The Scarlet Alchemist 

Claire Stetzer at Inkyard Press has acquired, in an exclusive submission, The Scarlet Alchemist by Kylie Lee Baker (The Keeper of Night), a dark YA fantasy duology set in an alternate Tang Dynasty China, where alchemy has led to income inequality as the rich eat gold to achieve eternal youth, and a poor biracial girl with the ability to raise the dead gets caught up in the dangerous political games of the royal family.


Publication is scheduled for fall 2023; Mary C. Moore at Kimberley Cameron & Associates brokered the two-book deal for world English rights.
