Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Silas Heap unSeals a forgotten room in the Palace, he releases the ghost of a Queen who lived five hundred years earlier. Queen Etheldredda is as awful in death as she was in life, and she's still up to no good. Her diabolical plan to give herself everlasting life requires Jenna's compliance, Septimus's disappearance, and the talents of her son, Marcellus Pye, a famous Alchemist and Physician. And if Queen Etheldredda's plot involves Jenna and Septimus, then it will surely involve Nicko, Alther Mella, Marcia Overstrand, Beetle, Stanley, Sarah, Silas, Spit Fyre, Aunt Zelda, and all of the other wacky, wonderful characters that made magyk and flyte so memorable.

With heart-stopping action and a dash of humor, Angie Sage continues the fantastical journey of Septimus Heap.


"With entries as strong as this one, Sage's efforts will continue to stand strong within the crowded young-wizard niche." ALA Booklist


"Showing no signs of reaching a climax, this Potter-esque series ambles past its 1,500th page with another escapade that casts apprentice Magyk-worker Septimus and apprentice princess Jenna into various dangers." Kirkus Reviews

In this volume of the Septimus Heap series, Sage continues to deliver a story that, though it uses many conventional children's fantasy motifs and devices, is fresh and entertaining. Darker than the first two books, Physik extends and deepens its world and develops the increasingly complex relationships between characters. More characters are introduced; characters mature into early adolescence, and the mysteries of this world are broadened with hints of Northern Trader culture and the hidden practices of alchemy. Civil unrest demonstrates that being a princess, or an ExtraOrdinary Wizard, is not sufficient to command the respect of a mob. Though this books action resolves fairly well, it clearly references future books (for example, the unfolding of Lucy and Simon's relationship). Whether other points a (such as what the rat-chasing mob is doing by the end of the book) were simply dropped or are relevant in a later volume cannot yet be determined. Queste (book 4) is now available at a bruising 596 pages.

WaddiWasi, May 27, 2008 (view all comments by WaddiWasi)
This was another fun read by Angie Sage. I enjoyed the book thoroughly, and I'm sure kids will love this title. However, with the good comes the bad, and I have to say I was a little disappointed by how little we saw of Septimus, as compared to Jenna. The series is called Septimus Heap, right? Then why does it give so little time to my favorite character?

I feel Angie Sage may have packed too many characters into the tale. It's difficult for all of them to get enough words in, but the lack of Septimus was really sad. I felt Jenna was more the main character than he was.

Other than that, I would recommend this book to others - just hope that Septimus returns in full glory in the next book. :)
