Christopher Rowe, apprentice to Master Apothecary Benedict Blackthorn, is learning all his master's secrets-like how to decipher complex codes and puzzles, and how to transform simple ingredients into powerful medicines, potions, and weapons. Christopher's beloved master guides him with a firm, steady hand-a confidence even more vital as Christopher learns of a mysterious cult preying on London's apothecaries. The murders grow closer and closer to Blackthorn's shop...until Christopher is torn from his home with only a cryptic message and a warning from his master: "Tell no one what I've given you." Aided by his best friend, Tom, Christopher must race to decipher his master's message-and follow a trail of deceit toward an unearthly secret with the power to tear the world apart.

An excellent read for any young reader who enjoyed Harry Potter or The Lightning Thief. Christopher Rowe is an apprentice to a well-known London apothecary during the early 1600's. Puzzles, ciphers and many clues are there to help Christopher solve mystery, along with his faithful friend, Tom. There will be a sequel and I'm really looking forward to it!
