The Alchemist's Cat (The Deptford Histories, Book 1) ebook

by Robin Jarvis


The Alchemist's Cat is the prequel to The Dark Portal, and is also the beginning to the Deptford Mice Trilogy. The Alchemist's Cat was very exciting! (Of course these are just my thoughts on the book).

The Alchemist's Cat is the prequel to The Dark Portal, and is also the beginning to the Deptford Mice Trilogy. This book of horror keeps its suspense, a book that keeps you reading and wanting more. Robin Jarvis has done a terrific job with this prequel. I think that the history made it even better, because you close the book with just a little more knowledge than you had before (which obviously that other kid doesn't appreciate history). Well, anyway, I think you should read this book.

On an outing to my local bookstore a while ago, I came across a couple of books in the 'bargain bin', upon which the cover art (I know, "don't judge a book.....")enchanted me. I bought them, and immediately came here to find the rest (turned out to be one book each from 2 related trilogies). I found the remaining 4, all marked down as well, hardcover, and in new condition, on Amazon. This is the first book of the second trilogy, which gives background to the other. I am loving these books! It is a rather dark storyline, but the characters (cats, rats, squirrels, etc.) are vivid and the writing pulls you in. This series (as well as the Deptford Mice Trilogy) is perfect for summer, when you want to read something that will transport you.

I think that this is a really good book, and I, obviously, do not agree with the kid who called it a "snoozefest"!! The Alchemist's Cat was very exciting! (Of course these are just my thoughts on the book). I think that the history made it even better, because you close the book with just a little more knowledge than you had before (which obviously that other kid doesn't appreciate history). Well, anyway, I think you should read this book. I also urge you to read the rest of the books in the Deptford Mice Trilogy, as they are very exciting and enlightening.

HAPPY READING!!!:)

I really liked this book and thought it was a good start to the series. This book got me interested in the rest of the books in The Deptford Mice Trilogy. I think that it is a good book for anyone who wants to read a great book with adventure, excitement, mystery, history, misery, and a little touch of horror (which obviously is exactly what I was looking for). I proudly give this book 5 stars and urge you to read it see what you think of it as well.

I got this book because I liked the Deptford Mice books. But this one was incredibly boring, like reading a textbook for history class. With the exception of the very beginning, the very end, and one or two places in the middle, this book was a snoozefest. Take my advice and get the other Deptford Mice stories: (The Dark Portal, Crystal Prison, Final Reckoning) and ignore this one, because you can do without it.

I read this book when I was 12 years old (which was over ten years ago) and I can still remember the plot line of this book. It was an amazing read, interesting, exciting, mystical and I disagree with the reviewers who said that it was boring and like a text-book. It certainly was not!!

I am so excited to see the other books in the series available to read and will be buying them soon.

This book was very, very, interesting. It wasn't quite the same as the rest of the books in the series. The rest of the series had more magic, while this one had more history and realistic adventures, but it still had plenty of magic in it. I thought it was well thought out and I was a little more fond of the charicters in this book then the ones in the others, probably because I like human charicters better then animals.

I recommend this book and all the others in the Deptford Mice Trilogy because it is a truly amazing series!
Unlike the Deptford mice stories, this book is incredibly boring. I couldn't make it through the dull middle, and the only parts I found remotely interesting was the beginning and the end. The author spends way too much time on the creepy setting and the characters aren't sketched out very well. The whole thing isn't very well explained, its as if it needs a prequal to tell you how Dr. Spittle and the others actually ended up where tehy were at the beginning. You don't have to read this one to read the Deptford mice books, so I'd suggest reading those instead, and skipping this one.
