When a strange firemark appears on Archie's hand, as well as those of his cousins Thistle and Bramble, it seems they're part of an ancient curse that threatens the very existence of the Museum of Magical Miscellany.
Together with their friends Arabella and Rupert, the three reform the ancient Alchemist's Club in the hope of being able to write their own magic to break the curse and save the museum.
Just as fast-paced as the first book, and with the same wonderful word play, Archie Greene and the Alchemist's Curse is a great sequel. In fact, this is developing into a fantastic series!
