Blurb; (Contains: potions, princesses, peril, a magical quest and a serious crush)
When the Princess of Nova accidentally poisons herself with a love potion meant for her crush, she falls crown-over-heels in love with her own reflection. Oops. A nationwide hunt is called to find the cure, with competitors travelling the world for the rarest ingredients, deep in magical forests and frozen tundras, facing death at every turn. Enter Samantha Kemi – an ordinary girl with an extraordinary talent. Sam’s family were once the most respected alchemists in the kingdom, but they’ve fallen on hard times, and winning the hunt would save their reputation. But can Sam really compete with the dazzling powers of the Zoro Aster megapharma company? Just how close is Sam willing to get to Zain Aster, her dashing former classmate and enemy, in the meantime? And just to add to the pressure, this quest is ALL OVER social media. And the world news. No big deal, then.
My Review; This is book one in the Potion Diaries series and I absolutely loved it. A race against time to save the princess from her own love potion. A race to win with the cure, but not everyone is going to play fair in order to win. I devoured most of this and I cannot wait to see what lies ahead for this series.
Sam was determined to win and never gave up no matter how many times she got knocked down. Maybe in the end she just needed teamwork & to come together to win. A beautiful outcome and ending. I look forward to book two. Highly recommend. Magical. A well deserved four stars from me.
