Alchemy can turn base metal into gold, mend broken toys and buildings...and turn humans into monsters. A brilliantly realized manga of miltary politics, human experimentation, religious and cultural conflict, and unbridled hubris -- all wrapped around the tale of two young brothers who made a terrible mistake out of grief and are struggling to put things right. -- Library Staff Review (Hillary D.).
