Reviews of the Sacred Artifact by Caldric Blackwell:
“If you haven’t read the first book in the series (THE MISSING ALCHEMIST) by Caldric Blackwell, you could probably get away with reading this one, but it’s not purely a standalone. Anyway, assuming you have read the prequel, this book offers a lot of the same things I enjoyed in the first book – a story (best for ages ten and up) with lots of action, adventure, and alchemy. The main difference is the scope in this one. Everything feels bigger, from the plot to the characters’ backstories to the scope of the scenes. Recommended.”
“Caldric Blackwell is so creative with his story telling! It may be a children’s book but definitely contains underlying messages we can all relate to and learn from. Great book if you’re looking seekimg adventure. It’s an immerse universe you’ll enjoy reading about! 🙂”
