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.

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. . . . Gordy’s adventure is a memorable one. Fans of the archetypal hero’s journey will keep turning pages.School Library Journal


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. . . . 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.Kirkus Reviews


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.Booklist
