From the publishers that brought us the incredible FableHaven series by Brandon Mull comes a new YA series about a young potion master caught between the forces of good and evil. Gordy Stitser has many natural talents that are uncommon to most children, let alone elixirists. He is well advanced in his potion making skills, like his banished evil grandfather who is imprisoned in a cave in Greenland.
Gordy’s mother works for B.R.E.W. and is constantly traveling the world, teaching at conferences and selling products. Unbeknownst to him, that’s not what his mother really does. She is out trying to stop the bad guys from destroying the world.
When a mysterious package arrives from his Aunt Priss, trouble begins for the Stitser household. The bad guys arrive looking for the Eternity Elixir, and it’s up to Gordy to figure out on his own that these guys are not as nice or innocent as they proclaim, his father is under their spell, and he needs to keep them from getting the potion or risk the world falling apart.
This is a fun, new adventure for those looking for a new YA series to read. The beginning is a little slow as the author introduces the characters, but once the adventure really starts to take off, be prepared for an incredible ride.[I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
