Archie Greene and the Alchemists’ Curse
Archie’s cousin, Thistle, is about to start his apprenticeship at the Museum of Magical Miscellany. But when it comes to his initiation, the firemark that burns into Thistle’s hand is a strange one, and Archie and Bramble are given it too.
The Golden Circle is the mark of an ancient alchemist’s club and when Archie and his cousins learn about a curse that threatens their beloved museum, they have no choice but to start their own alchemist’s club, and face the darkest kind of magic.
‘It kept me guessing and I wanted to keep reading it 10/10.’

“This is an amazing book about a boy who has just turned 12. One day he receives a book in the post with a set of special instructions.
He has to travel to Oxford where he discovers the the magical side of his family he never knew he had. I loved this book as it was packed with magic and it was never boring. I rate this book 10 out of 10 and I am sure everyone else would too.
The language is quite simple but some of the magical creatures names are hard to pronounce. I would highly recommend this book to both boys and girls – especially those who enjoyed ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Charlie Bone’ books. I think children aged 7 – 10 would enjoy reading this book. I am looking forward to reading more adventures about Archie Green.”

‘A book about magical flying books! I loved this book, such a great idea for a story. Archie is a 12 year old boy with different coloured eyes, and when he uncovers a family secret his adventures begin. Young ‘Harry Potter’ fans would love this book.
