Two years have passed since Janie Scott last saw Benjamin Burrows, the mysterious apothecary's son who stole her heart. On the other side of the world, Benjamin and his father are treating the sick and wounded in the war-torn jungles of Vietnam. But Benjamin has been experimenting with a new magical formula that allows him to communicate with Janie across the globe. When Benjamin discovers that she's in trouble, he calls on their friend Pip for help. The three friends are thrown into a desperate chase around the world to find one another, while unraveling the mystery of what threatens them all.
The Apprentices by is a great book! My favourite part about this book is that there is a lot of alchemy and magic! I also like that the characters that are in 's first book The Apothecary are still the main characters in the second book.
One thing that I didn't like about the book was that there were a couple chapters where not much happened.
All in all, The Apprentices by is a great book!
