In a nutshell: another fast-paced story, and thrilling conclusion to a magical series.
Archie Greene, apprentice at the world’s most magical museum and descendant of the Flame Keepers of Alexandria is back, in the third and final book in this popular series. In this adventure he and his fellow Alchemists’ Club members, Bramble and Thistle, have a particularly dangerous challenge: the Dark Flame is rising and stopping it means contact with Archie’s enemy, Fabian Grey. Once again, this is a satisfying mix of magic, challenges and friendship, and there are lots of secrets waiting to be discovered. If you’re new to the series, there’s just enough information to fill you in on the background, but better – and a treat – to start at the beginning and work through to the end.
