The Seeking Serum by Frank L. Cole

The Seeking Serum (Potion Masters, #3)The Seeking Serum by Frank L. Cole
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Received to review
Genre: Middle-Grade Fantasy

Book Description:  Mezzarix has stolen the Vessel, the source of power for all potion masters, and is preparing to launch his final attack on the potion-making community—which includes his own family.

Gordy and his family have gone into hiding, but when his mom uncovers some new information, she takes Gordy into the underground network known as the Swigs, a haven for renegade potion masters and black-market potions, to secure support in the fight against Mezzarix. But when Scourges, rebel potion makers acting on orders from Mezzarix, attack the Swigs, Gordy barely escapes with his life and is forced to leave his family behind.

As the fight intensifies between B.R.E.W. and the Scourges, it falls to Gordy and his friends—Max, Sasha, and Adilene—to locate Mezzarix's hidden headquarters, retrieve the Vessel, save the world, and unite the potion-making community.

The world of Potion Masters is full of fantasy and adventure as Gordy and his friends learn the power of friendship and loyalty, and to trust in their own individual talents.

My thoughts: The Seeking Serum is categorized as middle-grade fiction. I feel like it would appeal to anyone who loves a great adventure and lovable characters. This is the third book in a series. The whole series is well written and enjoyable. This book is the "icing on the cake."

Gordy has an amazing talent. He brews potions that can do some pretty incredible things. His talent is unprecedented for one so young. He comes from a family of potion masters, in fact, his grandfather is the evil mastermind who wants to take down the rules of the community and dominate the world.

The book is told from several points of view. Gordy, his friends, and his grandfather. I loved seeing each of their thoughts and struggles. It brought the characters to life for me. The fantasy elements of the story are fun! Some kids who have unique talents turn into heroes and save the day from evil. It is sure to be a hit with young readers.

This is a great conclusion to the trilogy. Make sure to read the books in order. It has been a while since I read the first two books and it took me a bit to get back into the world that Frank L. Cole created.
