Zoella Book Club title Summer 16 | July 2015 Book of the Month When the princess of Nova accidentally bewitches herself with an illegally brewed love potion, resulting in the biggest self-crush since Narcissus, there’s an urgent need for an antidote. The kingdom’s alchemists are sent out on the dangerous task of gathering ingredients. Amongst them is Sam, grand-daughter of one of the most talented alchemists ever but a definite underdog here, especially compared to the team from the giant ZoraAster Corporation. There’s nothing like a quest to set spirits soaring, and this has extra ingredients to add to the excitement: magical settings, an on-off romance for Sam with Zain, gorgeous son of ZoraAster’s chief executive, and a deadly rival in the shape of the King’s evil sister. Princess Evelyn could be one of those Made In Chelsea girls, while Sam is definitely one of us. Great fun, and perfect summer reading! ~ Andrea Reece
The second in the series comes August 16 and is called The Potion Diaries: Royal Tour.
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 ZoroAster 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.
