Entertaining, exciting, and a humdinger of a cliffhanger at the conclusionAre you okay Have you looked in to the Glass yet Jenna s voice came from the cupboard Um yes I m looking now What can you see Nothing.
nothing it s just dark oh, wait I can see something now it it s weird an old man staring at me He looks kind of surprised An old man asked Jenna Oh, that s odd What Jenna could bear it no longer She hurtled down the steps and arrived in the Robing Room just in time to see Septimus spring back from the Glass, slip on the shiny marble floor and fall As he scrabbled to get up and away, Jenna screamed Reaching out of the glass we re too old, wizened hands With long bony fingers and curved yellow nails, they snatched at Septimus is tunic, grabbed hold of it, then wrapped themselves around his Apprentice belt, dragging him toward the Glass Frantically Septimus tried to pull away, kicking out at the clutching talons Jen Help, Je he yelled, and then there was silence Septimus s head had disappeared into the Glass as though sinking into a pool of ink.
Physik by Angie Sage is the third book in the Septimus Heap series and was just as exciting as the first two I m listening to this series on audiobook, narrated by Gerard Doyle,whose flawless, 5 performance adds an extra bit of excitement to the story I really enjoy the characters in this series as they are unique and enchanting Angie Sage effortlessly creates both likeable characters, horrible, evil characters, and some who are a bit of both The adventures are treacherous and keep me intrigued and captivated from beginning to end, making it difficult to stop listening I m always looking for excuses to return to the story as often as possible The ending of this book left me on tenterhooks, anxiously awaiting to listen to Queste, the next adventure in the Septimus Heap series I m a big fan of this series Ghosts, witches, dragons, spells, secret cupboards and tunnels, boggarts, sailing ships, queens, wizards, herbs and magic ringseverything you could possibly imagine in a magical castle realm Mix that with Shakespearean style mischief comedy of errors very human errors and mistaken identity And, on top of all that, the characters are lovably ordinary the children make friends in a natural, uncalculated way, and the adults are soimperfect Lots of fun I tried persevere I really did I read the first two from beginning to end I couldn t do it with this one The tediousness and annoyingly long paragraphs explaining every thought and action became too much for me The book could really have been done in 100 pagesif that I ended up skimming quickly through it, after reading the first ten chapters, and then I read the bits at the end about what happened to characters I got the gist of the book just by doing that and saved myself manydays of dragging this book out I really couldn t even bare the idea of extending it with the library, I wanted this book out of my house So it s now safe to say, I won t be reading the last two books My curiosity just isn t bothered about finding out what happens to everyone Thank god I never bought them as I had originally intended to Reviewed by Me for TeensReadToo.
comI have to state that it s taken me a very long time to write my review of Physik, mostly because it took me such a very long time to finish the book Although I absolutely loved MAGYK, and was nearly as impressed with FLYTE, it was much harder for me to get into the story of Physik I wasn t immediately struck by the newly introduced characters, and even some of my old favorites were, at first, acting quite different than they had originally That being said, though, I m glad I finally finished this third installment in the Septimus Heap saga, and can recommend it to others without feeling guilty The story opens with Silas Heap, father of the Heap clan, unknowingly unleashing the ghost of Queen Etheldredda, a Castle Queen who ruled long ago Along with her spirit is also released that of her pet Aie Aie, a rat dog snake hybrid that is hideous to look upon Although Silas and his companion, Gringe, aren t first aware of what has happened, they ll soon learn that the room they unlocked would have been better left alone Nearly at the same time, Snorri Snorrelssen, a young North Trader, arrives at Sally Mullen s Tea and Ale House and can immediately sense that she s not welcome there, even if she can t understand the language that s being spoken After weeks at sea, however, Snorri is not about to turn her back on her mission, that of following in the footsteps of her father Back at the Palace, Septimus Heap is putting off his studies with ExtraOrdinary Wizard Marcia Overstrand, instead indulging in his new obsession of learning all there is to know about Alchemy He wishes to learn under the famous Alchemyst Marcellus Pye, who just so happens to be the son of the dreaded Queen Etheldredda All of the usual characters are back in this installment Jenna, Nicko, Aunt Zelda, Spit Fyre, and Alther Mella, along with new ones like the above mentioned Snorri and Marcellus Pye Some of them act as they ve always acted some of them act in surprising ways All of it leads up to a showdown of wits and talents and, of course, the next book in the series As I said, I m glad I finally finished reading Physik, as I definitely plan to read QUESTE, the fourth book Although some readers may have trouble in the beginning, as I did, once you get into the story of Septimus and family, you ll be quite enthralled until the very end.
Saking sukanya, 600 halaman pada buku ini aku baca kurang dari 24 jam Ini salah satu hal yang luar biasa banget buat aku p Kisah Septimus bersama keluarganya ini makin seru Lebih seru lagi dari cerita di dua buku sebelumnya Recommended bagi siapa saja yang menyukai kisah fantasi dengan keajaiban keajaiban sihir yang unik dan juga memikat D
You know, I hate book reviews I always feel so inadequate when I like a book other people have panned, and although I don t know of anyone who has read this series and didn t like it at least somewhat, I still feel that my support of these books is on shaky ground insert slightly whiney voice here But I really like these characters And I really like the plots And I really like the crazy narratorial style We zoom around from person to person and it works for me, but then I m always interested in what the other people in a story are thinking, and most of the time those feelings are only hinted at with shrugs, and sighs This is also why I like the Bartimaeus Trilogy, and Artemis Fowl But then maybe I like all these books because they are well written.
and fun It s kinda like Harry Potter mixed with the Lord of the Rings meets like the Time Warp Trio or something I ve really gotten into them, but they re long The fourth one, Queste is almost 600 pages and the rest are like 500 some They usually take me a month to read unless it s the weekend and I have nothing else to do, then it takes like three days My mom, brother and I all are reading them right now.
