Walter  Moers - The Alchemaster


Imaginative pyrotechnics

Set in Rottmark – the city where 'all that's well is ill, and all that's ill is well' – this culinary fairy tale tells the story of the battle between Echo, the enormously talented kritty, and Succubius Icepin, Rottmark's terrifying alchemaster. Icepin, who's something like the bastard son of Dr Faustus and Mephisto, is obsessed with the idea of using alchemy to become master over life and death – and to do that, the thing he needs most is Echo's body fat. Echo is half-starved, so has no other choice but to enter into a devilish pact with the alchemaster…

"Moers' creative mind is like J.K Rowling on ecstasy."
