Kid’s Book Review: “Queste” by Angie Sage


This is book four in a series of eight. Here you can read about book three.

In book three, Nicko (Septimus’ brother) and Snorri went back in time 500 years to try to find Septimus, who managed to get back to the future. Now Nicko and Snorri are still trapped back in time in the house of Foryx.

In this book, Septimus, his sister Jenna, and Beetle all go to the crossroads of the forest to begin a journey to help bring heir friends back.  They are intercepted  by Tertius Fume (first ever Chief Hermetic Scribe) and the evil Merrin Meradith, who want to darken Septimus’ fate by sending him on the Queste, which nobody has ever returned from.

I loved this book! It was exciting, interesting, and a great story.

Kid’s Book Review: “Physik” by Angie Sage

Physik by angie sage

This is book three in a series of eight. Here you can read about book two.

Septimus is now interested in Physik (a form of alchemy). Marcia (his wizard teacher that he is apprentice to) doesn’t agree with this study because she says it a waste of time and doesn’t accomplish anything. She believes that magyk is the only study worthwhile, so she forbids Septimus from studying Physik.

Queen Etheldredda is an evil spirit who pushed Septimus into the moat and he would have died if she hadn’t saved him. Because she saved him, she has a power over him called a ‘retrieve’ which means she can control him completely otherwise he will die. This power only lasts for 24 hours, so she uses it to send him into the looking glass so she can take over the castle without him interfering.

While in the looking glass, Septimus goes back 500 years in time and is found by the alchemist Marcellus Pye and he decides to study under him.

I am really enjoying this series. As I write this, I am already half way through the next book “Queste”.  These books are easy to get into and very difficult to put down. This author creates a world that is very exciting and fun, and I love to visit as much as possible.

Kid’s Book Review: “Flyte” by Angie Sage

Flyte by Angie Sage

This is book two from a series of eight. Here you can read about book one.

In this book we go back in time, and Septimus Heap is the main character. He is apprenticing to become a wizard under the ExtraOrdinary wizard Marcia Overstrand.

Septimus has an older brother named Simon who is a dyrke wizard and is causing trouble. Under direction of Domdaniel (an evil spirit), Simon captures Princess Jenna because she is the one that will prevent the evil spirit from getting back his human body.

I am really enjoying this series and am happy that there are so many sequels.
