    Queste (Septimus Heap, #4), Angie SageSeptimus Heap is a series of fantasy novels featuring a protagonist of the same name written by English author Angie Sage. In all, it features seven novels, entitled Magyk, Flyte, Physik, Queste, Syren, Darke and Fyre, the first (Magyk) in 2005 and the final (Fyre) in 2013. The quest of the fourth book, Queste (published in April 2008), is a journey to the House of Foryx, in which "all times meet", to bring b...

    Ok, so I'm always on the lookout for a series I'll enjoy as much as the late lamented Harry Potter. This is not quite it, but it's not too bad, if you're 12 and need a good summer read. Or if you still remember what it was like to curl up on the window seat on a rainy day in July with nothing more to do than to lose yourself in a fantasy novel complete with wizards, dragons, quests, and Stanley's Message Rat Service. My excuse is I have nephews a...

    This is definitely not going to get darker. The tone of the book remains true to its predecessors; light, amusing and juvenile and I think I’ve gotten used to it. It’s funny how in every book, one of the Heaps goes missing and the rest embark on a perilous journey to find him/her. There is a lot going on at first, multiple things are introduced at once, but then they all fall together with ease and things go in a single direction. I have to s...

    While I really enjoyed the first three books, I feel that Angie Sage has really hit her stride with this one. Now that all of the characters are firmly situated in their Magykal world, she can focus on certain protagonists without the feeling (as in the third book) that she is including a few vignettes to remind us about the existence of all the various cast members. Once again the short chapters move things along quickly as we ping-pong between ...

    Loved it the second time I read it!

    Reviewed by Candace Cunard for TeensReadToo.comThe fourth tale of Septimus Heap delivers action, adventure, magic, and a good share of surprises. The tale begins when Nicko Heap and Snorri, who in a previous book found themselves transported out of their own Time, discover a clue that might allow them to return to their home Time. However, the path home is a tricky one: Nicko and Snorri must find their way to the mysterious House of Foryx, "the p...

    Berbeda dengan tiga buku pertamanya yang sangat menarik untuk diikuti, buku keempat ini agak membosankan dari bagian awal hingga sekitaran pertengahannya. Baru deh, beberapa bab terakhirnya mulai asik lagi dibaca. Semoga buku kelimanya bisa sesuai ekspektasi saya.

    While this book was good, I didn't think it was as well done as the other Septimus Heap books. The story seemed less developed, without as many of the little details that make everything work out in the end so well and cleverly as in the other books. But I still liked it and I look forward to reading Septimus #5! ...I just hope it's a little more original.

    خوب بود فقط هیجانش کم بود . البته تا جلد چهارش خوندم فعلا پرواز و فیزیک از همه قشنگ تر بوده به زودی جلد پنجمم شروع میکنم

    DISCLAIMER: Would have read this book sooner, but a friend of mine paid for my Warped Tour ticket at the last minute and I HAD to go.Such an improvement over the last book, Physik, where it felt eerily too similar to Prisoner of Azkaban, when it came to the time travel element. Plus, It was boring.This installment is what the title says, a Quest(e) to undo the events of what happened at the end of the last book. Also, it's a quest until the very ...

    When "Physyk" ended, Nicko and Snorri were stranded in Marcellus Pye's time. Septimus and Jenna were determined to retrieve their brother Nicko no matter what and perhaps Snorri incidentally. Meanwhile, Merrin Meredith has muddied the waters by creating a Thing which he offloads on Tertius Fume who is just looking for a way to create havoc for Marcia, the ExtraOrdinary Wizard. Septimus is tricked into accepting a Queste stone from which no Appren...

    This is the fourth book in the Septimus Heap series by Angie Sage, and I have to say that it's as good as the other three. I enjoy the characters, the settings, the stylistic originalities. It is not a Harry Potter clone, it can stand well on its own. Good story, likable people, cool magic, even a dragon and some ghosts thrown in, with enough chilling "Darke Magyk" to raise the hair on the back of my neck, without being as scary as some of the la...

