    One thought on “Going Viral”

    1. 2.5 starUnfortunately, Going Viral was not the best addition to this series. I adored The Potion Diaries for its unique premise and colourful cast but this sequel just did not live up to the standard. Pros:• The world. I love gritty, dark fantasy worlds but there is a special place in my heart for Nova. I adore how it effortlessly blends modern technology and magic/alchemy to create this setting that is somewhat light-hearted and fluffy but maintains that fantastical feel.• The alchemy. If y [...]

    2. Another fantastic installment in The Potion Diaries. I could feel the heat from the volcano and I, too, was craning my neck to get a glimpse of the phoenix. I hope there are more books in this series because it's definitely a niche of the fantasy YA genre (potions mixing!) that is not represented elsewhere. The stories are fast-paced and heartfelt, a stellar combination.I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley for review consideration.

    3. "This is a moment I didn't know I had been waiting for. A connection to a past I knew too little about. Now, I feel parched - my thirst for knowledge only partially quenched. There is so much reading to do in the world. I want to absorb it all."4/5This review can also be found on my blog!I'd been anticipating this book for over a month, especially since the previous one, Royal Tour, had left us all hanging. This was a remarkably sweet conclusion to an endearing series - the Potion trilogy - [...]

    4. I love this trilogy, it's fun, it's original, the MC is determined and ambitious and easy to root for. This trilogy is my little pick me up when I'm feeling crappy, it brightens my day and always puts a smile on my face. Except for the time I found out that this was the final book and it was actually only a trilogy and not a series.I actually got quite distressed about that, I'm not going to lie! But this is a fantastic ending to the trilogy and I'll forever lowkey hope for another bookor two. G [...]

    5. In the 3rd and final instalment of the Potion Diaries trilogy, we see our alchemist heroine Sam attempt to save Princess Evelyn from a mysterious virus and her new husband Stefan (who I found a seriously menacing villain). This book felt a lot darker to me than books one and two, somehow and I found it totally gripping as I read the book in a day. Alward builds the tension of the mystery perfectly and expertly lets the reader in on information throughout, and it`s really interesting to read a PO [...]

    6. This review originally appeared on littlenovelist.Firstly, I just want to say that this cover is RIDICULOUSLY beautiful. I loved the style of all the Potion Diaries covers. The colours and style is a perfect combination. This series continues the story of Sam Kemi, Master Alchemist. I absolutely love Sam as a character, she's so determined to learn and prove the truth about the deadly virus spreading through the world. All the characters in this novel were effortlessly portrayed and I could see [...]

    7. It was a nice conclusion to a magical series, but this book lacked something that the other two didn't and I'm not quite sure what that is. I feel like my favourite parts of the last two books were when they explored the Wilds, which they didn't do as much of in this book, but when they did it was kick-ass fantastic. I also feel like to many new magical concepts were introduced that at times it was somewhat difficult to keep up. I loved the first two because they are set in a fantasy world that [...]

    8. 'The Potion Diaries: Going Viral' continues the series about Sam Kemi, Master Alchemist, as she is called upon to once again save the day. A strange virus is spreading through the city; Princess Evelyn has disappeared and no one seems to know how to stop events from endangering all of the Talented. It's up to Sam to work out what's going on and to put things right.A sub-plot in the book is the fact that Sam is the subject of a documentary being made about her. As well as following her as she tra [...]

    9. I loved the idea of this book ( and the cover) but the story fell a little flat for me. It was an easy and enjoyable read but I think fell short in that it was a mix of contemporary YA and fantasy but didn't do either especially well. Also, I haven't read the first two and just based on other readers preferences, it sounds like the above may be true in those. I am definitely going to read those as well as I did like the concept and the MC and hoping I can fall in love this series as a result.

    10. It was a really easy read with a great story behind it, although I would have loved to have found out what happened to Evie and trina. I was also a little sad about how Zain and Sam turned out, but I did feel sorry for Zain being in everyone else's shadows throughout the series. For the two reasons of wanting to know what happens to Evie and trina and Sam and zain, I really hope there's another book in the series!

    11. Still fun even if this book is a bit darker than the first two book.I love Sam she is such a great character and even if the book is a bit similar in the plot I still had fun. And I love the ending

    12. Great wrap up for this trilogy (although I wouldn't be opposed to more books in this series!). Great characters, lots of suspense in the story, strong roles for the princess and Sam's sister in this one. Terrific!

    13. I'm sad that this is the last one. It was a good last one though. Lots of lovely peril and adventure, a bit mysterious. The whole dream world was pretty cool. I'd kind of like a book about Raluca, though.

    14. Another great installment in the Potion Diaries series - will there be more? I think so. The characters are still fresh and I think better developed now after having spent time with them in both previous books. Worth reading if you enjoy magic, adventure and mystery.

    15. A great conclusion to the series. Very sad it is over. The plot idea is very different to the other 2 but I loved it best book in the series.

    16. i adored the book (and this series). it’s so easy to pick up and read and the storyline had me complete hooked! definitely a good addition to the series and would 100% recommend this series as a whole.

    17. I'm a little bit sad that the Potion Diaries have come to an end, it's been such a fun trilogy. I whizzed through the final instalment at record speed, especially considering how terrible I've been at concentrating on reading lately.The kingdom of Nova is safe now that Princess Evelyn has married and shared her power, yet alchemist Sam Kemi isn't relieved yet. She hasn't heard from Evelyn since her wedding day and there's a mysterious virus spreading across the land, zapping talented's magic.At [...]
