Overview

An enchanting and gripping adventure with characters you'll never forget. Jenny Swift, a young teenager, is taken against her will to become the apprentice of a famous alchemist. What awaits her is a strange world of plotting, murder, robbery,and betrayal. But she also finds friendship, courage and abilities within her she never dreamed she possessed.

Jenny’s mother was a healer from the East who has taught her well and from whom she inherits her exotic looks. But this difference means that she faces suspicion and distrust as she is unwittingly drawn into a plot to throw the world into chaos.

Brimstone is a compelling adventure story crafted around mystery and danger. With its indomitable, talented heroine, courageous and steadfast heroes and treacherous, merciless villains, it's a book readers will find hard to put down until the very last page has been turned.

The first book in the Earth, Air, Fire and Water series.

For young adult readers, and adults.

Reviews
Brimstone's uniqueness comes from combining the very best fantasy elements with relateable real-life issues; including racism, poverty, alternate culture, friendship, and most poigniently, the loss and duty of growing up...
This was a book that left me constantly wanting more!
Elly Pugh, 5 star review The Book Depository

Perfect for the young adult audience for which it is written.
Ngaire Atmore, NZ Herlad on Sunday

I enjoyed Brimstone very much, right from page one I was hooked and Mr.Skinner's writing skills managed to keep my interest, and the moments I was unable to read, I was thinking about it.
Tanya, Independent Book Reviews

Exceptional youth adventure and translates into adult reading simply because it is so well written, plot is excellent, character development is excellent, twists and turns are good. Want to read more from this author.

Brimstone is in many ways the quintessential adventure book; danger, mystery and magic being the key ingredients.
Maxine Hunt, reader

A wonderfully refreshing and original read ... Right from the first page I have been engrossed in Brimstone.
Hayley Sellick, reader

Wow! ... I will definitely be reccomending this book to every one I meet, but they'll have to get their own because this one is mine, to read again and again.
Emma Hawkins, reader

Gripping. Enchanting. Unique.

Meet the Author

I've been many things in my life but they were all just slices of time layered on the one foundation - a writer. Sometimes you forget what you are and some times you just think I'll get around to it when the rain stops. Be careful about that; there are more rainy days than you think there will be when you're young.Now all I do is write - and spend more time than I ever thought I would letting people know about the books I write. These days, it seems to come with the job but I find I do really like it when people get in touch with me and ask me things or say thank you. It's great.Some people ask if I use all the things I've been in my writing. I don't think I've written enough yet to have used even a small part of what's happened in my life. I've been fortunate to live in wonderful places: Boston, Melbourne, London, Zurich. Great things have happened in all those places.But you don't really want to know about me. The best part of me is what I write. So I'll stop here and let you get back to reading my books. If you do want to ask more, just get in touch.
