Teen Review: Queste

Title: Septimus Heap: Queste
Author: Angie Sage
What type of book is this? Fantasy
Review by: Luke King, 18

Summarize the book (without giving away the ending):
In the fourth installment of the Septimus Heap series, Septimus and his friends trek  through the forests and other dimensions in order to bring his brother, Nikko, back from another time. To add to Septimus’ troubles, he is also sent on a dangerous queste by Tertius Fume, a cranky ghost who has it in for the wizarding world. On the way to the House of Foryx, Septimus has an encounter with a Thing, Merrin Merredith, and a Bridge Toll Man. Will the queste finally end Septimus apprenticeship to Marcia Overstrand or will he too, be stuck in another time?

How did the book affect you?
This book was an enjoyable read, and can be compared to Harry Potter, although most books that have had that comparison have come up short in my opinion. But all in all, this book will keep you up at night, reading just one more chapter and then another.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would recommend this to a friend; especially one who is still in that post “Harry Potter” slump. Though the Septimus Heap series does not contain the swagger of Harry, Ron, And Hermoine, it can be considered something to hold you over until the next Harry Potter film is released in theaters.
