by Angie Sage (October 14th 2014, Katherine Tegen Books)
Seven years after the events of the original Septimus Heap series, a young PathFinder named Alice TodHunter Moon—who insists on being called Tod—sets out from her seaside village to rescue her friend Ferdie from the malevolent Lady.She receives help from ExtraOrdinary Wizard Septimus Heap and Ex–ExtraOrdinary Wizard Marcia Overstrand, but the Lady’s brother, the Darke Sorcerer Oraton-Marr, has a plan that will put everyone Tod holds dear in danger. To save her people, Tod must embrace her identity as a PathFinder and navigate the often dangerous Ancient Ways.
I’ve read and loved Angie Sage’s first books set in this world, the Septimus Heap series, so I’m definitely looking forward to reading this. The original series is a very old-school British fantasy with a lot of charm and some really fantastic world building. Alice Todhunter Moon, the main character of this book, was introduced in the Fyre. Even though I didn’t get to see much of her, I thought she seemed really interesting, and I can’t wait to see her story unfold.
