Description-

  • Introducing Alice TodHunter Moon, a Magykal addition to the world of Septimus Heap! Perfect for both established fans of the Septimus Heap series and readers coming to the world of Septimus Heap for the first time, PathFinder is the first book in the Septimus Heap spin-off series, TodHunter Moon.

    Taking place seven years after the events of the original Septimus Heap series, PathFinder tells the story of Alice TodHunter Moon, a young PathFinder who leaves her seaside village in search of her friend Ferdie. Rumor has it that Ferdie has been taken by mysterious creatures called Garmin under orders from the malevolent Lady.

    Full of Angie Sage's characteristic humor and heart, PathFinder introduces a new cast of young characters—and a new kind of Magyk. All the beloved characters from Septimus Heap are here, too—Tod receives help from ExtraOrdinary Wizard Septimus Heap, Ex–Extraordinary Wizard Marcia Overstrand, and Alchemist Simon Heap. A great addition to any fantasy reader's library!

Reviews-

  • DOGO Books bibliophile - This book was AMAZING! I think everybody should read this book, it was with a mix of fantasy and magic; I'm pretty sure everybody will like this witty novel... honestly I don't really read that much fantasy book because some books I read that are in the category(fantasy/magic) turn out too be not to great unlike the Harry Potter series(GREAT fantasy/MAGICAL series) or the Septimus series(AMAZING)... but honestly this was really awesome... but also because I really liked the Septimus Heap series... this book added a nice touch to this series, but even though you didn't read the Septimus Heap series, you could still jump right in to this amazing book! So it starts off with Alice or Tod (she likes being called Tod) being new to be a pathfinder, searches out in a journey... I don't want to tell you guys to much because 1. I'll spoil some stuff (which i DO NOT want to do) 2. you have to read it, because it's that AMAZING!!!! It's just the story is fantastic, the plot and the character is original and witty... and don't get me started on the whole story... the details feel so real I could like sense that they are like right there... it's kind of like the Septimus Heap series, but with a little different style, but once you start reading you'll fall in love with this book (not literally) like I did, but you'll probably want more of these series... Anyways Tod tries to save Ferdie(one of her close friends) from the Lady(or actually the Garmin)... Now it's up to Tod and Oskar with a special wizard to save Ferdie... but saving others Tod may have to pay a price... What will happen? Can Tod help save friends, others, and even herself... and will Tod understand as a Pathfinder to learn and to know how to do some of her tasks? Well it's up to you to read and find out trekking through this mysterious and magical journey! I hope you guys READ it and enjoy!!!!

    Gr 5 Up-This companion to the series set seven years later, tells the story of Pathfinder Alice TodHunter Moon (Tod). It opens with her first MidSummer Circle, when the 12-year-old and the other Pathfinders of age revel in their legacy-a story told by Dan, Tod's father and leader of the Pathfinders. Tragedy soon follows when he disappears while fishing, and she is forced to live with her wicked Aunt Mitza, who soon plans to get rid of Tod. Luckily, her friend Oskar alerts her and helps her escape, which is when the real adventure begins. A dizzying number of characters brings this tale across its 12 parts. Kidnappings, Darke Magyk, secret passages, sailing ships, message rats, and creatures of all sorts pack the pages, taking readers along. Not surprisingly, all of the characters meet up by means of hubs that slip time and space and reveal Tod's purpose. Fans of the first series will certainly delight as characters familiar and new go on new adventures and reveal new mythologies.-Stacy Dillon, LREI, New York City

    With the help of ExtraOrdinary Wizard Septimus Heap, 12-year-old Alice TodHunter "Tod" Moon must learn to navigate the Ancient Ways of the PathFinder in order to find her missing father and save her people. Armed with the PathFinder, a Magykal compass, Tod must rescue her friend, Ferdie, from the evil Lady, find her missing father, and do what she can to defeat Darke Sorcerer Oraton-Marr. However, she quickly realizes that saving the world is not a one-person job; she will need the help of friends, family and some very Magykal people if she is to succeed in her quest. Thankfully, what she lacks in experience she makes up for in bravery and loyalty. Filled with Magykal spells, mysterious artifacts and strange creatures, Tod's adventure is set seven years after the original Septimus Heap series and is both a reunion with familiar characters and an introduction to new ones. Humorous banter, genuine friendships, and distinctive, well-realized settings elevate this story above others of its genre. Readers unfamiliar with the original series may find themselves lost at times, but the strength of Sage's storytelling will carry them through. Zug's black-and-white drawings accompany the text. An exciting reunion with a favorite series. (Fantasy. 8-12)
