Hey everyone just wanted to get some feedback on this query before I sent it out to agents! Please let me know what you think!
As the youngest instated Alchemist in the history of the Brewer’s Guild, Solarra Vitallis has some big expectations to fill and could very well be the only person capable of restoring freedom to her homeland of Rodvania, but thanks to her deadbeat father who’s recently sailed off with half the nation’s slave population, the whole of the nobility has been turned against her. Broke, hated, and with a small army of money hungry bounty hunters hot on her trail, Solarra quickly realizes that things might not be as simple as she anticipated.
As heir to the formerly richest slave-owning family in Rodvania, it’s hardly a surprise when Solarra arrives at the infamous Citadel for her first assignment and expects the world to bow to her every whim. While meeting with the Chancellor on official guild business, Solarra is armed with her own secret agenda; to recruit powerful allies to help her overthrow the guilds Brewmaster, a calculating overlord who rules Rodvania from the shadows with an iron fist. Oh, her biggest secret? She cheated on the State Alchemist Exams, but no biggie, right?
When Solarra winds up getting stuck with world renowned Huntsman, Thane Grimheart, a man who hardly embodies the legendary monster hunter that the stories paint him to be, she must undertake the most dangerous task of her life: to hunt down the Horror of Skorengard, a nameless bloodthirsty creature that stalks a vast and untamed northern wilderness. With a satchel full of potions, an arsenal of secrets, and a kick em in the ass attitude, Solarra eagerly sets out to kill this Horror and return for her next assignment, but little does she know that the path laid out before her is unlike any she’s ever dared dream of.
The Huntsman and the Alchemist: The Horror of Skorengard is a complete 130,000 word adult epic fantasy novel that would appeal to fans of Andrzej Sapkowski’s The Witcher and George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones.
