Twelve-year-old Gordy Stitser is one of the few people who knows the truth about the secret society of potion masters, because not only is Gordy’s mom on the Board of Ruling Elixirists Worldwide (B.R.E.W.), but she has also been training Gordy in the art of potion-making.
Gordy is a natural, and every day he sneaks down to the basement lab to invent new potions using exotic ingredients like fire ant eggs, porcupine quills, and Bosnian tickling juice.
One afternoon, Gordy receives a mysterious package containing an extremely rare potion known as “The Eternity Elixir.” In the right hands, the Elixir continues to protect society. But in the wrong hands, it could destroy the world as we know it.
Now, sinister potion masters are on the hunt to steal the Eternity Elixir. It’s up to Gordy, his parents, and his best friends, Max and Adeline, to prevent an all-out potion war.
So I am still reading this book at the moment as as I write this review I know I will be finishing it tonight, if not tomorrow morning. I wasn’t feeling all that well and wasn’t able to finish but I promised a post and I will update it when I am done.
I want to start out saying this is going to be a great start to a fun series. I honestly LOVE Gordy. He is such a fun character and the world he lives in is so much fun. Well it’s actually our world but he can make potions. How awesome is that? I want to make potions. The beginning of the book had me laughing at a potion that didn’t turn out so good. It was really funny and the mom’s reaction was great. I also love that Gordy is super smart and it doesn’t take him very long to figure things out. The only issue I am having is with the secondary characters, like his siblings and friends. They don’t seem like they add anything to the story however, I am not done yet so that might actually change but at this point I sort of don’t think they advance the story any. There are some secondary characters that I like and do add substance especially Mezzarix, he might be evil but I sort of like him.
Overall, I am enjoy thing this book so far and really think this will be a great series, I am not even finished and I already am looking forward to the next adventure. Totally recommend for all ages, this is a fun series, I can’t wait to read more of.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my review.
Have a great day and Happy Reading!
