Reviews

"This first installment in a new trilogy has all the hallmarks of a grand adventure: an unknown treasure, an all-powerful enemy, and a host of secrets revealed. Adeline and Wanda both present strong supporting cast members, and Gordy's adventure is a memorable one. Fans of the archetypal hero's journey will keep turning pages." -- (09/01/2017)
"While Gordy may be weak in training, he is strong in creativity, developing potions such as Rocket Vomit, Extra Limb, and Rat Magnet. His inventions are not exactly approved by B.R.E.W (that's the Board of Ruling Elixirists Worldwide to the uninitiated), but they are effective. Even with the help of two experienced Elixirists and a magically animated skeleton, it is unlikely they will succeed, but Gordy learns that a sense of humor, the willingness to be bold, and his love for his family and friends might win the day. Wackiness and suspense keep the pages turning. A glossary of potions highlights some of the incredible brews. A spectacular beginning."-- (09/18/2017)
"Gordy is the son of one of the world's most powerful Elixirists, though most of the world doesn't know such people exist. Lucky for Gordy, he exhibits the characteristics of a Dram--an apprentice of potions--and his best friends are in on the secret. Soon Gordy finds himself in possession of a package which some very evil Elixirists are out to retrieve. The Eternity Elixir is one of the most powerful potions ever, and it was created by Gordy's allegedly dead grandfather. Gordy will have to rely on his budding powers and unconventional brews, such as Rocket Vomit, to save the day. Pleasant addition of Gordy's parents as strong secondary characters (his dad hilariously finds himself cast in the role of the damsel in distress), and some background hints that the good guys aren't always so squeaky clean. Fast-paced and humorous, this should have easy appeal for fantasy fans."-- (11/01/2017)
"Most compelling when it explores how certain members of the potion community--including Gordy's nonconformist aunt and his exiled grandfather--have justifiable concerns about the B.R.E.W.'s policies and potential abuses of power...Uses realism effectively to establish a world of complicated family ties and devoted friendships."-- (03/16/2018)
