    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 ...

    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.

    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...

    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

    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...

    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.

    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 ...

    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
  • 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.
  • Lucy
    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...

    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...

    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!
  • 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...

    3.5. Found it slower than the last book, which I enjoyed. Glad to see more of Beetle and the other heap boys.
  • Baige Bell
    Such a cute book. This series gets better with each story. I'm loving them!
  • 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.

    Overall, I'm really enjoying this series. But some of the books seem better put-together than others. This one seems to have a few issues. I was expecting the story thread of the dragonboat and the remedy that Jenna picked up during her foray into the past in book 3 to at least be mentioned in this book. I am greatly puzzled that Jenna did not seem to use the remedy or even remember it when she returned to her own time. I also had a lot of issues...
  • Martha
    Yes this is still predictable, as most children's books are, but with Angie Sage, it's the story telling that is sort of like a journey that you look forward to. Or at least, I look forward to. That was something I forgot so I thought I'd put off reading this because I thought it might be too predictable. It's about a quest where no other wizard has returned from. Septimus Heap, the lead character, will take that journey so of course I know he wi...
  • Janie Johnson
    I think that this installment of The Septimus Series has been my favorite so far, and the last of my rereads. I was totally engaged with this story moreso than the others I think. I love the imagery that Angie Sage creates in each of these books. They are quite refreshing and enjoyable even though they are middle grade books.So keeping this simple, our trio Beetle, Jenna, and Septimus, tries to rescue Nikko and Snorri in this book. And they find ...
  • Aaronaldridge
    This is the fourth book in the Septimus Heap series that is filled with ADVENTURE, ACTION and MAGIC. To tell the truth I really enjoyed this book. The main object of this book was three characters Septimus, Jenna, and Beetle go on an adventure to save Nicko and Snorri who are trapped in the house of Foryx. They can not leave the house of Foryx until someone from their time goes into the house then they can leave.On their way to rescue Nicko and S...
