Editorial Reviews


**FIVE STARS**  "The Elixir grabbed me into its fast-paced, brisk action from the first couple of chapters and had me hooked. The sharp, visceral writing and strong protagonists make for an entertaining ride. Pacing is expert, situations use science and history inventively, and the story just keeps going right until the conclusion that hints of more to come. Any reader of urban fantasy should grab this one right away and get hooked on the series--it's got everything. The world is fascinating, hilarious, and involving, and puts JB Michaels high on my list of authors. - Sarah Scheele for Readers' Favorite
**FIVE STARS** I had a marvelous time reading The Elixir. Michaels' action-packed scenes are fabulous, and there's plenty of humor in this story that doesn't always take itself quite so seriously -- and that's a good thing. I especially enjoyed seeing how Bud teams up with professional student and current archaeologist, Ivy Zheng, to solve the mystery behind the Elixir and the murder of Ivy's friend. Michaels' homages to Victorian horror were a real treat to discover as well."  -Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite
**FIVE STARS** JB Michaels has created another captivating, exciting urban fantasy in The Elixir. Imaginative and fast-paced, this is a story you just can't put down as you sit on the edge of your seat, wondering what could possibly happen next. Michaels uses advanced technology, good old-fashioned investigative techniques, and plenty of faith to guide Bud through this adventure that keeps you riveted to the pages as he tries to save his friend, the city, and his own soul. Great story!-Melinda Hills for Readers' Favorite
**FIVE STARS** This is a really fun, action packed read. From the diary of Victor von Frankenstein to the hidden traits of ancient artifacts, this book has some serious charm." - KJ Simmill for Readers' Favorite
