9780099526322: The Alchemaster's Apprentice

The fourth book in the beloved Zamonia series by Overlook’s bestselling Walter Moers

The first three books set in Zamonia (the mythical land created by the genius of Moers, whose work has been compared to J. K. Rowling, Douglas Adams, and Shel Silverstein) have achieved raucous critical acclaim and created hundreds of thousands of die-hard fans everywhere. Now Moers returns with a fourth “relentlessly whimsical” fantasy (Library Journal).

When Echo the Crat’s mistress dies, he is compelled to sign a contract with Ghoolion the Alchemaster. This fateful document gives Ghoolion the right to kill Echo at the next full moon and render his fat, which he hopes to brew into an immortality potion. But Ghoolion has not reckoned with Echo’s talent for survival and his vast ability to make new friends.

About the Author:

Walter Moers is a writer, cartoonist, painter and sculptor. He is the creator of the comic strips The Little Asshole and Adolf and author of the cult bestsellers The 13 1/2 Lives of Captain Bluebear, Rumo, A Wild Ride Through The Night, and The City of Dreaming Books, all published by Overlook.

From Publishers Weekly:

Starred Review. Moers's elegantly written fourth stand-alone comic fantasy set in Zamonia (after 2008's The City of Dreaming Books) takes us to the city of Malaisea, where everyone is sick except for two characters: Echo, a Crat (a talking cat, more or less), and Ghoolion, an evil alchemist likely responsible for Malaisea's afflictions. Crat and alchemist cross paths when the starving Echo is offered a month of food, entertainment and alchemical secrets, after which Ghoolion will kill him to boil down his fat. Ghoolion proves a magically masterful chef, and Echo quickly becomes fascinated by Ghoolion's work, particularly the morphic meals that seem to transform Echo into different creatures. Secrets are revealed, old bodies unearthed and strange allies made in this entrancing tale of darkness, determined survival and incredibly luxurious cuisine. (Sept.)

Descrizione libro Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Malaisea, the unhealthiest town in the whole of Zamonia, is home to Echo the Crat, a multi-talented creature resembling a cat in appearance but capable of speaking any language under the sun, human or animal. When his mistress dies, Echo finds himself out on the street. Dying of starvation, he is compelled to sign a contract with Ghoolion the Alchemaster, Malaisea s evil alchemist-in-chief. This fateful document gives Ghoolion the right to kill Echo at the next full moon and render him down for his fat, with which he hopes to brew an alchemical concoction that will make him immortal. In return, he promises to regale the little Crat with the most exquisite gastronomic delicacies until his time is up. But Ghoolion has reckoned without Echo s talent for survival and his ability to make new friends. These include the Leathermice, the Cogitating Eggs, the Golden Squirrel, the Cooked Ghost, Theodore T. Theodore the one-eyed Tuwituwu, and, above all, Izanuela Anazazi, the last Uggly in Malaisea. Walter Moers s magnificent translation of Optimus Yarnspinner s novel introduces us to yet another of Zamonia s hotbeds of adventure: Malaisea, a place where sick is healthy, up is down, right is wrong, and Ghoolion the Alchemaster reigns supreme - until Echo crosses his path.
