In Archie Greene and the Magician’s Secret, Archie became one of the Flame Keepers, a secret group devoted to finding and preserving magical books that are literally portals into other places and times.
Now, in the action-packed sequel, the Golden Circle — a symbol that hasn’t been seen in three hundred years — appears on Archie’s palm. And he’s not the only one to have it...
The Golden Circle is the mark of the Alchemists’ Club, a group of young magicians from centuries past who experimented with magic — until the spells got out of control, the results turned disastrous, and the club disbanded.
Now Archie and a few other apprentices, including his cousins Thistle and Bramble, have been marked with this powerful symbol and appear to be chosen to reestablish the club. They don’t know who chose them. They don’t know why. And they don’t know what perils they are about to face because the Golden Circle has returned.
This action-packed sequel to Archie Greene and the Magician’s Secret delves deeper into the world of the Flame Keepers and the life of Archie Greene.
