. Then my father…”

“Your father did exactly the same thing as he did with the room,” Wirt guessed. “He said that you didn’t need the distraction going into an important year at school, and he told you to break it off.”

Spencer nodded.



“You’re an idiot.”

“You think I don’t know that?” Spencer shot back, the anger clear in his voice. “I knew that what Father really meant was that he didn’t want me having a relationship with his cook’s daughter, and I wanted to tell him no, but you haven’t tried standing up to him, Wirt. He could make things very difficult.”

“For you.”

“For me and for Alana,” Spencer countered. “He has more than enough influence at the school to cause problems for her, even if she is friends with Priscilla.”
