I saw... eyes that were burning like fire.
The origin of the Elric Brothers! Once, Edward and Alphonse Elric were willing to do anything to become alchemists. But when they tried to use their newfound skills to resurrect their dead mother, they broke a taboo and encountered something more terrifying than death itself. Now, hardened by years of military training, Edward and Alphonse have returned to the woman who first taught them alchemy...but can she help them, or even forgive them?
(Synopsis taken from Goodreads)
I think this is, and will remain to be, my favorite book in this series. I just absolutely love how we finally get the full history on Ed and Al.
It is a beautifully tragic story, and, though it had bothered me that I needed to wait 6 books to get this information, I think it was perfect.
Overall, I completely recommend this series.
