The thrilling final instalment in Amy Alward's magical POTION DIARIES series!

'THIS SERIES IS MAGICAL' - Zoe Sugg aka Zoella
'INVENTIVE, ROMANTIC AND DOWNRIGHT DELIGHTFUL' - Sarah J. Maas, bestselling author of Throne of Glass


After finding her great-grandmother's potion diary, escaping the clutches of Emilia Thoth, saving her grandfather's memories AND become a Master Alchemist, surely it's time for Sam Kemi to have a good, long rest? And maybe, just maybe, a proper date with her boyfriend Zain?

But now that Princess Evelyn is married to the sinister Prince Stefan and showing symptoms of the Gergon illness, it looks as though Sam's adventures are just beginning. The GOOD news: there might be a cure for the virus spreading like wildfire through the city. The BAD news? It's buried in a remote village in a far-flung country next to an active volcano - and Sam's not the only one after it.

With a TV crew trailing Sam's every move and time fast running out, it looks like things are about to...

I thought  this may be a little old for me but how wrong was I?  Magic, volcanoes, romance and a invisible palace in the sky . You are introduced  to Princess Evelyn who had to marry prince Stefan because her magic was becoming too strong. Evelyn has a cough but not is all that it seems. Sam who in the last book saved the Princess has become Princess Evelyn's good friend. Can she save the princess in time by making a magical potion . I liked the relationships that were developing between the characters in the book ,especially between the magics and non magics.  I didn't put the book down .

I liked the fantasy side to it. My favourite bit was when she finds the spell book and it just gets better from there. The characters were really interesting and easy to like. It is a really good fictional book. Well worth a read.

The story was very good with exciting characters and a few twists. I think they girls my age would like this book but of course I would recommend reading the previous ones in the series first so you are aware of what is actually going on.

A fantasy book, I enjoyed it but it didn't blow me away.

lots of twists and turns. I prefer less "magical" books.

This book kept me on the edge of my seat, I was desperate for them to get that potion to cure the city.
Lots of twists and turns to keep my head spinning throughout this book.
Gets my heart racing with it's fast pace and the time running out to get that potion so desperately needed.

In the 3rd and final instalment of the Potion Diaries trilogy, we see our alchemist heroine Sam attempt to save Princess Evelyn from a mysterious virus and her new husband Stefan (who I found a seriously menacing villain). This book felt a lot darker to me than books one and two, somehow and I found it totally gripping as I read the book in a day. Alward builds the tension of the mystery perfectly and expertly lets the reader in on information throughout, and it`s really interesting to read a POV fully aware of the situation and the dangers and one who is totally in the dark (this was nailbiting material for me at points!). This book also continued to be a fabulous blend of contemporary and fantasy, with a wonderful heroine whose strength and determination I really admired. Finally, I loved the side characters, and even though I had predicted something quite different I liked the ending a lot. 4.5/5

I read this as a stand alone book and wasn’t sure I would enjoy it as I hadn’t read any of the other books in this series. As I got into the book, I wanted to read more and more, and ended up really enjoying it.
