Yup, you read that right. Stephenie Meyer is releasing her second adult novel in November!
‘The Chemist’ is a former secret agent who’s on the run from the government who thinks she knows too much…
Talk about different to ‘Twilight’! Or even ‘The Host’!
The protagonist’s name is being kept tightly under wraps, but we do have a synopsis from the publisher:
She used to work for the U.S. government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn’t even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning.
Now she rarely stays in the same place or uses the same name for long. They’ve killed the only other person she trusted, but something she knows still poses a threat. They want her dead, and soon.
When her former handler offers her a way out, she realizes it’s her only chance to erase the giant target on her back. But it means taking one last job for her ex-employers. To her horror, the information she acquires only makes her situation more dangerous.
Resolving to meet the threat head-on, she prepares for the toughest fight of her life but finds herself falling for a man who can only complicate her likelihood of survival. As she sees her choices being rapidly whittled down, she must apply her unique talents in ways she never dreamed of.
And not to make your brain completely explode, but there’s a cover too!
We don’t have a UK release date just yet, but ‘The Chemist’ will be published November 17th in the US.
