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.

Read an Excerpt
“Ready to test out the Trapper Keeper?" Max asked Gordy scrunched his nose. “Trapper Keeper? Is that what you’re calling it? That’s a dumb name.” “It’s an awesome name!” Max said. Gordy stared down the target, a two-foot tall stuffed elephant, resting upon a cleared-off patch of ground ten yards away beneath a towering dogwood tree. For just a moment, Gordy felt a twinge of regret about what he was about to do. He had won the elephant at a fair several years ago and had kept it in his room ever since. Gordy used to cuddle the floppy thing whenever he freaked out about some odd noise he had heard in the house, and it was one of the only toys that had survived the fire. But he had entered the eighth grade, which meant there was no more room for stuffed animals. Covering the mouth of the flask with his thumb, Gordy shook the liquid aggressively. Lightning bolts cut through the thick goop. Max held his breath, though a high-pitched squeal escaped through his lips as Gordy chucked the bottle. Glass shattered at the elephant’s feet, and a dense cloud of smoke mushroomed up from the spot where the potion connected. Gordy shielded his eyes for just a second, but when he looked again, the stuffed elephant had vanished. “That’s what I’m talking about!” Max cheered. Gordy approached a fizzling circular patch of ground where the animal once stood. “Well, it won’t work exactly the same on a person, but I guess we can say Trapper Keeper is a success.” Gordy stepped on the dirt. It felt firm and solid, almost like stone. “The name’s warming up to you, isn’t it?” Max asked.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I am was so excited to be able to review this book. The first book was soooo good, and I knew it would only get better from there. Once upon a time there was a boy named Gordy who was an amazing potion maker. His mother saw something in him that both excited her and terrified her. She knew that her boy was special, and that might get him in trouble some day. He has already had to face trials, but this new adventure brings even more. Mezzarix, is Gordy's grandfather, and he is a master at potion making. He was so good, and so evil he was banished to Greenland for the safety of everyone. Gordy has only met him a few times, and has learned how dangerous he can be. Regardless, Gordy loves him. During this adventure we get to see a more advanced Gordy start doing things with potions his mother never imagined. Some good, and some good, but not too sure about. Gordy is a master at getting in trouble. Along with his two friends Max and Adilene. They seem to have an eye for where trouble is. There are people after Gordy and his family and they seem to be constantly on the look out for dangers. This story is full of adventure, intrigue, excitement, and friendship. Who knew family could be so dangerous, and wonderful at the same time. Follow Gordy and his friends as they face some unsavory people trying to bring him and his family down, along with B.R.E.W. People want to do away with B.R.E.W. and Gordy and his family are trying to keep that from happening. I enjoyed this story so much. I finished the book in a day. I love the setting, the story, and the world this book brings to me. I have to say that I felt like I was right along side Gordy during this whole story. I love it when a book can do this for me. It is a great book for middle schooler's, because Gordy is the same age. I know that my son would really enjoy this series, but I also think its great for people like me who love to dive into the middle grade genre once in a while. They are just so fun. Cole's writing is amazing, and brings a whole new world to life for you. I hope you take the opportunity to pick this book up. You won't regret it.
