Review

Winner of Silver Ippy BRAG Medallion Award

"This is a well thought out fantasy world and the game of comet is fascinating. I look forward to reading the next book and finding out where it leads the characters."

..". Secret potions and magical books place this firmly in the fantasy genre and the gamesmen, relying on the elixir to compete against much stronger teams, reminded me of Harry Potter's 'Quidditch' contests. This is, of course, book one of a series, so we are literally left at the quayside ready to sail on to further adventures. I for one will be looking forward to the journey!"

"Well I have to say it was SHEER DELIGHT reading this book."

Product Description

"WINNER OF SILVER IPPY ∞ BRAG MEDALLION"


When a young apprentice makes a mysterious elixir from a recipe in an old book, she's suddenly the talisman for a daring Gamesman - and the weapon in the conspiracy against a prince.


Marra never heard of Birr Elixir. But when Drail sees the potion in her dead mistress's book, she agrees to make it. Even lacking the right ingredient.

And after drinking it, Drail and his men defeat a Skullan team - something no one has ever done before. Marra is offered a place as his traveling potions mistress. Full of doubts of her own ability, she takes the chance to escape her slave-like existence.

Then her potions woke a man who was not supposed to wake.

Now every day draws more attention from the True Masters. And their motives – and morals – are not for the faint of heart.

If they discover the truth …

"The Birr Elixir keeps readers hooked.  … proves to be an outstanding author with this light-hearted fantasy tale. She makes creating a believable, likeable world look easy … for a fun story with an imaginative world and an exciting sport, look no further than Jo Sparkes’ book The Birr Elixir. " -  Andrew Keyser, Portland Book Review
