Archie Greene and the Raven’s Spell

The thrilling conclusion! Archie and the Alchemist’s Club have been rewriting the magical spells contained within books, but someone is drawing on their power for evil purposes.

The museum Elders confirm that their worst fears have come true – the Dark Flame is rising, and they can only stop it by uncovering Fabian Grey’s prophecy. Archie vows to help – but is he more close to the prophecy than he knows? And who is behind the mysterious notes for him, labelled F. G, and with the sign of a raven?

With traitors at the museum, and dark magic on the rise, it will be up to Archie to uncover his destiny, protect his friends, and save magic as he knows it.

“We love these books for family reading time! Thanks!”

“I have already read all parts of Archie Greene and am a gigantic fan of the books.”

Emily, from Germany

‘From coastal regional Australia:

“This is one of the best series of books I have ever read” – directly quoted from my 9 year old son, coincidentally named, Archie! He is a massive reader, so I just thought you should know because coming from him that is quite the compliment.’

Archie Greene and the Alchemist’s 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 alchemists’ 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 alchemists’ club, and face the darkest kind of magic.

“The children all LOVE Archie and have created some pictures as we have gone through the second book …

… they are looking forward to book number three!  Is it definitely the last one?  They wanted me to ask if they were being made into films.  I think the mark of a good book is that you can picture it in your head as if it were a film.  Archie definitely falls into that category!  We can just imagine the scene in Quills with the door ray and the box seats and motion potions!

I am always recommending the books to groups on FaceBook!”

“Yes yes yes! I read the first book to my daughter who LOVED it and then we discovered this one – book number two and it didn’t disappoint at all. It’s a really good alternative to Harry Potter if you have run out of Potter books. The plots are complex and intriguing and you have to concentrate, as the world Everest has created, has its own rules and language. I would urge you to read these in order – this is the second one. There is now also a third one – hooray. Mr Everest could we please have a fourth one, or is that being greedy?

Have been busy recommending these books to my Year 5 class. I’d say these would be suitable for 8yrs (possibly to be read to) up to 14yrs. Having said that I really enjoyed it too and it was a very long time ago that I was 14!”

“A book full of potions, magic spells, enchanted bookshelves, action and adventure. I couldn’t put it down. One of the best books I have read recently. Fantastic!”
