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.
I knew I would love this book and I did. I have enjoyed every book I read from this author. Frank's writing is very clever and extremely creative and he has proved time and again how talented he is, especially with this book. I can tell by his writing that he has a fantastic sense of humor. I loved the plot of this book and the characters were awesome. The potions and terms used were inventive and highly imaginative. There are many enjoyable twists and turns and fun little seeds of hints that are planted throughout that lead to a great adventure. I loved Gordy. I love smart, creative kids and he definitely fits that bill. All of the characters are so fun and very well written.
5 out of 5 stars. I can not wait for the next book!
