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.
The Transparency Tonic is another wild, exciting ride from Frank Cole. I love Frank's books. They are always full of adventure, clever plots, characters you care about, and fun twists and turns. This book had all that, and more. I loved it! Gordy is one smart kid, with an amazing ability. I love Gordy's mom and Aunt Priss. There are so many exciting things that happen in this book. It is so fun and clever. The bad guys are inventive and there are characters that keep you guessing. The last few chapters of this book had me frantically turning pages to find out it was going to happen.
5 out of 5 stars. So many awesome twists and turns, I loved them all and a fantastic ending.
