Potion Masters 1 & 2 by Frank L. Cole, Book Review
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.
Potion Masters is a great book geared for children and middle graders! Honestly anything from about fourth grade on up, depending on their reading level. But kids will love this book! I mean it has this great character named Gordy who is a natural when it comes to potions. What kid doesn't like potions and magic? The book is paced well and the storyline is easy to follow. What kid wouldn't like this book? It has potions, family, villians and friends who set out to save the day!
It has been nine months since Gordy and his friends, Max and Adilene, Saved B.R.E.W. (the Board of Ruling Elixirists Worldwide) and the Vessel—the power source for the secret society of potion masters. Now, Gordy is starting the eighth grade, and has been trying new potion brewing techniques, but when he starts zoning out during practice, he knows something is wrong.
Gordy and his friends continue to work on their potions, but when Gordy chooses Max as his lab partner, Adilene starts to wonder if she still has a place with her old friends. She turns to a new friend, Cadence, who might know a way to help Adilene become a potion master on her own.
And in Greenland, Mezzarix has a chance to escape his Forbidden Zone—as long as he agrees to work with the mysterious Ms. Bimini and replicate an unusual solution known as “Silt.” It could be just the weapon Mezzarix needs to destroy B.R.E.W. forever.
With both B.R.E.W. and the Vessel in danger, and with the potion world in chaos, it’s up to Gordy, Max, and Adilene to rally the remaining Potion Masters before it’s too late.
Gordy and his friends are back again in the next installment of the Potion Masters series! This is the second book in the series and it is recommended that you read the first one to understand everything in the second one. Of course all is not as it should be and there is someone wanting to overthrow and destory B.R.E.W. and this time it is Gordy's own grandpa! Everyone is at risk and it is an exciting ride to go on as Gordy and his friends try to save the day! The Transparency Tonic is a great addition to the series and any middle grade reader would love to read it!
