    • Review also on jolasbookshelf.wordpressNazi Warlock Vampires? It may sound weird, but Alesha Escobar found a way to make it good. 'The Tower's Alchemist' quickly puts reader right in the middle of the action. There isn't a lot of information about our main character, Isabella, but it wasn't a problem for me. I like books in which we have to wait to uncover things slowly. The first book in a trilogy sets up a story for book 2 nicely and I will certainly pick it up.Thanks to Alesha Escobar for off [...]


    • Brought to you by OBS reviewer VerushkaWizards and Nazi Warlock Vampires during World War II; an unusual combination to say the least, but Alesha Escobar shows a deft hand in bringing this, the first of her trilogy to life.Isabella is a spy, an alchemist but more than anything she is tired when we meet her. Escobar takes great care to draw Isabella to help readers understand why she is tired of fighting the good fight, and readers will be able to understand where she is coming from. Escobar does [...]


    • I have to say that I'm not a spy novel person, nor do I keep up with things like Bond and what not. I don't purposefully set out to read them. And I don't particularly enjoy them.But what Alesha Escobar has done was create a vivid and intensely deep story that involves acts of espionage and magic. The story is wonderfully crafted with detailed and complex characters, vivid scenery and excellent twists. I definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys fantasy novels interlaced with reality and my [...]


    • Imagine, if you will, an alternate earth where magic exists, along with many other mystical creatures: vampires, wizards, alchemists. Now, try to envision a different time. World War 2, to be exact.In a time when a war is raging, and nothing is as it seems Isabella George finds herself in a tough situation. She’d grown tired of fighting, surviving and doing things that she’s been told were necessary for the well-being of many. Isabella George is a double agent (triple even) with the power of [...]


    • Argh! I have to wait now for the trilogy to be finished?! I really need to pay attention to publication dates!Got this when it was free on amazon. It took a little bit to get into the story. I felt like I was missing a whole lot of background information, as if there was a previous book introducing everyone. You quickly get by that though and pulled into the story. Isabella is a wizard, an american based in london, trained by the grey tower who oversees all wizards apparently, and works as a spy [...]


    • I have run into the idea of Hitler using occult magic before, so I was curious to see how Ms. Escobar handled the concept. I was very pleased with the result. The alternate reality presented in The Tower's Alchemist "feels" real. There is lots of action as our heroine Isabella is an undercover agent for British SOE and spends most of the book in occupied France. Isabella is a sympathetic character, in part because she is the narrator of the book. Her character has added depth from the mystery of [...]


    • I'll first say that I found it a little bit difficult to get into the story at first. Mainly because I felt like the pieces of background offered were a bit fragmented. However, it was definitely worth the read because once I started putting things together, I was able to connect better with Isabella as a character. I was gripped by the suspense and intrigued by this alternate-reality world where wizards are used on both sides. I thought that Isabella's desire for a normal life made her a sympat [...]


    • On the heels of the release of Dark Rift, the second book in this series, I have decided to write a much needed, and long overdue review of The Tower's Alchemist.First, I have 3 main things that initially interested me in the book, based upon the summary information:Nazi Warlock VampiresNazi Warlock Vampiresand just so the idea really hits you NAZI WARLOCK VAMPIRES.The only thing that could have attracted me more would have been the phrase Nazi Warlock Vampire Zombies!OK, now to the real review. [...]


    • Like most young women her age, Isabella would be happy to spend her time having fun with friends, reading brides’ magazines and planning a future with the man she loves. But the world is at war and the good guys need her for her unique and particular talents. She is an alchemist and can bend natural forces to her will. This makes her an ideal adversary to go up against Nazis who count wizards, vampires and terrifying Black Wolves among their numbers. Vowing to retire, the brave young woman tak [...]


    • Grabbed this as a sample reading, well worth my time. Solid story line with a kick ass heroine left off with a cliffhanger.


    • I personally loved this book the characters were great and I am looking forward to the next book ! Great blend of fantasy with historical fiction.


    • Escobar juggles a lot of interesting characters and wizards in this book (like wizards who drink other wizards' blood), but I do wish she had chosen a bit more dynamic scenes. It felt like there was a lot of sitting around and drinking wine and I was hoping for more action.



    • Note: This was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.Pros of this work:1. I really like the abstract look of the cover. For me, it adds to the mystery component.2. I will give lots of points for the attempt to put out something “out of the box”. Spies, wizards, World War II—so many different elements in one story. It does take a lot of gumption to try and have all of that within one work. That is worthy of some finger snaps.3. There are a few characters that I really like [...]


    • I haven’t read many historically based fiction but have enjoyed a few of them here and here so when The Tower’s Alchemist came along I was really curious to read how the author would manage pulling off mixing War World II with vampire-like wizards and Alchemist who are trying to take down Hitler. I was pleasantly surprised in many ways by this book.Isabella George is an undercover agent for the U.S. who send in only their most skilled and trusted Alchemists to not only hunt down information [...]