    Vždycky, když si potřebuji odpočinout od krutopřísněhustých fantasy s hektolitry krve a YA žánru, sáhnu po dalším díle této série. Tohle je totiž to, co v takovou chvíli potřebuji. I když je pravdou, že celá série je spíše pohádka, ani mi to nevadí - rád se vrátím do těch let, kdy jsem si myslel, že všechno funguje tak, jak chci. Výprava za hrdinstvím byla vtipná, pěkná a pohádková, takže si nemám na co s...
  • ✨Susan✨
    Extraordinary wizards, flying dragons, dragon rings, chanting witches, fairy boats, time travel, talking rats, magical mirrors, trees, sleds, floors, wolf boys, shape shifting cats and questing stones. What more could you want in a fantasy. These are exciting, suitable adventures for young children and adults alike.
  • Josephine
    This is my most favorite out of all the books in the series that I've read so far. I love Spit Fyre's humour, it made the book more enjoyable [Merrin's idiocy too, LOL!]. Looking forward to reading the next book! ^_^
  • These Violent Delights (Robin)
    Great series for young kids who are not yet ready for Harry Potter or are looking for a similar story to dip there toes into. Beloved series of my childhood.
  • Debbie
    I just love these books! It was witty and kept you on the edge of your seat. It is amazing what kind of creative story lines Angie Sage is able to come up with. I highly recommend it!

    AWESOME BOOK!! This is totally my favorite Septimus Heap book. Now on to Syren!

    I found I got through this Septimus Heap book much quicker than the others. It still took a while to get going but the end of the previous book (Physik) felt like much more of a cliff hanger than the previous books in the series so Queste felt like more of a sequel than just another book with the same characters. I wanted to find out what had happened after the last book so I was eager to get going. I was pretty impressed to, I’ve liked the oth...

    Well, After a rather disappointing continuation in the previous book (my personal opinion, so no heart feeling) I was surprised to read the next book Queste which was as good as the First book in the series. The story continues with Septimus treating the people from Sicknesse, and later had himself preoccupied with his assignment as an Apprentice. ON the other end, the fake Septimus Heap with the real name of Merrin Meredith has a plan on his own...

    I'm at the beginning of Queste now and it is already very interesting. Nicko cannot be found still, you'll have to read the book before this, Physik, or you won't understand what is going on, and people are searching for him everywhere. Nicko and Snorri have been stuck in another time period during the 1500s for 6 months now. To add more excitement, the apprentice of Simon Heap, Septimus' brother, has some dark plans to take Septimus' place and h...
  • Aman McSkirtySkirt
    A character strength that Septimus had in this story is Perseverance. He shows this by pushing through the Darke Spell cast in the passage by standing his ground and summoning all of his Magyk to defeat the Spell
  • Baige Bell
    Such a cute book. This series gets better with each story. I'm loving them!
  • Kathy Davie
    Fourth in the Septimus Heap fantasy series for middle-grade readers and revolving around the Heap family. The focus is on Beetle.My TakeIt takes almost 200 pages before we start to get to the purpose of the story, and thoughout, it's an odd combination of Roald Dahl, Harry Potter, and Disney with that fun sense of gross that Dahl brings to a story — I mean, a banana-bacon chew?? ewww — the supportive camaraderie of Harry Potter and his friend...
  • Danielle Brenner
    3.5. Found it slower than the last book, which I enjoyed. Glad to see more of Beetle and the other heap boys.
  • Nighteye
    All of those before can be read without needing the one before but here a vital part of the book influencing this making it a duology with book 3. Still good, likable characters and some not so, nice illustrated and still the same expanding good and clever world.
  • Stephanie (Bookish Plans)
    {Rated G} I enjoyed jumping back into the characters and it was great to see more from the rest of the Heap brothers who have been living in the forest. But, I did find that certain parts kind of dragged and there were a few things that didn’t quite make sense to me in the scheme of things. Perhaps those will be explained more in the next book? Over all, I did have fun reading about the House of Foryx and how it’s a place where all times meet...
