Middle-Grade Monday time! Today I am reviewing the first book in the Potion Master series, The Eternity Elixir.
Unfortunately, there are people out there who want to bring B.R.E.W. down, and when Gordy's Aunt Priss uncovers a diabolical plot, the whole family is brought in to help. While Gordy's mom is out of town, he receives the package from his Aunt and a mysterious potion within. The bad guys soon show up at his home and the battle begins.
Now it's up to Gordy, his parents, and his best friends, Max and Adeline, to prevent the all-out destruction of B.R.E.W and all their accomplishments from the last 300 years.
This was a delightful middle-grade read. It captured me from the beginning and I read it in one sitting. The characters are well developed and have their own quirks. In fact, Gordy's best friend Max is super annoying, lol.
I loved the comedic elements. I mean, the book starts off with Gordy as a giant blob of goo, the result of a misdone spell. There are potions that do strange things and a Grandfather who lives in exile with a skeleton as his only friend.
There are great themes, such as working hard and learning. Plus, there is a strong sense of family love. I recommend this book for ages 8 and up. 5 stars!
