The Transparency Tonic (Potion Masters, #2)
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.

This review will be spoiler free! However, there are likely to be spoilers for the first book in the Potion Masters series so if you haven't read it yet (WHY?????) now is the time to back away and snag yourself a copy. Seriously, the Potion Masters series is can't-miss-reading material and one of the best middle grade novels in recent memory. I'm having so much fun with these books! It's really no secret that I practically (see: absolutely) devoured the first installment to Frank L. Cole's dazzling Potion Masters series late last year. It should come as no shock to you that I found myself highly anticipating the second installment, The Transparency Tonic, and squealed when I reading it no less than seventeen times. Once again, Cole hooks his readers within the first few pages and weaves an incredibly fun read for all ages. The Transparency Tonic takes place nine months after the events of the previous installment and a lot has changed since then. Gordy and his best friends, Max and Adilene, have grown comfortable in the fact that they defeated the villainess Esmeralda and saved B.R.E.W. and the Elixirists main source of power: the Vessel. But when a new threat arises, and Gordy begins experiencing peculiar moments, it becomes apparent that something is brewing--and it's not good. First of all: I loved catching up with the gang! Gordy, Max and Adilene are just as brilliant as usual. Once the action begins, the stakes for B.R.E.W. (the Board of Ruling Elixirists Worldwide) are even higher in The Transparency Tonic. Armed with familiar friends and foes, and new faces sprinkled in, readers are thrown right into the thick of it pretty much from the start. Throughout the book, we learn several new facts about B.R.E.W. and the perils that may lay ahead for the organization, should the Dark Elixirists manage to take control over life as Gordy knows it.Frank L. Cole's imagination knows no bounds as he continues to expand the world of B.R.E.W. and take readers on new adventures. The battle between good vs. evil continues to extend in the Potion Masters world and it will leave readers breathless before they can say Fusion Potion. Each page is cleverly crafted with action, humor, science and more. This winning combination makes The Transparency Tonic impossible to put down. One thing's certain: Cole is only just getting started with Gordy's adventures, and I cannot wait to see what more is in store for the Potion Masters.

The first thing that you need to do though is read the first one! Potion Masters: The Eternity Elixir was also great! You’re not going to understand this one without having read that one though.The main character in this book is Gordy. He’s in eighth grade. And he can make crazy potions that do all sorts of things. One of my favorites is the one that makes the ground turn to quicksand, sucking whoever is on top in and freezing them in the earth in a matter of seconds. That potion would have come in handy many times over the years!Gordy has all kinds of crazy things happen to him in this one. That’s part of what makes this series so much fun! Some of his problems come from bad guys, but some of the problems are his own making. Gordy is left to figure out a lot of things on his own, making him a character that a lot of boys can learn from and emulate in their own lives.I liked that this book also has parts where the reader can see though the eyes of other characters. The reader grows to learn Adilene a little bit better because of that. I love that Adilene is able to help Gordy when he needs it the most.And the reader even gets to see things through the bad guys eyes for part of it! That’s always fun too. It’s fun to be able to yell at characters not to do things, if you know in time what they shouldn’t do. This book though, the reader didn’t know exactly what was going to be happening. Making the whole thing so much fun!If you’ve got a middle grade boy or girl, they’re going to love this one. It’s really well done and perfect for that age!

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.

    I read this one with my 8yo twins and we all enjoyed it. It’s the second in a series, and I’d suggest reading the first book first.

I’m not sure how many more books there will be, but there’s at least one more, and we’re looking forward to reading it.This series takes middle-grade readers into the potion-making community, a group of talented elixirists and drams (elixirists-in-training) hidden within a normal contemporary world. There are the good potion-makers, organized and governed by B.R.E.W., some downright evil scourges, and a group that’s kind of in-between—not necessarily evil, but not necessarily lawful either. This book expands on the world-building from book one and adds in a host of intriguing characters. Gordy, the main character, is a dram, and a really good one. I enjoyed watching his progress as he learned and developed his skills. (I think the blind-batching parts were my favorites.) Gordy’s grandpa, Mezzarix, is also a talented elixirist, but he’s working to destroy B.R.E.W. When he escapes from his exile in Greenland, the entire potion community is at risk. And since potions are the basis for much of the world’s technology, that could be very bad for everyone, even for normal people. Side note: (view spoiler)[I really enjoyed Mezzarix as a villain. I was happy to see the book end with him having the upper hand. It leaves open some awesome possibilities for book three. (hide spoiler)] Complicating everything is Mrs. Brexil, the new head of B.R.E.W. She’s not afraid of cruel and unusual punishment, she butts heads with Gordy’s mom, and Gordy’s skill makes her nervous.This book isn’t actually released yet. The author hosted a potion-naming contest on his Facebook page, and I told my kids to suggest a few. One of theirs won, and we got a signed ARC.

Because of his potion-mixing skills, Gordy is working on becoming an Elixirist with the help of his two best friends, Max and Adilene.

(Board of Ruling Elixirists Worldwide). Because of his potion-mixing skills, Gordy is working on becoming an Elixirist with the help of his two best friends, Max and Adilene. While concocting his potions, Gordy goes into a hypnotic state or “Blind Batching” and unknowingly creates some destructive brews. Because of this, Gordy’s mother loses her job at B.R.E.W. and it’s Chamber President eventually puts a warrant out for Gordy’s arrest. Cole’s second book in the Potion Master’s series is a thrilling read full of dilemmas and betrayals, but it is also a story about the power of consequences. All Gordy wants to do is hone his natural potion-making skills to become a master Elixirist. While trying to impress the snotty daughter of the new Chamber President by Blind Batching, his actions lead to disastrous consequences. Like many who are naturally gifted, Gordy’s decision to Blind Batch is two fold: to test his limits and gain acceptance from others. Even though Gordy is confident in his skills, it doesn’t mean he’s confident emotionally. Gordy’s closest friendships get sorely tested as he rises too quickly from exploiting his talents. Luckily, Gordy doesn’t fall too far from grace because the consequences of his actions directly affect his family. His unshakeable love for them and his friends’ loyalty help Gordy realign his priorities for using his gifts. This well-written and well-developed book will have readers anxiously anticipating Cole’s next book in his Potion Masters’ series.

Regardless of whether they but it or not, my recommendation stands. I sincerely hope they do buy an audiobook copy as I often enjoy more audiobooks than physical copies these days. Gordy's prowess as an elixirist increases in this book, in part because he can decipher which ingredients are in a potion. There's obviously more going on as he begins to blind batch concoctions which should be beyond him. His abilities earn the attention of the chamber president at B.R.E.W., and not for any good outcomes.Full of fun narrative and engaging ideas this book in a fun addition to the series.

All questioning, lacking self confidence, leading to actions that don't really sound advisable.This book opens up the whole potions Community into a much wider world, full of all kinds of populations that we hadn't known about earlier, and brings in more adult characters too, that all have various motivations, some of them very nefarious.The climax was amazing, and the ending was surprising. I loved it. What a ride.

    Because Gordy's powers are not fully understood and he cannot fully control them, Gordy, Max, and Adilene face multiple dilemmas. Numerous betrayals and love of friends and family force them to make choices that ultimately have fairly severe consequences. The magic and unexpected plot twists made this an enjoyable, fun book to read. I received this book as part of the Goodreads Giveaway program.
