American Alchemy: Quicksilver
The prequel to Silver & Bone.
Jonathan Tucker is desperate to leave his town before snow blocks the roads. His hard work at the silver mine is paying off and he just needs one last push to achieve his goals.
When Jonathan volunteers to explore a haunted cavern deep inside the tunnels, he'll step into the domains of a magical beast made of priceless, liquid mercury. If only he could take some of the rare metal with him back to the surface, all of his problems would be solved...
But waking the creature's wrath will soon prove his biggest mistake. Will Jonathan escape its fury before the cursed mine becomes his tomb?
