The alchemical revolution has began...

And sheriff Tiberius Tibbetts is far from happy about it!

When trailing a mysterious industrialist who has been secretly mass-producing magical potions, Tiberius and his new ally John St. Cloud fall into a dangerous web of murder, magic, and menace.

To come out on top, Tiberius not only must deal with the current danger in every corner, but also with the unsolved ghosts of his past.

Will he succeed in stopping the alchemists before they claim their power all across the West...and beyond?