    • The Towers Alchemist, the first book in The Gray Tower trilogy is a historical fantasy set in World War II, albeit not the one taught in history class. Isabella George, the books protagonist, works as a spy for a clandestine agency known as the SOE based in England. Not only is Isabella a talented spy but also a skilled alchemist who once attended The Gray Tower, an institution for training those with various magical skills. In the world Isabella inhabits, dealing with wizards, Nazi wizard vampi [...]


    • This was quite the adventure! I'm not gonna say it was all a fun ride because there was genuine emotional turmoil included, but that just helped to make it such a good book. This world's use and acceptance of the reality of magic was seamless. It never seemed out of place for someone to be able to create symbols and unleash the elements. Isabella is a strong and intelligent woman, as someone in her line of work should be. Her tools of the trade mix traditional spy gear with magical gear. She has [...]


    • Honestly, I was intrigued by Escobar's book because it seemed so unlikely a read. That is, I could not fathom an author combining wizardry, alchemy, Nazi Germany, espionage, time travel and vampires into something intelligible. Boy, I was WRONG. And I've never enjoyed being wrong more. This book is not only intelligible, it is smart, sometimes funny, heartbreaking, thrilling, relate-able, and expertly paced.Escobar seems to effortless combine all of these interesting fantasy and sci-fi tropes wi [...]


    • On the surface, this is exactly the type of book I'd enjoy. I mean NAZI WARLOCK VAMPIRES, people! I was REALLY looking forward to meeting those guys. Unfortunately, while the Nazi warlock vampires pulled their weight (as much as Nazi warlock vampires do, that is), the book fell flat for me until the final confrontation at the end.In large part, I think this was due to the somewhat extraneous characters introduced who would stick around for a couple pages before disappearing. That part wouldn't h [...]


    • The Tower's Alchemist is a Fantasy novel which recreates the experience of the Second World War. Nazi warlock vampires are just one of the terrifying obstacles that lay in the path of Isabella George, part of the resistance fighting the Germans. As a trained alchemist, I found her to be a strong and resourceful character with a good measure of independence. She is a true heroine and provides a terrific role model for young girls.Isabella finds death and betrayal wherever she turns as she works w [...]


    • I love paranormal, I love spy stories (especially with tough female spies), and I love historical fiction. So when I saw the premise of this book, I expected to enjoy it. And I wasn't disappointed. This story was a fast-paced thrill ride set in a vividly described WWII Europe where Nazis employ vampires and the occult to help them carry out their ghastly agenda. Alchemist Isabella George, the main character, has had enough of the danger and uncertainty of the spy life. She plans to fulfill one l [...]


    • This was the first book of its kind for me. I don't typically find history interesting, because it's nonfiction. I prefer fiction, where I can read for escapism and entertainment, which is why I love fantasy. Combining warlocks with WWII--that was different. When I first read the synopsis, I was intrigued. Throw in some alchemy and occult magic, and I was in for something fresh and creative. The opening scene was action-packed, which was a good way to start it. After that, I had some difficulty [...]


    • "Now, for the rating! I hope you can tell that I think thi has been a greta book, and I dearly hope you’ll all read it. It’s $2.99 for Kindle – that’s like a packet of cigarettes you don’t need, or a coffee, or maybe a McDonald’s burger. I don’t believe there’s anybody who can’t afford a coffee for a good read and to help a great writer keep writing. I promise you won’t regret this book. I’m not a big reader of spy-books, but I really enjoyed this one.The Tower’s Alchemis [...]


    • This amazing novel focuses on an English spy working in France during WW2. However, the plot differs from other spy novels written about this period. The strong heroine uses alchemical symbols to aid her work. Spies on both sides of the war employ similar ploys. The heroine does her job as best she can despite the magical tricks others use against her, at the same time attempting to come to terms with co-workers who have died. The writing style pulled me right into the mind of Isabella, or Emeli [...]


    • "People in the normal world would call them vampires. To wizards, they were a nasty bunch of warlocks called Cruenti. Blood Magic was one of the most powerful forms of magic, and Cruenti fed off of other wizards. They drank wizards' blood to cast spells, enhance their own powersd to regenerate from gunshot wounds."



    • Being introduced to the main character of this book as she uses wits and alchemy to extract herself and her fellow saboteur from a bunch of Nazis brought back that tension-filled excitement of watching Wonder Woman on the big screen.And like Wonder Woman, Isabella is seeking out terrible chemical weapons that might change the course of WWII.Only Isabella is an Alchemist who uses symbols to manipulate elements, and also has a father hunted by the Tower that trained her because of his special powe [...]


    • Isabella is an alchemist, or student thereof, rather, employed by the US government in their fight against fighting against the Nazis. When she’s sent to France to bring back a wizard who has helped the Nazis unleash a deadly plague, she finds herself having to dodge bullets, rival wizards, and sinister vampires. On top of that, her father, who disappeared quite a while ago, leaving her with little clue as to why, sends her a cryptic letter urging her to steer clear of all of them. All she wan [...]


    • When I read the description of the book, I had one idea of what it would be like. I am so glad that I was wrong.This is the first book by Alesha Escobar that I have read and it will not be the last, I am so ready for the second book Dark Rift.I just finished reading this book and I felt that in some situations I was with her and helping her. I do like the characters in the book and of course there are some that I do not like.There is some mystery about the main character that she needs to unrave [...]
