The Apothecary’s Poison by C.J. Archer

• R E V I E W •

Damn it! There is only one book left to read before I have to wait for book five. I remember now why ultimately I don’t like to read series.

More mystery is added in this installment of the Glass and Steele series, right after another is washed away. I friggin love that. And while there were growth and revelation on Indie’s character, there is still a lot to learn, I feel. At this point, I’m not sure if my impatience about the mystery surrounding Indie and the desire to see something happen between her and Mr. Glass is due to my obsession with the series, or slack of C.J. Archer. I’m sure it is on me, I’m not a very patient person.

The pace of this book moved much like the first – fast and furious. I enjoyed it more than the first and second. I downloaded the next one “The Magician’s Diary”. I’m excited to start reading it and see what adventure Matt and Indie experience.

But first, I signed up for C.J. Archer’s newsletter and downloaded The Traitor’s Gamble. On her site, she says that this is set 5 years before The Watchmaker’s Daughter, but should be read after reading The Watchmaker’s Daughter.

No, TNT yet, but I retain a positive attitude.

Apothecary's-Poison -C,J-Archer

When a newspaper report of a medical miracle catches Matt’s eye, he and India go in search of Dr. Hale in the hope he is more magical doctor than miracle worker and can lead them to Chronos. But Hale turns out to be an apothecary magician keen to educate the public about magic.

 Their disappointment at not finding Chronos is soon forgotten when Hale is murdered, and Matt becomes a suspect. With Matt’s nemesis Sheriff Payne influencing the investigating detective, India and Matt know they must find the real killer, or risk his freedom, and ultimately his life. Time is running out as they hunt for a killer capable of turning medicine into poison with a magic spell, as well as continue the search for Chronos. A search that must end in success before Matt’s malfunctioning watch stops altogether.
