The follow-up to Maile Meloy's first young-adult novel, "The Apothecary," The Apprentices picks up the adventure pretty much where it left off without missing a beat. It's two years later and Janie Scott is trying to put the pieces of her fragmented memory back together. It seemed like a dream, but so real! Meanwhile, Benjamin is on his own mission with his father halfway around the globe. Superbly written, The Apprentices is a fantasy adventure that still manages to seem plausible and realistic.
